Greetings summoners,

For the next week and a half, we’re undertaking an experiment pushing our internal company playtest build out to the community. Players who participate will have a chance to test potential upcoming changes and give us their feedback on how well they work. New development builds will arrive every day, and there will be bugs in need of fixing. We’re looking for great, solid feedback from our playtesters so that we can wipe out the bugs before release. Good response from the community means that we can continue to provide this opportunity. If you think you have what it takes, sign up today!

You can find the sign-up form here: https://pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/index

The client can be found here: http://pbe.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/download

Important: Once you are properly set up, make sure to visit your regions PBE sub-forums.

You will be updated with the latest changes to test and can post any bugs you have encountered.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Am I a good fit for PBE?
PBE is not a place for serious competition or a place to try out new champions. It is a test environment where our players can help report bugs and give us feedback on changes we are implementing before it goes on the regular servers. We are looking for patient players with strong attention to detail to help us out.

Why I am getting an error when trying to sign up?
The error on the sign-up page can stem from a few things. The most common reason for the error is that the username is taken. Additionally, you must format your birthday in a DD-MM-YYYY format. Make sure you meet all the requirements for the fields before you click submit.

I do not have any IP/RP on my account, what should I do?
For players who have just signed up for PBE, it may take up to an hour before you receive a handful of points. We limit the number of IP and RP granted in order to make sure that everyone tests all parts of the game, including the store. Players receive stipends of RP and IP by remaining active on PBE.

I found a bug, how do I report it?
First, look at your region’s PBE sub-forum to see if anyone else has reported a similar bug. If so, please try to add to it, including a description of what happened and reproduction steps. If you are unable to find an existing post regarding the bug you have found, please refer to this thread on how to start your own: http://eune.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=376823

Where can I chat with my fellow testers?
Come hang out in Public Chat 1 and share what you found with other players on PBE. Generally, you will find a few Rioters around as well who are happy to receive your feedback, answer your questions, and occasionally play a game with a few people in the channel.

Just high-lighted some of the things so it could draw more attention.

Tired of players posting that PBE is dead, thanks for mentioning the chat. Now we'll get to make games faster :3.

So...this is a thread saying that the PBE is going to be updated more frequently for the next couple days. And yet the body is about what the PBE is(and has always been).

I'm not sure I understand what you're going for here Udyr.
