Here's Nurse Flan with a Bugs & Feedback thread for Pool Party Fiora:
"Pool Party Fiora is ready for some fun in the sun - with her pool noodle sword! 
Fun Development Fact: We named the crab in her recall, "Kelly the Krab" after the artist that suggested a fencing crab!

Cooldown Pings on PBE

"Hello friends! Today, we've put a new feature onto PBE for testing. As the title hopefully implies, you'll soon be able to ping various icons in your HUD to automatically message your team with the remaining cooldown duration. However, pictures are worth so much more than words so here we go!
Here John can ping when his ultimate is up so Alex knows when to go in!
Kory is able to tell his team when red buff is about to spawn and also ping dragon's timer to give his team some time to get ready. 
For now, we're working to implement this feature for:
  • Ultimate cooldowns (ALT+Click)
  • Major items (ALT+Click)
    • Infinity Edge
    • Trinity Force
  • Items with cooldowns!
    • Blade of the Ruined King
    • Locket of the Iron Solari
  • Health bars and Mana Bars
  • Jungle timers (Click. Just Click.)
Feel free to ask any early questions you have or any thoughts about this cool new feature! 
PS: Pings are controlled by ALT. The scoreboard is controlled by Tab. Please don't ALT+Tab! We special-cased the Jungle timer ping to not require ALT for this reason! ALT+Tab will not help you in team fights!"
Full list of items it pings
"I think this is the full list: 
Abyssal Scepter, Archangel's Staff, Frozen Mallet, Twin Shadows, Iceborn Gauntlet, Guardian Angel, Rod of Ages, Infinity Edge, Seraph's Embrace, Phantom Dancer, Seraph's Embrace, Zeke's Harbinger, Sterak's Gage, Banner of Command, Sunfire Cape, Talisman of Ascension, The Black Cleaver, The Bloodthirster), Ravenous Hydra, Trinity Force, Warmog's Armor, Rabadon's Deathcap, Lich Bane, Banshee's Veil, Frozen Heart, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, Guinsoo's Rageblade, Youmuu's Ghostblade, Randuin's Omen, Hextech Gunblade, Duskblade of Draktharr, Zhonya's Hourglass, Athene's Unholy Grail, Locket of the Iron Solari, Mikael's Crucible, Essence Reaver, Dead Man's Plate, Titanic Hydra"

Continued NEXUS SIEGE Testing

After making it's debut during the 6.13 pbe cycle, the new NEXUS SIEGE game mode remains up for PBE testing!
Here's Riot Stephiroth with an update on the latest build:
"Hey guys! 
We recently added some chat messages that hopefully will help when you load to let you know what you should do! (i.e., how do I win this mode). 
If you play with this, and see it, can you give us some feedback? Does this help? Do you even notice it? 
Thanks guys for all your feedback thus far. <3 
Additionally some fixes for some things should be in, like:
  • End of Game Screen has new columns with cool data hopefully :3
  • Shopkeeper should always appear after round-swap now!
  • There are probably some cool new sounds you haven't heard yet :3
  • Heaps of other usability and bug clean-up! <3
