The first stages of the LEC Summer 2020 split finds Misfits fighting for a spot near the top of the table, and Fabian ‘FEBIVEN’ Diepstraten described the shotcalling he’s been working on to keep them in the hunt for first place.

European teams are at each other’s throats since a slow start from typical top-dogs, Fnatic and G2, has given the early weeks of the league much more importance.

Keeping a team’s composure during a game starts in the laning phase and quickly shifts into key macro decisions. It’s here where the pressure to make a call can mount for Misfits and where FEBIVEN tends to activate.

“I’m definitely getting more comfortable, taking responsibility [for important calls] just because I have to,” FEBIVEN said. “I don’t really have another option, and it’s going to be key to our wins.”

Misfits have been on a three-game win streak in the LEC.

There’s a lot that rides in these split-second judgement calls. For the 4-3 Misfits, it’s been a work in progress.

“If my call goes wrong, of course people are going to get frustrated but you don’t want to be in a place where no one is making calls and end up doing nothing,” he said.

Riding a three-match win streak to get to a positive record, FEBIVEN and the rest of the Misfits squad still have more to iron out.

Their biggest test has yet to come as they face off against a G2 side who is looking to spark life back into their split. Misfits and G2 will hit the Rift on Friday, June 3 at 1 PM PST / 4 PM EST / 9:00 PM BST.

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!
