: Restart your queue or play during a time NA players are free and awake. The PBE community is small in the sense that if there's nothing big that's available on PBE people won't bother playing on the server. Gather a pre-made if you really want to find a game - usually, that pops the queue a bit faster. After ~5 minutes of waiting or even less, re-queueing usually helps you find a game. Long queue times aren't exactly a bug. You can actually see how few people are present on these servers if you look at your friend's list - you're friends with 47 players and yet none of them are online. Long queue times on a server as small as this is expected.
It used to never be like this a month ago.

: There is a reason all these "no fun" modes are up so often. All of the other modes have issues. Despite people saying they are the only fun modes, more often than not they are the cause for frustrations/boredom and Riot wants to change these modes. * **URF**, Stale Champion pool. Its not even champions being OP, its just the fact people will almost always pick the top 10 strongest champions. Give us 10 bans? Then they play the top 20 and so on. * **ARURF**, People can't play the champion they want. The random pool was based on URF's most popular. Similar staleness issues and people complaining. * **Doom Bots**, Neat, but it loses its charm after the first few games, similar to the first iteration of the mode. Its entire concept is whacky OP abilities that you could never imagine to beat. Even Level 100 on the Gauntlet mode was beaten when it was in PBE testing and the first few days of being Live. * **OFA**, CC comps. Sure, people will try the new champions on it, but pretty soon we get the URF issue where everyone plays the same champions because they are consistently good against most picks. Another reason these modes are up so often is because they are rarely reliant on changes. No matter what you change in the game, chances are these modes will work just fine without any additional tweaks. And considering there are changes to Live servers every two weeks, this is a pretty nice to have. Especially if the RGM team wants to focus on fixing the favorite modes and making new ones.
And im just sitting here missing Hexakill.

Mine is just flat out failing to update anything. I made a post similar to this problem too.

: Doom Bots game mode is unplayable
: Why can't we just get 1 week of ARURF and 1 week of normal URF?
All Random sucks. Its like ARAM, its trash. You always end up having and unbalanced team. If riot is going to commit to just ARURF then it needs to be fixed significantly. **What riot should fix for ARURF if they're to keep it:** 1. Add bans or perma ban champs that are completely broken and are impossible to play against. 2. Keeping it balanced and still random is tough. Come up with a system to introduce some balance into both teams while giving out random champs. if these two things seem impossible then maybe its time to go back to regular URF. Where it was huge fukfest and always fun because you get what you want, and dont have to worry about getting a garbage champ to play against another broken champ. The only thing I think we do ask though for normal URF is: just add more bans.
: Blood Moon Champ Pool
They say this mode is centered around champs who can one-shot. And i can tell you from experience that fucking kennen doesn't do shit. Hes 100% useless in such a mode. He lacks damage that other champs have.
: Sorta bundling a few responses into a single comment here :) A lot of the champion pool curation was about trying to push the mode towards the "high mobility / Short time to kill" side of the spectrum, and those two champions (As well as the others people have asked about like Wukong/ Irelia) ended up feeling or playing a bit too far off that mark. That said, the pool is definitely something we could look into potentially expanding if the mode comes back later and it ends up feeling too restrictive. For Nocturne/ Yi specifically: Nocturne's ultimate definitely felt "Assassiny" and was appropriate for the mode, but once he got into fights he ended up having to be much more on the tanky side of things and ended up feeling rather odd. There were also just some unfortunate experiences: Because we mess with ult CDs the way we do, the "Darkness" spam was genuinely irritating to play against, and his E felt pretty terrible (for him, not for opponents) in a mode with as much mobility as there is. Master Yi actually had a similar problem oddly enough: As you might've noticed, there isn't really any hard CC. Because of how squishy he is as well, he ended up actually playing as "Meditate tank yi", which was fairly unsatisfying on both ends.
> I personally believe you heavily missed the mark on the champion list. I don't want to criticize the champions you did add because you clearly have your reasons even if I disagree with a pick like Ahri. But the champions you excluded? : Aatrox, Fiora, Graves, Irelia, Jarvan, Jax, Kled, Master Yi, Nidalee, Nocturne, Quinn, Riven, Twitch, Warwick, Wukong, and Xin Zhao are not to be seen? > You have basically said, Nocturne ult was annoying, and the lack of cc made Master Yi W annoying. Meanwhile Yasuo, Shaco, Rengar, Pantheon, Lee Sin, LeBlanc, Kennen, Kassadin, Fizz, Elise, Ekko, Diana, Camille, and Ahri can all interupt his W. The ones who can't are Zed, Talon, Kha'Zix, Katarina, Evelynn, and Akali. 14 champions can interupt it, and half of them can do it very reliably. And if we want to talk about people like Jarvan, Jax, and Wukong being too naturally tanky, why are we including Ekko, Pantheon, and Yasuo? Right here^ You guys should consider adding more to the pool. This mod isn't that fun playing the same champs over and over again with limited selection especially.

: Can't pick champs I want. ( probably can't pick champs in last match)
Same any champs that were in my previous game I can't pick including the one I chose.
: What WHAT? Next Patch? I need footage of the new champ TODAY.
All idle games will auto end in 3 hours.
: Stuck on reconnecting after update
Same thing, we might have to wait till the game reaches its max time.
: I kinda noticed it too... but not that big a deal??{{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}}
Its just annoying when I play it, especially on live where you paid for the skin...

: It would help you in the future - don't take names like that. You can try contacting support, but bans are not reverted here, so it does not guarantee re-access to the PBE.
Lol stupid... i've seen names with the N word in it and this is the name that gets banned XD Really dumb. Don't sit here and tell him "you should've read the summoners code" when names like slippery nipple and FN!grs exist.
: Disable Karthus on Doom Bots?
Karthus? What about brand? His passive is ridiculous especially when the bots group up, I haven't gone a single doom bot game without a penta with him...

: Darius PBE Changelist and Feedback
As I played a few games with him, Im going to be blunt on this. His rework feels bad in sense where he lost his ability to be quick and smooth in fights. I do not like the new Q as its too sluggish. To be honest though his entire kit now just feels slow and sluggish, sluggish champs never really go far in games. Just look at Sion for example. If the delay was reduced or simply removed he would feel like more of a responsive juggernaut in game.
: auto cancel your auto wif ult the end dont do it its bad for other players {{item:3070}}
: Lux ult bug.
Can confirm this. This bug is absolutely fucking annoying its ruining regular games. Please disable Lux.
