HUD Update

As announced earlier today, a tentative and work in progress update for the in-game HUD is included in today's PBE update.

Before we jump in, a feedback thread for the new HUD is available here, which mentions the HUD will be on the PBE today (6/3) and tomorrow (6/4) before being removed and returning in the next PBE cycle. Please note: This will NOT be going out in 5.11.
"Hello Summoners! 
Now that we've released details on the new HUD coming to League and made it available on the PBE we want to get your feedback and experiences with it!
The team will be actively in these forums and we'll have a Q&A tomorrow on the boards to answer more questions as well. 
Also please note that the HUD will be available today and tomorrow morning on SR and Custom game queues only. After that we'll be taking it down briefly to test and verify the latest build for live, but will be turning it on to all Queues on PBE early next week and will stay there until we're ready for it to make the transition to live. 

Now that the tentative HUD updates are on the PBE, let's take a closer look:

To start off, here's a preview video of the HUD changes as they are in today's update
Minimum HUD size and Maximum Hud Size
Ability rank up elements:
Ability bar example, showing not enough mana to cast Q and that W is on cooldown.
With R toggled on, a ring still goes around the ability.
Clicking the helmet by your portrait will toggle on and off your stats.
Stats listed are - Column 1: AD, Armor, Attack Speed, Range // Column 2: AP, MR, CDR, Movespeed.

If you hold "C", it will show an expanded view of stats.
Expanded stats listed are -  Column 1: Health Regen, Armor Pen, Life Steal, Critical strike,  // Column 2: Resource Regeneration, Magic Pen, Spell Vamp, Tenacity.

On the scoreboard, you can now rearrange players and hover over their name to see their summoner icon. If you rearrange them this way, it will also change the order above the mini map.
You can still mute players by hovering over them on scoreboard and clicking the music note.
When targeting a player, you can now see their CS and KDA in the target window.
Shop and Options menu.
When dead displays death timer on portrait and to the side.
After killing Ashe, her death timer shows up on the right hand side. Can also see Cho'Gath's R is ready via the green dot.
Via options, you can still move the mini map to the left. If you do so, the ally health bars will also switch.
We also have a new channel bar for recall and channeled spells (such as Fiddlestick's W)!
*Remember that this HUD update is tentative and a work in progress.*

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.

  • [REMINDER: Jayce has a large list of changes on the PBE, including being able to rank each of his abilities up to 6 and his R passively increasing in power. The numbers below are relative to the updated kit on the PBE, not to live.]
  • Hyper Charge (Gun W) bonus increased 70/78/86/94/102/110% from 75/80/85/90/95/100
  • [Note: Gun W now has the same top end % at rank 6 with these changes as it is with rank 5 on live. 
  • Hyper Charge (Gun W) cooldown changed to 13/11.4/9.8/8.2/6.6/4 from 14/12/10/8/6/4
