many players in my recent games have ragequit mid game, and the rest of the players, either enemy or ally, said "whatever man, it's just PBE"

WHY do they think that is acceptable? don't we want a good testing environment filled with dedicated players?

Report them because they can be banned from PBE and since sign ups are closed, they're screwed.

For the most part, the PBE is for finding bugs and testing content for feedback, while I understand it can be annoying to have a leaver, it is most likely not a high priority to ban PBE accounts. Although I can say from personal experience that leavers on my team are just as likely as leavers on their team.

Actually, banning PBE accounts was mentioned to be a fairly large issue. For a while, the server was nearly empty until the patch came around, then suddenly it was filled with people who'd dodge if they didn't get the right champ, log into another account, then try again. The limit on when you can apply for an account shut that down fairly well, but the banning was required for this to work. Riot's stated that they are MUCH more strict on the PBE than they are on the live servers simply because there's absolutely nothing lost by just kicking them out. It's not like on the Live, where these people are playing the game they love, and have a chance to reform. On the PBE, they are either testing something/playing normally to encounter bugs/looking at the new stuff, or they aren't.

Its getting really annoying. 3 games in a row now and some for stupid reasons. For example last game our elise dodged claiming we're all trolls since none of us jungled.

Reported all the leavers - really hoping they get banned ):

Sometimes it feels like everyone who got banned on Live made an account on PBE.

Just Report the people that "troll",Feed,"leave" and yes Reporting on pbe works.. Don't listen to the trolls when they say "H4H4H4H4H4H4 REPORT ON PBE?N0B? REPORT ON PBE NO WORK!" which is not true
