: I thought maint was in the middle of the day
One of the main purposes of the PBE is so that Riot can perform maintenance at their testing's convenience, as opposed to strict schedules to not disturb players.
: PBE Maintenance Match Start
The entire point of the PBE servers is so that Riot can do these things at their convenience to make the Live servers all the better and more stable. I can understand it might be frustrating, but most of the maintenances are around the same time, so you can at least get prepared for it there.
: Bug Update when i playing TFT
This is not a bug. The PBE goes down for routine maintenance almost every weekday. Riot takes this time to push changes and fixes onto the PBE servers and make sure things are stable. Right now is a little late in the day because they wanted to get some last minute changes in. > [{quoted}](name=Riot Porosite,realm=PBE,application-id=A4D2003433C8FCD715185A7264A9CC6FDFAD7FEF,discussion-id=0HksqIrB,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2019-09-20T04:55:35.906+0000) > > Doing some late maintenance. Apologies!!!! Couldn't wait for tomorrow's normal window.
: Rioter says PBE is open, but still won't let me log on.
There is maintenance almost every weekday for roughly an hour or so. Its not a bug that its down right now.
: Urf
Sometime during the year, that is all the information we have.
: Add a shield embargo to urf
People with a lot of shielding already have a debuff reducing the effectiveness of their shields by 50% for the entire game.
: Made a PBE account yday only for URF to be taken down ):
Probably not before it is on Live servers first and it comes back afterwards for the next testing period, whenever that may be.
: According to announcement in unofficial pbe discord, ARURF was disabled due to a bug behind the scenes.
To update on this, > Since we have reached the end of the testing cycle for Patch 9.18, ARURF has been disabled. It will NOT be going to Live servers on Patch 9.18, yet this does NOT mean it will be returning to the PBE for further testing.
: Since we are in testing server why don't we just get 9999999 free rp xD ?
This used to be the case, but there were a multitude of issues that came up because of it. RP granting systems in the past have been very precarious and unstable due to how a lot of the old systems for the League servers were built. A lot of them ended up breaking beyond repair. The second big reason is that the store would commonly overload when a new champion or a hyped new skin was released; it also came a barrage of questions and bug reports saying the store was down. By limiting how much RP get, it has kept things far more stable.
: IS URF GONE?
It was probably temporarily disabled due to a bug or something occurring behind the scenes. Be patient and we will either get an official answer or it will be re-enabled soon. EDIT: > Since we have reached the end of the testing cycle for Patch 9.18, ARURF has been disabled. It will NOT be going to Live servers on Patch 9.18, yet this does not mean it will be returning to the PBE for further testing in the near future.

They say in there that Nexus Blitz probably WILL come back in the future, but it doesn't make the cut for being a permanent gamemode like ARAM or TFT.
: Make Ivern's Daisy less retarded (ARURF& elsewhere)
Since Ivern doesn't currently have any changes on the PBE, your post would be better suited on the Live Boards or [Reddit.](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/) The PBE is for content currently in testing and any Rioters browsing here aren't paying attention to anything about Ivern or other non-testing content.

: Riot's support site includes a section for [Public Beta Environment FAQ](https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201751904#h3q3) that provides a partial explanation as to why the client is in English. Under the section titled "Being A Tester": > **Do I have to leave feedback in English?** > > Feel free to submit feedback and bug reports in any language you prefer! Most developers speak English, so we may not be able to respond in your language, but we'll work with regional teams as necessary to address non-English feedback.
Riot isn't against different languages on the client. Even though PBE feedback is desired in English, you can play in whatever language you are comfortable with. As Amy Sery pointed out, the only reason it isn't included in the new client launcher is because it is a work in progress build and they haven't added multiple languages to it yet.

: When does URF start?
https://nexus.leagueoflegends.com/en-us/2019/07/dev-state-of-modes/
: Riot Kayle (Skin)
Not all skins are available in the loot pool, and unfortunately the skin doesn't need testing. So if the skin isn't in the loot system, you probably can't get it.
: Do the reports do something in the pbe?
Yes, reports absolutely work on the PBE. The only problem with reports is you're not actually notified of every single report that leads to punishing a player. But reporting a player will lead to them getting punished regardless of a notification. It may seem to not do anything at times, but it helps incredibly and it leads to future reports taking action.
: Mind you, there is a user I found out about, named Amy something. she goes around and downvotes every help article she comes across. she is also very condescending, hard to miss.
I am the one downvoting non-important posts to try and keep the Boards less cluttered and have more relevant things on the "Hot" page.
: Unavailable skins
The PBE is not a reward. You may choose to interpret some of it as a reward, or find ways to reward yourself, but the PBE is not a reward. The PBE is a testing environment and **volunteer work.** You are volunteering to play on an unstable server to find bugs and give feedback on new features. The PBE is not a treat for players, the PBE is not the ideal place to play, the PBE exists for testing new content as volunteer work. The return of RP was not solely for players benefit. With a steady income of RP, Riot no longer has to do special pricing in the store, which solves several issues including potential mistakes when shipping content to Live servers, overloading the store when people want to buy content (since they are limited in how much the can reasonably buy now), and testing content which may not be coded to be sold for BE. In your original post, it was addressed the champions with a Visual Update do need their old skins tested. This is absolutely true and this is a point that should be argued, because far too many updated champions don't have their skins re-released to be tested. Anything that is updated or new should be opened up for testing. However, old skins do not need testing. The chances for content that hasn't been changed to be bugged and for that bug to not already exist on Live servers is so incredibly minuscule is that there is no point to stress about it. Since there is such a negligible chance there, it is better to have people focus less on old content they want to play around with and direct it more to new content which does need testing. There is content that needs testing but isn't enabled or available. That is absolutely an issue that needs to be raised and fixed. Old skins aren't part of it. That is something that will generally be much more productive, because Riot does not have a good reason to go out of their way on something that isn't what the PBE is intended for.
: The NONE character.
Its between Nocturne and Nunu because that's where "NONE" fits in alphabetically. Its just a bug having an empty champion space.
: AFK buff please...
Suggestions for new content should be posted in their respective locations on the Live Boards or [Reddit.](https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/) The PBE is for content currently in testing. Also, yes, Riot does ban and punish people. I've seen leaverbuster occur on PBE firsthand for connection issues.
: We want urf
Riot has already confirmed a version of URF is coming later this year. Also, the PBE Boards isn't the right place to ask about this, it would be better suited for the Live Boards or the League of Legends subreddit.
: PBE store broken?
No, its not a bug. In the [RP is back post](https://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/client-new-features-feedback/3AEB3uHA-rp-on-pbe-itos-back) it details this is intended and has more information. > As part of this effort, we are undoing the special BE pricing in PBE. All content in the store will be set to live prices over the course of the next weeks. Also, new content will not have special pricing.

