Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a balance update:
[1]"After looking at 9.22 data, we don't have any significant champion outliers that we want to do balance work on before 9.23 (including Senna).  
With 9.23 being a huge preseason patch, we plan to hotfix anything crazy and do a large amount of followup in 9.24."
2) Squad5 noted Diana would have PBE work in 9.23:
[1] "Diana work is going to be on PBE in 9.23.
Here's the gist of what you're going to see- 
 Updated VFX, SFX and ability icons. (No new VO or Model changes.)  
Adjustments passive and overall tuning changes.
SWAP E and R. R beefed up to be an ultimate level ability."

[2] "I'll put up a post going into more detail on exactly what we are doing and some of the thought processes behind what we're doing when she's on PBE."
