Yesterday we learned that our friend and ZAM’s longtime copy editor, Judy Freeman, passed away from lung cancer. Judy had been with ZAM Network since October 16th, 2007. Since LolKing is part of the ZAM Network, many of us were fortunate to work with Judy and know her as a coworker as well as a friend. Thank you, Judy, for the time that you spent with us at work and play. It ended far sooner than we all ever expected.

In other news, we have another week of League Waypoint live today.

On this week's episode, Mike checks out the new six player League of Legends mode making its rounds on the PBE as well as the Lunar Revel festival, the LCS recaps from the past week, Thornmail's new particles, and other PBE changes.

The champions in Summoner's Rift aren't exactly strangers to headgear. From Twisted Fate's cowboy hat to Sejunai's helmet, they've got everything from stylish to practical in their arsenal. This week, our contest is celebrating hats and helmets! Any champion with head wear--either in a skin or their default digs--counts.
This week's contest prizes were donated by Hat Fantastic! Hat Fanastic is a single woman operation of arts and crafts, a place where owner Hannah Botts pours her love and passion for League of Legends into delightful headgear based off of her favorite champions. When we saw her hats, we knew we wanted to show her some love. After all, fan projects are one of our favorite things here at LolKing!
Be sure to thank her and check out her Facebook and Twitter!

Cover Your Head

To enter this week's challenge:

  • Play 5 of your last 10 games with the champions that have headgear in one of their skins--see rules.
  • Enter the contest here once your match history is ready.
  • Remember, your games must have started after this contest was posted! Each week people try to enter with old games, don't be that guy!
  • That's it!
