: I think faction affinity would be a cool featured gamemode too. team votes for a faction and then you can only pick from that faction. It should make for some cool team comps. {{champion:86}} {{champion:3}} VS {{champion:36}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:412}} {{champion:120}} VS {{champion:21}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:34}} {{champion:22}} VS{{champion:38}} {{champion:161}}
Lol that reminds me of custom games people used to make back in S2/S3 of "All Noxus VS All Demacia" or "All -faction- VS All -faction-" and people had a list of where each champ hailed from so we knew who to pick. This would be neat if it was actually implemented.
: Yeah I have seen several other people talking about being banned for either 1 or 2 weeks, guess they changed it a while back :[
{{sticker:zombie-brand-facepalm}}
: PBE still does have it's clean times. After a few weeks of getting rid of toxic people after a new wave, PBE will be back to it's cleanish state again.
Yeah I mean it isn't horrible. It's been worse, actually. Just hasn't/probably won't get to how it used to be lol.
: I don't really think that the majority is here for the free stuff. Those are just the loudest in the masses. I have met almost exclusivly nice people here, even right after they added new content and new testers. Aditionally, whoever wants to test something out, just add me ingame, most of the time i'm glad to help.
True. I guess from what I've seen it seems most people treat this server primarily as an ordinary server rather than a server meant for testing more than not. Same - I'm up for testing stuff as well/etc etc.

What I don't get is why it's so difficult to play in BLIND PICK Normal games, where banning isn't an option. I'm not talking about custom games. The problem with blind pick is the amount of trolls. You end up with 3 people saying " TOP " and then fighting ensues, and you end up with 2 top, 2 mid and an ADC. Again, this doesn't help enforce any type of meta, or get any feel for how a champ should do in a lane. My last game if you want to check up on WAS a blind pick. What happened? I called top, I got top, but then another person just auto locks at 20 seconds and says top as well. So now it's 2 top, we have no jung and the game just goes downhill from there with constant arguing (I just mute people usually). Riot can't stop toxicity, but at least in draft you have a more civilized picking order (in theory) which generally works as long as the important champs aren't banned, I'm not bitching for the sake of it, just giving Riots idea on how to better the PBE if they actually want positive data in a timely fashion. It's better than people just playing against Illaio once, getting blown up in lane, now they just assume she's completely OP and bans her every game. How is that helpful for you as a player, or Riot as a company.
Thank you, for elaborating. And I agree, blind pick is just that - blind - and has no guarantee of anyone getting who and what they want. For the time being, though, that's your best option in terms of not having new champs banned. The issue with drafts is it relies on pick order, and someone might grab what and who you want provided they have a pick before you do. While I'm not 100% for the idea of getting rid of the banning system towards new champs, I'm rooting in your direction for opening up the ability to test new champs without the conflict of preventable play. How often do you play with friends, btw? That's your other option to getting who/what you want in Blind Picks lol.
: You completely miss the point of his post. The point is that it shouldnt be so hard to get a real feel of the new champs and champ updates on the PBE. They are constantly banned in norms, making it difficult to play with or against the champs. Testing out the new stuff is our JOB as users of the PBE. We are trusted to test and find any bugs with new stuff, and we cant do that if the champ is CONSTANTLY banned. Sure you could test some things in customs, but not only isn't enough, PBE has a common issue of now allowing Customs without X amount of players if the servers are relatively full.
No, I get the point, talking about ranked/draft pick. What I don't get is why it's so difficult to play in BLIND PICK Normal games, where banning isn't an option. I'm not talking about custom games.

If someone doesn't feel like playing against a champ then they're in the right to use League's banning system to ban who they wish. You shouldn't feel obligated or feel the need to test champs in ranked games or norm drafts since the only difference between those and norms/customs is the mode. It should be expected that new champs will be a guaranteed ban for 1). them being 'op' or 'unbalanced,' and 2). people not wanting people who don't know how to play them yet playing them. I agree with you on the fact that majority of people don't play on PBE to test stuff, or they don't test as much as they should/could. That's been established enough times already on the forums. Maybe I'm missing something, but just test champs in norms/customs. > > {{sticker:zombie-brand-clap}} Well the other point of the PBE is to test a "live environment". You want to mimic a real game as close as possible, otherwise the PBE WOULD just be custom games for the players to screw around and test. Also I tried to do a custom game with the new champ and the game would never start, just froze. Not sure if that's because it doesn't let you, or if since the champ was new and the PBE was being overloaded that it was just crashing. But yea, hard to really get a feel for a champ when the computer is completely predictable "Oh I have 25% health, going back to base, not gonna try to do an out play". I can go 40-0 with Yasuo in customs, does that mean I know how to play him? Hells no. To me it seems damn OP, but in a real environment I can get my ass kicked by a Ziggs or a Swain mid.....and it immediately changes my thoughts on the champ and how he compares to other competent players.
: Banning new champs, or champs with significant changes shouldn't be possible on PBE

