[3.11] Champion Inventory rework is now live on PBE!
Here's Damiya with an update on the champion inventory system:
With today’s deploy of 3.11 to the PBE, we’ve given the Champions tab in the Summoner Profile an update. The release of 3.10 brought with it some improvements to the champion tagging system, removing the old multi-filter process and giving each champion a primary role. The new and improved Champion Inventory includes a broader grid, a role-selection dropdown, and a significant performance boost when navigating between profile tabs. 
When you’re next on the PBE, feel free to check out the new and improved Champions page; we’d love to hear your thoughts on the new layout. If you encounter anything that seems amiss or doesn’t work like you expected, please take the time to share that with us in this thread!"
[3.11] Friends List bugfixes now live on PBE!
Damiya also made note of several Friends List changes and bugfixes! They seem to be a lot more responsive on the PBE.
We've made a few changes to the Friends List and will be deploying them with today's PBE patch. This doesn’t include the recently played, ignore list or chat rooms list and there shouldn't be many big changes, but we want to make sure that the small improvements made do not affect any friend list management. If you have a few minutes, check out your friends list, add a few buddies, remove a few (make sure to re-add 'em if you're friends with them!), and let us know if you spot any bugs or issues that we should look into!

Your feedback will help us continue to make improvements to this feature, so thank you for taking time to check it out and report anything you see here on the PBE forums!"
3.11 Dominion/TT only changes
ManWolfAxeBoss on tentative 3.11 Dominion/TT changes:
"Disclaimer: These changes are on Dominion/TT.
These are still up for change and more may be added, but here's what's going onto PBE for now.

Sanguine Blade
  • Recipe Changed: Pickaxe + Vampiric Scepter + 500 gold = 2175 Total Gold
  • Omen of Famine cast range changed to 500 from 550
  • Omen of Famine cooldown changed to 8 flat from 10/9/8/7/6 scaling
  • Wild Growth cooldown changed to 120/110/100 from 110/95/80
Stone Skin changed to 2/4/6 Armor and Magic Resistance per rank from 4/6/8
Cyclone cooldown changed to 120/110/100 from 120/105/90"
He also noted:
"So far just the SB change is on TT. Considering the Yorick and Wukong changes being added to TT as well though."
He also mentioned:
"And speaking of which, one of the things I've been considering doing with sweeper is making it build from Kindelgem + Fiendish Codex > 20% CDR and remove the MS.

As for the Lulu changes, he commented:
"Lulu has a very strong kit on Dominion. Hitting her ult CD will just mean that it won't be available for every fight (Max CDR at rank 3 was 48 seconds). She will still be strong, but now enemies will have a longer engage window when they don't have to worry about Wild Growth."
