: Please, tell me more about this Riven discord
Howdy, I'm actually on of the mods for the discord. We're a pretty cool group that welcomes any mains, and have indeed been super psyched for these changes. Here's an invite link for you: https://discord.gg/rivenmains Feel free to hop on and discuss the changes, most of our member base is pretty leveled headed. Just be warned the general channel is kinda a meme mess and most rational discussion happens in the "Builds and Strategies" and "Matchups" channels.

: [6.14] Cooldown Pings on PBE
I use Left-Alt to level up my abilities (since I couldn't build space to it), will this cause an issue with the ping controls?
: New "Nexus Siege" game mode coming soon to PBE for the RGM queue.
Holy cow, this looks amazing! It's obvious a lot of work was put into this and I can't wait to play it. Out of curiosity, what was the best bug that came up while designing the mode?

While this will make him more of an AD Caster, allowing a bit more ult spam, what about W? The skill is still useless on ADC Ezreal other than a bit of extra AS and that requires you to waste E to jump into it. Could W possible get some form of change to make it useful for AD Ezreal? Or would that make him too strong?
: Actually its because the animations are longer for the PF skin, glitched like that for years...
Which is exactly my point. Don't get me wrong, I looove that skin but I would never use it in ranked. When I push Q I want it to be near instant, not the half second it is currently.
: The only thing that riot must update on this skin is the splash arth its too cheasy
Not true at all. If you actually play Pulsefire and then play another of Ez's skins, the Pulsefire feels like all the animations take 4 times longer.
: 'One For All: SR' featured game mode coming soon to the PBE
So will this be coming out for testing today? Or not until later this week?

: They are meant to be like that. Its the old arcade texture of things.
No they're not, go look at the skin on Surrender @ 20, they look nothing like that.

: New HUD Feedback
I like the new HUD. It's a big change, but a neat one over-all. Gona make this a short post and just point out what I don't like about it: ---- 1) The Tab menu. I love that we can now re-order the champions to suit our preferences. I hate how small it is. The tab menu is roughly 1/2 the size of the old one, which is rather annoying as I end up taking more time to read the enemy build paths. 2) The FPS is now a super small speck over the minimap. As someone who tries their hardest to optimize League to run as fast as possible, the FPS counter being so small is just weird. 3) Your champion stats. What in all the nine Hells of Teemo possessed you to change it to this minuscule box just to the left of your champion icon. This thing uses the smallest font I've ever seen and is impossible for me to read with the average monitor screen. I have no clue what my attack damage is. I have no clue as to what my ability power is. The old system worked way better instead of that stupid box. ----- That's my piece.
: [Jayce] Strange W and R damage interaction.
I was unable to reproduce it myself, but found something similar to what Dark is talking about. http://boards.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/bugs/h8Tpkuf4-bugs-issue-with-jayces-cannon-w-interaction-with-hammer-form When attacking in Hammer Form right after using Hyper Charge, the empowered strikes do about 15% damage.

: Dodging on PBE (Possible Solution)
I agree with Amy. My client can act really weird at times, to the point of crashing for no reason. 5 minutes is pretty annoying when that happens but an hour? I agree that dodging because you can't play Ekko is not in the spirit of the PBE, but punishing everyone is not the answer.
: The Hunt for Khazix and Rengar
Can you provide some context? What gamemode was it in? In ranked games all the easter eggs are disabled.
: Behind those changes, Riot has done a lot of math. And yes, your maximum mana went down, but I disagree with the regeneration. If you miss 200 mana, the 1,5% inreased mana reg results into the old 3 mana per 5 sec. Maybe it is targeted to take away some early game power from champs like LeBlanc or to make Clarity a more used summoner spell.
That is a problem for mages like LeBlanc who spend more points in the offense tree than utility. Plus a LeBlanc would rather take Ignite for early kill potential rather than clarity for another 3 spells before running out. Plus, Clarity does nothing late game while ignite can still help secure kills.

