Oh good, maybe I'll be able to play Lux again soon.

How does this change affect the following two things:
Damage from Nidalee Spears is calculated based of distance will this change inadvertently lower it?
How does this change affect non champion targets( minions and jungle mobs)?

Mai GAWD THANK YOU! Back in the day i used to main Cassiopeia but there would always be the times where when u get jumped on and i would ult and they would just walk right through like nothing happened. The hit detection was kinda wonky at times and i hope this fixes it. :P

Some additional context on this: We found out that previously the math was flawed in that a champion's model size was taken into consideration only if the missile was hitting from the side, but not from the front. This means that previously if you shoot a skillshot right at an enemy, it would only hit when it hit the center of the target; but if you aim it at target's side it would hit if it touches the target's bounding circle. This was pretty inconsistent.

We changed it so that it will always use the target's bounding circle, but this means the potential reach of a skillshot is extended, and we have to slightly reduce the range of skillshots.

Thank god for this clarification

It is all calculated on a per-character basis. Skins do not impact this value. All skins will behave the same in respect to being hit by skillshots.

Does this mean that champions are using a simple "Box" Around them, or are they using Model based hitboxes...

This occurs consistently on skills that are particle skillshots or have secondary particles attached to a model (Anivia's Ice ball, Nidalee's spear) And on any brush or area that a team has no vision on.
This is such an easily reproducible bug...

I feel like skillshots going through champions (quite frequently) shouldn't be a "we'll eventually get around to it" type thing, just me though.
