I thought that I might start a thread for 1 purpose.. Log the randomness of each team's minion balancing.

I played a 1 man custom game (just me, no other heroes, no bots) and just sat around not engaging in any of the lanes to see what would happen. My results are below. I'd recommend other people try this and post what they find.

This game I was on the blue team (as Lux, not engaging the lanes) and my minions lost. Our bottom tower was the first to go, our mid tower was the second to go. Overall we had more of our towers down than purple at any given time. Blue in the top lane was doing better than in the bottom lane by far. The mid lane was being dominated by purple. In the end Blue had pushed top destroying their inhibitor and purple had pushed mid destroying the blue nexus.

Results are below. I encourage other people try this and see what they find.

PCM once again proves his superiority, even after the nerfs.

Purple caster minions scale down based on how many champions there are on the field. If there is only one champion (ESPECIALLY if that champion is on the blue team) the PCM is empowered to feel more bad-a therefore owning all other things. More champs = nerfed PCM because they have accepted that champions always steal their thunder.
