League of Legends pro Marcin ‘Jankos’ Jankowski revealed his hilarious reason for wanting a rematch against Korean giants SK Telecom T1.

Jankos is considered to be one of the best LoL junglers in the world and recently showed why as he was voted MVP of the League of Legends European Championship Summer Split due to his amazing performances.

On September 11, he revealed who he wants to face at the LoL World Championship, and why he’s especially excited about the prospect of facing the Korean champions SKT T1.

Riot GamesG2’s Jankos is one of the best LoL junglers in the world.

“I would not be myself if I didn’t say that I’m most looking forward to playing against SKT” said Jankos, before adding a rather silly reason why. It’s nothing to do with the game, but simply because he wants to meet Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok and take a picture with him.

The two players met at the 2019 Mid-Season Invitational, but the Pole decided against asking for a photo because he thought it would give the Korean a “mental edge” going into their match, and then felt it would be inappropriate after defeating them.

LoL Esports/Riot GamesFaker is considered to be the greatest LoL player of all time.

Jankos is now hoping to get a picture in the World Championship group stage, before any potential face-off against SKT, but still has doubts in his mind as the potential mental edge could be there if the two teams meet in the playoffs.

He seems to have made his decision regardless of those doubts, saying “I don’t know if it’s a good idea to ever get a picture with Faker but if I can, I’d do it because I am still a huge fanboy.”

Riot GamesG2 and Jankos were able to defeat Fnatic to take the LEC Summer Split title.

Meanwhile, Faker also wants SKT and G2 to meet, but for an entirely different reason. The Korean star wants revenge after their last match, where G2 managed an unexpected 3-2 over the Koreans on their way to the Mid-Season Invitational title. 

Jankos may be able to fulfill his dreams of getting a photo with Faker from October 2 – November 10, when teams from all around the world will gather for the LoL World Championship.

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!
