Hello, I just wanted to give you guys a quick way to download the PBE and to get started.
-Starting from the email-

1.) Click the link that says [CLICK HERE]

2.) Then continue to create you account. Remember this uses the international date system so month and day are switched. (The page looks like the normal signup page.)

3.) Now you should download the LOLPBE.zip file.

4.) Once you have done that extract it to your desktop (or whatever folder you wish to have it in)

5.) Now open of the folder and run one of the two launchers and wait. It will take a while for your patcher to patch everything so don't worry if it is taking a long time.

6.) Once it has finished installing you may wonder why the server is offline this is because the beta won't be open all the time.

7.) Once you actually are able to get into the server you will be asked to chose your Summoner Name and Logo.

8.) After you have done that if you don't have any IP or RP and you aren't level 30 just log out and log back in.

9.) Enjoy!

Thanks,
Wasps

if you cant figure this out your not really supposed to play this game imo, go outside where you belong.

I click on one of the .exe's and it asks to run. I say yes, nothing happens.
Is it supposed to be like that?

if you followed the steps above you should get the League patcher to start patching your PBE game client.

Are you maybe running a other (like the normal US) instance of league of legends?

No, i've checked my processes and nothing is there. I've extracted all of the extraxt files to a folder on my dektop, so they should all be there. I use the lol.launcher.admin.exe file and all that pops up is a prompt asking me to allow the program to run. Then nothing happens.

Did that one too. Nothing happened. Should I re-extract a new batch?

Why do you have all of the files at the same level? You really should keep the integrity of the files you downloaded. What I'm getting is,m in the LoL Public Beta folder, is the RADS folder, and then the 2 .exe's.
