The queue times for the PBE are pretty horrible. I was just waiting in normal solo queue for 40 minutes. Eventually, I joined public chat and found a few people to play with. It's a little hard to test when there's only what seems like 20 people playing on it at a time.

Maybe Riot could offer some sort of incentive for people's normal accounts if they help test the PBE. Aspecial skin, an IP boost, RP, IP, something not too huge but enough to get people to play. Or maybe you guys could advertise it a bit more.

It's because the PBE community is so small. It's easier to do a custom game. There's no point in worrying about your record on the PBE for it to be recorded in queue.

You have to figure you wait some where between 1:20 in normal draft pick queue on the live server with hundreds, if not thousands, of people logged on. The PBE server at most has a couple hundred.

I generally only see twenty or less people on at one time. Maybe more on the weekend.
