@logandune No problem, also what OMG said is right, you really need to just keep checking back here every so often, a good benchmark would be every 2 days.

After signing up for a PBE account a month ago, I tried signing in today. It turns out that my account does not exist. Do you have to renew your account on the PBE every month?

So League of Legends has like 30 Million Players + (or so what I've heard)
How is Riot not prepared for all this? lol...

What is really frustrating about The sign ups being closed is that the sign ups are only closed becuase people are taking advantage of the free IP + RP. I can Guarantee that there are many others out there that feel the same way as me. I would love to be apart of the PBE just so I can test things before they're released and give feedback and bug reports... but because the server is being hogged by boobs and trolls! me and many other players miss out and i know there is no way to fix it but its really pissy

Two part response time.

@jleester if I am not mistaken if your account is inactive for so long I think they delete it and free up that summoner name.

@Zarlakk while I agree that it is messed up that the pbe server is flooded with people that are just taking advantage of it, it still gives those on it the chance to test for bugs that might only show up under certain circumstances, such as the Viktor/Annie bug, with so many players on there was more then ample opportunity for that bug to pop up if it wasn't for the overwhelmingly large population on both the pbe and live servers that bug might have gone on unnoticed much longer.

We're not sure when we will turn the signups back on. We need to do a more efficient job of screening our applicants and need to put processes in place that preserves the experience for people who are trying to report bugs and give productive feedback- and not just try out 'free' content early.

I appreciate your interest in wanting to contribute to PBE- while our invitation process is still being ironed out (so nothing is finalized)- I'm going to push to have people who have actively been reporting reproducable bugs in our 'bugs forum' to get preference.

One of the main goals of PBE was to spot bugs before they go out to live- it makes sense that players who are already reporting bugs on live would be welcome additions. The goal is not to simply provide players with a 'playable preview' of upcoming changes or champions.


Reposting Kades' post here (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=32390294#post32390294) for future reference. PBE might turn into an invite-only deal and opening of the signups is not guaranteed.

That being said, do check up here for updates if you really want to sign up. Who knows, they might reopen at the beginning of January and if you want to join PBE don't miss this thread.