: Especially being it's a move that both heals you while dishing out that damage, I also think it should be nerfed. Remember the last champ that had a move that both healed and did damage at the same time...*looks at Ezreal's W* Let's just say it doesn't anymore at all.
: Today patch same problem! Over 35min Patcher was stuck at 99% and CPU-usage was again over 80% (but 0% IO from hard drive). The process LolPatcher.exe stuck ! The UX works fine! Because if i kill both UX-process, the LolPatcher process still work with over 70% CPU-usage and no errors appear! I just kill LolPatcher.exe and restart again. The Patcher scanned files to 950 files and instantly the launch button appear (only 2min). There was no download or applying the patch anymore after the scan! It looks like the patch is complete (if you wait some minutes at 99%) but the process can't close itself. Because after 2-3minutes (patch complete) there was no read or write in the folder anymore (just 32min doing nothing)! Before the new cycle 5.10 applying patch(99%) was always under 5 min and process usage was only 35-40%! TLDR: Patch is completely (applying all patches after 2-3min at 99%) but the process Lolpatcher.exe stuck forever! Windows 7 Service Pack 1 x64 with all updates!
An easier fix is to just copy and paste the SO_K file that basically tells the patcher the patch is done.
: Feature, not a bug.
No it's not. If this was a feature, then it would say so on the skill tooltip or on the Wiki.
: I've been on the PBE for a measly six months, I'm entitled to try the new champion first! You're gonna have to sit your entitled ass down and wait like the rest of us.
You either didn't read what I said or didn't care. I did not mention this, but I already tried him (only once) in a custom game and found him to be rather fun. But I had to get off after that, so I had planned to get on today to do some of the stuff in a custom with buddies who regularly test stuff. But, lo and behold, there are over 10x the amount of people on the PBE than I have ever seen before so it is impossible to get on right now. The worst part, is a lot of people are not getting off once they get on as they just leave their computer on so they can play more later which puts even more strain on the server. I'm not "Oh, I wana go play Ekko too! This is unfair blah blah blah!" No, I'm annoyed that **a large portion of these people are abusing a privilege they have been given**. We are given PBE access to find issues with the new items, champions, maps, etc that riot releases for us. In exchange for taking time to do this for them, they let us on to a private server with everything unlocked, and even take the time out of their day to come play with us from time to time. So, all these people who are doing nothing but playing Ekko right now are not reporting bugs they find. A large portion won't even look at the boards. They just got on to play Ekko and that is it. Normally, I wouldn't care but all these people who normally don't use their account getting on at once has locked a large amount of the community out of the servers **with nothing to show for it**. The PBE is a privilege, we have a job to do in it. These people are using all the the benefits without doing any of the work.
: [Karma] - For some players Focused Resolve (W) doesn't work on jungle monsters
Lunar, according to YouTube "playback on other websites has been disabled by the owner".
: "It seems like a lot of people are not using their PBE account to actually test anything, but they just want to play Ekko hence why there are more people on than ever before." that is testing
No, testing is "If I do this, then what happens?" "Oh, I can use my ult to jump into their fountain and get god mode to never die. I better report that." Hardcore testing is going into a custom game and just trying to find things that a broken. Most of the people on right now never normally play on PBE. They aren't looking for bugs, they just want to play the new person. And while I would like to play Ekko too, I also want to try to find what is wrong with him first.
: Ekkos E-Phase Drive Initial Tumble Range Longer than intended? I was goofing around in customs with Ekko and noticed his E ability goes alot and I mean ALOT farther than the range indicator, I feel this can be exploited but I don't know if this intentional or not since he was just released on PBE. One thing to mention is that I didn't actually have a way to record video so I downloaded a fraps trial. Here's a video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GaqLAEVDUY
This is actually due to how the walls in League work. People like Lissandra, Ekko, Graves, Lucian, Rek'Sai, can dash through walls larger than their range should be as long as they make it at least half-way through the wall. To prevent players from getting stuck, walls have a kinda push coded in that will shove players out starting from the center. So if you make it half-way, the wall will push you the rest of the way out.
: I wanted to test a theory I had with his Q and {{summoner:12}} If you {{summoner:12}} to a turret Q and then ult, will the Q globalize like sivir's Q or will it despawn like ahri's. I think the Q should follow you back to base but you never know. I also wanted to test some interactions with targeted stuns and his ult.
I can actually confirm this. I played a couple games before I had to get off for the night (didn't get Ekko surprise surprise) and the allied Ekko recalled, threw Q, then ulted back to lane. It acts just like Sivir's and will fly back to him. It's super fast though.

