I’m Riot Novalas & I’m a QA Analyst on Riot’s Playtest Team, a group of high elo players who work on Core Gameplay playing new champions, reworks, balance tweaks, items, and map updates before they’re released. It’s our job to test the changes that our designers come up with and ensure that we’re introducing positive changes to League in terms of both balance and fun.
Normally, we conduct a Patch Chat when a Patch hits live but we're taking a different route with the next few Patch cycles. We'd like you, the players, to ask us questions about changes that are currently being tested on PBE. Take a look at the content that's coming out and let's work together to make sure that Patch 8.8 launches as smoothly as possible! If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post on this thread. If you see content that you may worried about, feel free to request us to test it. (Or we'll let you know that it's been tested already.) This PBE Chat will last a full week so feel free to continue commenting even after today.
Here's a link to the content currently on PBE:
