Champion Changes And Adjustments

Rengar is getting a big change at some point in the future, thanks to RiotPhlo. These changes were added to the PBE in mid-August, but the release date isn't finalised. According to @RiotPhlox "Rengar’s getting some deep rescripting/cleanup right now which should squash a lot of bugs, but it’ll take a fair bit of time to finish up. I’m sinking any spare time I’ve got from preseason into Rengar and I'll let y'all know when we've locked down his patch date."

QOL Changes

Starting this patch, /all chat will be disabled in matchmade queues in a few regions. Since our original announcement, response has varied between regions, so we're shifting our approach and only disabling /all chat where players were most receptive to trying it out. This test will last for two patches.
