Context & Notes

1) Riot will be going on a summer break starting August 10th! Here's Riot Kami Banani with details on how this will affect the PBE:
Hi friends! I'll be your RM for 10.18.  
As noted below, we're taking a week off! This means:
a) no PBE maintenance during vacation week
b) 10.18 will be on PBE for an extra week
c) there is no 10.17 as far as PBE is concerned  
Hope y'all enjoy the patch!"
They added:
"So for clarity: any changes in "10.17" (which is not a patch but more like a mid-patch balance update for 10.16) will be reflected in 10.18, it's just not its own update for PBE due to the way we update patches that are live vs. patches still in development."
