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'd be interested in what kind of emergencies might warrant that happening.

Though I voted for the argument in this particular Huntsmen thread, that in general they should be given priority, I can think of a few select members who I might personally want to bump back in the queue.

D. No, Huntsmen membership shouldn't be incentivized with a line pass. Players should be Huntsmen because they want to help the game, not just get handouts.

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).


this. If this is the case, it seems like something that could and should be changed. if even rioter's can't skip the queue, that doesn't make much sense

I'd like to see players currently in game have priority in login queue.

Server hiccups, your client gets out of sync in bizarre ways, so you restart... and discover that everyone else did at the same time, and now you're AFK for 10mins instead of 1.

If being able to log in immediately ahead of a queue is a handout, that sounds like a pretty silly one! I personally don't mind waiting in queue, so that would definitely not be a handout for me, since it doesn't really bring me anything I particularly want or care for.

Er, actually... I'm pretty sure something like this is already in place. If your client crashes when in a game, you can jump straight in again no problem.

I've even had a few players who crashed out of lobby or after a game or just while chatting with other players, and it seemed like as long as they immediately tried to relog back in, they could jump straight in again. I could be wrong on this, but every time I crash out with a queue, it seems like I had a grace period in order to make it back in to skip waiting in the queue again.

I would rather see the people in games get in first.

I want to say they SHOULD, but they also SHOULDN'T..
Because, the huntsman are awesome people but what is the rush of getting in-game so fast?

What I basically saw was you can become a huntsmen for login perks.
