The Harrowing is upon us and this week we're asking you guys to play as champions that have had Harrowing skins--from the legendary Zombie Brand skin to the new ones this year. It's an easy contest with bigger than usual prizes as well thanks to Blizzard.
This week's contest prizes are sponsored by the new World of Warcraft expansion. Are you ready for Warlords of Draenor? From garrisons to epic new raids, there's a little bit of everything in the latest content. We'll be providing in-depth coverage of BlizzCon 2014 and the expansion over at our sister site, Wowhead, as well.


To enter this week's challenge:

  • Simply enter the contest once you have three games in your match history that meet the requirements.
  • Check the rules to see what champions have Harrowing skins.
  • That's it!

Looking to get your hands on some RP to buy the new Harrowing skins? Don't forget to check out Victorious Gaming's weekly $2,500 cash prize tournament. While there is a $10 entry fee, there are tons of prizes up for grabs including over 440,000 Riot Points and 25 Triumphant Ryze skin codes! The format is a solo entry tournament and they match you with other players of a similar skill level. The tournament is broken down into brackets so you will only be playing against players of a similar skill level.

It's been a wild past few months as Summoner's Rift constantly gets updates on the PBE. The latest updates have had a lot of splash arts--so we figured it's time to play as champions with splash arts that have been redone recently. All splash arts after the new Caitlyn splash art released this June are eligible, so please let us know if we missed one or two. New skins do not count.
Keep in mind this is a shorter contest than usual, so be quick to enter!

To enter this week's challenge:

  • Simply enter the contest once you have three games in your match history that meet the requirements.
  • Check the rules to see what champions have recently updated splash arts.
  • That's it!

As a huge fan of the League of Legends esports scene, we wanted to announce an upcoming League of Legends tournament! It's going on tonight, October 22nd, at 16:00 PDT.
In this week's League Trends, the Worlds effect is noticeable--Jayce climbed in pick increases as did Fiddlesticks, both being champions used in Worlds to great avail (even if Fiddlesticks only made one game, he made one that counted).The ban rates continued to adjust after Nidalee and Yasuo were hit with great nerfs a few weeks ago, with Gnar continuously rising along with Rammus.
Thanks to usual to the folks from Cloth5 for this week's episode!
