League of Legends LEC host, Eefje ‘Sjokz’ Depoortere broke down in tears after G2 Esports shut down Team Liquid at MSI 2019.

The grand finals at MSI 2019 were going to see a new region come out on top at an international League of Legends event, after a series of upsets from Team Liquid and G2 Esports in the semi-finals lead to the first ever North American vs European final.

G2 Esports came out hungry and managed to sweep Team Liquid 3-0 in dominant fashion, off the back of an incredible performance from the tournament’s MVP, Rasmus ‘Caps‘ Winther.

This was the moment many European fans watching had been waiting for, an international major victory at one of the most competitive events in League of Legends history and Europe’s first ever MSI champions.

It appears as if there is no bigger fan of European League of Legends than the LEC Host herself, Sjokz, as she posted an emotional video of herself celebrating the win crying with tears of joy for G2 Esports.

Sjokz was working as part of the on-air talent team for Riot Games in Taipei and witnessed the European’s victory live, only managing to say “They did it,” during her celebration, shortly before interviewing Caps and Perks for the broadcast.

Sjokz’ emotional celebration received a lot of support from fellow League of Legends figures including G2 Esports CEO, Carlos “ocelote” Rodriguez, who replied, “I LOVE YOU SJOKZ.”

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!
