G2 Esports star Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski explains why League of Legends’ newest Champion, Aphelios, is “broken” during his stream.

Aphelios hasn’t had the most welcome arrival to Summoner’s Rift, with players complaining about both the strength and design of the Champion, resulting in him being nerfed in every patch since his release.

Even the professional players seem displeased and Jankos explained what he feels makes him “broken” after reviewing the footage of G2 vs Fnatic in a LEC Spring Season match.

Aphelios is League of Legends’ newest Champion.

The Polish player was streaming League when he got stuck in a long queue for a game, so he decided to watch some highlights of his latest pro match.

He was calmly analyzing the game and sharing some insight on how the team felt at the time when a certain moment with Aphelios came up that sent him into a rant.

“How broken is Aphelios right… he almost gets one-shot and then look at his life steal! Look at it, just look. Look! He’s full hp! How?!” He said, watching the Champion heal to full health in just a few seconds.

Jankos wasn’t impressed with his healing and went back to re-watch the clip, sharing that his team was stunned by Aphelios being back at full health.

“He’s on like 50 health and it took him just four seconds and he’s full. You know, our communication in-game was like, ok guys, Aphelios is very low we can fight… [then] we see Aphelios is full HP!”

The G2 jungler clearly sees the high amount of life steal as a huge problem with LoL’s newest character, and it was quite shocking to see him heal to full health so fast – something no other Champions can do, especially with no life steal items.

Aphelios is set to receive even more nerfs in League of Legends’ next patch, 10.4, perhaps that will bring him more in line with other AD-carries.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

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!
