Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a full changelist of balance changes this cycle:
"Patch 10.5 tentative changes: Close to final numbers, but a few things may change before it goes live."
Riot Captain Gameplay also provided further explanation on Turret plating changes:
this is actually not the most accurate representation. it would be better to say turrets take 20% more damage from melee champs 
turret plates gained damage resist vs anything that's not a melee champion, but turrets lost armor and mr so that damage is roughly equivalent 
More clarification 
Turret plates gained 18% damage resist vs anything that's not a melee champion 
Pre 14 minutes, outer turrets have 40 + 40 per lost plate Armor and MR >>> 15 + 35 per lost plate Armor and MR 
Post 14 minutes, they have 40 armor and mr like before 
Which literally means VS Live, melee are dealing ~ 120% increased damage, and ranged are dealing ~2% reduced damage"
2) Here's Riot KiWiKiD with updates on skins this cycle:
"Hey everyone, we had our meeting last friday about Blackfrost and we decided to go forward with these actions: 
- Giving Q VFX swipes that everyone was asking for on her Q! They are in now so enjoy! 
No plans at this time 
No plans at this time 
About darkening the overall skintone color: we feel like the current slight change in color is awesome and there are also comments here saying to keep it! We looked at Blackfrost Anivia model is really feel like its oudated. HOWEVER, we have appropriated some chromas to those who miss the darker blacks:
Thanks <3"
