: Just because you realize that ranked on PBE has no competitive merit, doesn't mean all players share that. There are heavy connotative differences between a draft game and a ranked game and the associations for a ranked game hurt testing. For testing, you want to try everything far and wide, find the most unexpected of interactions between systems to break them, but ranked carries the idea that you have to go for the best possible option you can, rather than these unique ideas. And again, just because people like you and may don't share the competitive view on ranked for PBE, you can't reasonably say that for the average person. You can't say that some newer people won't feel wrong for testing something unique when a toxic player flames them for losing, because ranked is meant to be competitive. Now for the other comment you replied to where I mentioned queue times would be longer.. > [{quoted}](name=Yiren,realm=PBE,application-id=AYQh7p7O,discussion-id=64Pt0rQy,comment-id=0003000000000000,timestamp=2019-06-10T18:40:49.413+0000) > > Yes, it will increase queue time but the player will have two choices, an AFK match or a LP match. How are those associated? Nothing says that a PBE ranked game will be less likely to have AFKs than a PBE draft game. Or are you trying to say something else? If you mean that people are less likely to leave because they would have repercussions for their rank, that goes against you saying it doesn't have any merit. And if the rank holds merit, that naturally breeds a competitive nature. AFKs are inevitable because there are people that don't value their PBE account like their main account, and they're also assholes. You mentioned some people AFK just to get their daily RP, how would that be any different on ranked? Ranked simply won't fix AFKs, and multiple queues just aren't feasible with the size of the playerbase. Besides, who says the AFKers would stick to Draft if there was multiple queues? It is a simple fact, people **will** believe a rank holds merit despite the fact PBE isn't a competitive environment. I know far too many people that play PBE ranked to "curbstomp" their way to Challenger. Even though you have the right idea, other people don't. Sure, PBE ranked *could* bring more people, but are the majority of those the people that actually help the PBE or are they there to boast their own ego? There are an endless amount of connotations that ranked brings which create a negative experience on the PBE. Some people expect it to be competitive which only brings up complaints when they are being matched with drastically different ranks, since matchmaking is essentially removed for the PBE since it isn't actually competitive. And there are more things like this which you can't rule out even though you understand better, as this has to go for the majority of the community.
Of course it doesn't mean all players share that especially the new ones, but when you say PBE: Public Beta Environment, it mean testing, so players who join PBE are going to test but what about the players who are already on the pbe? What I'm suggesting is bring back Ranked or Flex or CREATE SOMETHING NEW, something different, you can call it whatever you want. Here, we are for "Feature Feedback, suggestions... NEWS CREATION... ETC" FOR PBE OF COURSE, the reason I did post this.. do you think people who was playing league of legends in 2011+12+.. they are not hungry for something new? for something different? the reason RIOT created "Nexus Blitz, Dominion... every 3/2 months a new champion, new skins etc, so the player can enjoy the game, we are here to develop something new on pbe match making, the platform, something new on pbe that can bring back the motivation while testing and playing, since outside of pbe is a competition, Im suggesting that we bring something for pbe that is a MIX of having fun, testing, making new friends and less boring, we are looking for a balance between fun and testing, ( If you're not having fun it's not worth doing. "Tommy Bolin") I hope you get the big picture and everyone who are against ranked, they can call it X-name match making that can create fun, testing and friends. The player don't want to test in a mod draft game with an afk's. Some players don't want ranked in PBE. The player don't want negative attitude while playing with other players. The player want to have fun, The player want to have some motivation, The player want to have friends, The player want to test, We are here to make players happy, So we can call it the *X-future game mod in PBE that can create all those features* Thank you! :)
: That will only increase queue times by needlessly splitting the community.
Yes, it will increase queue time but the player will have two choices, an AFK match or a LP match.
: Removing ranked on the pbe was the best decision they have made! People who completely arent interested in testing, were coming, spamming games over and over on low elo stomp champs like Master Yi, just to get to "challenger". These one tricks were extremely toxic and getting to challenger didnt remove them from average elo matchmaking , because on the pbe challengers get matched against silvers. If you need some sort of motivation to win on pbe, try to keep your winrate above 50%, but please dont bring back the toxic cancer, that ranked created.
First of all, ranked doesn't create toxic cancer or whatever you want to call it, because when the player realize that it is just a game where you can have fun, win, chill, the player will not act childish, this is what make the difference between a challenger and a bronze, a toxic player will never make it to challenger :), second: Ranked on pbe is not competitive, please, before commenting, I've already talked about that, third thing, a one trick Yi or one trick Yasuo or one trick "champion" are not all toxic, just because he is playing Yi doesn't mean he is toxic or he is good, those negative thoughs have a big impact on a player! :)

: is this problem happening to everyone? its been happening to me on and off since i first got my account but I was also unable to write a ticket because it wouldnt allow me to.
Yes, to everyone...
: [Client and Queue] Stuck in queue no matter if i restart the client.
Okey, here the solution: 1 close the client, wait 20 minutes, if you still stuck, close the client again and wait 20 minutes, after: open the client: if you still stuck, close the client and throw your computer from the window, buy new one, install league and open your client, if you still stuck, call 911, ask for help. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

Hi, we are having the same problem, it get stuck in queue... We are waiting for Riot to fix it.. it gonna take 24h to 48h to maybe a week who knows lol
: Yiren, if this works, i'm gonna love you forever
No, it not working anymore.... Sorry :( I'm just waiting for the next fix.. I hope they fix it soon..
: queue crashing after maintenance
I'm still having the same problem since yesterday... I hope they can fix it..
: I sit in queue for 20 minutes and it kicks me, idk if this is what ur having but it's only ranked queue for me, urf is fine.
Yes Urf is fine, it happens only when you queue up for ranked... Idk why
: having similar issues. won't let me look for a game. Have tried several full repairs as well as Skandeez "fix" below, which honestly just made it worse. can't even create a lobby to begin with now lol
Just change the game language from english to another english, you will find 3 english, choose one and taraaa problem fixed, mine is fixed by this. lol
: Start Queue then it just gets stuck, even if I relog
Yes, the client wont responding, just stuck on queue... just close the client, change the game language from english to another english, because in pbe you have 3 english, choose another one and it will work fine for x-time, everytime happens, do the same thing, sorry about my english
: im having the same problem, did u find a fix ? edit: I found a way around this. change game mode to custom and try to join someone. Its gonna kick you out with an error and after that you can queue up for URF and start a game. After the game ends the bug should be gone
Every time happens, I do change the game language... you gonna find 3 english, so switch btw them when it happens...
