While SK Telecom T1 have been on the road to finding their winning ways once again, star player Lee ‘League of Legends pro scene on its head as longtime dominant region Korea didn’t manage to get to the finals.

Coupled with the memory of a heart-breaking 3-0 loss to Samsung Galaxy in the grand finals just a year prior, there were mounting questions if Faker could one day carry his team back to glory.

Explosive play to wipe out Invictus

In a dazzling display of brilliance during the annual cross-region festivities, SKT were pushed to the brink when Faker saw the opportune moment for a hero flank as Azir by Teleporting behind the invading IG.

He flew in to the Invictus backline to put down a very well placed Flash + Emperor’s Divide ultimate which flung the enemy backline into the fray. The move created instant insanity at the foot of the top lane inhibitor tower, as it took a coordinated strike to effectively break the teamfight open.

Faker put his jungler Kim ‘Clid’ Tae-min in prime position to finish off the enemy Taliyah, while he returned the favor in kind by kicking Lux to Faker for the easy kill.

The opposing Sylas however, had some fight left in him after using a Stopwatch to prolong the inevitable. But after coming out of stasis, Faker was all too ready to add the Unshackled to his collection of kills.

All that was left of IG after the brawl was a retreating Kai’Sa played by Yu ‘JackeyLove’ Wen-Bo, but he didn’t last long either as Faker dashed across the wall to claim the final elimination.

The crowd and announcers went wild, as one can be heard saying “he’s back” referring to Faker’s astonishing playmaking seemingly at whim.

LoL EsportsSKT will be hoping to find their spark again during Rift Rivals behind their leader, Faker.

Although the incredible play wasn’t enough for SKT to mount a comeback, it was a great sign to see Faker once again producing awe-inspiring plays at an international event.

The Korean team will need this kind of energy when they start up once again in the LCK as Faker and co. look to improve on their 3-5 record.

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!
