One of League of Legends’ most loved arcade game modes, One For All, will be making a shock return on Patch 10.6, and players are already devising some hilarious tactics.

One For All is a League arcade game mode that plays out exactly as described ⁠— you get one champion for all players on your team, and you have to gear up to take on a team of enemies doing the exact same thing.

It makes for some pretty entertaining moments, and now, after almost two years since its last appearance, League players will be able to try it out all again with a host of new champions to choose from.

One For All will be back on League Patch 10.6 for a limited time.

One For All will be making its return on Patch 10.6, and is currently live on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) for players to test out. It will be released on live servers on March 18 alongside the next patch.

One For All last made its appearance in League of Legends during April Fools 2018. Since then, eight new champions have been released: Pyke, Neeko, Sylas, Yuumi, Qiyana, Senna, Aphelios, and Sett.

On top of that, six champions have undergone major reworks ⁠— Nunu and Willump, Ezreal, Kayle, Mordekaiser, Pantheon, and Diana.

Players are already devising new strategies to pull off in the new game mode that haven’t been possible before. A team of Neekos will be able to send out dozens of clones at once to confuse enemies, while Yuumi can turn into a babushka doll, endlessly stacking inside of one Yuumi.

Sylas will also have a fun time depending on the enemy, throwing ultimates back at one another. In a Mordekaiser matchup ⁠— who is also making his first One For All appearance after his 2019 rework ⁠— things will get pretty hectic very quickly.

Some other strategies will also be making a comeback too. A team of Ornns will be able to upgrade every item they buy if it’s eligible, while a team of Shacos will be able to run circles around the enemy with their clones.

Some champions will be balanced based on their overall strength as five, with Riot keeping an eye out for “champions that feel very over or underpowered” among other things on the PBE.

This balancing will be similar to the damage dealt and taken changes on ARAM, URF, and other arcade game modes.

One For All will go live on Patch 10.6 on March 18. Typically, arcade game modes pop up for a two-patch cycle, so expect to see it go on Patch 10.8 on April 15.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

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!
