Taric is temporarily disabled while we fix some extra bugs, but will be available by the time OFA goes live. He's pretty fresh so.. comin' in HOT! :3 
As always, thanks for helping us test these iterations. We know some of you are connect to PBE from far across the sea, making for a terrible ping and there's often bugs that give games unsatisfying endings. :/ You guys are always super helpful though for us to deliver the best possible experience to everyone once it goes live. We couldn't do it without you. <3
