: Tuesday 12/3 PBE Platform + Account Creation Downtime
I think we know where Riot got the "new" hardware for EU. jk lol
: @Riot: You say you want versatility for ADCs in the upcoming season.. (Hurricane buff thread)
I like your idea, a lot actually. I just think 20% crit chance might be a little too much given the power hidden in this items passive.
: Thanks for the updates. I have a question, Yasuo, the new champ, ┬┐Will be avaliable at 3.15? or too at 3.14? Thanks. Written by the dearly {{champion:12}}
not in 3.14. 3.14 is the patch currently on the pbe
: [Item Interactions] Possibly Unintended Behavior with Runaan's Hurricane
: ping
In short, no. Since the servers are based in the US, the only way to decrease your ping (assuming you have broadband internet already) would be to move closer to the server.
: Muted Players
Riot has said that they will not implement this system because it would allow players to affect matchmaking to skew the odds in their favor. Riot has also said that they want the PBE to be as close to the live server as possible, so I don't believe that they would implement your idea only on the PBE.
: Hi guys! Are you still able to repro the issue after the last patch last nite? Thanks!
: A little question about rank
They did not issue any rewards to pbe ranked players at the end of season 2. I believe this will also be true for season 3.
: [BUG] [Red Flask] (AGAIN)
: [Wukong] - W does not create a clone or stealth
I can confirm hat this bug is present in all game modes. It is not limited to the howling abyss.
: I am sorry, but even if a Rioter said it .. it looks plainly stupid in my opinion. Malzahar really can get a kill on a combo ( E+W+Q+R )or if too fed E+Q+Q+E. His ult needs to works faster, first because his E is over time damage and it can't kill a tryndamere/adc/bruiser with Life Steal kind of high, he has no chance. **They never did used a skill at the same time, I never also said it, they take about 0,4s to use the skill after I did hit them and they break the ult.** Why Ezreal can keep ulting without interruption? His ult is a lot more useless when compared to many champions yet he has this perfect protection. Miss Fortune can lose ult while it may not even deal much dmg if bad positioned, but MF and Malzahar in this point are very very different as Malzahar can get his ult broken when he **SHOULD'VE already suppressed** the enemy but the enemy can hit back in the very early ult ( **THAT IS already** hitting the target). //Brand As I said ... it IS hard to reproduce and I don't use video recorders. The easiest way would be a Rioter getting access to my last play videos stored. ( All recent played games are getting corrupted, I don't know why ... reloading doesn't fix. )
"They never did used a skill at the same time, I never also said it, they take about 0,4s to use the skill after I did hit them and they break the ult." This has been explained by riot before. It was the cause of Kassadin's void fart bug and Nidalee's backward's spear bug for a long time. It works like this: the game divides the infinite measurable depth of time and divides it into finite time chunks (or slices if you prefer). If two abilities are activated in the same time chunk, they will both go off even if one would normally make the other ineffective for various reasons. On top of this, abilities do have a cast time (even if no cast bar pops up). The cast time of Malzahar's ult is as close to immediate as the game's coding can be (about or less than 0.1 seconds). Most abilities have a cast time anywhere from ~0.3 to ~0.6 seconds. Therefore if Malzahar casts his ult in the exact same time chunk as an ability from his target, they will both go off but there will appear to be a delay between the two (because of cast time). In other words, when Vayne manages to stop a Malzahar ult on her with condemn its because the game thought that the condemn bolt was already flying through the air when the ult started. To the game, the sequence of events looks roughly like: "chunk1: Malz ult cast, Vayne E cast" "chunk2: Malz ult effect being, Vayne E traveling" "chunk3: Malz ult channeling, Vayne E hits" "chunk4: Malz ult channel cancel, Vayne E knocks Malz away" I agree that it is kind of wonky, but its an issue with how the game's code works. This similar to Ezreal being able to E away at the same time as he is hit by a blitz hook. "Why Ezreal can keep ulting without interruption?" Ezreal's ult is a casted ability like Lux's ult. It is not a channeled ability like Miss Fortune or Malzahar's ults. You can see the difference in the cast bar. With Ez or Lux it fills from left to right. With Malz or MF it drains from right to left.
