League of Legends superstar Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok completely outplayed his opponents during a solo queue match on his stream.

Faker is widely considered to be the greatest LoL player of all time. He has dominated the game in the mid-lane since 2013 and has won multiple World Championships with his famous SK Telecom T1 side.

He was streaming some of his practice games and displayed some breathtaking gameplay as he constantly weaved in and out of danger to crush the enemy team.

Riot GamesFaker is considered to be one of the best LoL players of all time.

The Korean was playing one of his new favorite champions, Ezreal mid, when he was engaged on by the opposing team.

Thanks to the champion’s mobility he was able to create some distance. But with the enemies hot on his heels, he would have to fight for his life to survive.

He was locked in a small area by a Camille ultimate, while Vladimir and Galio closed in on him and beat him down to a slither of health. For the average player, this would be the end, however, Faker showed exactly why he’s considered the god of the League of Legends mid-lane.

He fired off a quick ultimate, hitting three enemies and eliminating the jungler, before making a split second getaway with his Arcane Shift, surviving on 40 health.

SKT’s star wasn’t afraid even on such low HP and circled back around into the action, taking on the enemy AD-carry and top-laner with the help of one of his teammates.

LoL Esports/Riot GamesFaker easily dominated his opponents.

A brilliantly aimed Mystic Shot finished off one opponent, and it was followed by a perfectly timed ability combo to delete the last enemy, while once again leaving the battle at the best moment possible.

Faker displayed his mastery of yet another champion, this time with fewer kills but incredible movement which allowed him to survive and stay in the battle for much longer than should have been possible.

The Korean player looks to be in great form heading into the LoL World Championship, which starts on October 1, and will be hungry to reclaim his throne.

His first opponents at the event will be Fnatic and Royal Never Give Up, two of the best teams in the world. However, if Faker keeps up this form, he may be too hard to stop, even for them.

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
