Super Long Downtime

Here's Chesties with a bit of info on the nearly 10 hour downtime following today's update
PBE is now back up! 
Sorry for the lack of incremental updates, but it was all due to our focus in getting PBE back up again. 
We had a hiccup with our login queue system, and the problem has been remedied.
Thanks again for being patient. 
Goodnight and have fun.

SFX For New Skins

While they were missing 'em in their PBE debut, Dragonslayer Braum, Dragonslayer Pantheon, and Blade Queen Lissandra all received new sounds in today's update!

Dragonslayer Pantheon now has unique sounds for each of his abilities and his recall.

( More info on Dragonslayer Pantheon available here

Dragonslayer Braum also received several new sounds, including sounds for his "head in shield" taunt and appropriately fiery sounds for his abilities!

( More info on Dragonslayer Braum available here )

and Blade Queen Lissandra has new set of horrifying metal sounds to accompany her new theme.

Surprise Party Fiddlesticks Party Hat Fear

Looks like Surprise Party Fiddlesticks' special party hat fear visual effects are back after disappearing several patches ago.

Bot Cover Message

When you load into a bot game, there is now a little message telling you that bots will adjust to your movement and the lanes you don't go to.

Official Braum Feedback Thread

Following his PBE debut yesterday, here's Riot Wrekz with an official feedback thread for Braum!
Welcome to the Braum Feedback Thread. Now that Braum is up on PBE we are very interested in collecting your feedback and hearing what you think about our newest support champion! In an effort to keep this discussion focused and readable please post bug reports in the Braum Bug Report Thread. 

Please remember that more information in your feedback is always useful, knowing what lane you were playing and who your lane partner/opponents were is incredibly helpful. 
Thank you very much for taking the time to post!"

4.7 Team Builder Updates

Here's Riot Blackrook with info on the tentative 4.7 updates for Team Builder, including a new Demand Board feature, that are now on the PBE!
"Greetings PBE testers,
Today we pushed out some new features for Team Builder that are tentatively slated to go live in 4.7 
If you find any bugs, please try to reproduce them and post the steps you used to do so in this thread. Doctah Wayne and I will verify and make sure they get patched up before they go live. 
We're also looking for your general feedback and comments about Team Builder, particularly regarding these changes: 
1. Demand Board: Upon entering Team Builder as a Solo, you will see a real-time list of the most in-demand position/role pairs. (If you want to use one you can also just click the one you want and it will fill out the spec for you.) 
2. Play Again Button: After you finish a game of Team Builder, the "Play Again" button is now clickable for Captains. Clicking it will automatically put you back into Team Builder and send invites to your premade from last game. 
3. Invites say Team Builder: When your friend invites you to a Team Builder lobby, the invite will now specify Team Builder so you can tell the difference between TB and Blind Pick. 
While you may have already seen a bit about this in the 4/22 PBE update coverage, here's another look at the Demand Board in action!

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.
