The full schedule has been announced for the return of the LCS in the summer split and it includes some insane matchups.

The LCS will be among the first few regions to return to competitive play after the Mid-Season Invitational 2019, which saw the European super-team, G2 Esports defeating the LCS representative, Team Liquid in the grand finals.

Team Liquid will return from their impressive run at MSI, which included them defeating the reigning world champions Invictus Gaming in a dominant best of five series, to fight for their spot at Worlds 2019 and prove that they can be viewed as a consistent championship caliber team.

Riot GamesTeam Liquid defeated reigning World Champions, Invictus Gaming at MSI 2019.

The LCS Summer Split will start on June 1 and the first game of the weekend will feature an incredible matchup between Cloud9 and FlyQuest, two teams who were considered as legitimate title contenders during the Spring Split.

As is tradition, the two LCS spring finalists will be matching up once again on the first day back in action, as we will see TeamSoloMid take on the previous LCS champions, Team Liquid in what is much anticipated series after Team Liquid reverse swept TSM to qualify for MSI 2019.

Another interesting match up during the first weekend back will be Counter Logic Gaming vs 100 Thieves, both of these teams are among the few who made roster changes to their starting lineups, importing players from the TCL and LEC, and will be debuting new rosters for their return.

League of Legends cosplayer ready to rebel as Vastayan “baddy” Xayah

League of Legends cosplayer Wanderlustica, who made a name for herself as a cosplay extraordinaire, has brought feisty ADC heroine Xayah to life in all her Vastayan glory ⁠— you won’t see many LoL cosplays much better than this!

In 2017, League of Legends developers Riot Games decided to try something a little outside the box for their next champion release. Instead of dropping just one character, they debuted a duo ⁠— feathery Vastayan lovers Xayah and Rakan.

The pair fit like a glove. She was an ADC, and he was her support. The pair ⁠— and their sassy love ⁠— soon became fan-faves in the League of Legends fandom.

League cosplayer rules roost as Xayah

Of course, like any League favorite, there’s been plenty of cosplay takes on the pair. Now, that includes famous cosplayer Wanderlustica, who donned a stunning costume of the LoL “baddy” for an Instagram photoshoot earlier this month.

Wanderlustica’s stunning Xayah cosplay is absolutely amazing. She’s got every detail on point, from the Vastayan’s big busy ears, to her blue and red battle robe, and even the skull adorned on her shoulder from her old victories.

The Xayah outfit also had the purple hood the ADC wears into every game on Summoner’s Rift, as well as her glorious purple and blood-red feathers. Luca rounded out the cosplay with knee-high wrap boots, and tough steel vambraces.

“I definitely loved wearing this cosplay, I love badass characters and Xayah is definitely one of them!” the Dutch cosplayer said of her League cosplay. “I’m so in love with it.”

Luca, who often makes her cosplays before showing them off on Instagram, was actually sent this Xayah outfit from Ezcosplay. The cosplay company had put the outfit together for Wanderlustica, who then added makeup and effects.

Wanderlustica is far from the only League cosplayer to unveil a fancy new outfit recently either. Ariatamagotchi got into the Halloween spirit earlier this month with a perfect take on Bewitching Nidalee, and Sweet Angel donned an awesome Akali cosplay in late September.

Luca also has more LoL projects in the works too. She’s already set to reveal her new K/DA cosplay soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that in November!
