6.11 PBE Cycle

This mega post was last Updated on 5/26 with the 5/26 PBE Update

( With the release of patch 6.10 to live on May 18th, we started the new 6.11 PBE cycle. )

New Champion Skins

We have three new outrageous wrestling themed champion skins tagging in during 6.11 - El Leon Gnar, El Macho Mundo, and El Rayo Volibear!

Here are the individual loading screen slices for each of the three skins:

El Leon Gnar

750 RP

Here's RiotKateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for El Leon Gnar:

"In this corner of the Rift, we have El Leon Gnar, ready for his next opponent! 
El Leon Gnar will be 750 RP* and includes -
  • New model and texture for both Mini and Mega Gnar, as well as his (Q) Boomerang Throw/Boulder Toss.
  • Quality of life particles have been added for his auto attacks and (Q) Boomerang Throw, to match his updated boomerang!
El Leon Gnar is now available to play on the PBE! As players who experience a first hand look at this content, we appreciate constructive feedback - feel free to leave it in the comments below! If you have any questions, you can also drop them below and I'll do my best to answer them! ^-^ 
*Prices subject to change."

El Macho Mundo

1350 RP
Here's RiotKateyKhaos with a bugs & feedback thread for El Macho Mundo:
"And on the red side of the Rift, we have El Macho Mundo (even though he tends to go where he pleases). 
El Macho Mundo will be 1350 RP* and includes -
  • New model and texture for not only Mundo, but for his weapons!
  • (Q) Infected Cleaver now has four different weapons - a bat, a championship belt, a chair and a ringside bell. These will all be selected at random every time (Q) Infected Cleaver is used!
  • New particles for (W) Burning Agony and (R) Sadism.
  • New SFX for (Q) Infected Cleaver - as well as different auto attacks, depending on the weapon in hand!
  • New recall animation!

El Rayo Volibear

750 RP
Here's Riot Nurse Flan with a Bugs & Feedback Thread for El Rayo Volibear:
"El Rayo Volibear takes down his opponents in a flash! He was made with a lightning motif on his fur to match his theme! 
  • Completely new model! (Luchador themed attire!)
  • Set to be 750 RP* (pricing always subject to change) 
    As players who get the first look at this in-progress skin, it would be wonderful to hear your thoughts and feelings on the new El Rayo Volibear skin! The feedback and bugs you leave here will help us get a better idea of things we may still have to take a look at. :]  
    See you on the Rift!"

    New Ward Skin

    To go along with the new skins we also have a new El Poro Ward skin!

    /Remake live on PBE 

    While we've seen strings appear on the PBE in previous cycles, here's RiotNeuroCat with more info on the recently announced remake option that is heading to the PBE for testing in preparation for a live test on NA during 6.11!
    "Hi everyone, 
    /Remake is now live on on PBE - Socrates gave a good run down of the feature here. /Remake isn't fully complete yet, so expect the following things to be added:
    • Hextech crafting items will not be given out for remade games when the feature goes live
    • Match History will more clearly indicate when a particular game was remade
    • We'll be adding a clearer explanation post-game for high-tier players who take a loss
    If you have an AFK in your game, please take the opportunity to test /remake and give us some feedback. Let us know if you have any questions!"
    You can try out /remake in game by typing "/remake" in chat after any player has been dc'd or flagged as afk for at least 90 seconds at the three minute mark of the game and there has not been a first blood.

    RGMQ Testing: Hexakill: Twisted Treeline

    [Turned off on 5/25 for LotPK testing, leaving up for reference on new changes!]

    Here's RiotStephiroth with more info on Hexakill: TT, which is now available on the PBE for testing:
    "Heya guys! ^__^v 
    Hexakill: Twisted Treeline is back, and ready for action! 
    We've made a small tweak since this mode was last live: 
    New Altar Functionality (note: This was listed in last time's notes, however this change did not make it to live)
    • Passive: The Altar buff now provides a "Chalice-style" Mana Regeneration
    • 1 Altar captured: +10 % movespeed
    • 2 Altars captured: Minions spawn with +15% HP and damage
    We also have some bug fixes:
    • Fixed a bug where Mordekaiser W was not properly giving EXP on Twisted Treeline. (This also applies to normal Twisted Treeline, not just Hexakill!)
    • [WILL BE ON TOMORROW] Fixed a bug where Kindred cannot hunt the 6th champion in the game.
    We also did some minor particle clean-up on the Altars, however if we did everything right, you won't notice anything at all. :) 
    As always, thanks for playing our modes and helping us squash bugs. <3 If you see a bug, feel free to report here! And if you have feedback, drop a comment below."


    • Cloud Drake's dragon pit wall color has been changed.
    • The personalized shop is mysteriously back on the PBE! It is now just called "Your shop". The top of the shop lists an end dates, which has changed over the course of this pbe cycle.
    • While not enabled for testing yet, A new "Center Camera Highlight" option has been added. It appears this will put a glow around your character whenever you use a hot key to center the camera on your champion. Here's a brief preview video of the effect in action, although the option to enable/disable it hasn't been added in-game on the PBE yet - soon!

    The following content has been testing on the PBE but will not be going to live in the patch.

    [LCU] May 18th Update - Profile.

    As the League Client Update continues to test on the PBE, the update profile page now working on the PBE LCU! Here's CapnBranFlakes with more information:
    "===UPDATE: 18 MAY 2016===
    Hi League client update PBE testers! 
    We shared some information yesterday about a preview of the Profile page -- it's now accessible on the PBE alpha client, and still just as barebones as mentioned in that link. Reminder! We'll roll out more fleshed-out Profile pages in the coming weeks, so until then, please continue to keep your testing focused on Summoner's Rift and ARAM. 
    Thanks again for joining us on the frontline!"
    Here's a few pictures of the updated profile page, which is still very much a WIP!
    While the back ground will change based on recently frequently played champions, using an ultimate skin icon will switch your background to an animated version of that skin - Examples: Spirit Guard UdyrDJ SonaPulsefire Ezreal.

    The PBE LCU is open to all PBE testers, see [this thread] for more information on how to get started with testing as well as known issues and updates! Sign ups for the LIVE (not PBE) LCU Alpha can be found here.
