: Blind pick is simply the best testing environment. Even having multiple queues open would significantly slow stuff down. Sure, it might work the first few days when PBE is busy, but after that it would be 20+ minute queues. This isn't to say that Draft Pick won't be enabled in favor over Blind Pick sometime during preseason testing. This preseason was added several weeks in advance for extra testing. But right now with both Evelynn and runes that need to be tested, it is better to have all options available without bans.
i think draft pick should have been a thing over blind pick just disable the bans if you can and there you go, not many people can play the champions and ruins they want to test if someone is constantly auto locking lanes every single game. for example i wanted to test the new eve everyone auto locked in champs they where comfortable with and left me with a lane and champ i didn't want to play because i came to test the new stuff. it's really not fair and i'm sick of people doing it, blind pick is not an excuse for you to insta lock comfort picks and be an ass when someone else wanted that lane or position to try the new champs and builds and ruins and all that. but it happens every fucking time EVERY...FUCKING.... TIME!!
: Long time que.
it's not riot, its the fact that no one is playing on the pbe probably. honestly if people where not going to use it, they shouldn't have opted in for the beta testing.

: Blind pick being a better testing ground than ranked or draft? Sure. Those two have the same problems you just described and people can try to steal your roles or ban against you. If your ping is too high and your computer cannot handle that, then go play custom games. For your matchmaking problems: play premade.
the ping being to high is a major problem, however as i said why is it 150 on the test servers and 80 on live? and while draft does let you pick your roles before getting into the lobby, it still has a higher chance of getting the role "you want" compared to having someone say "either play this role, or don't play at all." draft would be a much better testing environment giving people the chance to at least get their role instead of getting into a lobby and wanting and being stuck with people who auto lock within 1 second of getting in there. i'm sorry i should not have to fight with people who auto lock like assholes instead of saying "where does everyone want to go"
: These Queue Times
it's because the people who signed up for the pbe don't play it anymore unless they know something new is coming out, basically turning the testing enviroment into a forgotten wasteland. but even then the people who do show up to test don't do their job half the time, because the champs that get pushed with a all clear and get called broken early on the live servers people just say. " this is ok " after playing it a few times then never playing it again.
: > We actually do de-activate some content as it gets older and more feedback on it gets deprioritized. This helps to de-clutter the store and keeps the visible priority on the content that needs feedback the most. [Riot LoveStrut](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/general-pbe-feedback/ld7Eik6x-dark-star-thresh-is-unavailable-to-buy-from-the-store?comment=0001) It only happens to older skins (= skins that are already released on the live servers) that no longer need testing on our part.
that doesn't make a lot of sense, you can get all the other skins (project ashe was one i couldn't purchase even though i could with almost all the others ) so it seems a little odd.
: Low Priority Broken?
i had the same issue when i tried playing urf on the pbe, idk what is going on it's just sad to think that you cannot play games on the pbe because you get caught by leaver buster. you want to try the new skins and such, but you can't because you are stuck in 20+ cues that go no where and last up to 50 minutes because riot can't be bothered to not enable leaver buster on the pbe.
: Leavebuster isnt in the new client, if you have a ban you must play using the old client. With all said... ban=no urf for you
i was using the new client because i updated, and yes leaverbuster is on the new client. because it's on the new client on live servers as well.
: Because "whatever is featured" needs testing and blind pick is a way better testing ground compared to ranked/draft, where new content just gets banned anyway. Ranked will be re-enabled when Riot makes changes to it and needs testing for it instead.
whatever is featured needs testing yes, but blind pick being a better testing ground? AHAHAHAHAHAHA fucking no, say i want to test one of the new mid laners with blind pick i might never get that chance because this is what a standard blind pick looks like. get into lobby champ select loads in split second after champs select loads. "TOP " " MID" "JUNGLE" "well i would have liked to go mid." " to fucking bad i auto picked it you go bot or support." <---- that's a blind pick lobby for every lobby i have been in, then i'm stuck in a role i didn't want and if you are on low cue like me because my pbe likes to have my ping set at 150 on the testing server while the live server my ping is normally around 80. and with my ping shooting around 150 it makes the game much harder to play forcing me to leave because no one can understand the words. "my ping is making the game unplayable please give me some breathing room." and in blind pick mode it's even worse because again, you get thrown into a role you may not like or don't play and then when your ping goes up you literally have to leave the game. then either leaver buster activates forcing me to play in low cue games or people report me after i say multiple times i'm sorry but i can't play like this my ping is so and so high i need to back out." so you know
: is it lag or ping? lag is a drop in FPS. If you have an FPS problem, try to play the game in windowed screen. It works for my friend. Windows automatically gives privilige to the tab that is at the top. For example: if you Alt+Shift and open Skype, and don't make the tab small, the PC could give privilige to the skype and try to run skype at max FPS, therefore minimizing all other programs with league. Hope it helps! {{champion:34}}
it was lag, but i was able to finish 2 full screen malphite top games today back to back with little issue. i say little because a few team mates where still complaining about lag but it wasn't to bad. thanks riot for looking into this
: Our most recent deploy should have fixed this, we'll be watching to see if it's as "fixed" as we hope!
thank you, i hope you will keep me posted i'll be taking a look a little later today hopefully.

