Context & Notes

1) Here's Riot Jag with a changelist for Mobility changes now testing on the PBE:
[1] The 11.13 Mobility changes we've been talking about should hit PBE tomorrow, and so we wanted to share out the changelist. 
We took each item's win rates into account when making this evaluation, and so some of these are buffs, some are nerfs, and some are power neutral. (1/2) 
[2] Either way we plan on following up with any champions that are heavily disrupted by the changes. 
If you have any feedback, feel free to hit me or @TheTruexy, who's working on these changes. (2/2)
