: you can't upgrade any champion on board with this. It doesn't matter how many lvl 1s you have on board. Though its an exploit, its a pretty useless exploit which will never net you a win. even if you get a level 5 unit later on, you cant move it. your board becomes kinda frozen, and your ability to make any strategical play becomes impossible. I tried to make it work, never once did it helped me.
After further experimentation of this exploit I have discovered more: It is possible to upgrade units, and continue gathering more units for synergies with this exploit. I am not going to reveal how this is possible - because the game is already live with this exploit in; distributing ways to enhance this method is not my intention. However, Riot needs to fix this as soon as possible, because it IS possible to upgrade units to tier 3, and continue to buy units; however, I will not discuss how until the exploit is fixed.
: ya you can have 3 plus units on the board but it would be at the cost of never being able to pull a unit from your bench or it will automatically snap one back into it. Also you would have low level units that you cant upgrade or your bench would open up a slot and then the extra board units would snap into it.
I haven't analysed the different types of strategies involved in this, but, that doesn't mean it should remain in the game. It is possible players could start theory crafting, and come up with strategies to circumvent this limitation that you suggest. If everyone knew from the start that every carousel gives you guaranteed 1 extra unit for a free synergy; players would begin building early/mid-game comps, so later on they could get free units, and receiving synergies that wouldn't otherwise be possible. Even worse, late-game could mean picking up a tier 5 unit (Yasuo/Swain/Kayle) from the carousel, and placing them on the board for free - which would be pretty game breaking, since those units are rare to be upgraded, and gives your team a unit for no cost. Imagine Kayle being put on the board over the unit cap, allowing you to get another unit for synergy - which wouldn't be possible normally. This should be fixed regardless whether it is a perceived advantage or not; as there will be players who make it a much larger advantage than is initially presented

LIFE IS good no ? :D I think you meant 1.9 million, but yes. My advice is waiting until server maintenance, which should be a few hours from now.
: Actual queue position?
> [{quoted}](name=PBEXt,realm=PBE,application-id=AYQh7p7O,discussion-id=lJkKGPEW,comment-id=,timestamp=2019-06-21T15:04:31.867+0000) > > How do i see my actual queue position? > i saw a post yesterday about this somewhere but i can't find it anymore... > > (not sure where i'm supposed to post this tbh) Each minute in the queue is 2000 players. Each minute takes 15 minutes in real time. Convert the number of hours into minutes, then multiply that number by 2000, you get your position in the queue. If you were to queue right now, the wait time is 15 hours. 15 hours converted into minutes is 900. 900 x 2000 = 1.8 million players in the queue. You would apply that formula to find your position in the queue. E.g. if you had a 2 hour wait, it would be: 2 x 60 = 120 minutes. 120 * 2000 = 240,000. Hope that helps
: Can Riot please say something?

You guys from the RIOT team are the magicians. So could you please fill the rest of us muggles in? > I would highly appreciate that. So that i just know that i dont even need to try that for the next week until it hits the life servers. > No flame, just asking for some transparency. Thank you, this shows how great your work is, keep it up! > > Greetings =) In Riot's defence, there is no simple solution, so let me give you some statistics: 1 minute in the queue is equivalent to roughly 2000 players - which is around 15 minutes of waiting. If the queue says 12 hours wait time, and each minute represents 2000 players, that translates to: - 720 minutes by 15 minutes each minute, is 10,800 hours before you get in, assuming no one leaves the queue, and the servers don't go down. - Alternatively, since there are 720 minutes to wait, and each minute represents 2000 players, that's a whopping 1.4 million players attempting to login to one PBE server. Now I want to ask you: if you had 1.4m players logging in to a single server, what would you do? Upgrading the server wouldn't allow over a million players to join the game; you would have to introduce multiple servers - which isn't feasible in this game. So, I ask again: What can you reasonably expect Riot to do when over a million players are logging in to a single PBE server?
