: You can't do anything about it. Riot removed most of the content including icons when the Hextech crafting was introduced on PBE.
I'm sure a solution will come up

wow best post i have ever seen you are amazing good job good post
: To which I replied that Riot never meant to give rewards for testing on PBE. I understand what he suggested, but I wanted to point out that testing is out of free will and without any 'payment'
You could also argue that we are dedicating time (some more than others) and that we could use any form of compensation that would encourage us to play more.
Having rewards for testing isn't a bad idea and I'm sure it has been brought up before. The problem with that is just the fact that we don't really deserve any rewards. It isn't that much of a difficult task playing a few pbe games once in a while in order to test. So it is not necessary for us to receive any type of reward for what little we actually do.
: PBE is not meant to have rewards. Testing is purely voluntary.
Obviously at the moment it isn't nor was it designed with the intention of rewards. He suggested that it SHOULD have rewards.
: Give other players a chance to play..
What exactly qualifies someone as a "real tester?"

: PBE Down for Maintenance
They're making a skin dedicated in your honor.
: Okay, say ranked was removed, and all the people who play ranked on pbe competitively had to move to something else, they would either move to normals and play competitively, or stop playing the pbe altogether, I still do not see the clear benefit that has come out of that situation. And yes, some may play ranked expecting to get away from normals, even though it may not happen, you are a bit less likely to get one in a ranked rather than always getting them in normals. And also, yes, I am one who plays ranked just because. I play because sometimes I dont feel like playing normals for whatever reason, be it trolls, the queue, or simply blind pick. Yes I will play norms with my friends for fun or to test things, but I can also do the same in ranked. Taking away the option would be pretty much saying "You'll play normals, bots, or gtfo" This I do not agree with.
You keep implying only competitive people play ranked. You can play competitive in any mode. Who cares if you play the same way in normals. As long as your mind isn't on gaining lp that's fine with me. And if you can do the same thing with ranked, logically speaking, you can do the same thing in normals.
: I have read your post, you're saying that people who play ranked are wasting their time doing it on pbe. That is your opinion to be valued, but I disagree with this because some just play ranked just because, or its a faster queue than normals,it doesn't matter when you got the border, but in order for you to have it, you played ranked. Ranked, like normals, bots, customs and all other game modes are a player's choice. It shouldn't matter if its on pbe or live. Removing ranked would have no benefit because everyone who does want a border ob pbe for whatever reason cant get it, everyone who plays ranked may play because they simply want to get away from the pbe normal trolls. There are many many reason people may have to play ranked, and what benefit will taking it away have on anything?
People don't play ranked "just because." They have reasons, which include getting the rewards. Nobody goes into ranked games expecting to get away from "normal" trolls. Because you're implying ranked doesn't have trolls. Obviously ranked is a player's choice, but that doesn't help anything. You're supposed to test, not go for a order. You're not understanding something. You keep saying it's their choice if they want a border or not. That is the entire point. You shouldn't get on pbe to get a border. And I'll state it again, removing ranked will create more of a testing environment instead of the competitive urge to get the season rewards.
: no, the irony is that if I remember correctly you are Challenger ranked in PBE
I've come to a sudden realization. I'm human, and humans can change their minds and perspectives on things. I played ranked and enjoyed it when it was more mmr based.
: Isn't it ironic that the person who thinks everyone who plays ranked on the pbe is after a cute shiny boarder is challenger? So what if people play ranked there? So what if they do want a shiny border? That's their choice, who knows, some of them do report bugs. Bottom line, I do not believe disabling ranked on the pbe will even have an impact on anything, let alone doing something good for it. In fact it may upset people who do wanna get their shiny border, and that would result in less people on pbe, while nothing is being gained.
Did you even read my post? If they want a border that means something, they should get it on live. Yes, I play ranked. Yes, I have a challenger border. Keep in mind I got this border last season. In a different season. There were different people on. Stating that you think it won't have an impact really means nothing. Why? Because it hasn't been tried and you haven't stated reasons why it wouldn't work.
: I agree as well. When I saw the option for ranked I was confused simply because it does not seem like there would be any point. I waited 5+ mins on a blind which is insane wait time considering that the reason I am in beta is testing not getting ranked where it does not effect my normal account.
Yes. That's an issue I think this would help solve as well.
: i so damn agree to that idea... because timer for blind pick is stupid long for no reason, but i do understand why we have to wait that long. but on another post i have read that the main reason why option like that are there is because they want to have PBE as close to how live is right to fully test for any and all bugs
You can test anything everything you want to test in normals, not just ranked. If they want to play ranked they can stay on live.
: its true that testing out new balances on champions in a competitive is a good idea, only if they don't ban him first. if they did then in that sense it defeat the PBE testing... so overall anymode that let you ban champion is not really helping on the testing part of PBE
You make a valid point. That also contributes to the idea of if we let that champion go through then it'll hurt our chances of winning. A mindset that contradicts the point of PBE.
: Well I think ranked is still there in order to test out balances in champions in a competitive setting where people are more likely to "tryhard"
The irony in that is ranked is also the place where many people troll or afk.

: I'm having a hard time replicating this even tho it's so widely reported. Have no fear, [Riot is looking into it](http://community.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/lMTPFVnH-riven-q-bug?comment=0000), but it would help if we could provide them with specific reproduction steps. I tried it on new/old SR with Riven's original skin. I bought a Doran's Sword (tried also with nothing), went straight to wolves, and used Q on 'em but it did 37-ish (the base 10+ bonus 17ish) damage. Am I doing something differently from you? Or is it fixed already? O.o
It might be fixed already then.
