: [League client update] Testing loot, clubs and (soon) ranked! (Updated 9/7/2016)
**===UPDATE: 1 JULY 2016===** Hi League client update PBE testers! We've pushed out a new build to the PBE alpha client today that adds some more client settings, turns on the server-side storing of said settings, and adds advanced match details at the end-of-game screen. We were also hoping to patch in the champion overview pages under the collection section we mentioned recently, but we ran into an issue with them for today's build, so they're not included. We'll update this thread again once we push out another update. Thanks for testing out the above additions and reporting any bugs you find -- we'll see you on the frontline! :D
: Is it safe to assume that a client volume option will be added? Like i want the sounds on all the time but its just so loud.

**===UPDATE: 6 JUNE 2016===** Hi League client update PBE testers! We've just pushed an update build to the PBE alpha client, and many of the areas discussed in [this recent blog](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/client-update/article/ab6a77f2-6c5f-4981-97d4-a541f9c11de7) are now available for bug catching. Areas like champion details, match history, advanced match details, and some others will open up in a future PBE update, and for now you can check out your champion collection, runes, masteries in collection, spells, and more. Thanks for jumping in, testing it out ,and reporting any bugs you find -- we'll see you on the frontline! GLHF.

**===UPDATE: 3 JUNE 2016===** Hi League client update PBE testers! Wanted to stop by with an update on the status of the PBE alpha client update for this week. We ran into some issues with the PBE build (the one that contains the updates listed from the June 1st update), and have been working to resolve them. We're almost there, but it's looking more like we'll get the update out to PBE earlier next week -- while PBE is our pre-alpha testing server, and issues are to be expected, there are some that would make your experience feel as if you were stuck with a Smiteless Jungle Amumu on your team whose keyboard just broke (this was literally me the other week, and it sucked xD). Thanks for sticking with us, and we'll be back with another update as soon as we're cleared for launch. Have a great weekend!

**===UPDATE: 1 JUNE 2016===** Hi League client update PBE testers! We just shared some [information about the new Collection section and reworked Profiles](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/client-update/article/ab6a77f2-6c5f-4981-97d4-a541f9c11de7) -- they will be accessible on the PBE alpha client for bug catching after maintenance later, and then on the live alpha client in the coming weeks for focused feedback. Make sure to check out the blog for details on what you can expect. Thanks in advance for testing it out and reporting any bugs you find, and we'll see you on the frontline!

**===UPDATE: 18 MAY 2016===** Hi League client update PBE testers! We shared some [information yesterday about a preview of the Profile page](http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/client-update/article/ef48defa-2158-4a7e-b70f-c5df70561f62) -- it's now accessible on the PBE alpha client, and still just as barebones as mentioned in that link. Reminder! We'll roll out more fleshed-out Profile pages in the coming weeks, so until then, please continue to keep your testing focused on Summoner's Rift and ARAM. Thanks again for joining us on the frontline!

== UPDATE: 4 May 2016 == We've disabled the animation from ready check to champion select while we work on increasing the performance of it -- we hope to have it re-enabled later in the alpha. .#MayTheFourthBeWithYou

: [League client update] Briefly visiting the PBE for a pre-alpha tech test *Ended Mar 22*
**====UPDATE: 22 March 2016====** The temporary League client update PBE pre-alpha tech test has ended. On behalf of everyone on the League client update team, thank you again to all who jumped into the client to test it out and report bugs. As Riot Hark mentioned yesterday, we'll be back with more info about the upcoming alpha test within the next few months. Cheers!

: Does "New Tech" imply by any means the possibility of a Linux client within 2016? AFAIK the only problem so far from porting the OSX version was the use of Adobe's products. This should be removed by the new client.

**====UPDATE: 10 March 2016====** Hi all, We're going to be temporarily taking the League client update pre-alpha tech test offline tomorrow, Friday March 11, around 3PM PST/ 6PM EST for the weekend. We plan on bringing it back up early next week, and will update this thread again once it's back online. Thanks to everyone who's helped test so far, we really appreciate it and are getting a lot of great data. Also, we sent out some more invites yesterday, so feel free to check your email inboxes and a reminder of how you can help can be found [here](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/yX4A82BF-league-client-update-briefly-visiting-the-pbe-for-a-pre-alpha-tech-test-updated-mar-8). **REMINDER:** When posting in [this PBE board](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback) about the tech-test client, please put _[League client update]_ at the start of your thread title. We were just able to go through and add these to existing threads on the topic, but please put that at the start of your title :).

: I got this problem as well. 1. entered ARAM game champ select. 2. got champ. 3. waited for game to start. 4. as soon as it counts down to zero and makes a noise like its entering the game it doesn't actually enter the game, but it does show the enemy team you were matched against.

