New ARAM Map - Butcher's Bridge

The recently announced Butcher's Bridge ARAM map is now on the PBE for testing. This new map is one of the many things to go along with the upcoming Bilgewater event!
Before we dive in, here's Riot Bearricade with a bugs and feedback thread for Butcher's Bridge ARAM:
"Ahoy! ... [cough] Hellooo! 
We’re excited for everyone to get their first look at Butcher’s Bridge, our Bilgewater ARAM map, which is now live on PBE! It has all the same rules and chaos of our beloved Howling Abyss ARAM, but with a whole new visual twist. Please leave us any feedback you have and bugs you find down below! For bugs, it would be great if you could let us know what happened and how (if you can reproduce it). 
If you’d like a more in-depth look at Butcher’s Bridge and what’s coming then go check out the Dev Blog here
Thanks in advance for your help and we can’t wait to see you all in Bilgewater, but be warned we will show you no quarter! Lastly, don’t forget to expect some changes as we continue to update and polish Butcher’s Bridge. 
Current Known Issues:
  • Performance -- We are aware that there are some performance issues, but we will be actively optimizing so there should be improvements in future deploys. Please be very vocal if you notice anything and it would help if you could share with us your system information/configuration.
  • Missing Art Pieces -- We know that we’re missing art assets like the loading screen and client art and we will be implementing these later.
  • Missing/Incorrect Text -- There is incorrect and placeholder text scattered around and will be replacing these (for example in some locations like in custom games it is listed as Howling Abyss Test).
  • Missing Audio – Some announcements are missing, but will be updated soon!"

REMEMBER: Butcher's Bridge is set to be on the PBE for a while, it will not be releasing in 5.13.

HUD Update Returns

The work in progress HUD Update is back on the PBE for more testing.
One change introduced this cycle is the green dot, that normally symbolize's your allies have their R abilities ready, now slowly fills up to show when an ally is going to have their R ready for use.

Tahm Kench Texture Tweaks & CS Quote

Next up we have a few updates to Tahm Kench, our upcoming champion currently testing on the PBE.
Today's patch includes texture tweaks and clean up to both Tahm Kench's base and Master Chef skin

Tahm Kench's champion select quote has also been added:

"Call me King, call me demon - Water forgets the names of the drowned."
