League of Legends streamer Midbeast stunned by bizarre client glitch

League of Legends players have long tussled with the game’s client and its various bugs, but Team Liquid streamer Drew ‘Midbeast’ Timbs was confused after encountering a bizarre glitch in the system.

Riot Games has so far used their single client to house their ecosystem of games which has always featured their legendary MOBA, but more recently the popular auto-battler Teamfight Tactics.

While the client is the gateway to the interactions with Riot’s mainline products, it’s been known to give players a ton of grief over its life despite periodically receiving major updates since it was first introduced.

Even though it serves its purposes well enough, seasoned veterans like Midbeast can still get taken aback by some of the funny things the client decides to do.

During his stream, the Australian was in a pre-game lobby like normal. However, his Twitch Chat noticed something off about the client after the banning phase was done, since there weren’t any champions showing up.

Midbeast, too preoccupied to notice, didn’t realize until it was his turn to select a champion.

“What do you mean ‘Choose my champion?’” he said in confusion. “What the f**k?! I can’t see! I’m in the blind… Dude, I can’t f**king see anything, I don’t even know who I’m playing against. This client is so scuffed bro. How many billions do you need to bloody fix this sh*t.”

Midbeast was positioned as the fourth player on his team to pick a champ — by the time he noticed the glitch, five people had already chosen their characters.

A glitch like that can put a player in an extremely awkward situation since they wouldn’t be able to know who they’re laning against.

Luckily, one of the streamer’s teammates must not have had a glitched client, seeing as they were able to relay the enemy team’s composition in time for Midbeast to make his pick.

Midbeast has been around the LoL scene for quite sometime but even he was surprised with this bug, later joking: “Riot Games is currently on Christmas break so they have f**k all in staff until [they come back]… there’s a bunch of interns typing away trying to f**king fix the client but they have no idea how.”

This might be one of the stranger client mishaps to encounter, but with a ton of projects in Riot Games’ pipelines, they’ll be sure to clean up as many issues with their client as possible.

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!
