Context & Notes

WIP

1) Here's Squad5 with tons of Ornn context on today's changes:
[1] Here's what I put in yesterday - Q pillar spawns 1s instead of 1.25s and has a small push on it when it spawns. W length and width inc by 50
[2] Took out the E's knockback on charge through, increased the R1 ram's max speed from 1050 to 1200.
[3] Oh and I also fixed that annoying bug where you couldn't move the camera clicking on the minimap while forging.
[4] W also sets your speed from 35% to 50%

2) Here's Meddler with his Quick Gameplay Thoughts for 8/29, covering Inspiration Keystones, Ornn, and Spectator Cleanup.

3) When asked for context on the Circlet of the Iron Solari (Ornn Masterwork Item) Squad5 noted it was a bug:
"Circlet is a bug. The new Zhonya's is to give AP another option. I underestimated how meaningful the items were to his teammates."

4) Here's RiotRepertoir with a note on a Gragas change seen this cycle:
"We've still got a few days left, so there could be some more stuff coming in, but likely not a TON. There's also frequently stuff that can go unnoticed on PBE but still be in the patch. For example, Gragas' E hitbox has been adjusted to be less ridiculous at its end, but it's not a change easily recognized otherwise."
