Tencent has issued over 3,000 Chinese League of Legends players with three-year bans on April 24 for abusing an old bug with the popular Forgelord, Ornn.

Ornn has been one of the most popular champions in Season 10, particularly in pro play, for his ability to provide teammates with upgraded items as well as dealing high DPS, despite being considered a tank.

While he is one of the current meta’s power picks, Ornn has still had some glitches and after one of his latest bugs was patched, thousands of Chinese players were banned for abusing it in-game.

Ornn has been a popular pick in League of Legends Season 10.

A bug with the champion’s W, Bellow’s Breath, turned what is normally a short-range attack into a global ability, damaging all enemy players and minions on the map, after Ornn glitches into a wall.

YouTuber Vandiril was among the first to share the Ornn bug, highlighting just how potentially game-breaking and damaging it could be to low-health opponents.

While the glitch is difficult to reproduce and only effective in certain situations, Tencent revealed in a statement that they had issued 3,300 suspensions for the offense on April 24.

“The Tencent Game Security Center will continue to punish acts that pollute the gaming environment and undermine game fairness,” the statement read, according to a rough translation.

They also revealed that the “severe punishments” were taken to dissuade players from replicating future bugs in League of Legends.

Ornn’s W bug, which has since been patched, had the ability to do serious damage to enemies who were out of range.

“This time, a total of 3300 players were punished due to multiple malicious triggering of the use of Ornn’s skill bug, ​​which resulted in the account being suspended for 3 years,” it continued.

Many League of Legends players felt that the punishment of a three-year suspension was quite harsh and as of now, only those who had played on the Chinese server have been banned for exploiting the bug.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
