Context & Notes

1) Scruffy has posted a changelist for patch 10.17, aimed at Wednesday.

[1] "Better late than never, 10.17 Patch Preview. A bit smaller than a normal patch with the Riot summer break last week. 
 These changes should be going out some time Wednesday."
[2] "When we overshoot a buff in a patch we always first think about reverting partially (like cait and hecarim this patch) 
When we sometimes go with a different nerf it’s because we think the buffs are worth keeping and we want to shift a champions gameplay in that direction"
