: Mass VFX Rebalancing
The Soraka starcall (Q) has a visual problem. When casting (Q), the target location shows a circle like it usually does. But, the stars are delayed appearing a few seconds after the circle disappears. This was observed in a game using Reaper Soraka. Opening up a custom game with Classic Soraka and taking (Q) at level 1, the first immediate cast of (Q) had stars delayed by 0.5 to 1 second. Consecutive casts were made once starcall (Q) went off cooldown; the stars would be delayed more and more (~2 to 3 seconds on the third cast) This bug was replicated on Classic Soraka and Reaper Soraka. I assume that the other Soraka skins have this visual bug. Cheers, Shadow
: SnowDay Jarvan
There is no "Snow Day Jarvan IV" skin ever created. That is why you can not find the skin in-store or in the game. Cheers, Shadow
: ‘Legend of the Poro King’ game mode coming soon to PBE.
Using "to the king" when turret diving and taking turret agro would switch turret agro to another target. Not sure if this is intentional.
: Loading Screen Borders on PBE?
There have not been an announcement of season 5 symbols on the PBE server, so they shouldn't exist to any of our knowledge. The loading screen boarders are for PBE accounts which have achieved silver or higher in ranked for season 4. Cheers, Shadow
: ‘Legend of the Poro King’ game mode coming soon to PBE.
Really fun game mode. I would like to point out that when the game starts the announcer still says "welcome to snowdown". In addition, when poro toss is used and hits a syndra ball, it absorbs the poro and says "invulnerable".
: ‘Legend of the Poro King’ game mode coming soon to PBE.
The amount of poros goodness is OVER 9000! I am curious if Braum will have any interactions with the poros, like any poro he throws gets a porostache. xD
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Winter Wonder Orianna!
I was testing her particles on Howling Abyss, somehow got a nearby poro to have the 'speed' particles from Ori's w. Really cute skin btw, really love the poro shield. Cheers, Shadow
: 0 IP and RP
The IP and RP are there, did you try and purchase something from the ingame store? If not, try purchasing something, it should give you the missing RP and IP values. Cheers, Shadow
: When i receive rp
That is not true. We do not get RP when patches come out. PBE testers only get a one time amount of 40000RP credited to their account when the account is first created. Cheers, Shadow
: Team Builder Testing Schedule
The teambuilder schedule is > Monday/Wednesday > North America: 1pm - 5pm PDT > Europe: 8pm - 1am GMT > > Tuesday/Thursday > North America: 6am-10am PDT > Europe: 1pm - 5pm GMT Have fun testing! Cheers, Shadow
: Ranked provisional question (I hope this isn't on live)
I believe this is due to the 1 game provisional system for PBE. I will assume that this is your first ranked game on PBE. In PBE, you play 1 game for provisionals. From what I see from most people, if you win, you will be placed in one of the silver divisions, if you lose, you will most likely be placed in bronze 1. So, to explain your question, you afk'ed, which counts as a defeat. Since you lost your provisional match, you are in bronze 1. Hope that helps. Cheers, Shadow
: Free Rp On PBE
When PBE accounts are created, they are credited with 40000 RP and 100000 IP. > Content outside of the starter packs (new champions, all skins, and runes outside of the starter pack) can be purchased normally. New content is generally priced at 1 IP so testers can easily access it through the IP gained by normal testing. As PBE's purpose is to test new content (priced at 1 IP), players are not gifted with any additional RP and RP purchases are also disabled. Cheers, Shadow
: Rune page bundle bugged my account.
Did you buy multiple standard rune bundles or just 1 for this bug? This is because the system does not limit you on how much bundles you buy, though you should only buy 1 to get 9 of each standard rune. You can use the rune combiner to combine the excess runes; this will give you a chance to obtain other runes you do not own and reduce the extra runes you currently own. I have attached a screenshot with a red arrow pointing to the rune combiner. Hope that helps ^.^ Cheers, Shadow
: Cant reconnect to chat on PBE
There is a server notification stating "Summoners, we are aware of an issue with chat services, we are looking into a fix". It should be fixed soon. Cheers, Shadow
: No IP/RP
The IP and RP are there, did you try and purchase something from the ingame store? If not, try purchasing something, it should give you the missing RP and IP values. Cheers, Shadow
: Is it normal to be unable to access the store?
Welcome to PBE. Usually we are able to access the shop. But you are correct about the black screen. This may be a bug with the current update (as I am also unable to access it) and may get fixed next update. Hang tight! Cheers, Shadow
: Blue buff particel bug
This may be due to the following: 1. Your current game may have loaded the wrong particle files; this can be solved by quitting and loading back into the current game 2. The particle files in your installation may be corrupted; this can be solved by reinstalling the client or clicking client repair. To find client repair, start the client, their is a little gear icon next to the minimize/close, click on it, an option to repair the client should be available. Hope that resolves the issue. Cheers, Shadow
: My friend's Pbe account was labelled as Inactive
Unfortunately, when an account has been deemed inactive, they are deactivated and re-entered into a pool of candidates for pbe testing in future cycles. My greatest apologies to your friend and I hope he may return to pbe in the near future. Cheers, Shadow
: Spell Icons new update pre season 2015 map
I believe that it is a shield buff you obtain from the second tier turrets when you stand near or pass by them. In your case, you may have gained a larger shield from the turret by standing near it longer, so the shield icon may have stayed with you longer. Cheers, Shadow
: After creating my PBE account I have not yet received 40,000 RP and 100,000 IP
The IP and RP are there, did you try and purchase something from the ingame store? If not, try purchasing something, it should give you the missing RP and IP values. Cheers, Shadow
: PBE acoount questions
You can have pbe clients on multiple computers. As long as 2 clients are not open at the same time the server will not kick you off one the the clients. Cheers, Shadow
: Report a constant trolling player?
You can report them at the end game screen next time you see him. Riot monitors reports made against PBE accounts. If needed, you can also send a report ticket in at support. Cheers, Shadow
: I can not get into the game PBE
Did you delete any of the pbe files? If yes, then try reinstalling the pbe client. If not, then you should try repairing the client itself, it may be a problem with your client (as I this patch works perfectly fine for my client) To find client repair, start the client, their is a little gear icon next to the minimize/close, click on it, an option to repair the client should be available. Hope that resolves the issue. Cheers, Shadow

