League of Legends analyst Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare had some hard words for 100 Thieves over their decision not to play Cody Sun at the World Championship.

100 Thieves have recently come under heavy criticism for their performance at Worlds, and their lack of communication regarding certain decisions.

One of those decisions was to leave former starting AD Carry Cody Sun on the bench, instead fielding rookie ‘Rikara’ for all six of their group stage games.

100T came under fire not only because many considered Cody Sun the stronger player, but also because they didn’t give him a game after the team was already mathematically eliminated from the tournament.

LS echoed those sentiments during a recent stream, hitting out at the organization for not giving Cody Sun a chance to play on the biggest stage League of Legends has to offer.

“He better have like fucking killed someone or something. I think that’s fucking ridiculous. When you’re out of contention and you don’t give the player a game, there’s something fucking wrong with you.”

In a recent interview, 100 Thieves head coach Neil ‘Prolly’ Hammad touched on the topic but didn’t reveal why Cody Sun had been left on the bench, instead explaining why the organization had not made a public statement on the matter.

“No matter what it’s going to be not completely truthful, because it’s only my perspective or only the organization’s perspective, and then there’s no benefit to it because it doesn’t change how the outcome is. It would only be like airing dirty laundry.”

Prolly also states that revealing details on the topic would cause a “competition” between the version of events as seen by the organization and the player. While fans might enjoy the drama, Prolly says that’s not something those involved want.

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!
