This week on Friday Update Arcade, Lindsay covers a lot of news including some exciting upcoming releases: Killing Floor 2 has hit early access and EA  gave Star Wars fans a first look at the upcoming Star Wars game! There's also the announcement of Total War: Warhammer which took gamers by surprise.
 

While you're at it, don't forget to check out our latest episode of League Trends and read about LoLwiz.

Unfortunately due to technical difficulties, this week's episode of League Trends is not airing. However, we've gathered up all the statistics for the increase and decrease in pick, win, and ban rates so you guys can stay in touch with the current meta. 

This week showed Gragas' rising popularity, followed closely by the rise of Shyvana and Hecarim. A problem for a while now, Hecarim is a true terror of top lane and the jungle--he can even go mid. As such, his ban rate has continued to climb. Champions like Shyvana are gaining popularity as top lane's meta shifts toward taking teleport and smite, meaning a champion that can clear an early jungle camp to gain an advantage is favored in the current state of the lane.
