Context & Notes

1) Here's Riot Phlox on upcoming changes to Sanguine Blade:
"Hey all!  
We're replacing Sanguine Blade with Hullbreaker, a broader item that'll be tempting for AD splitpushers. It's going to ship 11.13 and you should see it on PBE tomorrow.  
As always we're glad to hear any feedback on the item!  
Shoutout to @SrRafles with the great VFX!

Also here's a QGT from a few months ago about Splitpushing from @MarkYetter that could be interesting to read for ya. 

 

2) Riot KateyKhaos noted some fixes for Arcana Tahm Kench's VFX:

3) Each of the feedback threads for the skins and chromas this cycle are now up on r/LeaguePBE!
Make sure to leave any constructive feedback in their respective threads:

4) 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)