And to everyone a part of *Amy's Testing Minions* good luck finding all the bugs. I gotta agree with you, I wanted to test if Ekko can use his ult while he is hit by a bind, for example Lux's Q, can he still ult while he is binded? Also I have never had a problem with logging onto the PBE in the 3 years I have had it. It's so annoying when people just log on to show of to their friends that they have played the new champion once but never post any feedback {{item:3124}} .
I don't know why, but it struck me while reading your comment that Rageblade looks kinda like Kha'Zix's claws upside down.
: Yes and no. First, PBE accounts now don't expire, unless they are in desuse. Also, a few days ago there was an increase in PBE accounts approvals. So yeah
I wish they would turn the expire thing back on, just so people who use the PBE properly can actually get in at times like this.
: How do I do this?
That is his joke. (CTRL + 1)

: In my opinion he does not need mana regen cause he is pretty good with keeping his mana early game. You don't even need CDR because his cooldowns are fairly low. If combined correctly with your massive shield and the possibility to reposition with E you dont really need to build defensive. He is an assassine and dont need to be tanky. His W shield is more then enough.
> [{quoted}](name=Violent,realm=PBE,application-id=2EAF660193FA3B668D7234B3AEBB530C5AB7F651,discussion-id=Zn8Ur3Qw,comment-id=0001000000000000,timestamp=2015-05-14T02:53:00.410+0000) > You don't even need CDR because his cooldowns are fairly low. Maybe late-game they are, but so are 90% of non-ults late-game. Early game his cooldowns are quite long. At level 1, Q: 11 W: 22 E: 15 Full damage Ekko will one-shot someone, **but that is what he's designed to do**. Full damage Irelia can insta-kill people. Full damage anyone will just destroy another squishy, but most people will not go for your 810 AP build. Also, non of his abilities are instant damage wise. His Q does little damage on the way in and takes a second to come back making dodging really easy. His W has a 3 second delay, it's easier to dodge that than Veigar's. His E has a low scaling and low base damage and is the only spell he has that does instant damage. His ult is also super hard to aim with, you have to walk somewhere and hope the enemy is there 4 seconds later.
: Ekko ability details are out: thoughts on how to build him?
Lichbane and Ludens are a must for an assassin build. Zhonya's for defense. Nashor's Tooth would be good with his passive and W passive.
: Ekko Feedback Thread
Haven't played him just yet (server is still down as I type this) but I'm kinda worried about his stun. It's almost as big as Amumu's ult but on a rather short cooldown and stuns people for 2.5 seconds. That is a long time for such a low cooldown ability.
: Toxicity in PBE
The first thing to do is report them. All reports go directly to Riot staff, no machines. Second, just ask around in public chat to find people who are just all-around fun to play with. Third, if you have a bug you want to test but can't do it alone we have a public group called **Amy's testing minions**. Just join the chat under the same name and anyone on is willing to help out. I recommend friending **Lunar Revel** and **Amy Sery** as they have both been on PBE for a long time and like to help out. Also feel free to send me a friend request, I've been on PBE for about 5 months now so I know my way around.
: Do mystery skins have a better chance of getting general legacy skins than the other ones?
Legacy are, for the moment, disabled on PBE. Riot is thinking of allowing them in the future, but if you didn't get one early you won't for a while.
: *an untargetable black hole
Exactly. There are several errors here I copied straight from the picture.

: Yeah that guy at the bottom I believe also said his IGN, may want to black that out too.
No he didn't. Not sure what that meant but it isn't the dudes name.
: Also in the teaser you see him travel back in time multiple times so I personally don't think that his ult is fake. It could possibly less than 7 seconds but he can definitely travel back in time .
Oh I'm all for him going back in time, that would be awesome. But to have it affect every player in the game (except yourself because then you could ult over and over) would be game changing to an outrageous degree.

: Guys, Ekko is a community creation; Here's the link to the concept http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=3851086
I went and read the post and while the name is the same, he has no connections to time at all. Some of his abilities may scale with attack speed (Though they already did that with Yasuo so I doubt that) but other than that I doubt there will be much similarity wise.
: So when he ganna come out ? Ahahaha
Most likely anywhere between a week from now to the end of the month. Expect to know his abilities beforehand though.

: Leaverbuster warning on a game i didnt leave.
Leaver Buster is far to strict on PBE in my opinion. While I get the punishments are stricter due to how the PBE works plus the selection system, the client is buggy and prone to crashing due to it being a testing platform. I really wish they would lessen leave punishments a little due to this.
: The current meta and why it's so one-sided.
Not just AD Carries, but most AP Carries do nothing. All their damage is spell based and the only item we have for APCs to burn health ({{item:3151}} ) isn't worth the gold it costs for such horrible stats.
