An overview of what's new on PBE for Patch 5.6 so far!

My PBE client was finally fixed, so below, I cover every 5.6 PBE update so far! This includes the six new skins (April Fool’s and Debonair Galio), balance changes, and more!
 
SKINS
 
Where’s my invitation?

Nasus, Udyr, Nami, and Soraka are having a party….but they forgot to invite Amumu.

The Sad mummy is left out once again. This skin includes:

New model and texture!
New Recall animation!
New particles!
New Sound Effects!

This skin will be 1350rp.

Your feedback and bug reports are extremely helpful to us, so please check out Surprise Party Amumu and let us know what you think! Feel free to drop any bugs you find in this thread as well!

See you on the Rift!

Note: Audio isn’t in yet, I’ll update this post when it is!

Additionally, we encountered a bug with Amumu so he won’t be testable today. Poor Mummy. ;_;

CLIENT
The new Friend Discovery feature is currently on the PBE. It allows you to easily find friends, with an option to link your League of Legends and Facebook accounts. More info from MattEnth below.
 
Hey everyone,

We’re going to activate the previously announced Friend Discovery Hub on the PBE over the next couple of days. There’s a few things you should keep in mind though, so here we go:

We’re still in the middle of developing this feature. So… there are still a few incomplete pieces. Also, we want to make sure we point out the hub won’t be hitting live servers in the next patch (obviously, since it’s not done yet!) This is a pretty complicated feature on the server-side, and we’ll be testing out a few of our behind-the-scenes privacy safeguards in addition to just the normal Facebook authentication flow (reminder: it’s opt-in!)

If you do want to temporarily opt-in and hitch your Facebook account onto your PBE LoL account, we’d appreciate it! Having that said, we also think it’s pretty unlikely that you’ll see any friend recommendations just due to the small number of players with PBE access (although if you have Facebook friends who are also on the PBE, that’s awesome!)

We’ll have more details on how you can help us focus when testing friend recommendations in a future post. For now, let us know if you have any questions, feedback, comments, or bug reports!
