Continued Nexus Blitz Testing

 Riot August posted a Nexus Blitz change list for 8/7:
"HOTFIXED THE DARK HARVEST BUG 
Patch notes for 8/7 deploy 
We're reducing gold from objectives further to lower overall snowball. Taking an objective is already incredibly powerful due to the buffs and map control, so giving a boatload of gold on top of it isn't needed. 
Also nerfing a bug where FoN was giving stacking CDR

Objective Gold:
  • Turret Gold:: 100 local + 50 global >>> 25 last hit + 50 global
  • Blue and Red buff gold:: 240 local + 70 global >>> 200 local + 60 global
Towers:
  • Added 15% armor penetration to all towers
Items:
Force of Nature
  • Removed the 10% SECRET STACKABLE COOLDOWN REDUCTION that FoN was granting (oops)
Events: 
Treasure Teemo
  • Health reduced by 15%
Push the Cart
  • Can now spawn in bottom lane
  • Fixed numerous bugs that would cause the cart to move in odd ways
Sudden Death
  • Nexus Armor:: 270 >>> 250
  • Nexus MR:: 220 >>> 200
Bardle Royale
  • Circle burn no longer goes through shields and invulnerability effects
Runes:
  • Fixed Dark Harvest bug where killing jungle monsters would sometimes give 100+ souls."

Keep in mind the experimental mode Nexus Blitz is getting ready for a live alphatest with 8.16!

Miscellaneous 

  • As noted by Riot Stellari, the SSG Xayah and Rakan loading screens (both normal and signed) have been updated to fit better when they are together on the loading screen:
"Update on the SSG Xayah & Rakan load screen. Splash artists did a tweak to align them better when they load-in together. There's a version floating around we couldn't do because they're off center when loading alone, and other places in game. This will be live in patch 8.16"