: Stop telling people not to post this more and more. Sorry but they've been ignoring it for DAYS now, it needs to be spammed because its game-breaking. Any time a champ is broken they remove them from the game but this time they ignore the broken item.
1 post with 100 upvotes is far better than 100 posts with 1 upvote. Just because a bug is major doesn't mean it should clutter the Boards and make it extremely tedious to find anything different and let other reports possibly go unnoticed. And just because Riot hasn't responded doesn't mean they aren't already aware, they just aren't great on communicating with these sorts of issues. For the time being, if somebody abuses the bug, just make sure to report them.

: First of all, ranked doesn't create toxic cancer or whatever you want to call it, because when the player realize that it is just a game where you can have fun, win, chill, the player will not act childish, this is what make the difference between a challenger and a bronze, a toxic player will never make it to challenger :), second: Ranked on pbe is not competitive, please, before commenting, I've already talked about that, third thing, a one trick Yi or one trick Yasuo or one trick "champion" are not all toxic, just because he is playing Yi doesn't mean he is toxic or he is good, those negative thoughs have a big impact on a player! :)
Just because you realize that ranked on PBE has no competitive merit, doesn't mean all players share that. There are heavy connotative differences between a draft game and a ranked game and the associations for a ranked game hurt testing. For testing, you want to try everything far and wide, find the most unexpected of interactions between systems to break them, but ranked carries the idea that you have to go for the best possible option you can, rather than these unique ideas. And again, just because people like you and may don't share the competitive view on ranked for PBE, you can't reasonably say that for the average person. You can't say that some newer people won't feel wrong for testing something unique when a toxic player flames them for losing, because ranked is meant to be competitive. Now for the other comment you replied to where I mentioned queue times would be longer.. > [{quoted}](name=Yiren,realm=PBE,application-id=AYQh7p7O,discussion-id=64Pt0rQy,comment-id=0003000000000000,timestamp=2019-06-10T18:40:49.413+0000) > > Yes, it will increase queue time but the player will have two choices, an AFK match or a LP match. How are those associated? Nothing says that a PBE ranked game will be less likely to have AFKs than a PBE draft game. Or are you trying to say something else? If you mean that people are less likely to leave because they would have repercussions for their rank, that goes against you saying it doesn't have any merit. And if the rank holds merit, that naturally breeds a competitive nature. AFKs are inevitable because there are people that don't value their PBE account like their main account, and they're also assholes. You mentioned some people AFK just to get their daily RP, how would that be any different on ranked? Ranked simply won't fix AFKs, and multiple queues just aren't feasible with the size of the playerbase. Besides, who says the AFKers would stick to Draft if there was multiple queues? It is a simple fact, people **will** believe a rank holds merit despite the fact PBE isn't a competitive environment. I know far too many people that play PBE ranked to "curbstomp" their way to Challenger. Even though you have the right idea, other people don't. Sure, PBE ranked *could* bring more people, but are the majority of those the people that actually help the PBE or are they there to boast their own ego? There are an endless amount of connotations that ranked brings which create a negative experience on the PBE. Some people expect it to be competitive which only brings up complaints when they are being matched with drastically different ranks, since matchmaking is essentially removed for the PBE since it isn't actually competitive. And there are more things like this which you can't rule out even though you understand better, as this has to go for the majority of the community.
: But adding ranked/flex on PBE =/= delete normals from PBE. They can keep normal in and add Flex too.
That will only increase queue times by needlessly splitting the community.
: bring back urf. the normal urf.

: Elementalist lux? where is it?
Elementalist Lux does not need testing and is disabled from the store. This is not a bug.
: Report a bug tool in client
Ideally, use both. The Boards is a great way for users to compile information on a bug and Riot to ask questions about it, and the Report A Bug tool allows for things to be easily categorized in Riot's internal systems. If somebody has already reported something on the Boards, upvote their post, add a comment if you have any additional info that wasn't mentioned.
: Why isn't normal draft on PBE?
Ranked is currently enabled for testing and as a result Normal Draft is disabled to decrease queue times.
