The wait may be over for fans anxiously awaiting the League of Legends 2020 Worlds song as a mysterious new track has shown up on the Chinese servers.

Every year like clockwork, Riot releases a new song to mark the World Championships and some tunes have been real bangers. The last three, in particular, have been extremely popular in the form of Legends Never Die in 2017, Rise in 2018, and last year’s Phoenix.

Now, it seems like the 2020 song may have been leaked too, well ahead of the September 25 start date.

The music was first noted by League of Legends journalist Ran who uploaded a video of the in-game client to Twitter. “What’s this song? New League song? Been auto-playing on Tencent League client all day it seems.”

It doesn’t take a music expert to notice similarities in tone between this unnamed song and other Worlds tunes.

The track features a female vocalist singing about competing – a very common motif for Worlds songs.

Notably, the lyrics mention “fire in your soul,” and this “being the fight of your life.” Worlds songs often have lyrics that directly refer to the audience themselves.

On Reddit, some users aren’t too happy with the song, believing it to be generic. “Feels like they just fed all the old Worlds songs into an AI to have it make a new song,” the top voted comment reads.

“Hope not, it sounds painfully generic,” Sodafishh commented.

“I agree that it sounds pretty bad, but it also definitely sounds like a Worlds song. It checks all the boxes. Very disappointing,” Fuzzikopf complained.

We won’t have long to wait to find out for sure if this is the Worlds song or possibly something else entirely. The 2020 Worlds starts September 25 and ends October 31.

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!
