The LoL World Championship finals are set after Fnatic vs Cloud9 semi-final

Fnatic has secured a spot in the final of the 2018 LoL World Championship.

Another one-sided semi-final saw the EULCS champions sweep aside Cloud9 in a convincing 3-0 victory.


The opening game was a quick stomp for Fnatic, an entirely one-sided affair that took just 25 minutes before the C9 nexus fell. In the second and third game C9 put up more resistance, but when it came down to the deciding moments it was Fnatic who came out ahead both times.

Fnatic is now the first western team to reach a World Championship final since the Season One Championship, which Fnatic themselves won.


Their final opponent will be Invictus Gaming, whose 3-0 win over G2 Esports in the semi-finals was even more dominant.

The final will also be a rematch, as Fnatic and iG have already faced off in the group stage. There it was iG who drew first blood, but Fnatic ultimately took the top seed with back-to-back victories over Invictus on the final day.

No matter which team takes the Summoner’s Cup, history will be made. Since 2013, every single World Champion has been a South Korean team. With that streak finally broken, one of these teams will stamp their name on what could be the start of a new era.


A Fnatic victory would see them become only the second organization, after SK Telecom, with two World Championships to their name. Invictus Gaming, meanwhile, are looking to become the first Chinese team to claim the title.


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!
