: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Pulsefire Shen
Hey there, I logged in specifically to comment on this beautiful skin! It's about time Shen finally got one and it's Pulsefire, great choice! I love the splash art (wow, so hot) and his particles are fantastic. I love how the particles also has a nice subtle effect of lotus petals, what a creative idea! I apologize for being picky, but I noticed that Shen's regular auto animations looks odd. It's probably due to the length of the cyber sword he is wielding. It's not bad, but the size is quite large compared to his base since he's using a dagger/small sword. My suggestion is to make it thinner and possibly shorten the length a bit to make it look more natural for Shen when he auto attacks. The empowered Q autos and animations are perfect. Another thing I would like to mention, will there be a back animation after the recall? It is kinda weird seeing him just standing there after the recall, where he jumps into a portal below. Overall, excellent skin and I'm looking forward to see its live release!
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Freljord Taliyah!
This probably has been discussed, but I would like to mention that Taliyah should have a much lighter skin tone with this Freljord skin. It will fit nicely with the ice theme personally.
: Taliyah's w should also throw Taliyah like zigg's W.
While it is a neat idea, there is a possibility that it will give too much power into her kit. Her ultimate has the ability to go over walls already.
: For enemies, the E outer ring is orange, and the Q ring is red :) Hope that helps!
Ohhhhhh, I completely forgot what it looks like to players on the enemy side. Good to know and thanks for the response!
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Program Soraka!
Hey there, just want to give my first impressions of the new Soraka skin. **_Model_** First off, the model looks fantastic! I love the smooth curves of the model and shows a sleek modern design, which makes it seem futuristic. The horn or the headpiece is a nice touch, especially with a hint of green glow. **_Voice Over_** I think it's alright, nothing fancy and sounds slightly robotic. I honestly can't tell much of a difference, but that's just me since I'm hearing impaired. **_VFX_** I have to say, the ability particles are outstanding and blows Reaper Soraka out of the water. I love the tech-y look and the green sharp triangles. All of the abilities are great, but I have one major issue with one ability and that is her E (Equinox). While the particles for that certain ability is great, but the color is the main problem. The outer ring of the E is green and the inside is a small purple color. People might mistake it for her Q (Starcall) or think it is a healing field. Is there a possibility of making the whole ability purple for more readability or clarity? Overall, it is a great skin and I personally love it. Nice to see Lissandra have one too!
: When Will Aurelion Sol Be Available on the PBE?
Should be today since the reveal is up and the PBE patch is coming in a few hours.
: @Riot Exgeniar Azir
A Riot member has confirmed that the keystone mastery, Fervor of Battle, working with Azir's sand soldiers is indeed a bug. It will be removed or fixed in due time. I honestly don't know how the sand soldiers made Fervor work and stack with each auto-attack, but it should have never worked in the first place. It was just an unintentional mechanic that players found out during the preseason changes.
: <3 <3 I would love more feedback on him! I did fix a bunch of other bugs with Azir today.
Great! I just wanna say thank you for the work you've done already, especially for my favorite birdman. Of course, I'll give you more feedback if I can find anything!
  Rioter Comments
: gamekingcaleb, Of course you're always more than welcome to provide suggestions! (And thank you for those suggestions.) While we are focused on resolving the crashes at the moment, your two points above are noted. 60 seconds per player is a long interval and we don't expect to have that duration for live. Reduced or disabled animations is something we want for a later release. Once again, thanks for chiming in!
Thanks for the awesome response and keep up the excellent work! I simply loved everything.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Challenger Nidalee!
Hi again! The new skin for {{champion:76}} looks awesome and stunning, especially the color scheme! The cougar form is definitely my favorite and it reminds me of Zoids. The particles are perfect in my opinion! Of course, I would like to provide my suggestion to improve the skin. I only have one issue with the model and that is her hair, specifically the base of the ponytail. There is nothing there to hold Nidalee's lush and beautiful hair. It just looks off and I would highly recommend adding a pink-ish red hairband or hairpiece. I believe it will be a nice touch and the hair won't look like it is magically standing up. I attached an image to see what I am pointing out: [http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a71/gamekingcaleb2794/ChallengerNid_zpsr157bvhu.png](http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a71/gamekingcaleb2794/ChallengerNid_zpsr157bvhu.png) Can't wait to see the splash art!
: (Dec 9th) New Champ Select is Up Again -- COMPLETE
So far, I have no issues with it and I have not experienced any crashes...yet. If I may, I would like to provide a couple of suggestions for the new champion selection to make the overall experience more enjoyable: - The overall time to pick the champions and the banning phase is simply too long to complete. 60 seconds to pick your champion is too much time and it should be cut down to 30 seconds instead of 60 seconds. - Having an option to disable the animations during the champion selection will be a nice addition for players who have slower computers or just don't care for the "eye candy." I love the new champion select, it's very fresh and unique in my perspective.
