SK Telecom T1’s Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok and Team Liquid’s Yilliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng met up for a “date” at the League of Legends 2019 Mid-Season Invitational.

When SKT won LCK Spring, Faker stated that he hoped to meet Doublelift at this year’s MSI. Following Team Liquid’s own victory in the LCS finals, Doublelift responded by saying “Faker asked me out on a date last night in LCK, so I have to do that.”

With both players advancing to the MSI playoffs, that “date” finally happened, in a meeting that Doublelift described as “the most awkward thing I’ve ever done in my whole life.”

During the meeting, Faker and Doublelift were asked a series of questions for which they had to give their answers simultaneously. Things were going well for the pair until they were asked which key they have Flash bound to, with Faker answering “F” and Doublelift “D”.

Faker has previously been known to describe players who use Flash on D as being destined for a rank of Silver, the lowest on the ladder. Doublelift admitted “I’m not proud of it”, while Faker said “shame on you.”

Riot GamesSKT won both of their group stage games against Team Liquid.

The pair also disagreed on whether they’d rather finish with a score of 10/0/0 and lose, or 0/10/0 and win, with Faker proving more focused on his own stats.

Faker and Doublelift ended by saying they each hoped to meet the other in the MSI final, although Doublelift’s request for Faker to “go easy on me” was met with a flat-out “no.”

If Faker and Doublelift are indeed to meet in the MSI finals, they’ll first have to go through their semi-final opponents.

Team Liquid are set to face reigning World Champions Invictus Gaming on May 17, who have been in dominant form at the event so far, losing only a single game – their last of the group stage, to SKT.

SK Telecom T1, meanwhile, will face G2 Esports on May 18, who beat them in both of their matches during the group stage. With SKT appearing to ramp up towards the end of the groups while G2 began to waver, however, their semi-final could very much go either way.

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!
