The first major international Teamfight Tactics tournament, the Galaxies Championship, is set to kick off on September 3. 16 of the best players from around the world will put their skills to the test in the Convergence, with $200,000 on the line.

TFT esports is a tiny, budding scene, dwarfed by other Riot titles like Valorant and League of Legends. However, the developer is still looking to help support the best players across the world.

The TFT Galaxies Championship to mark the end of Set 3 is the first major international endeavor in the game’s 18 month history. 16 players from across the globe will have the chance to prove themselves as not only their region’s best TFT player, but the best in the world.

The TFT Galaxies Championship will take place over two days. The first day will split the top 16 into two different lobbies. They’ll play five games, with the top four from each lobby at the end of the day making it to the final day.

The finals will work a bit differently though. It’ll be a race to 18 points ⁠— equal to three third-places, or a win and a second-place, for example ⁠— to get to Championship Point. Then, all that needs to happen is win a game. Claim victory, and that player will then claim the crown and a lion’s share of the prize pool.

The TFT Galaxies Championship will be streamed on the Riot Games Twitch channel, as well as the LoL Esports YouTube channel. For your convenience, we’ve embedded the two streams below.

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!
