**Adding this to the top. This feature was tested over a month ago and did not make it in this form to Live. I only used these icons for testing the Freljord Icon event.**

The latest information about new features on the PBE can be found here!: http://community.pbe.leagueoflegends.com/f/2EAF660193FA3B668D7234B3AEBB530C5AB7F651/d/9A44D6E48D943B4FF60F0BBCA1A1932668778093

Hello Summoners!
We want your help. You’ve seen us add icons in unique ways for events such as The Harrowing, Snowdown Showdown, and most recently the Lunar Revel.

We wanted to test some icon granting functionality. How does it work?

First select one of the following default icons (all accounts have them) as your icon in the client:

Then you have to win 10 games and you will unlock another “10 win icon” based on which one you selected:
->
->
->
There are some additional rules though.

1) You can’t win with another of the 3 icons between your 10 wins!
EX: If you win 3 games with the icon and then win a game with the icon, your win counter will be set to 1 for the new icon and 0 for the old icon!

2) You can only have one of the “10 win icons” at a time!
EX: If you earn the icon and then earn the icon you will lose the icon!

3) No Co-op vs AI games or custom games are counted!

FAQ:

What if I get a win with an icon that is not one of the three you showed?
Nothing! Only WINNING with one of these three icons will affect your wins for the event.

Are you going to use these icons / do the exact same event on live?
No. This is merely for testing purposes.

Will I lose my icon if I win one game with a different icon?
You can only lose your icon by winning another icon!

How long do I have?
We hope to run this for at least a week on the PBE but may extend/shorten it as necessary.

How long will it take to receive my icon after my 10th win?
You should receive it within 24 hours. If you do not, please let us know here.

What games count?
There are two rules. No custom games and no Co-op vs. AI games. All other games will count (ranked/unranked/dominion/etc).

What happens if I lose?
Nothing! Only wins are considered in this event.

Can I see my win counter anywhere?
Unfortunately you cannot. So please keep track of your wins.

If I find a bug what do I do?
Describe it in detail here! Also be sure to include the summoner name of your PBE account so I can investigate.

Ooh, cool idea. Not sure I like the "win a new one lose the old one" idea as far as moving on to live goes, unless its like a progression thing (win 10 with A to get B, win 10 with B to upgrade to C), but it does sound like a neat idea other than that! Can't wait to see where you guys go with this!

As long as they're fresh new icons. Don't bring back those!

We don't have any current plans for re-using these icons. It is purely for testing purposes.

Sounds interesting, but why only normal and ranked and not customs and co-op vs ai?

<<So...is this only for PBE players, or do you plan to bring it live as well?

Now everyone will see how much I suck LOL. I'll have to see this in action before I decide if I like it or not. It's always fun having something that others don't
