Important info: "We expect to be running [Hextech Crafting Test] in Turkey for a minimum of 4 weeks before we enable this in other regions. This is to ensure the system works as intended and is stable." [Source]
NOTE: Riot added files for every champion, for every language, with extension .wad.client . Combined with recent file format change, it might suggest that new client alpha is around the corner. Nothing confirmed tho. Example of file: DATA/FINAL/Champions/Ahri.en_US.wad.client
We launched Dominion more than four years ago as an alternative game mode designed to challenge players with fast-paced skirmishes, capture-and-hold gameplay, and different skills to master. Back then, we truly believed the mode would introduce new players to League of Legends and provide current players with an experience as captivating as Summoner’s Rift. As League continues to evolve, our vision for the core game becomes more and more refined, and, after years of learning, it’s clear today that alternative game modes work better in short cycles rather than as standalone queues.

Heads up: This is a fat patch! If you're wondering why, we've made improvements to how we store art in the client (though you shouldn't notice a visual difference). Incidentally, that means we need to re-patch it all. So, if your patcher gets stuck on "applying patches", it's sorting through all the updated images. It'll take a while, so just let it do its thing!
Welcome to patch 6.3, the one where we finally make changes to Dragon and give assassins a shiny new toy. Shout-outs to Pwyff for covering in my absence - now let's dive in and get educational.

Yeah, this season's been a bit rough on Sivir. We're going to be testing some changes to her shortly and are planning on helping out subsequent W bounces. Current thinking is towards allowing W bounces to crit, since that goes well with the AD itemization that's otherwise appealing to Sivir. On hit effects would certainly be cool, but adds a lot of power in some cases and would require Sivir be balanced around the most optimal cases.
As far as Sivir's strategic niche goes the ult's always been a big part of that. Strong wave clear and reasonable team fight AOE are also intended strengths though, so this change supports that well. She's meant to be weak as a duelest too, so W bounce buffs as you've identified are potentially a really good fit.
