I just got the Mac PBE client working, currently patching updates, and I was wondering if the account sign up is the same as the Windows PBE? if it is do I have to wait forever and hope that there's an open day? As long as I've been playing League I've wanted to also take part in the PBE especially after getting lvl 30, and now that I no longer have a PC I get no League action unless I can get into the PBE.

There's only one PBE server, and all users, mac & windows, share it. Its still extremely hard to get an account, as the signup windows are short and come without warning.

That said, the Live mac client works great; why don't you get your LoL fix on the normal servers, until you can get lucky and snag a PBE account?

I didn't know there was a live client for Mac? I thought it was strictly PBE? How do I make sure I have the correct client for the LIVE Mac servers?

The live client is right here: http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/redownload
The PBE client is right here: http://l3cdn.riotgames.com/PBE/Leagu...ends%20PBE.dmg

When you launch the patcher, it clearly shows if you're on a live server (North America) above the Change Region button, or if you're on the PBE.

Okay, it does say North America, so can I use my normal live account to play?

I'm kind of confused, as my previous post clearly stated that if it says North America, you're on the live servers, and it follows that you could then use your normal live account to play.

Why did you waste time asking this trivial question, when you could have just logged in and played instead?