: Gangplank Feedback Thread
i gotta say i played the new gangplank, and he feels very balanced to me. i didn't run into any real bugs, but i do have a question about his kegs. why do they give gold to your opponent if they are destroyed by them? its almost as if they are minions.
: maybe an enemy had summoner {{summoner:2}} ?
now that i think about it, i think someone did. but i didn't know that it would create, a icon like that on the main map.

: Ascension Bug Report Thread
the game freezes randomly for me when there is 3 champions fighting, or if someone is spamming their abilities like the enemy Xerath in my first game on ascension. every time i would get near him, my game would freeze and i would have to exit out. I do like the game mode, and for what it is it's pretty fun. (I honestly wish this one would stay. ) But i'm hoping that these issues, get fixed at some point cheers mates.
: {SUGGESTION} Blood Moon Kennen
the mask is the only draw back, but other then that i could get behind this looks awesome.
: Complete game crash
happened to me as well, it was me and yasuo up in the top lane. (And i was just playing a quick bot match) and right about the 20 minute mark, give or take a few minutes before the whole game froze on me. i couldn't click anything , it didn't unfreeze and i had to exit out via task manager. I didn't run across this issue at all yesterday, so I am not sure whats going on.
: It seems to happen on SR, but less frequent. Happened again, I can confirm it's happening in teamfights (2v2 or higher)
> It seems to happen on SR, but less frequent. > > Happened again, I can confirm it's happening in teamfights (2v2 or higher) just happened on SR for me, the whole game froze and i had to open the task manager to close it down. i think i'll wait for a while to see if these things get fixed up.
: Cassiopeia skins 1 ip?
they probably will be here in a short bit, they have done it with every champion that has gotten a rework so far. give them a little time.
: So i believe this is an issue with the interactions between graphics. The major freeze which was mind boggling happened when i changed my video settings from High to low. First i had the brief video change freeze, then after all the particles were changed, it completely froze for about 5 mins before i exited. 2 freezes occurred when fighting the Ascended Xerath, J4, Gragas, Azir, and someone else. 1 freeze occurred fighting with Gragas, Xin, J4, Azir, Kass, and another i believe. So yes, the major issue here is just changing video settings crashes this, as the video is unresponsive, i believe it has something to do with how the graphics are handled by the GPU and there seems to be an issue there. <-- This part my be BS. But yeah disable this Mode, its unplayable.

: Ascension: Full-system freeze (multiple times)
same thing has happened to me, it happened 4 different times on ascension. Each time it happened, was during a team fight with 3 or 4 champions in a fight at a time. I honestly had to use, CTRl+ULT+DEL just to get out of the game. the last time it happened, was right before the end of the match. so I don't know whats up hope it gets fixed soon, this game mode actually seems like a lot of fun Cheers mates!
