League of Legends star Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok embarrassed some of his fellow LCK pro players after turning around a 1v2 with incredible mechanics.

The three-time world champion is praised for his unrivaled in-game mechanics and many fans still consider him to be the best player in the world.

Despite not having as much success at an international level in recent years, the T1 star proved he is still a force to be reckoned with after dismantling two of his fellow pros in a near-impossible 1v2 outplay.

Faker reminded fans why he’s considered the best LoL player of all time.

The legendary player was broadcasting some of his Solo-Q practice on March 20, when he came up against JD Gaming’s jungler Kanavi and SANDBOX Gaming’s Mid laner, FATE.

In order to put the Korean star behind early in his matchup, the pair teamed up on Faker with a gank only 2 minutes into the action. But, it did not go as planned.

Despite being put in a difficult situation, Faker showed no signs of panic as he moved his way around the fight perfectly, dodging key skillshots and isolating his fights as best as he could.

The T1 Mid-laner made short work of the opposing jungler Kanavi, and quickly turned his sights towards his lane opponent, Fate, even flashing under the enemy turret to secure the double kill.

Despite trying his best to help the League of Legends star, Faker’s jungler arrived a little too late to the fight, showing up once everyone had died and was likely impressed by his mid laner’s ridiculous outplay.

Faker seems to be hitting his stride once again, as he has made many incredible plays during the LCK’s recent hiatus, including this LeBlanc play which he survived with just 20hp.

Although his fellow LCK pros intended on setting him behind, they accidentally gave Faker a massive gold lead which he later translated into a win for his team, finishing with an impressive record of 8 kills and only a single death on Pantheon.

Following the recent outbreaks in Korea, the LCK Spring split will be returning to action on March 25 in a new online format for the remainder of the season and Faker is looking sharper than ever for his upcoming matches.

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!
