The League of Legends community is criticizing Riot Games over a strange effect that players are noticing with the Prestige Nightbringer Lee Sin skin.

Prestige skins aren’t like other highly sought-after designs that LoL players can buy from the store. These higher tier skins ask players to get Prestige Points in order to craft them, and with the new year upon us “2019’s Prestige Point skins will become unobtainable outside of Hextech Crafting drops.”

The time crunch makes the effort to collect enough points for skins like Prestige Nightbringer Lee Sin, released on December 12, even more intense, but people are still willing to put in the hours since it results in an immaculate design for their favorite champion.

People in a January 22 Reddit thread shows that not everyone approves the design for the Prestige Edition of Nightbringer Lee Sin.

“I didn’t grind the 100 prestige points for Prestige Nightbringer Lee Sin’s neck to look like this,” user ‘GodGMN’ said. “It’s insulting and makes me want to not play it ever again. Is Riot willing to fix this?”

They attached multiple images of the design in-game, showing the Blind Monk with an elongated neck that doesn’t look like the intended layout for the character.

The bug was even noted in the character’s shadow for the Lee Sin skin.

Players are baffled at how the botched character model made it into the game and are lashing out at the devs for the mistake.

“Riot has been dropping the ball lately,” user ‘Neodeluxe’ said. “This is just shameful, to think this went through all the production steps and even QA and still ended up like this…”

With the amount of VGUs, new champions and upcoming Prestige skins planned for 2020, some members of the community are skeptical if Riot will be able to rectify the Nightbringer’s issues soon.

Since the successful launch of the Prestige line with 2018’s KD/A Kai’Sa getting the first upgrade, subsequent designs have come under scrutiny like Firecracker Vayne and Blood Moon Aaatrox.

Those complaints noted that these editions didn’t distinguish themselves enough from the base skin.

With the reported design flaws packaged with the Prestige Nightbringer Lee Sin skin, it’ll be interesting to see how Riot responds to the community outcry.

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!