: Snowy bard!
It will have to stay gold for clarity reasons. This has been mentioned a ton of times.
: Pretty sure Elderwood bard has a blue effect instead of the gold, so that's not a reason the designers wouldn't do it on the Snow Day Skin
The projectile is blue yes, but not when the opponent is in the "statis" mode. It's yellow just like when you press Zhonya's.
: Snow Day Bard Ultimate
It will have to stay gold for clarity purposes. Elderwood Bard does the same thing.
: Bard again.. =)
The main reason why the opponents in Bard's ultimate is yellow is for clarity purposes. Making it blue or white will make the opponents think they are slowed or stunned instead of being "zhonyas'ed" and get confused.
: Poppy Update Feedback Thread
Hey there, here are my first impressions on the abilities for Poppy: **Abilities** Passive: The passive is quite transparent and hard to see, especially when the shield is on the ground. Imagine that during fights against multiple enemies. The overall color is fine. Q: It may need a new indicator to show the ability's actual area of effect instead of the regular directional indicator because it is incorrect. Other than that, it looks good. W: I have no issues with the W at all, so it's good to go. It's clear to see and I can see the movement speed boost. E: The E feels a bit clunky at first, but I got used to it and have no issues after using the ability a few times. R: Her ultimate is so weird and holding down the "R" key doesn't feel natural to me at all. I thought you can click it once and then press it again to let go on quick cast, but it didn't. I personally would like it that way and using the ability will feel more smoother.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Snow Day Bard!
I love the skin! It looks adorable and fits Bard pretty well. All of the particles are excellent (dat w tho) and the portal is beautiful. Loved everything about it, so I'm happy to see this skin as a Bard main.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Elderwood Hecarim!
Just wanna say that the splash art is just gorgeous! Props to the artist!
: Hiya! We looked into this and ultimately decided it wasn't an issue and we were comfortable shipping as is.

We looked into this and ultimately decided it wasn't an issue and we were comfortable shipping as is. Alrighty! I agree that it wasn't much of issue, especially when you play Azir in-game and you just don't notice it that much. Just wanted to provide my thoughts and thanks for looking into it!
: Illaoi Feedback Thread
Hey there, I would like to leave my feedback here about Illaoi, the Kraken Priestess. First of all, I believe that the concept of this champion is well done and it does feel like I am carrying Nagakabouros in the idol. The overall character design is simple, yet effective. Here are my positives and negatives for Illaoi: **_Positives_** - Creative theme and simple character design. - Ability particles are impressive and the color scheme is perfect. - Cool recall! - Tentacles dances with Illaoi! - Voice-over is excellent and fits the character. - I feel strong and powerful when playing Illaoi, despite being a bit slow. Like a real juggernaut! - Amazing wave clear with her Q, Tentacle Smash. - W, Harsh Lesson, is a dunking ability! - E, Test of Spirit, is very creative and original. - Flexible build path, can be built full tank or a bruiser. **_Negatives_** - In-game icon of Illaoi doesn't match with the other champions. The white background and the dimmed face just sets it apart from the rest. - I personally feel that Illaoi should be a lot stronger in teamfights than in lane. She is currently a monster in lane against melee champions and just falls off during the "teamfight" phase. - Extremely weak against ranged champions in top lane like Quinn and Gnar for example. This is fine because she has a clear weakness, but it is very easy to take advantage of and can be very frustrating. - Tentacles are too easy to take down when against ranged champions that I mentioned above. - R, Leap of Faith, is on the weak side and not impressively powerful. Either the damage is pretty low or very reliant on landing the ability on champions. - All physical damage, no true damage like Garen or Darius. - Void Bringer Illaoi's tentacles are not impressive and sometimes transparent. I have not experienced any bugs so far. It would be great if the negatives can be looked at and will have a solution to make Illaoi a fun champion to play overall. Of course, these are not all of the feedback I can provide, but this will do. Another great champion enters the Rift!
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Elderwood Hecarim!
I have to say, the model is extremely beautiful and the Elderwood skin theme is a perfect fit for Hecarim. My favorite part of the whole thing is the design of Hecarim's antlers. A similar reason to why I bought Elderwood Bard! The only suggestion I can come up with to improve the overall skin is the colors on the model/texture. It is very similar to the grass of the Summoner's Rift and I think turning up the contrast will help separate between the two.
: I haven't got to try her yet, but why does she have AD scalings instead of AP? I would think more AP would let her powers as a priestess grow stronger, and that idol isn't just a heavy hunk of stone. Thematically though, she's very well done. I wasn't imagining a big, tough woman in Shadow and Fortune, but it works better than a chubby, old woman.{{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}} Also, how do you pronounce her name?
