New Summoner Icon

A new poro artist summoner icon is up on the PBE. No details on availability yet but this may be an icon related to the KR server art contests just like the previous "Paintbrush Poro" icon.

Cassiopeia Curse Chroma Changes

After their debut in an earlier PBE patch this cycle, the three Cassiopeia Curse chromas have had their colors significantly changes in today's update.

Here's an updated set of turnarounds for each of the colors - Day, Dusk, Night.

Here are the champion select assets to reflect the updated colors: 

Champion select assets have also been added for the upcoming Koi Nami Element and Dragonslayer Vayne Chaos chroma packs.

Check out our earlier PBE coverage for previews of these upcoming chroma packs in-game.

HUD Tweaks

Another patch, another round of HUD tweaks!

KDA, Minion Kills, and Game score are now located back at the top right of the screen.
Champion stats that are increased by an item, runes, masteries, per level gains, or other outside source now display as yellow, similar to how they used to display as green prior to the HUD update.

Here's Riot Rayven with a list of all the HUD changes currently on the PBE:
"As seen in Moob's post, we made a bunch of readability and layout changes to the new HUD based on your feedback. 
  • New font and styling
  • Larger team frames, meters, and ult timers
  • Full square cooldown indicator
  • New colors for CD and OoM for differentiation
  • Larger stat icons and text
  • Larger Ping and FPS
  • Scoreboard now has more padding, larger champ portraits, and larger fonts
  • Added drop shadow to chat
  • Brighter XP bar
  • Larger Summoner spell timers on the scoreboard
  • Active ability events have been changed to gold (level up, toggle, just off cd) to differentiate from unavailable (cooldown, OoM)
Animation and Audio
  • Shortened and pulled back on many animations including level up, just off cooldown, and toggle
  • Pulled back on many audio cues
  • Scoreboard tweaks
  • CS, KDA, and TKDA back to the top right (for those who liked it on the minimap, we are considering an option to choose its placement)
  • Cast bars are back for all abilities other than insta-casts
  • Swapped Crit and Attack Range in player stats
  • Mute button added to scoreboard
  • Colored bonus stats are back"

Fiora Q Icon Tweak

Fiora's Lunge (Q) ability icon has been tweaked slightly to reflect the hair change to her base .
