2) Here's the latest from the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads:

"UPDATE 
Hello! Thank you everyone that took the time to leave your thoughts. The team was able to make a few changes based on your feedback. Updates are below: 
  • Corrosive Charge (W) SFX have been adjust to further differentiate itself from Base.
  • Fear Beyond Death (R) first and second audible queues have been adjusted. They are more audible."
"Update: 
Thanks for sending in your feedback. After discussing with the team, we were able to make these changes: 
  • Renata will be getting her full name for the skin and become Fright Night Renata Glasc! 
  • Her Shield now has more scribbles. 
Thanks for letting us know your thoughts on her ult and her mask. We've decided to keep both as is. We felt increasing the face in the ult would make her ult read more like Nami's. We've heard your interest in Renata's mask and will take that feedback into consideration for future skins! To learn more about what's actionable during PBE stage, please take a look at this post
