Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a preview of balance for the 10.9 PBE cycle:
"Patch Preview for 10.9:  
Trying something new here by showing where specifically we see the champs over-performing that we intend to nerf. Let me know if you like this and if we should keep doing it.  
Not showing details like this for buffs bc they are under-performing generally"

2) Riot Kami Banani noted the 4/21 PBE maintenance would be later than usual, after a planned NA/OCE/PBE downtime:
" **TOMORROW, 21 APRIL** 
Our 10.9 patch PBE update will take place AFTER the below maintenance. Sorry in advance for the extended downtime, friends!"
 Here's the Riot Support tweet on the planned downtime:
"[Update!] [LoL, TFT, TFT - NA/OCE/PBE] League, TFT, & TFT mobile will be offline for maintenance ONE HOUR EARLIER, 7:00-12:00 PT April 21 (NA) / 24:00-5:00 AEST April 22 (OCE)"
