Season five is right around the corner and we've been working hard in preparation. Today the LolKing team is excited to announce we've changed our chart library so we can bring you new charts and more data in the coming months. From our ban rate charts to our champion statistics in our database, the data we gather is a core part of LolKing and we can't wait to bring you more.


With the initial rework of charts, we're able to:
  • Bring greater clarity to the data we collect. You can toggle the key on any existing chart to narrow down exactly what data you want to see, a feature that's especially helpful on busier charts such as our matchup charts.
  • Track your ranked progression better on our LKS charts that appear on summoner profiles where we've added banding to help you follow your rise through divisions as you hit new goals.
  • Combine charts to make spotting trends easier. We combined win-rates and popularity for both items and champions--to see it in action, check out Rek'Sai.
  • Optimize chart performance so they work better and load quicker while also looking a lot nicer!

We have several updates for season five coming to LolKing over the next few months so stay tuned. Be sure to let us know what you think of the new design in the comments!

Tristana is one of the older champions in League of Legends and she's been long overdue for a makeover. Luckily for this yordle queen, she's getting one! The PBE just updated with her revamp, showing new designs for all of her skins: Default Tristana, Riot Girl Tristana, Earnest Elf Tristana, Firefighter Tristana, Buccaneer Tristana, and Rockateer Tristana.
Oh, but Riot wasn't quite satisfied with just a Tristana update. There are three upcoming new skins on the PBE as well: Firecracker Jinx, Warring Kingdoms Katarina, and Warring Kingdoms Nidalee. There's also Justicar Vel'Koz whose tentacles are a little broken right now, but we figured we would show him regardless.

Most men look quite dapper with some facial hair and the leading guys from League of Legends aren't an exception. From Corki's handlebar to Udyr's manly beard, this week we're celebrating handsome champions with copious amounts of facial hair.
Be aware that we've added a few champions that have facial hair in alternate skins such as Xin Zhao and Fizz (yes, Fizz has a beard in a skin!), so let us know if we missed any others in the comments. Thanks!

To enter this week's challenge:

  • Simply enter the contest once you have three games played on or after Jan 12th with the associated champions.
