Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a Preseason changes update:
[1] "Preseason PBE Update 11/6: This is our final set of mechanics changes so we can focus on tuning and bug fixes."

He also noted:
[2] "We're expecting to do very few or no champion balance changes in 9.23. With the preseason shaking up the systems this much, champ tuning beforehand has inconsistent results. If we decide to do anything, I'll update next week."
