[Updated] Mac Testers: Delayed Patch ( Jan 30 )

Here's RiotAether with a note on some issues that have delayed the Mac version of today's update:
"::edit:: Release dudes tested the Mac client while QAing before we popped the PBE back online. Though the Mac build has a few outdated files, you all should be able to get into matches properly (a few oddities notwithstanding).

Go play with Ashe!
Hey testers, as you can tell from the delays, we ran into some issues with getting today's PBE deploy ready to go. One of the problems has stopped us from rolling out Mac update with the Windows one. Rough sequence of events: 
  • In progress: Take the PBE down to deploy today's update, including the Windows update
  • Turn the lights back on; Windows testers will download the update and be able to start testing
  • Everyone will be able to log back into the PBE but Mac testers won't be able to get into matches due to version differences between their client and the game servers
  • Get the Mac update ready to go (somewhere between 1-2 hours after we come back up). Mac players will download the update upon relog and be able to test normally again.
Thanks guys, and sorry for how long today's release is taking :/"

Balance Changes

* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out!  These are not official notes.

If you are concerned about changes being reverted, see this post by Meddler:
"Changes on the PBE are there to be tested. Often, they'll test well and we'll put them in the next patch. In some cases though, such as those you're talking about, we won't be happy with things and will pull them out again, either because our goals have changed, we haven't got enough testing on them yet or we want to try a different approach. "

"... we're in this brief period in which we want to wrap up stuff for 4.2..."

  • Golden Aegis ( W ) indicator range changed to 525 from 600.**
  • [ **Context: This is just change to his W's indicator. The indicator ring went down but the particle is unchanged, making the indicator ring more accurately reflects how big the particle is. ]

  • Attack range lowered to 450 from 475
