Context & Notes

WIP

1) Make sure to take a look at Meddler's quick gameplay thoughts for August 22, covering upcoming runes reveals, MalphiteRyze, & more. Check out the 8/18 quick gameplay thoughts as well, it also mentions several 7.18 changes being looked at.

2) Riot Axes on Aatrox Q change in today's PBE:
"S@20 missed a line on Aatrox - he's also unstoppable during Q once he starts his dive. Can still be interrupted on his way up. 
(This is a fairly aggressive changelist as stands, there's a decent chance we don't ship both lines or at least not both lines at full tuning)"
3) Riot Time Wizard mentioned on Twitter the Eternum Cassiopeia splash will be updated in an upcoming PBE update:
"On PBE Soon: Eternum Cassiopeia Splash Update | Polished the face and made it more faithful to the in-game model!"
Old Splash
