Shortened Champion Select Timers Testing on PBE

Boourns has posted over on the PBE boards that they are testing significantly shortened the timing on several phases of the new champion select.

From his post:
"Hey everyone, 
Now that everyone’s played a few games in new champ select, we’re beginning to test shortened timers to move you into games a little more quickly while still leaving ample time for strategery. 
Changes listed below, let us know how it feels!
Pick intent:
35 seconds → 20 seconds 
Bans:
40 seconds → 30 seconds (x6) 
Picks:
40 seconds → 30 seconds (x10) 
Resolution:
40 seconds → 30 seconds 
Potential time cap:
720 seconds → 530 seconds"

Balance Changes

Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out! These are not official notes.
