Context & Notes

1) Riot Kami Banani noted there would be a seconds maintenance later this afternoon:
"Hi friends who use PBE! We'll have additional maintenance a little later on this afternoon (LA time). Just an FYI."
2) Riot Mort noted more experimental TFT changes coming later this cycle:
"Stream schedule this weekend is 8am PST Sat and Sunday. 
Going to play PBE games because we're trying some VERY experimental changes based on the feedback of Galaxies so far, hitting a bunch of core mechanics. If you're interested, tune in...or even better go play PBE tomorrow!"
