they deserve a perk but not bypassing the login queue, maybe... like an ingame icon (something nice = POROs)

We're like normal players, just with a blue name and the adorable Teemo icon.

I never noticed the Teemo until now. YOU RUINED MY INNOCENCE!!!

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.

Just a little non sequitur question: Are Riot employees able to directly connect to the servers in Santa Monica and have like 1 ping? Because that would be AWESOME

Whenever I happen to play with any Rioter, they always have 8 ping. If they alt-tab, it looks like it jumps up a little, but once they re-enter it drops down to 8 again.

So, it sounds like... yes? Kinda? Not exactly 1, but 8 is pretty outstanding.

Oh sorry I don't think I have contributed yet :P
Personally it makes me so delighted to see someone looking out for the Huntsmen. I don't think queue priority is something that should be given to us because it wouldn't be fair to everyone else. I just try to log in right when the server comes up But it is nice to have everyone so active in bug searching/reporting.
Cheers.

I think we all should be treated equal. Why give huntsmen special treatment?

OH we're all posting here now?

I won't sit high on a horse, I actually really wanted this for the huntsman when I first joined. Then I learned that rioters sit through the login que as well, and I really stopped caring about it; it's certainly not a make or break thing anyways.

While I appreciate riots willingness to "share the pain of their players", I personally find it quite silly.

If players (or employee's) are known to contribute more to the environment, this is a pretty solid way to improve the toxicity level of players actively logging into the PBE.
Focused testing identified by Riot? Rioter flags testers account: Faster logins. Non identified accounts; back of the que.

My only argument is I can't exactly see it hurting, and can see it helping
But it's not something I think should only be for Huntsmen members; I think it could be universally flagged by Riot to the top "contributing" members of the PBE, whos PBE accounts have low "report" ratios. Being a huntsman shouldn't earn you an account flag to jump up the login que, being a good member of the PBE community on the other hand, should.

I would personally much rather the "toxic" or "troll" individuals on the PBE sit there for 5 hours in que while the dedicated focused individuals have their time reduced and prioritized over their negative counterparts.

---- but again I'm not missing out much having to wait in the PBE login que, I just go hunt through game files while I wait, or load up league on my other machine =)
Just one mans opinion, plus I thought we needed more teemo in here.
