Let me preface this by saying that I am not a Huntsman, a Huntsman smurf account, nor do I currently have any intention of applying to become one.

That said, today it has come to my attention that the Huntsmen are placed at the end of the login queue just like any average member of the PBE. These are volunteers that Riot has officially recognized as valued bug testers, and people who spend a great deal of time making sure that our experience on both the PBE and Live is as bug free as possible.

It seems only fair to me that these people should have login priority and be placed at the front of the PBE queue, in order to make their ability to do their work as painless as possible. From my understanding there are only 9 of them, so it's not like giving them this priority is going to screw over the rest of the community.

What do you guys think? Vote in the poll.

Well, as awesome as this would be, it will probably never happen.

Anyone who isn't from Riot, working on the PBE as part of their actual job, has to face the login queues like everyone else. I'm pretty sure most Rioters don't bypass the queue, either. It's part of their policy to "share the pain" of their players.

TBH, we do not need them. Maybe that's just my opinion being able to help Riot and people here is more than enough for us. Also it really makes me and probably other Huntsmen happy that you appreciate our work, but we are no different than you guys We trying to do our best to make game itself better and raise its quality bar, because we care, just as you

TL;DR Thank you, but I do not think we need it

This has been brought up time and time again, while riot doesn't have an official view on it, we just assume they don't want us to be anything else than beacons for people to follow. We're not that much different than you guys.

THIS IS NOW HUNTSMEN THREAD.
All you inferior colours can get out!

As a Huntsman, I don't see why we should get or deserve queue priority. We're like normal players, just with a blue name and the adorable Teemo icon. Nothing's really special about us, we just volunteered. Plus, Rioters don't get to skip queue so why should we? I don't mind sitting in queue.

Riot employees have to deal with the login queue too.

Just an fyi, most Rioters have to sit in the login queue, too. Only a very select few can queue jump for when emergencies happen and something needs to be checked ASAP.

I can understand that for Live Server but it's not very useful when you have to do work on the PBE and it's not an emergency (For both Rioters and Huntsman).
