Popular League of Legends YouTuber ‘Vandiril’ has revealed a game-breaking bug with the Cloud Dragon, where players won’t receive an Ultimate cooldown reduction buff for taking the objective.

League of Legends Season 10 saw the introduction of some major gameplay changes with the Elemental Rift and Drake update, which now turns the map into a dynamic Rift and rewards the first team to four Drakes with a Dragon soul.

While Elemental Drakes have been in the game prior to this update, many of them such as the Cloud Dragon has received some significant stat changes for the new season.

The Elemental dragons rework was added to League of Legends before Season 10.

The Cloud Dragons previously rewarded your champion with extra movement speed after they were killed, but they now give players a 10% cooldown reduction for all Ultimate abilities on your team.

However, League of Legends YouTuber, Vandiril, discovered a major bug with this Dragon buff, which could make it completely useless for some champions.

The content creator explained that the Cloud Dragon’s CDR buff would not be given to any players who had an Ultimate ability active when the Dragon dies.

“So the buff from Cloud Drake, sometimes just doesn’t work at all,” he explained. “Some Ultimates, if they are active at the moment of cloud Drake dying, won’t give you the CDR.”

While the bug has yet to be tested for every champion in-game, Vandiril revealed that there were at least seventeen characters who would experience this bug.

Among that list were plenty of fan-favorite and meta champions that are regularly seen in pro play, such as Twisted Fate, Lucian, Sylas, LeBlanc, Mordekaiser, and more.

Vandiril claimed that this bug could have been in League for the whole year, potentially affecting thousands of matches without players noticing, including pro competitions.

While the extra CDR is not the strongest Drake buff in League of Legends, it is definitely still a bug that Riot will be looking to fix ahead of Worlds 2020.

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!
