  • Wild Growth (R) bonus health lowered to 200/350/500 from 300/450/600
    • [Context:  Tweets from SmashGizmo on these Lulu changes - 1/2.]

We plan on bringing it back up early next week, and will update this thread again once it's back online. Thanks to everyone who's helped test so far, we really appreciate it and are getting a lot of great data. Also, we sent out some more invites yesterday, so feel free to check your email inboxes and a reminder of how you can help below. 
REMINDER: When posting in this PBE board about the tech-test client, please put [League client update] at the start of your thread title. We were just able to go through and add these to existing threads on the topic, but please put that at the start of your title :)."