: Rammus icon?
This icon is a beta icon. Their are two versions named "Grand Master Beta Tester" and "Master Beta Tester", they are awarded to the top 100 and 500 beta testers respectively at the end of each beta edition. Cheers, Shadow
: Thanks for testing the store! After relogging did the RP show back up?
My apologies for the delay, was waiting for PBE to come back online. Unfortunately, the RP did not show back up. I also decided to write up a detailed report for you below: Initially, I bought Pulsefire Ezreal from the champions tab in the Summoner Profile. It was to my surprise that their was no notification for the pulsefire icon like the live servers. As having past computer science experience, I tried to figure the possibilities. Thought, what if the code for initializing the summoner icon was only linked to buying the skin from the in-game store. To test my hypothesis, I wanted to refund the pulsefire skin and attempt to repurchase it from the in-game store this time. This process led to the discovery of the bug in question. After several days, I have still not received the refund RP. Unfortunately, the majority of my current purchase history is wiped for some reason (I assume that the server was coded to clear it). But, upon refunding the skin, I re-logged and found that the Pulsefire Ezreal was still in my purchase history, but instead had the text "Not Refundable" under the Action column. I have also noticed that the refund credits still displays '3', please refer to figure 1 below. From this, I assume that the code never considered the purchase of Pulsefire Ezreal from the champions tab as a purchase, causing the icon to not be initialized, RP not refunded and the refund credits not going down. If I could assist in any other way, please do not hesitate to contact me. Even though my computer science knowledge is moderate at best, I would like to contribute more. Cheers, Shadow

Yes their is. >"We monitor both harassment scores and reports made against PBE accounts, so if you encounter a toxic player in your game please use the report function.

: [client] Splash art bug after being kicked from lobby
This is an occasional bug. Their is nothing much you can do to remove the splash art on the side except by joining another champion select and simply hovering over another champion. Cheers, Shadow
: [SKIN IDEA] Snowflake Syndra
I personally love syndra, this would be a great idea. But the snowflake concept doesn't really fit in with her balls. But snowballs on the other hand would allow her to be the ball throwing sovereign we all love. :)

Rusty Blitzcrank is available in the store in my client, may be a bug on your client. Cheers, Shadow
: Seaon 5 Jungle Items
It all depends on what Riot wants us to test. > So here's what you can expect: On some days you'll be able to play the updated Summoner's Rift with most of what the live environment currently has. On other days, you'll be able to play on the updated Summoner's Rift along with all of our major 2015 preseason experimental changes, including the updated turrets, jungle changes, dragon changes, and more. We'll be flipping between the two for a few weeks to get extra testing coverage on both, so don't be surprised if things change on the fly. Cheers, Shadow
: Lux Icon on New Sr Is Just a Blue Box
Usually, whenever there are blue squares, the files just might have not loaded properly. Try restarting your game and/or client. Hope that resolves your problem. Cheers, Shadow
: *UPDATED* TESTING WINDOWS: Season 2014 Summoner's Rift + Preseason 2015 Summoner's Rift
There seems to be a problem where a pink ward is unkillable until you move the dragon out of the pit. If a pink ward is placed right over dragon, you cannot attack the pink ward, dragon is attacked instead. Attached is a screenshot of the placement of the ward.

: I'll be back with my nitpicks on the skin later, but I'm LOVING her recall and how her abilities appear now. But one thing I noticed, (not sure if this is just a PBE thing since I'm fairly new) is that her splash is still the old one. Chances are, this is a normal thing in the PBE realm.
You are correct, in the PBE realm, when new skins are released without a splash art, the original skin is usually used as a placeholder. Cheers, Shadow
: Victorius morgana
From surrender at 20, "This skin is a heavy work in progress and is not yet enabled in the store for testing!". So, just give it a few more updates, should be enabled. Cheers, Shadow
: buying to many rune bundles
I assume that you must have reached the maximum amount of runes you can own. You can use the rune combiner to combine the excess runes; this will give you a chance to obtain other runes you do not own and reduce the extra runes you currently own. I have attached a screenshot with a red arrow pointing to the rune combiner. Hope that helps ^.^
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Reaper Soraka
I enjoy this skin concept, the death theme to a healer is simply "to die for". Really nice job on the spooky particles!
: About the Victorious skin this year
I agree, all previous victorious skins had a form of armor on the champion. But Morgana has also been known to wear a dress. So a hybrid of both a dress of armor would show the best of both worlds. Finally, with the yellow and blue theme, may I suggest something along the lines of this:
: Thresh glitch
I think it may be intentional, have heard "phantoml0rd" mention it a few times on his stream in the past.
: Can't play....
You could attempt to try a client repair. When you start the client, their is a little gear icon next to the minimize/close, click on it, an option to repair the client should be available. Hope that helps. ^.^

: Sion Champion Update on the PBE!
When Sion targets a minion with his 'e', the damage is instant before the knockback. But if the minion is killable with the 'e', the minion is knocked back before taking damage and getting killed. Not sure if this is intended or a bug.
: Hexakill: Twisted Treeline Bug / Feedback Report Thread
My game just dc'ed when 6 people were fighting ontop of the east alter. Match history was not recorded, assume the game was dropped.
