Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy provided a tentative balance changelist for 11.7:
"11.7 Preview with tentative changes:  
A few things may still change but most of the directions are here. Yorick was overdue for some of this work for sure."

Captain Gameplay noted the Yorick changes wouldn't make this patch:
"Yorick tower aggro logic is unlikely to be in for this patch"
2) Here's the latest from the feedback threads for the Space Groove skins:

Space Groove Samira
Heys, thanks all for waiting! We are in the process of making the following changes to Space Groove Samira based on your feedback.
  • Added sparkles to the Q melee
  • Updated the ult VFX to make them brighter and more fun!
  • Subtle adjustments to the W & E to improve the visual hierarchy
  • Increased recall SFX volume
  • Updated Samira's icon eye colour to green
  • Did a full pass on champion likeness in the splash, including updating her eye colour to green Please see RiotTinyBuns status here for the before and after: https://twitter.com/RiotTinyBun/status/1372297815024566272
  • We will not be updating her ult SFX volume. The music-to-bullet noise ratio varies based on how many people are in range of her ult, as intended. The sound team took care of ensuring the right balance of gameplay read vs music volume, we feel any changes here will negatively affect that balance.
Thanks All! See you on the rift!"
