Co-op vs. AI
Twisted Treeline bots should now favor defending their base over taking altars.
Twisted Treeline bots no longer get stuck at the summoning platform when an inhibitor is under attack.
Custom game Summoner's Rift bots now use the same push logic as beginner Co-op vs. AI bots, which should address several issues of bots getting stuck on the map
Added a pathing workaround to prevent Summoner's Rift bots from getting trapped in certain areas of the map (e.g. Baron pit)
Battle Training bots should no longer get stuck during the tutorial

Twisted Treeline
Reduced Vilemaw's starting damage, increased his starting health, and reduced his health scaling
Slightly tweaked walkable space in several areas to allow Flashing over walls

Removed Thornmail from the purchasable item list

Crystal Scar
Reduced passive mana regeneration
Increased mana gained from Health Relics
Changed windmill rotation speed so gears no longer clip

Things I'm not happy with:

Altar now spawns at 3min? wtf? The whole point of it spawning at 2 meant there were level 1 skirmishes. Now the game will be more passive.

Brush removed from near Altars? Why? It allowed people to run around in circles around the altar to stop the enemy from capping it.

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

what meager "end season 2" patch is that anyway?

"End Season 2" = beginning pre season = testing of major S3 changes


If they're going to release something like jungle change/ item rehaul somehwere mid-end preseason... duh

And if this simply means that preseason is like 6 months long.... duh