: Udyr 's special interactions
Its the PBE, thins will be incomplete when released to it. It is a testing environment after all. Go back to live if you want complete things.
: Trolls on PBE
The problem is the trolls have multiple accounts. Ban 1 and they get on another.
: Draven's new passive.
the new passive is a nerf. This is intended.
: Any Riot Please Don't ignore this Please.
: I agree. /bump It would be nice to know why the PBE is down sometimes.
bumps don't work on this site. try up-voting instead
: when latin spanish on PBE
It probably wont be. there are very few users on the PBE as is. It wouldn't be a good idea to split them up.

: [Ghost Bride Morgana - W speel] Huge bug in the spell animation.
This does not qualify as a huge or major bug. Major bugs are bugs that have a real and quantifiable affect on gameplay such as an ability not working properly or a spell animation not appearing at all. A visual-only bug that has no affect on gameplay such as this one is a minor bug.
: They Should Change Aatrox W
As Aatrox is now out on live, please post suggestions on the lie forum.
: But would be amazing we can try the skins we want to :(
The PBE is not about getting what you want, its about testing what needs to be tested. Take Annie's visual update as an example: Riot unlocked the Franken-Tibbers skin because they needed to test it.
: I can't enter the game.
A. bumping doesn't work on these forums. B. Maintenance
: Serious question;
When Riot needs more testers, they'll announce a couple weeks in advance. Until then, no one knows. http://community.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/f/2EAF660193FA3B668D7234B3AEBB530C5AB7F651/d/A6C28D2F095DB73F105D1B3CD30386864E6D77FF Though I suspect that if people keep begging, they'll remain closed for longer. I also suspect that if you keep begging for someone to give you an account, you'll be banned from the PBE.

: but on the other hand i need to make a NA account only to post this, as rioteers only visit those forums btw the link doesnt work ; error 500
the dev tracker from EUW shows that riot is very active on the EU forums: http://euw.leagueoflegends.com/board/devtracker.php?g=Riot you have to copy the whole link. click and rag your cursor to the line below.
: [START-SCREEN] Can't login because server is unavailable
: Giving up from Pbe
Account sharing is against the rules afaik. This includes giving accounts to other people.
: Is this a bug?
probably not a bug. if you recall, the pbe went between the allsar and the freljord patches a couple times. This is likely a side effect from it.
: the lack of (AP)spellvamp itemisation+ suggestion
You are correct, this should not be posted on the PBE forums.

: [Suggestion] Voice Chat
Riot has said that they wont do voice chat. Also, post suggestions about stuff that isn't in testing on live forums.
: [Suggestion] After posting a new discussion, we can only edit the Body
I agree, everyone who likes this idea, upvote op so that Riot sees this!!
: True the only reason I would think that it would help is because typically those who spend $$ mind their P's and Q's because now their hard earned money is on the line but I do see where you are coming from.
In response to your edit: Those players that do not actively test, but are not toxic, play the crucial roll of filling in game slots for matchmaking. Without them, queues would be much longer than they are now.
: Thank you for the reply it reassured me about my post :) Also I'm wondering if it's ok to double post. As in on the PBE forum here and on the PBE forum on the live site. Probably not but when I was scrolling through the PBE on the live site it didn't look like the forum posts were very relevant to the PBE server EDIT: I reread it and I don't think I made myself clear; I mean like posting a topic in this forum and the same topic in the live forum
I have not heard anything for or against double posting. That being said, the general practice is to edit your previous post over double posting.
: Sorry if I was mistaken. Thing is, why would I post there when what I am talking about is currently not live and is only patched on PBE at the time of writing. If Machete is available there on 3.8 but live is 3.7, then that means it is in testing on the PBE. I believe that following that logic, it makes sense to put it here. It isn't relevant to live yet, so why put it there?
