To us, the PBE is a premium server where we expect more from our players, and the standards of player behavior can be higher than the live platforms.

I like everything I read except this.

Why shouldn't we hold everyone to the same standards?

I would totally understand, "This is a pilot run and is on PBE for testing, but it will eventually make it to live," but I don't agree with confining higher standards to just the PBE. Raise the standards everywhere.

Thats great to hear I haven't encounter much toxic behavior on the PBE myself but then again I could just be lucky. Is that same system going to go on live soon or is it just PBE only?

So excited to hear this news, this should make beta testing much more pleasant!

Just got out of a game where I watched a person call top, then follow mid around, take his farm, follow mid up to top after mid bailed so he could get farm, clamored after him saying "please come back i need you" and all around caused one of the worst experiences I have had in the PBE. My worst thought is that this guy will get to continue doing this all night and abusing the system until he gets enough reports.

Honestly, it just speaks to the need that there should be a filtering process of some sort. When registrations open, there shouldn't be "anyone who makes an account gets in" because you'll get too many people that go "free content!!" It's a shame, too, because the whole point of this is to help create a better live environment.

I am very glad for the approach by the Riot crew, and I hope the ban hammer swings hard throughout the PBE before registrations ever open again.

Edit: If someone's toxicity is so bad and we have a "zero tolerance" rule against it, then why do they only get a 7 day ban? In a week, they just go back to terrorizing the PBE. That was the perfect time to purge trolls. Swing the hammer mightily or don't swing it at all.

Thanks so much for this. People are so toxic on the pbe seeing how they can get away with anything with little to no cost and can just afk if they feel like it and play on the regular servers.

this is a good idea! maybe in the future a "less harsh" version will be implemented in the live servers. maybe something based on how many times you say a toxic word within a certain time frame? (like saying fk 10 times in 2 games) xD idk, something small as an idea..

as a newer player to the pbe who is genuinely interested in improving the game it is very hard to do so when i cant progress in ranked due to the amount of leavers/toxic players i have had my first 4 games in ranked losses due to a min of 2 leavers on my team or just a team full of trolls. thank you for implementing a new punishment system i hope to see improvements in the pbe in the next coming weeks
