A new model and texture for both her and Tibbers!

There was a new splash art that showed up in the files in today’s update. Though it’s not Nidalee’s, we can speculate that there’s a new Sivir and Nautilus skin on its way. Nurse Flan verified that the splash art was indeed not Warring Kingdom Nidalee and that it’s unfinished.
“FYI, the splashart under “Nidalee_Splash_7″ is NOT finished and is NOT Warring Kingdom Nidalee’s splashart. :) Please hang tight as that is WIP :)”

A new feature is headed to the PBE which will suggest other players to you and much more. Below is MattEnth on what you can expect.
In an upcoming patch, we’re introducing a new series of features that’ll help you find and add your IRL friends in League. We’re designing a hub for these features that’ll grow over time. The first of these helps you add fellow League players from your Facebook friends list. Many of you are on Facebook, and already use it to find friends in gaming networks. To us, it makes sense to start there.
When the new hub goes up, you’ll have the option of finding friends in League through Facebook. To clarify, you must choose to activate and use this feature. If you do, you’ll start seeing friend suggestions near the bottom of your League friends list. From there, you can add your friend or dismiss the recommendation.
You’ll only see suggested friends under all of these conditions:
Both you and the suggested friend have activated and approved the Facebook connection
You aren’t yet friends in League
You are friends on Facebook
Neither you nor the suggested friend have ignored the recommendation
When you add a suggested Facebook friend to your LoL friends list, you’ll still see them by their summoner name. In this implementation, their Facebook name will be prepopulated in their friends list note so you remember who’s who. You can still change the note afterward if you like.
We recognize that this isn’t a feature for every player. A key design tenet for the feature is that nothing changes for players who choose not to use it. We want this feature to be easy to ignore, while still valuable for those who want to beef up their friends list. We also want to make it easy to opt out of the feature at any time and for any reason.
Another key design tenet is privacy. We’ve taken extra steps to ensure that your Facebook info will never be shared with players if you haven’t explicitly activated the feature. If you do authorize and activate the feature, only your Facebook friends will ever see you as a suggested friend. Your Facebook info won’t be shared with strangers, won’t interact with your Facebook feed and will never post to your Facebook Timeline for you.
This feature is going to be on the PBE for a while so that we can gather feedback and iterate. We’re not quite finished yet, but we wanted to make sure to get the word out early. I’ll be around in the thread with Limely, a designer on the feature, to answer any questions!
