A League of Legends fan has created a stunning cinematic trailer for the upcoming 2019 World Championship.

Anticipation for the biggest event on the League of Legends calendar is rising with every day, as the start of the tournament on October 2 approaches.

To mark the occasion, League of Legends fan Silvxs has created an incredible trailer for the event, using clips of the various star players and some of the most recognizable moments from the year’s competition to hype up viewers for the coming clash of titans.

The trailer incorporates the running international storylines that began in 2018 – the fall of South Korea, the rise of China, and now the apparent ascendance of Europe as one of the world’s strongest regions – and also highlights key players from around the world, including Fnatic’s Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larsson, DAMWON top-laner Jang ‘Nuguri’ Ha-gwon, and Team Liquid’s Yiliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng.

Many fans are also eagerly anticipating more promotional content from Riot themselves, in particular the release of this year’s Worlds theme song, which is expected to arrive any day now.

No details are currently known about this year’s theme, although there has been some speculation that Lindsey Sterling might be involved, after the popular violinist tweeted a hint back in May that she might be working on something with Riot, the result of which has yet to be revealed.

While Riot haven’t released the 2019 Worlds song yet, they did produce a new version of the classic Worlds orchestral theme for this year’s event, which was accompanied by a video commemorating some of the most iconic plays in the tournament’s history.

It’s also very possible that Riot themselves may produce trailers similar to Silvxs’s ahead of or even during Worlds itself, with the LCS having produced several promotional videos during the Summer playoffs featuring highlights and pro players in a similar manner.

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!
