State of Player Behavior on the PBE - Present and Future

Hey everyone,

Since the PBE launched, it has proven an extremely valuable resource that has raised the quality of our content patches; however, from a player behavior perspective, we have not done our part to make the PBE an enjoyable test environment.

That’s all changing.

In the past year, the player behavior team has learned a lot from systems like the Tribunal, LeaverBuster and the Honor Initiative, and we are going to incorporate some of those lessons into the PBE. However, we are going to take a slightly different approach; for example, we are not going to just create a “PBE Tribunal” and call it a day.

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. The PBE effort should be a collaboration between the developers and our community, and should be a place where players can play games with developers on any given day and directly contribute feedback that can shape the game.

We are going to try a lot of creative ideas to improve player behavior on PBE; however, we need your help. We have been recording and analyzing Report and Honor data on the PBE, and need you to continue to report toxic players and honor positive players to help inform our new player behavior initiatives on the PBE.

As an example, we have implemented a system on PBE that will automatically detect toxic behaviors and ban the players the same day—this system will go live today and will immediately punish 167 players with a 7 day ban. Depending on the consistency and severity of the toxic behaviors, this system will hand out bans that range in severity from a 7 day ban to a permanent ban from the PBE environment. This system will start off conservative and may have hiccups at first, but we hope to ramp up the aggressiveness of this system while maintaining a goal of 99% accuracy with a false positive rate of less than 1%.

The player behavior team has also been brainstorming punishments in addition to or instead of bans. We have always known that bans are not an ideal punishment solution when players can simply create new accounts, and we would like to experiment with some potential alternatives on the PBE. We believe the PBE community will see immediate benefits from these experiments even though they are not completely developed or polished yet. I am excited to talk more about the first experiment, and will update you when we are closer to rolling it out on PBE.

Longer-term, we are brainstorming ways to make players more accountable for their behaviors on PBE. Whether that is linking live accounts to PBE accounts or an entirely different solution is undecided, but these changes to the PBE will also allow us to completely open up registration to the PBE in the future.

Our take-away message today is quite simple: the PBE has zero tolerance for toxicity, and change is coming.

Help us make the PBE a premium test environment!

Just a bit longer they're ironing out the Toxic Player problem before letting more folks in as you can tell from the RIOT posts in this thread once it's solved though I'm sure you can sign up

And the third one?
Why do Riot have to punish them in live version when they volunteer to help. No No
Just banned their PBE account. They can play when it is unbanned. And prevent them to make more account by his/her previous account. One PBE acc for one Live acc.
Yeah you can make 100 live acc but make it to lvl 30 is really a hard work. And if you use that PBE account to troll then you just troll yourself cause you are wasting time lvling up your account just to troll for a couple of day.



The reason behind this one is:
Lets say i was a jackass trolling on the PBE, i get into so much trouble that i get banned for a few days. well guess what i have a live server i can jump on!
lets go a spent further into the truth:
lets say i am trolling the PBE (while sign ups are allowed) i get into trouble and account gets banned... boo hoo. i make another account on the PBE and back to trolling.

by making a requirement of having a level 30 live account linked to the PBE account it will make it so people will actually CARE about getting a ban , on either server. and if they do get a perma band because of it they will be out of the PBE for a while not just untill the sign ups come back.

why not give them there weekly ip and rp if they mess up and the worse the punishment the more weeks they don't get there ip and rp. and if it gets too bad all there champions and skins are taken away.

Myself don't really think changing ban will help players' behavior improve. I think the game need to classify players into many specific groups in order to create a better game environment. Banning issues these day are more than 80% related to bad matches, desperate gamers who only try to avoid trollers and afks
Secondly, what happen if their main account was banned ? Obviously they will create another account (smurfing) and continuously ruin the game till they felt sleepy and go to bed.
I think we need less bans as possible, and figure out the way to contact gamers thorough the tribunal.

Is it possible to ban the IP and not just the account, because many toxic players have more then one account...
i just reported a toxic who just wrote "report me, i have 6 acc"

Kind regards DarkPsylord

Can we speed up this process? Ever since the 1st of April every game seems like a struggle of trying to ignore the racist/homophobic slurs and profanities thrown your way and its always hard to communicate with someone who says "meh its just PBE I wont get banned".

This.. This is what i came to say..

Seriously riot? How do we know the people we report are getting banned..
Racial Slurs? Threats? It's gotten to the point where PBE is the place to troll and hate.
I Love this game riot, but the players on PBE are getting away with almost everything..
They could hide Dead Bodies in the PBE but nobody would punish! Why are the meanest people on PBE. It's Outrageous.

So I just played a game to test out the new Sejuani (to find out that the relaunch wasn't applied)

Oh my god, the PBE is a hell hole.

4 trolls/flamers on my team and I am not exaggerating. I asked the enemy team to report them and they just replied "stfu noob"
