[PBE Feedback] "New Missile System" - Rewriting Skillshots

Here's Riot Meyea with info on a few changes to skillshots testing on the PBE:
"Hello Summoners! 
We've re-written how skillshots work. 
My team at Riot is called CUTS. We Clean Up The Stuff (There's a synonym for "poop" in the real name). The "stuff" my team is cleaning up are skillshots. Like, all of them.
This video(Thanks for the shout out Gosu) is an example of a bug that actually exists on live right now. And frankly... fixing bugs like this involves a lot of change. If you fix some bugs, other bugs come up. Even worse bugs. Unless we re-write it. Which we've done. Huzzah! 
Re-writing how skillshots work is a huge change and the last time we put our changes on the PBE you guys were quick to find gameplay-impacting bugs. 
SHOUTOUTS TO THESE GUYS FOR POSTING. I <3 THE PBE COMMUNITY.
Oblivioncrusader, Frick You Austin, PO Little Mac, Micro98s 
(I probably missed some threads. If you made a thread about skillshots 2 weeks ago post it in the comments and I'll add it to the shoutout list x.^) 
This weekend I'm making a post because if there are no gameplay impacting bugs then we're ready to put our changes onto the live servers. 
Please feel free to leave any issues you find in the comments below!