**====UPDATE: 8 March 2016====** Hi folks, We're going to start sending out the email invites we mentioned [in this post](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/yX4A82BF-league-client-update-briefly-visiting-the-pbe-for-a-pre-alpha-tech-test) a little later today. Please check out the context in that linked post before jumping into the tech test, as well as the list of known issues. Reminder that this is a tech test, and you're going to encounter other issues. If you do and they are not in the list below, please use the bug report button icon that's located at the bottom of your friend's list to let us know about it—if you need to share a screenshot of a bug, please leave it in [this PBE board](http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback) and put this tag at the start of your new thread’s title: [League client update]. **How you can help if you get an email:** * Download, install, and patch * Log in (you can log in after client patches and before gameplay patch is complete) * Use the PLAY button to queue up for ARAM * Invite your friends on PBE when in the ARAM lobby (non-tech test participants with PBE accounts can still join you) * Play ARAM games * Use your friend's list to chat with friends, add new friends, etc. * If you crash, please completely fill out all requested information in the bugsplat window **_IMPORTANT:_** While the client is being updated, the rules are not: scripts, hacks, or modifications are still never cool. We can accurately detect players logging in with a hacked client versus a legitimate one that's been approved for the tech test. This test doesn’t represent the full product, and maintaining a consistent, healthy testing environment is critical to testing efforts. > **Major known issues:** > >General > > * If you lose internet connection on the in-client alpha landing page, you'll receive a notification with an unclickable hyperlink to our support page > * On extremely rare occasions, you will notice assets missing everywhere on the client -- please restart to fix > * The settings window will briefly flash in the upper-left hand corner of your screen when you open it > * The client doesn't scale well with high dpi settings > * The client will close if you advance your computer's date/time > * If you attempt to repair an installation, the repair button animation gets stuck > * You are not notified if you disconnect from the Internet while patching > * You can't navigate away from the main landing page if you are disconnected from the internet and will see a white 404 error page > * When the client has been open for an extended period of time with no activity (9+ hours), all functionality is lost > * Disconnecting from the internet during an initial install may corrupt the install > * The uninstaller reports success even when unable to delete all files, which causes subsequent installs to fail until the League Client project is deleted > * You may experience a crash when self-updates finish and close > * [OSX Specific] The client disables screen sleep > * [OSX Specific] Pinning the client to the Dock, then launching from the pinned icon will cause a crash > * [OSX Specific] Progress bar not appearing when updating the game client > >Pre- and post-game > > * Occasionally, Lobby Tooltips don’t go away > * You don't receive a warning message if you decline 3 times on the ready check screen, but you may still incur a penalty if they dodge queue too many times > * Black screen may occur when transitioning into and out of ready check > * Invites and suggest panels load slowly > * Some players may experience performance issues with masteries and ARAM trades > * Skin selection carousel and chroma button don't appear disabled when champ select timer hits "0" > * Client window flashes briefly when your game is marked as victory/defeat before you click the button to leave the game > >Friend's list > > * 'Disable Notifications' currently doesn't function > * Game status' appears truncated in the friend's list > * Friend's list hovercards linger when you unfriend your last remaining friend /amumu > >More > > * *NOTE: You will encounter other issues, so please use the bug report button icon that's located at the bottom of the friend's list to let us know about it > >OSX > > * The upcoming initial PBE deploy for patch 6.6 _may_ have an issue that _potentially_ prevents players on OSX from being able to get into a game -- teams are actively working on this, so please watch [this link](http://status.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/#pbe) for updates. We'll remove this note if the issue is resolved.

: That makes sense, it forced them to come out with all this, or this all fiasco was a "leak " on purpose xD
It didn't force us to put this out :). We always had planned to post this message up today, and we knew there was a chance for it to be pre-maturely discovered over the weekend due to some tests we needed to run: > As we're getting closer to opening up sign-ups for the League client update alpha test (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/site/2016-season-update/client-update.html), we're conducting internal testing so we're prepped for players to participate in the alpha. This required use of a live, public environment, and we knew there was a chance of it being prematurely discovered. That's okay, and we'll be sharing much more context on the League client update and its alpha test as we get closer to the alpha's start, including some info on the PBE boards in the next week or so in regards to an upcoming tech test.
: You said in your post that only ARAM will be available in the alpha, will we still be able to log into the normal PBE client to play SR games? I'd imagine the alpha won't totally replace the live PBE client
> [{quoted}](name=Locutus of Borg,realm=PBE,application-id=AYQh7p7O,discussion-id=yX4A82BF,comment-id=000b00000000,timestamp=2016-03-08T00:07:49.740+0000) > > You said in your post that only ARAM will be available in the alpha, will we still be able to log into the normal PBE client to play SR games? I'd imagine the alpha won't totally replace the live PBE client The post mentions that the special tech test edition of the League client update only includes the ARAM queue -- we're not in alpha yet :). If you get into the tech test, you'll basically have 2 icons/ clients since we're not replacing anything yet: Legacy PBE client (the one you use now) and League client update PBE (the one for the tech test).
: Just curious. By client do you mean pre-game client, in game client or both? Will this fix the "spaghetti code" that has become ever so popular?
> [{quoted}](name=EpicFailtality,realm=PBE,application-id=AYQh7p7O,discussion-id=yX4A82BF,comment-id=001e,timestamp=2016-03-07T23:15:58.133+0000) > > Just curious. By client do you mean pre-game client, in game client or both? Will this fix the "spaghetti code" that has become ever so popular? The client refers to everything you experience outside of the map loading screen and gameplay on the map. Re: "spaghetti code" -- Yes, we're building the updated client in new tech: > **New Tech ** >We're abandoning the legacy client's tech framework and building the updated client from the ground up, so players will finally have the more reliable, responsive client they deserve. Bonus: teams at Riot will have an easier time developing and delivering new features.
: I haven't launched PBE since I got my new computer a few weeks ago. Will it automatically register my specs when I log in?
I believe specs are captured at the end of a game, so maybe jump onto PBE and play a game if you can?
: so if we get an invite do we get a new alpha account or we are login in with our PBE info?
You'll log in with your PBE account if invited to the PBE pre-alpha tech test. Once we start sign-ups for alpha down the road, those players accepted will use their live accounts to log into the alpha (as the alpha will be connected to the live severs, meaning you can still play and chat with your friends who are not in the alpha).
