Hide Eye Candy Menu Option

Here's Riot JxE with information on the new Hide Eye Candy menu option:
"Hey all, 
Recently we added an option to the Game tab in the menu called "Hide Eye Candy". Some of our more competitive players requested the the option to hide some of the less subtle movement on Summoner's Rift. We added the option to disable things like butterfiles, dragonfiles and the water wakes to help competitive players focus on what they care about, the gameplay. 
The next PBE deploy should have the hook ups enabled. Let us know if we missed anything that should've been added and if you have any other feedback regarding this new option. 
Thanks!
~Riot JxE"
He continued:
"Only ambient critters that persist after 1:55 will be disabled with this option. The Duck will continue to haunt your games."

This option is now available on the PBE and can be found in the Game options.
