Hello PBE friends! QA analyst Chupaacabra here.
Are you sick of having to re-invite your party members on the end of game screen or when you change game modes?
Do you want us to remember your position preferences so you don’t have to keep selecting them when you’re spamming draft games?
Hopefully the answer is yes to both because we are fixin’ this stuff.
Now on PBE:
**CHANGE YOUR PARTY’S GAME MODE, NO PROB!**
The party captain can change game modes for the party without having to re-invite them. If you’re a party member, you hear a little sound, and BOOP you’re in the new mode. No need to accept another invite.
**READY UP WHEN YOU WANT TO ON THE EOG SCREEN!**
Party members can now click “Play Again” on the EOG screen to return to the lobby—until you click it, everyone in your lobby will see that you are “not ready”. Click “Play Again”, when you’re “ready” to play. After all party members are ready, the party captain can enter matchmaking.
**REMEMBERED POSITION PREFERENCES!**
Your position preferences will be remembered through gameflow. So if you’re playing multiple Ranked games (or draft games, anything with position select) we’ll remember your positions from game to game when you click “Play Again”. You’ll have to pick them again if you change game modes or relog.
NOTE: This gameflow will occur in Normal Draft, Ranked Flex, Solo/duo, and SR Blind on PBE. If you’re in a different game mode, like ARAM, you’ll simply use the old gameflow of having to re-invite people. We’re working on getting this flow into all queues.
**We need your help! **
We’re looking for any bugs you may run into while testing on PBE. Post your bug in this thread with any repro steps you have. Screenshots, video or logs are also always appreciated to help us track down the problem!
