G2 Esports star Luka ‘Perkz’ Perkovic has revealed which League of Legends champion he wants Riot to remove from the popular MOBA – with his sights set on Yuumi.

Following the addition of Yone in patch 10.16, League of Legends now has 150 unique champions that players can choose to control on Summoner’s Rift.

Not all champions are as balanced as others, however, and G2’s Perkz weighed in on which character he would not miss if they were removed from the game.

Yuumi has been one of the more controversial champions in League of Legends for her “invulnerable” playstyle.

After his team’s impressive win over MAD Lions, which secured G2 Esports the second European slot for Worlds 2020, Perkz uploaded a Q&A video, on August 22, addressing his absence in the LEC Summer Split, along with other topics.

One of the questions asked to the bot-laner was about his least favorite League of Legends character and he quickly revealed that one of the latest support champs Yuumi took the top spot.

“I really dislike Yuumi,” he admitted, “I will never be bored enough of talking about Yuumi and how annoying she is and how stupid this champion has been made.”

“I really wish that Riot would just accept that they f****d up and they just remove the champion from the game,” the G2 esports star continued, calling for Riot to remove Yuumi completely.

He also highlighted Yuumi’s abilities, which can make her impossible to target in a fight, “there’s absolutely nothing more annoying than this little cat jumping from character to character, and just hitting them, being invulnerable.”

“It’s so unskilled and so anti-fun,” Perkz added, “everyone hates playing it and everyone hates playing against it but its OP so you must play it.”

Unfortunately for Perkz, it is unlikely that Riot would completely remove a champion, however, it is still possible for Yuumi to receive more nerfs in future patches, to provide counters against her unique playstyle.

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!
