Oh bravo sir. Instead of isolating that issue to your so called friends you instead label an entire nation as racist! You're right, your friends are such horrible people, how dare they. The hypocrisy is strong with this one.


Can you honestly say that you have never seen a racist Australian? I'm not talking about JUST my friends. I have a vietnamese girlfriend and only two days ago she was harassed by a bunch of 30 year old men telling her to go back to her own country... I have a aboriginal friend that is constantly told she is the "wrong" colour and she should kill herself for not being white. I have another aboriginal friend who nearly did kill himself because of all the hate he got at school, he had no friends because his parents had the money to send him to a private school.

Tony Abbott (potential prime minister) doesn't even want to let the asylum seekers into our f*cking country! We have plenty of space and we have plenty of potential jobs that out current population aren't doing!

This is neither the place, nor the time for this sir so I'll leave you with one final reply. We have not the space, nor the infrastructure to support more people. These are people that are bypassing countries that would willingly take them in order to come to Australia because we won't send them back when wartime is over in their respective countries. Take your socialist bull**** elsewhere.

Australia aside, there is one practical way to deal with this. Delete offending accounts. No real money is invested in them and you get everything for free - no real accomplishments are sacrificed should an account be deleted. Sure, I have almost every champion and all the runes I could want on the PBE and then some, but none of it affects my live account at all.

We get to try out stuff before it goes live and have a more significant impact on how it is balanced. There is no excuse for such behavior on a testing server and proven offenders should be treated appropriately, by perma ban. If someone is seriously toxic (AFKers, trolls, leavers, dumb kids who rage all game), then report them and whoever handles bans on the PBE can look at the game logs and decide.

Sure, new accounts can be created, but signups only being a couple days a month prevents most would be trolls from recreating accounts. By the time the next sign up rolls around they forget. Inevitably there will be such people, but they can be sharply reduced.

Now, dc's and such are inevitable and I'm not saying getting leaver penalty should mean an instant ban. But if there's enough evidence to say you are just raging or trolling/afking, you should just be permabanned.

The PBE is a privilege to players, not a right. There is absolutely no reason to forgive misconduct (misconduct carrying the implication that it is deliberate) on a test server where you are provided everything. Forgiveness for such behavior is necessary on the live servers, because, let's face it, people get angry and some like aggravating people. While I don't think the latter are forgivable, players may grow out of their behavior or regret it, especially when it results in account suspension.

tl;dr, Perma ban deliberate misconduct on the PBE.

This is true. Riot would easily have access to the IP's accessing those accounts and they could IP ban from the PBE stopping toxic players from playing on something that should be a priviledge. This would allow account sign-ups to be reopened which have been down since November.

I just play bots. I can test out bugs and champs without the **** you mentioned...but then again I rarely play PVP in live servers anyway so there's that

Id have to agree with all of this.. PBE is OUT OF CONTROL... 2 misn in you will have an afk, first blood another rage quit... now its 3v5... you honestly cant test ANYTHIGN out... the only way to describe it... take every person in prison out, and put them all in one lil city... because all it is, is every banned player joining up to get free everything and troll without it costing them a thing... not to mention i dont believe thers even a way to be banned in PBE... thers no tribunal.. so reports are useless and they know it... hince when you even say you will report them the first thing out of there mouths "idc cause you cant be banned in PBE" PBE should be a privalge.. to get champs skins and otehr things for FREE, should be earned.. it shouldnt be a a free for all for trolls n what not... 80% of PBE testers honest dont give a damn about the game or the cumminuty... its very sad to see what has potentiol go down the drain soo fast... i know its not part of the main game so riot doesnt spend as much time fixing it...but you expect us to get on and work for free to help you guys out? Well how about some help in return...how about you help us fix this community so we can do what we do best and make this game better for all who play it.... and i think thats what everyone here is just asking...HELP US IN PBE SO THAT WE CAN DO WHAT YOU BASICALLY HIRED US ( giving us free rp/ip) TO DO!

People play ranked and even mainly play PBE instead of the real game.
I've seen someone with 900 wins in PBE and my eye twitched at that fact.

People constantly troll and say "haha so report me, it's just PBE". Often people are rude, swear at the other team, feed, and even insult the game. I've had people say that the PBE is better than the actual game. Nobody plays as a team in PBE, they just autolock to try out a new skin and still feel that spending RP on the actual game is not worth it.

Tbh, the PBE community does suck, but so does the NA with the constant blaming, false reports, trolls, and premade negative players. People forget that PBE is to test, share ideas, discuss problems, and report exploits.. All while playing how the game is meant to as a TEAM and with no negativity.

You can't test builds to see if they're op without playing a game as was intended. 2 people afk'ing is not how the game was intended to be played. We are not testing bugs to their full potential if we can't play a normal game with 5 players vs 5 players
