Context & Notes

1) Riot Orphyre provided bug & feedback threads for chromas this cycle:
2) Riot KamiBanani posted a thread over on the LeaguePBE subreddit noting level restrictions for Summoner's Rift on the PBE have been temporarily removed:
Hi friends! 
As some of you may have noticed, new PBE accounts aren't being automatically leveled to 30 after the tutorial. While we investigate the cause of this issue, we have temporarily removed level restrictions from queues. Players should now be able to access Summoner's Rift regardless of summoner level. 
That said, there are some caveats:
  • ARAM and Practice Tool are currently disabled (not level related)
  • Summoner Spells are still restricted to level 9 and higher 
Thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding! 😊" 


3) Riot August provided context and a changelist for more mana compensation changes in today's update:

"Pre-season mana compensation has been changed for AD champs to better match the ones who buy Sheen items on live. Should be on PBE today (10/1)  
We added Gangplank, Ezreal, Corki, Skarner, Volibear, and Wukong to the list while removing Kayn, Warwick, Illaoi, and Olaf"

4) Over on the Katarina Mains subreddit, GreaterBelugaWhale commented that they'll be a few additional to her current PBE changes:

"Will be using R as a tuning lever for burst vs on hit. Goal is both are reasonable. Right now i'm finding the on-hit build to be quite a bit worse than just going tons of AP (Axamuk+Nashor+Lich+Deathcap/Rylai/Zhonyas/Void), so i'm upping the on hit on R to 50% and the ASPD from (1 + .66x ASPD >>> 1 + .75x ASPD). but tuning is dubious in the chaos that is SRI so we'll see.

but prior to the changes she was actually basically a bruiser - Axamuk + Shadowbane + Rylai + Zhonyas. 4 Mixed Offensive+Def items. Still probably viable as well."
