Champion Skins

Eight skins are now on the PBE for testing:


Crime City Nightmare Akali

1350 RP
"A loyal enforcer for the Graves family, Akali took the same deal everyone else did when the Mysterious Gentleman came calling. The power changed her, twisted her into something that hears a siren song echoing from beyond the veil of reality. Now she acts in ruthless, horrific violence, seeking an inscrutable 'balance' even she cannot name."

Here's Riot KateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for Crime City Nightmare Akali:
"I love what I do, my enemies won't.

Crime City Nightmare Akali is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation! 
Crime City Nightmare Akali is set to be 1350 RP.

Crime City Nightmare Akali will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

 

Crime City Nightmare Darius

1350 RP
"All Darius wanted was to secure a place for himself at the top of the underworld. Becoming Miss Fortune's personal bodyguard was the first step, but the second was embracing the power of the Mysterious Gentleman: welcoming forces from beyond space and time that have molded him into something far more powerful than he could ever have imagined."

Here's Riot Dead Thief with a bugs & feedback thread for Crime City Nightmare Darius:

"Scurry, weakling." 
Crime City Nightmare Darius is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation!
Crime City Nightmare Darius is set to be 1350 RP.

Crime City Nightmare Shaco

1350 RP
"Once a mere courier for the Twitch syndicate, Shaco is now barely human. The eldritch corruption has stripped him of reason and identity, turning him into a chittering horde of knife-wielding monsters that haunt the boroughs of Valoran City. None of them are sure which is the 'real' Shaco anymore. None of them care."
Here's Riot Dead Thief with a bugs & feedback thread for Crime City Nightmare Shaco:
"Just a little bit closer!" 
Crime City Nightmare Shaco is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation!
Crime City Nightmare Shaco is set to be 1350 RP. 
Crime City Nightmare Shaco will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

 

Crime City Nightmare Twisted Fate

1350 RP
"No one knows if the Mysterious Gentleman is human or something Else, but he has somehow injected himself into every crime family in Valoran City. With honeyed words and a conman's grin, he convinced them all to embrace the horrors of the Beyond... Now the only thing to do is sit back and watch them tear each other apart."

Here's Riot Dead Thief with a bugs & feedback thread for Crime City Nightmare Twisted Fate:
"Nobody touches the hat." 
Crime City Nightmare Twisted Fate is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation! 
Crime City Nightmare Twisted Fate is set to be 1350 RP. 
Crime City Nightmare Twisted Fate will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

Crime City Nightmare Zyra

1350 RP
"Zyra was once a longtime associate of Graves and a skilled con artist, but grew dissatisfied with the monotony of a low-end criminal lifestyle. Seeing a way out, Zyra merged with the 4th-dimensional horrors from Beyond. She now follows the edicts of an alien power, ripping veins of sentient sludge from the earth and rending her enemies asunder."

Here's Riot Dead Thief with a bugs & feedback thread for Crime City Nightmare Zyra:
"My prey thinks itself clever." 
Crime City Nightmare Zyra is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall animation!
Crime City Nightmare Zyra is set to be 1350 RP. 
Crime City Nightmare Zyra will be available to play soon on PBE! As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts! Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

Context & Notes

1) Here's Riot Aotus with a feedback thread for League Client changes that are testing on the PBE this cycle - "Update to the League Client":
"We need your help! We have upgraded the Chromium version that the League Client runs on. 
TL;DR- We've been doing work behind the scenes to improve the performance of the League Client. Functionally, you should see no change (other than increased performance!). 
However, we need to ensure that all areas of the League Client are still functioning as intended. As you check out 11.17 on PBE, please keep an eye out for any bugs or unexpected behavior while interacting with the League Client. We are specifically looking for things that haven't been seen on live and are new to the build (your best guess is totally fine too!). 
For a full rundown of the work we’re doing, check out our Client Cleanup blog
We really appreciate your help!" 
2) Riot Jag provided some context on the Amumu changes on the PBE today:
"11.17 has some interesting changes in test.  
I wanted to talk about Amumu real quickly. Our goals here are to make Amumu better in higher MMRs, as his current performance disparity is very large.  
Tl;dr - he has 2 Q charges, and we pulled power out of other places. Happy testing!"

He also provided a changelist for Lucian changes coming later this week:

"11.17 has Lucian changes (coming to PBE). The goal is to shift power from Mid Lucian to Bot. 
Base Stats
Base AD :: 64 >>> 62
Lightslinger (P)
(New) - Ally buffs empower Lucian's next 2 (stacks to 4) basic attacks to deal an additional 14 (+10% tAD) magic damage 
(1/2) 
Ardent Blaze (W)
Mana Cost :: 70 >>> 60
Allies proccing the mark also trigger Vigilance.
The Culling (R)
Damage Per Shot :: 20/40/60 (+25%AD) >>> 15/30/45 (+25% AD)
Number of Shots :: 22/28/34 >>> 22 (+25% Critical Strike Chance)
More details will come later this week! 
(2/2)"