Illaoi ---> ill - ow - wee
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Gravelord Azir!
Hey there, just want to leave a quick suggestion to Azir's new skin model. I apologize if this is a bit inappropriate, but his upper chest just looks...like a boob plate. You can see the lightness of the texture forming a round shape on his chest and it looks a bit awkward to me haha. Any way the texture can be adjusted a bit? The splash art looks fantastic though!

: Smaller 5.22 Marksmen Changes PBE Feedback Thread
With the new item changes, I personally felt pretty weak as Kalista even when I have Blade of the Ruined King, Runaan's Hurricane, and Beserker's Greaves. Her auto attacks just felt slow and awkward compared to live where she felt smooth. Maybe the attack speed "nerf" of the mentioned items is a bit too much for Kalista?
: Just played a game against Caitlyn and her auto attack animations did NOT come out at all. Only the projectile will appear, but not the auto attack animation.
Not experiencing the bug anymore. Thanks for the quick fix!
: Miss Fortune PBE Feedback Thread
Hello, just want to mention MF's Passive real quick. It is very loud in my opinion, especially when using her arcade skin. At least I know that her passive is working!
: Caitlyn Gameplay Update Feedback Megathread
Just played a game against Caitlyn and her auto attack animations did NOT come out at all. Only the projectile will appear, but not the auto attack animation.
: Can Kindred's ult please not require a champ to be selected?
You can bind a certain key on the keyboard to automatically selfcast it on yourself. It's a similar scenario to Lissandra, where I have to press R on myself. You'll have to go to the abilities and bind it there. I like to use "T" because it is right next to "R" and it is easy to access.
: but what about the visuals? besides the skillset itself
If you mean the design of the model and the mask on Wolf, that will not be changed or adjusted. The Kindred splash art was developed long before the 3D model was developed. Riot probably decided to give Wolf real fangs and mouth because it is more easier to create than adding fancy visuals of a glowing eerie mouth. Another good example is Lamb having 3 fingers in-game instead of 5 fingers in the splash. My bet is that they went the easy way and developed Kindred the easiest/fastest way, so they can prepare for Worlds and the Pre-Season. I may be wrong of course, but it is extremely rare to see model changes or anything like that when a new champion is released on PBE. Without a doubt, Kindred will be released during patch 5.19 and the bugfixes/changes may come in the future patches.
: They said that they were mainly working on the Season 6 Patch. It requires a LOT of work. I'm sure that's why they put off kindred for a while. Honestly I don't think Kindred will be released next patch due to this. Cause they straight up didn't have time for it. Honestly I hope they don't make kindred go live in the next patch. She's so unbalanced and strange atm. She needs work before they release her.
Kindred will be released in the next patch, 5.19. It's a part of their schedule and it will be released, even with the bugs that are present. Remember when Azir came out? He was a mess and full of bugs, which took a few patches and bugfixes to make Azir finally viable because the bugs were in the way. When Kindred is released on live servers, Riot will get a chance to see how they will work out because it is a lot larger than PBE.
: Hiya! Glad you like her! I'm personally really happy she's receiving this skin. :D Her spear is sitll WIP. You should see some updates to it tomorrow on PBE. Her (W) passive is still being worked on as well.
Great! Glad to hear that. I'm looking forward to it. :D
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Championship Kalista!
Hi there! The Championship skin for Kalista looks great and I kind of predicted that she will get it this year. My only concern I have for the skin is Kalista's main spear that she is holding, which looks pretty green and it's similar to her classic skin. Is that intentional or will it be changed to be blue later? EDIT: It's also the same thing for Kalista's W passive. I'm guessing it is for clarity purposes?
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: PROJECT: Lucian!
Ok, whoever created the splash art for Lucian's skin...PLZ tell that person "I LOVE YOU." http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-aWzrao1-OAE/Vdy8TRrP4lI/AAAAAAAAwZE/lmYTDQmDXuU/s1600/Lucian_Splash_6.jpg
: great execution on this new skin. you also get the refference immediately ;) but as others have allready mentioned there is still room for improvement: - color diversity: the skin is almost this dark/light gray. on the Zed skin you make way better use of the color differences - feet: i'm aware that the Monarch SR armor replaces parts of the body but I think you went over the top here. sure, the heels are a neat idea but thats not a reason to make it look so unnatural. http://i.imgur.com/c0ZG9b2.png http://i.imgur.com/jBM9dSt.png the idle stance is just impossible with a normal human body or at least very painfull

I was like, o.0
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: PROJECT: Lucian!
