Will the map only be in Custom or will you release it in actual PvP mode or Coop v Ai? btw the map is awesome

I'd love to try this map with people...if they didn't ban me the instant I joined, for no apparent reason.

This is like trying to find out what DoTA is through the WarCraft3 custom game list all over again.

I would like to ask something, will there be any improvements on the map? like a background, it seems to feel like its empty

Have any changes been made from the version on the PBE? I know there were a handful of bugs and moderate design concerns that I was hoping to see addressed for the main release.

I've been playing PG frequently on the PBE, and I am absolutely addicted. I can't wait to play on the main servers when I get home tonight! For what it's worth, I would like to put a vote in to add normal matchmaking, as I really hate not gaining IP in custom games, and I am certain I will be playing enough PG to get to that point

I'd love matchmaking for this. Not too fond of the custom games and such. I have played on PBE and personally loved it, though.

A good way to gear Barrier towards melee champions specifically would be to make it stronger for them than ranged heroes.

My team set out to make the Proving Grounds, our basic tutorial map, playable as full on 5v5. This is something I’ve wanted to do ever since I originally worked on the map, and with the help of some other devs (and a good bit of caffeine) we managed to get everything up and running. Everyone was pretty happy with how the effort turned out, and with the upcoming removal of Winter Summoner’s Rift we saw an opportunity to sneak the new map out by repurposing the same UI hooks.

We've been testing the Proving Grounds for a week or so on the PBE, and now I'm pleased to announce that it is also playable as a custom game on the live servers. While we’ve been playtesting it internally as All Random (and lovin’ it) for quite some time now, all the pick options will be available – Blind Pick, Draft, and All Random – because we’re excited to see what variation you enjoy the most. We’d love to hear any feedback that you may have, as both RiotNome and myself will be providing support post release. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Fellow Rioters who helped me sneak this out:

Drevarius
