Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a preview of Patch 10.23 changes:
"10.23 Patch Preview - PRESEASON! 
It's a big preseason, so much is changing that we don't have our typical champion buffs and nerfs.  
We'll be watching everything very closely after Preseason ships to be ready for hotfixing bugs, items, and champions that we need to."
He added that all the changes would be noted in a large set of patch notes:
"I will not be, monster patch notes will be coming next week."

2)  Kiwikid noted that Battlecast Zac's splash art was going to be tweaked, making it lighter to better reflect the in-game model.

3) Scruffy tweeted out a full Seraphine changelist for this cycle, aimed at pushing her more towards Mid:

"First patch is showing us that Seraphine has been skewed towards Support more than intended so we're adding  adjustments to 10.23 to shift her primary position to Mid. 

Support is quite good right now, so these shouldn't remove the position, just bring it to a reasonable state."