First Impressions: - The model looks really good, I love the contrast between the teal jacket and the orange particle effects. - It feels like Lucian and the PROJECT skin works extremely well with him. - Every abilities feels impactful, including the sound effects. - The recall and spawn animation is sooo smooth and it has Lucian's personality into it. - Nothing feels buggy at the moment. Quick question, what made the team decide that Lucian should represent the color orange? Since there is Yasuo and Yi, should Lucian have different color particles like teal or blue? Just wondering!
: Academy Ahri's hair
The splash art never fully represents the in-game model. "**Academy Ahri's hair is pink in the splash but her in game model looks kinda pink**" It's still pink right?
: Whats the deal with the Lucian buffs?
You did not read his W change for Lucian correctly. Read it again. "Now gives movement speed when **Lucian OR his allies _damage_ a marked target**, instead of **only** Lucian." It is saying that Lucian can now get a movement speed boost when he or his allies attack a marked target from his W. ONLY Lucian will get the movement speed boost. The W change is the same as live, but his allies will now be able to proc it off for him.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Arcade Riven!
A cool thing I want to suggest is whenever Riven activates her ultimate, the knight visor on her head goes down and her eyes will glow red (maybe not red) underneath. It's a neat way to show enemies that she is in a combat mode, ready to kill. See example image below. [http://cdn.pastemagazine.com/www/system/images/photo_albums/dark-souls-ii-bosses/large/ds2-2.jpg?1384968217](http://cdn.pastemagazine.com/www/system/images/photo_albums/dark-souls-ii-bosses/large/ds2-2.jpg?1384968217)
: In my opinion, the K.O should be moving to killing enemies with her ult. Since Riven {{champion:92}} is a combo champion, and her ult is an execute or "finishing move", it would be more fitting. The death animation could be the classic game over.
> [{quoted}](name=Pekenide,realm=PBE,application-id=cMKtzQHY,discussion-id=yEJ4rr8O,comment-id=0008,timestamp=2015-08-04T22:54:20.527+0000) > > In my opinion, the K.O should be moving to killing enemies with her ult. Since Riven {{champion:92}} is a combo champion, and her ult is an execute or "finishing move", it would be more fitting. The death animation could be the classic game over. I personally agree. I honestly thought that the "K.O." icon will appear whenever Riven kills an enemy champion.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Arcade Riven!
I really love this skin. Looks great and I love the knight theme. I'll be sure to test it out on PBE soon!
: Nerf Elise
Well, yeah, it's Elise. She is known for her powerful ganks in the early game and the buff towards her stun ability helped her tremendously. You have to remember though, Elise is extremely dependent on landing the cocoon ability, so she can get up to you and deal a good amount of damage. If she missed it or you dodged it, she can't do much to you. Also, people these days just never wards, always overextend, and gets caught by Elise. People are starting to realize that Elise is still a champion and wondered where she disappeared off to.
*Fiora You need to clearly explain why Fiora's ult cooldown needs to be higher. I mean, it's fine the way it is and it is hard to pull it off since you have attack from 4 different directions. Also, the ult only lasts 8 seconds and that's not a lot of time.
: If you ult someone and your team kills them, does it still generate the healing field or no.
> [{quoted}](name=WolfBV,realm=PBE,application-id=2EAF660193FA3B668D7234B3AEBB530C5AB7F651,discussion-id=o2AhsbIs,comment-id=000000000001,timestamp=2015-07-26T05:20:53.455+0000) > > If you ult someone and your team kills them, does it still generate the healing field or no. It will only work if Fiora hits at least ONE vital/side and then the heal will come if the team kills that target. A player can't just press R with Fiora and leave the teamfight, hoping to get the AOE heal for the team.
: Fiora Recall animation
Unfortunately, she won't have a recall animation. :( The same thing happened to the previous champions that got updated like {{champion:21}} and {{champion:38}}
: Fiora Feedback Thread
I saw the updated splash art on PBE today. It is a huge improvement! http://www.surrenderat20.net/2015/07/724-pbe-update.html
: Are PBE Accounts Permanent?
PBE Accounts are indeed permanent. It will ONLY deactivate if you are inactive (no login for a certain amount of time) or getting banned due to negative activity.
: Tahm Kench-The River King
Tahm Kench is ready for PBE testing, it's just not up yet.
: PBE Bugs & Feedback Thread: Master Chef Tahm Kench!
The idea of this skin is really good, but the orange color is so freakin' bright on the eyes and I think the contrast should be toned down a bit. Other than that, it's a nice comical skin that fits TK's theme.
: Hello, I liked that finally there was a new skin for Zac, but it seems too expensive for a Skin which basically changed the color of Zac.
Don't forget that there are new particle effects for all abilties, new recall animation, splash sound effects, and new model w/ texture. That's basically a price of a 1350 RP skin! Also, 1350 RP skins like this one are **_always_** on sale for 975 RP for a few days after release, so it's a perfect opportunity to get it.
