Skin Changes

The recently debuted Order of the Lotus Irelia skin has received color changes to her outfit and skin tone in today's update.
Here's an updated set of screen shots following this update's changes: 

'Hexakill: Twisted Treeline' (with BANS!) featured game mode  on the PBE!

Here's L4T3NCY with  heads up on  the return of  Hexakill: Twisted Treeline, which is now back on the PBE for testing and now includes a ban phase!
"Hi everyone! ^.^/ 
It’s about that time again and we’re bringing back another of our tried and true modes, Hexakill: Twisted Treeline! This time around we’ve included one important addition; BANS!We heard you guys last time, so we’ve gone and squeezed bans into our Hexakill champion select screen. This is also a good test for us to see how efficiently we can resurrect old modes (it varies wildly from mode-to-mode, but you gotta start somewhere). 
Some design notes: 
-- Let us know what you think of the bans readability in the Hexakill champion select screen.
-- Obviously if any bugs, etc come up, let us know in this thread!"
