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.

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.

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!
