Context & Notes

1) Here's the latest from the r/LeaguePBE feedback threads:

" 3/8/22
Update in response to player feedback:
 
After evaluating the feedback we've made a few changes to the VFX to increase the number and size of little bats in many of her abilities, to further push her Battle Bat feeling. 
Some suggestions either conflicted with other player feedback or with internal craft expertise, others (like changing the entire color palette) are out of scope for a PBE change. Thank you for taking the time to test Battle Bat Vayne!"
