G2 Esports is reportedly set for a stunning move for their League of Legends roster.

According to a report by ESPN’s Jacob Wolf, the team is set to acquire Fnatic’s star midlaner Rasmus ‘Caps’ Winther, while G2’s own star mid, Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković, would role-swap to AD Carry.

Both players have arguably been the top-performing mid-laners of the last several years, each a star player within championship-winning teams.

Caps was considered by many to be the best mid-laner in Europe this season, winning playoffs MVP in Summer and being placed at 9th
on the 2018 Worlds Top 20, the second-highest ranked mid-laner in the tournament.

LoL EsportsPerkz shone in the mid lane for G2’s incredible upset over Royal Never Give Up.

Perkz has played in the mid lane for G2 Esports since their formation, the only common factor across a number of line-ups in a history that includes four back-to-back EU LCS titles, a finals appearance at the 2017 MSI and a semi-finals run at this year’s World Championship that included a best-of-five win over pre-tournament favorites Royal Never Give Up.

It was recently officially confirmed that both G2 Esports and Fnatic will return to the newly-rebrand LoL European Championship as one of ten franchises in 2019.

With the off-season having officially begun as contracts across all regions came to an end on November 19, major roster news is already surfacing, with confirmation of Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok’s future and big moves for NA LCS champions Team Liquid already being announced.

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!
