: Massive Ping?
Not just high ping anymore. Its also instability. Ping won't jump but times where it feels like ping just flutters and lags you.
: Riot definitely cares about player behaviour on PBE: they have a small section in the [Riot Support PBE FAQ](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201751904#h2q5), and Rioters have [commented](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-pbe-feedback/rAf4tIOV-so-much-toxic-and-leaver-because-they-think-they-are-in-pbe-so-they-can-do-anything?comment=0005) on it on [numerous](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-pbe-feedback/mwpGtPpd-i-was-just-banned?comment=0004) occasions. PBE is quicker than live when it comes to banning because it's a zero-tolerance environment. All reports work: even if your report doesn't ban the person in question, it undoubtedly contributes to an eventual punishment down the line because PBE doesn't really forget past reports. Unfortunately you only get a notification if the game in which you reported them was the final game needed to trigger a punishment. [Here](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/U0UgApxB-report) is an recent example of someone finding the report/punish system does work. [Here](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/k5zVEGix-hacked-account-and-banned) is an example of a recent ban. Either way, where the automated system falls off, you can always report players through Riot Support (log in with live account, specify PBE within ticket). This has been very effective for me so far. But because of privacy laws they will not be able to tell you whether they took action and what type of action it was. While I too would love Riot increasing the requirements, honour is likely inefficient for them. If you were to increase it to level 4 or 5, people wouldn't be able to make their PBE accounts until like... May, July?... because the honour level is tied to *time*. Increasements in levels are done in a set time and resets with every beginning of the season (~January). It's also... not fully representative of someone's actual behaviour. A lot of people don't take PBE seriously, and such treat it with a flair of carelessness and indifference. As a side-note, this would promote account selling/buying, so people that aren't honourable can still come on here.
Riot has large number of things that promote toxicity. Some of them just difference between professional play vs everyone else. Others are just lack of mental capacity. Example of both is at end of a pro game can see players sit around nexus without ending. This in itself isn't big deal and in pro play where money is on the line it is their job to win and small things that can effect player mentality into next games and give you an edge can be huge thing. Then you take same examples in everyday games. At very high elo you can get same players each game so you could maybe say same thing only not as much pressure and no money on line. Yet you will see it in low elo games where chances of you getting same people are so small almost never happen, no money on line, just plain completely and utter toxic. Of the second, on pbe you can get rp easily and have option to skin boost for your team. And low and behold a simple and nice thing turns toxic when players will wait until last seconds to boost changing their teammates skins and forcing them to play with skin they might not like or want to use. Not only is it retarded that it changes your skin sometimes, it can be used at last second so even if you're at the keyboard paying attention to lobby you still most likely won't have time to get your original skin back. tldr their "No tolerance" is bull. Good example of riot toxicity, for awhile they would reset servers on pbe nearly everyday and how they did it? Riot would give you 5 minute warning at menu. They don't disable matchmaking hour earlier or give real notice they just shut down servers. So your game you started minute before warning or before would just stop with 0 warning. PBE is for testing the game not their toxicity policies and programs.
