Riot introduces new Star Guardian event, prompting hilarious G2 Carlos cosplay

The ten-week event will see new skins released, a new roster of missions and much more.

Riot Games has released their heavily anticipated Star Guardian event for the 2022 Season. The event takes fans on a glamorous journey, which includes a large roster of missions, a music video in collaboration with Porter Robinson and more. There's also a special G2 Carlos cosplay - one that will satiate his thirst for more money (his words!)

The Star Guardian skin line has been a prominent feature in League of Legends since 2015. This skin line is used to provide a positive spin for many League of Legends Champions in alternate timelines.

To help spread the word about their affiliate link, G2 Esports posted a humorous skit which saw CEO and founder Carlos "ocelote" Rodríguez Santiago cosplay as Star Guardian Soraka. The video starts out with Carlos talking about his joy for making money, before transitioning into him cosplaying Soraka.