The majority of your post concerns live balance issues.
: Oh ok thank you! so just so I am clear I should post about Morgana in the regular forum under PBE?
You've posted on the correct forums with regard to Morgana's skin. This forum and the PBE section on the live forum overlap topics as this forum is still in beta.
: skins
Is free RP and IP every week not enough?
: Seraph's active gives stacks to Manamune
I believe this is intended as the Mana Charge passive is also proc'd by mana expenditures. Not just ability activations.
: It's because toxic players literally have 20 accounts. When one is banned, they just go to the other, and some time ago, the sign-ups were every month, so they could just make another 20 accounts again. Furthermore; it takes some time to ban someone: Riot bans all the people on PBE personally. And because they have 1 bad day shouldn't mean they are perma-banned, so it takes some reports to actually ban someone. You can also do it differently: this is how I avoid many toxic guys and stuff. Go to the Public Chat often. After some time, you will start to recognize some players that come there often and who are not toxic. Some of them want to play with you, and there you go; at least one toxic player gone ^^ But yeah, I think that if Riot'd want to do it perfectly, they actually should shut down the whole PBE and choose ~500 players that are actually testing, reporting bugs and stuff and release them on all the awesome stuff. It's fair and it's better for everyone; actual testers often can't test because people who just want to try new stuff instalock everything or there is a queue for literally 7 hours because suddenly everyone wants to go to the PBE beta for the new stuff
Non-tester players that are also not toxic serve the crucial roll of filling out game slots. If only 500ish people were allowed to have PBE accounts at one time then the queue would take hours, if not days.
: [Suggestion] I need a little bit of navigation help
The "[3.8] New Content and Features on the PBE!" topic that is sticky'd to the top of the forums is a rough guide to the content that is currently in testing. http://community.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/f/2EAF660193FA3B668D7234B3AEBB530C5AB7F651/d/Vry9W9hr That being said, new patches have a tendency to break things that no one expects because of the back-end coding that goes into them. An example of this was the recent bug with charged or ammo abilities like Teemo's mushrooms. So Riot encourages PBE testers to try a wide variety of things. To the best of my knowledge; the new Morgana skin is supposed to have a ghostly glow. The geen ring you are seeing is likely either a team-color indicator or the ectoplamic-esq color at the edge of her W. Morgana has always been fairly small compared to other humanoid champions,
: Just an idea I have about the normal server and pbe
I like the idea of PBE and live accounts being linked, though this may be a little hard to do in the given environment. As per your second idea: Riot has said that they will never offer any sort of bonuses beyond aesthetics to players who pay for content. I believe that this extends to PBE access. It would also unjustly exclude those who live on limited financial means.
: What do you mean with this? Usually, the url bar of an internet browser is only 1 line and can only wrap to that line.
The url below is a copy of the 2nd url from the OP: http://community.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/f/2EAF660193FA3B668D7234B3AEBB530C5AB7F651/d/E9E037D61FE5C2040F6C3C0480F07168F3059118 See how it is visually cut off?
: A Wall of Text about Twisted Treeline!
As this is not something currently being tested on the PBE, it would be better posted on the live forums: Quote from vLemon: "Hey guys, the PBE community site is meant for feedback and bug reports for the features that are on PBE only and ofc for the site itself.

: Since Tristana has a dash instead of a blink like ass and ez, i'm not completely sure it's the same for her, but never tried so i can't comment on it :)
Trist can get grabbed mid-air as well as knocked up.
: Server Instability, Maintenance, Matchmaking Queue. Is nobody on the forums?
Two weeks ago Aatrox was first added to the PBE. Naturally, people gravitated towards the new content. Now it appears that the novelty has worn off for most and only the most dedicated tests are left. Couple that with this patch cycle becoming more stable every day, and the result is fewer active players on the PBE and its forums.
