Master Chef Tahm Kench Tweaks

Master Chef Tahm Kench has received a few texture tweaks in today's PBE update! Most notable are the change sto his color, arms, and the markings on his head.
For his /joke, he also now throws up a dumpling and a hamburger in addition to sushi and a croissant

Check out the 5.13 PBE cycle mega post for a better look at Master Chef Tahm Kench!

Butcher's Bridge Removed

Butcher's Bridge, a brand new ARAM  that will be part of the Bilgewater event coming later this summer, has been removed from the PBE as things are locked down for 5.13's live release next week.
Here's Riot Stephiroth with a note on Butcher's Bridge being temporarily removed from the PBE:
"Hey guys! 
Thanks for all your wonderful feedback so far :D 
We're going to be taking the map down for a few days, which will give us time to iterate on the feedback and hopefully re-enable a better map in a few days. :D 
You'll have to traverse the Howling Abyss to fuel your ARAM needs. 
See you in a few days! :P"

HUD Update Removed

As it will not be released in the next patch, the work in progress HUD Update has been removed from the PBE as things settle down for 5.13's live release.
Over the course of the 5.13 PBE cycle, we saw the addition of ally summoner spell timers to the tab window, ally R cooldown timers, and more! Expect it back for more testing in the PBE in the 5.14 cycle!
