G2 Esports’ star Jungler Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski explained what went wrong in one of the worst LEC weeks ever for the team. 

The legendary G2 team is widely considered to be one of the best in the world and have rarely looked challenged in 2020’s first LEC split.

However, things couldn’t have gone worse in week 4 as the League of Legends squad found themselves losing to both Misfits and Schalke 04 – teams that shouldn’t have been much of a threat to the 2019 World Championship finalists.

Few would have expected the team that made it to the Worlds finals to lose to both Schalke and Misfits.

Jankos spoke about G2’s poor week during his stream on Feb 16, explaining key reasons behind their losses.

“We didn’t lose hard, we did lose, but we didn’t lose hard” he began before really diving into the issues. “Both games we absolutely sucked… [in the early game], but after that, we played very well from behind.”

The early game wasn’t the only problem, as the Polish player cited team fighting compositions to be very strong in the current Meta, as well as pointing to their draft.

“Team fights in this Meta are very strong and I think in both games we had a very weird comp.”

He then tore into their opponents, before quickly taking back his words and putting the blame on the early game once again, although, it does seem like G2 were not impressed with the way they lost.

“Misfits was a free win, there was no way they could win this game. Even playing against Misfits felt like they were so f**cking [bad] – like they were not so great, but we were worse.”

He pointed to the same issues against Schalke and it is something the European giants will surely fix very quickly.

Fans will be expecting G2 to bounce back next week as they take on Excel Esports and MAD Lions – two teams that currently find themselves in the middle of the pack in the LEC standings.

Seraphine has been a hit in the League of Legends fandom, serenading millions as part of K/DA, as well as a solo artist. Few have managed to capture the Zaun and Piltovan artist’s essence as well as Brazilian cosplayer ‘kitsuneraposa’.

Seraphine might be one of the newest additions to League of Legends, but the popstar has already made it big. The support / mid laner has been a hit with fans, thanks to her @seradotwav Twitter account and K/DA collaboration on release.

Her story is the ultimate rags to riches one, and many fans have resonated with that. It also helps that she makes some pretty good music too.

Seraphine has become an iconic part of the Riot musical universe.

It’s made her a fan-favorite from well before she was even released, with many lining up to do casual cosplays of the League star. However, this one of her K/DA skin by ‘kitsuneraposa’ is one of the most decked out ones we’ve seen yet.

Raposa took on Seraphine’s ALL OUT design ⁠— stage and all ⁠— in their cosplay. No expense was spared, and it shows. From the wig all the way down to the platform, everything is absolutely picture perfect.

Raposa was actually brought on by Riot Brazil to do the cosplay, and said her experience was just like Seraphine’s growth.

“Everything worked out in the end and the result was stunning. I ended up identifying myself as [Seraphine], and like her, I lived the dream of being part of K/DA for a day,” they said on Instagram.

While Raposa is more known for her Ahri cosplays in the community ⁠— after all, Kitsune is in her name ⁠— her Seraphine one is easily her best work yet.

From the stunning metallic dress, to the crystal powered stage and microphone, every detail was meticulously combed over.

Her cosplay has won the world over, much like Seraphine herself did, and it’s for good reason. It’ll be hard to top this one for some time, and it’ll be one many cosplayers come back to so they too can transform into the Piltovan star.
