Faker humiliates League of Legends opponents with jaw-dropping play

SK Telecom T1’s Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok embarrassed his opponents by using his expert game knowledge and creativity to secure an insane double-kill clutch in League of Legends.

Faker is one of League of Legends‘ brightest stars and most fans consider him the greatest player of all time. He has won multiple World Championships while being a dominating force in the mid-lane since 2013.

He was casually streaming one of his solo queue games on Twitch, showing off his mid-lane magic when he turned up the creativity to the max and secured a brilliant double kill, while completely outplaying his opponents. 

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

The Korean was playing as Sylas, a champion best known for the ability to steal and use enemy ultimates, which enabled the incredibly creative play.  

Faker engaged the enemy Mordekaiser and, with the help of his team, quickly got him down to low health. He predicted that his enemy would make use of his ultimate to teleport into the Realm of Death to survive, so Faker stole the ultimate during the fight, allowing him to use it too.

Normally, the Realm of Death only holds two players, the Mordekaiser and his target. However, the SKT star made use of a little known fact that if someone else casts it in the same area, then they can join the same realm.

This way, he was able to chase down the Mordekaiser, who thought he’d escaped and was also able to isolate the enemy AD-carry in the Realm of Death, easily picking off two high-value targets who thought they were safe. 

Riot GamesFaker made perfect use of Sylas’ ultimate to secure a double kill.

Even Faker appreciated his own brilliance, letting out a laugh and cheeky, knowing smile.

The Korean has been streaming and showing off amazing plays like this more often following his team’s victory in the LoL Champions Korea Summer Split, and will likely continue in the LoL World Championship, which starts in October.

Spirit Blossom Ahri is one of the most vibrant champion and skin combinations in League of Legends, but rather than trying to imagine how awesome she’d look in the real world, a cosplayer named Faid Eyren made it happen.

League of Legends characters all have a unique look and vibe. However, it’s hard to name one more fascinating than Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox. She is a part of an animal-like race called Vastaya. They descended from enlightened mortals that harnessed power from the spirit realm.

Ahri has that power too. Her abilities revolve around reshaping magic into orbs of raw energy. She’s also technically a Nine-Tailed Fox, with nine tails flaring out from her backside.

Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, has one of the best-looking character models in the game.

Ahri’s default skin looks fantastic. However, Spirit Blossom Ahri looks even better. It has a more floral and mystical appearance, complete with pink hair, bright blue tails, and a majestic white and pink kimono.

Faid Eyren is a brilliant cosplayer from Ukraine. In the past, she’s dressed up as everything from Demon Slayer’s Shinobu Kocho to Sword Art’s Asuna Yuuki. Now, she’s brought Spirit Blossom Ahri to life.

“Every spirit forgets itself eventually, but I’m always on their horizon,” she said. “Finally, I’m happy to show you the result of our collaboration with @cosplaysky! I fell in love with this amazing costume immediately! It’s not just super beautiful, but very convenient to wear. It fits perfectly!”

The costume, which was designed and tailor-made by cosplaysky, is stunning from head to toe. But there’s no denying that Faid Eyren wore it well and made it look like the real deal. 

Let’s not forget about ears from lulu_cosplayer and the photography edits from gaerwen_art, either, which rounded it off nicely.

It’s hard to pull off Spirit Blossom Ahri since it’s one of the most majestic-looking skins in the game. However, Faid Eyren nailed it, and the overwhelming support and praise from her fans prove it.