: Did you used the fire or ice symbol?
This might be the cause. Did they look like this? http://i63.tinypic.com/28vdjrq.png
: Nasus Stacks on Illaoi Tentacles
Same thing with Gangplank Q. Might even be the case with Nunu Q, Cho'Gath R, or any other champ that has single-target skills that are able to target minions too.
: Caitlyn infinite ghost- Co-op vs AI
Did you post on the regular server's boards? OT: You should probably play a few more games to test the bug's consistency.
: Illaoi Feedback Thread
Gangplank should be able to Q her tentacles.
: Mhmm, interesting. I've always thought on these test enviroments that there are only those guys that are mega-hyped for testing, acting like some kind of laboratory nerds. But what you're saying, it basically means:"Never give up. Stand and fight." , right?{{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
I suppose. Lol. PBE wasn't always like this, though. S1 and S2 were the clean days.
: Why do Pbe hate me so much?
You can't stop people from reporting you for being afk, regardless of what happened. Even if you come back into the game, players still justify the report depending on how long you were 'afk' and how much it affected the game. Maybe you can send an appeal or something, idk.
: The ammount of toxicity is terrifying
No, it's not going to stop. Idk if you've thought of this or if you've noticed, but the majority of people play on the PBE because they get free stuff (skins/icons etc), not for the purpose of testing. In terms of stopping toxicity - the only thing you can do is report them and move on. Worst thing you can do is let the toxic people get in your way of your testing. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: Her Q damage is the direct damage of the tentacles, as already been said. You see that in the tooltip of her E. When you upgrade your Q you see a change in her E's tooltip. So it might be useful to max your Q first as it increases the tentacles dmg of every skill. I thought a bit about that skill and it seems logic to me as her Q is nothing more than a tentacle hit :D
Makes sense lol. Guess I overlooked her E a bit. Thanks for clearing that up
: Actually, I think you may have misunderstood how the ability functions. If Illaoi and her allies kill your **spirit**, or you move too far away and break the tether to your **spirit**, you become a **Vessal** for one minute, or until you've destroyed three tentacles. While you're a **Vessal**, Tentacles will spawn near you every 10 seconds, and existing tentacles will attack you on their own. If there isn't a **spirit** or **vessal** nearby, the tentacles won't attack unless Illaoi is there to order them to do so with her W.
And I think the tentacles spawn near you despite the enemy Illaoi not being anywhere near you so you have the opportunity to rid of the debuff by killing 3 tentacles. Or at least I'm sure that's part of the intended reason - the other reason being for them to kill you.
: Dragon Trainer Tristana Feedback
I think it's 'legendary worthy' because it upped her skin animation game. All her other skins use actual rockets rather than a separate living thing. Not to mention there's a 6min video dedicated solely to her VO with this new skin. Animation and the concept of her having a live dragon as her 'rocket' are probably the 2 main things.
: I tried hopping over a wall in Twisted Treeline and it worked just fine. The Tentacles damage is visuallized as passive in a skill I thought, but haven't checked (W or E, I thought) Really like the visible range idea though, can make it so you actually avoid walls until you reach a certain place. Although the current range is massive so you cannot dodge the walls I believe.
Oh okay. Maybe it's just some walls with her W, then. And yeah with her passive I tend to find myself placing tentacles in places they have no use in
: Illaoi tentacles are really hard to click on
I find no problem in clicking them. Be sure you're clicking at their base (near their hp bar).

: Why do people bother pushing?
No need to repost the same thread.
: Why do people bother pushing?
For some people, PBE is their live server - only server they know of/play on, in which case they treat it as such rather than playing on it to test stuff. Some people might just want an easy game after having a lot of bad games, maybe. Who knows {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: Is there any reason Runes aren't 1 IP like everything else?
Like DeCae said - there's not much to test in runes. Not to mention they've been around for a really long time without a lot of major changes to them unlike skins/champs/modes, etc.
: Can't keep practicing flashes with that cooldown :(
You can if you have the patience :P. While your flash is on cd you can get a sightstone/use your trinket and test warding over walls/work on mechanics. Etc. ...or Google.

: The amount of harassment in a test environment is awful
You can't stop toxicity in games. Just report them and see to it that Riot takes notice and deals with it accordingly. There's been several accounts (and continues to be several accounts) of toxic players, so you're not alone. But I do agree with you. Season 1 and Season 2 PBE weren't like this in terms of toxic level.

As Bubb said, grinding is the only way. There's no way to get RP unless for some reason they decide to give some out.{{sticker:slayer-pantheon-popcorn}}
: Riot, Please change the new frame. too ugly
I don't think they look bad. If anything I'd suggest changing the look of the mastery banner flag thing since it covers part of the border. Sort of gets in the way of the border's design. So do the badges, but they aren't as big and you can have up to 4, being symmetrical around the border. Let me get back on topic: what do you mean by them being flat?
: Why was the new draft mode temporary?
They're probably satisfied with what feedback they got (there's loads of threads if you look). Plus the blue notification diamond thing with the exclamation point in the middle says "Thanks for your help beta testing the new Normal Draft Champion Select!"

: New Chat Info Mouseover !
The Pantheon penta was easy. OT: Yeah that'd be cool. A 'why not?' kind of deal.
: Thoughts on the HUD Change
I don't mind it too much other than obvious (and relatively minor) adjustments to proportions i.e. I had to reduce my HUD size because the shop window is huge. The animations for skill levelups when you level is cool. It just takes some getting used to where your summoner spells are displayed, gold, items, time, etc. There should be presets available though which someone said somewhere.
: To get the Sona icons to show up if you bought the skin early is to just return it in the store and rebuy it. You'll see the icons afterwards, that's what I had to do. Riot said they would fix the bug but I guess not?
Oh. Good to know! EDIT* Nvm it doesn't show up in my purchase history. QQ.
: No Summoner Icon Updates?
Regarding the DJ Sona icons - my theory is if you buy a new skin right as it's released, maybe before its banner art thing has been set in, you won't get the icons or the banner. So if you want the perks with buying the skin, I guess wait a few days until you purchase it. Idk about the new icons though. I haven't seen anyone else in-game with them so I suppose it's not an accident that they aren't showing up.
: [bug] boots of mobility
Yeah it's been throwing people off - myself included. The descr. still says the buff is inactive while in combat right? People I know were getting excited that Rito made it to where being in combat with minions doesn't remove the speed buff, when it does. It just isn't showing up. Sneaky Rito.
