The best offense is a good defense--or wait, is it the other way around? Oops! Either way, this week we're asking you to play as champions with shield effects either for themselves or their comrades. From Morgana's shield to Leona's resistance increasing buff to herself, any champion that has a shield effect counts.

The Best Offense is a Good Defense

To enter this week's challenge:


5 Prizes

  • Four winners will receive a $25 RP code
  • One winner will receive a Riot Blitzcrank or Arcade Hecarim skin code
  • If you have any suggestions for future prizing, let us know in the comments! We're trying RP codes since there have been so many awesome skins lately!

The PBE was updated yesterday to have Twitch's visual update and he's looking awesome: Gangster Twitch, Vandal Twitch, Kingpin Twitch, Default Twitch, Whistler Village Twitch, and Medieval Twitch. There was also the fifth and final S4 championship skin SKT T1 Zed.

Released for URF day, Ultra Rapid Fire (URF) mode has been taking the League community by storm. And we've gathered some intel on it--in particular, we've whipped up some charts for the most and least popular champions along with the highest and lowest win rate champions!
Sona got disabled recently, but other than that, these are accurate. It's interesting to see how some champions such as LeBlanc may be incredibly popular but don't seem to do so well in terms of actually winning.

As a huge fan of the League of Legends esports scene, we wanted to announce an upcoming League of Legends tournament!
The Black Monster Cup is coming to North America this Spring and has been going strong! The regionals have a collective prize pool of $15,000 USD where the winning team will walk away with $5,000 and some hardware. Be sure to check out more on their website.
In other news, we have another week of League Waypoint live today!
This week, Mike primarily talks Riot's April Fool's game mode--he also examined Twitch's new VU, Team Builder Queue times, and the All Star voting that just started.
Be sure to check out League Waypoint's YouTube channel and give them a subscribe if you like this video!

While you're at it, check out our weekly contest and look at the new SKT T1 skins. We took the time to make some charts for URF mode as well. We also have the latest episode of League Trends for you guys to check out.

The PBE was updated earlier this hour with four new skins to celebrate the S3 champions SKT T1: SKT T1 Vayne, SKT T1 Zyra, SKT T1 Jax, and SKT T1 Lee Sin. There is a fifth skin for Zed which is unreleased currently and we'll update this post for him when the PBE makes him live!
As with last year's TPA skins, it's likely these will be limited edition skins that are released in a bundle in the coming month. Which skins do you guys like the most?
