In this week's League of Legends Waypoint, they cover everything from the start of the new season for eSports to the exciting upcoming changes for East Coast players to help deal with their latency on Riot servers.
Also remember that our giveaway is up--all you have to do is play yordles this week to win RP cards!
We also have our article up discussing the two most recent champions over here so feel free to chime in about the current state of Kalista and Rek'Sai.

After a year with relatively few new champions released, the tail end of 2014 picked up a lot of wind by suddenly adding two champions in the last two months: Rek'Sai and Kalista.
Now that the dust has settled on their releases, let's take a look at them and see how they've been fairing in solo queue. Be sure to sound off in the comments with your experiences against these two ladies--do you ban Rek'Sai? Do you think Kalista is a hidden OP? Let us know!

Rek'Sai

Get Rekt: No, Really, She's a Powerhouse
Rek'Sai is absurdly powerful right now. There isn't really a bad part of her kit and her mobility is intense, opening up tons of potential for outplaying the opponent. She currently has the highest win rate in the game out of any champion and she continues to grow stronger as more players adjust to her. She fits in top lane well and also tears up the jungle, making her a versatile pick.
Rek'Sai took the ban charts by storm in Diamond and higher matches with over a 70% ban rate. Her map presence, her damage, and her durability all factor into why no one wants to deal with her. Unfortunately, she's designed in a way that removing even one of these will likely reduce her to a non-factor--making her one hard void burrower to balance.

Kalista

Underwhelming Potential
Kalista has a rough early game. She simply doesn't have innate damage in her kit, amplified by the fact that her ultimate is a utility one much like Ashe's arrow. Her base attack speed is also noticeably low and she has no modifiers for her attack speed or damage like other carries often have.
That said, she's very strong once she pulls ahead, especially once she finishes her Phantom Dancer or Statikk Shiv. Because of the mobility in her kit, she can kite exceptionally well with little effort--making her hard to pin down in a fight thus increasing her carry potential in team fights. In other words, she snowballs better than most ADCs. However, because of the quirks and her initial lower damage, she's hard to play and it shows in her win rate which is one of the lowest on Summoner's Rift.
