Hello, my name is Brendan my online alias is Chaosstorm and I run the YouTube channel "CapturedHD" I cover PBE content similar to sites like "Surrenderat20" but instead I do everything via commentary/gameplay. My channel like many others are my lively hood, when the news dropped about limited PBE access I looked at it mostly positive other than the fact that having this feature will ruin many YouTube channels and sites that cover PBE content for a living, and of course being able to do this for a living means we can put more time and effort into our content. (Video talking about the issue http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUp2zUbpzPw)

The only bit of good news I have been able to find was a quote from a rioter that said; When asked if sites like Surrender at 20 - news sites covering PBE updates - will only have temp accounts, RiotNinjaTabby replied:
"Don't worry, we will make sure that these kinds of community sites can still function." (Found from Surrenderat20 website)

If we could get some more information on this issue, such as will there be a way to apply for permanent access? Do we need to contact Riot and if so how can we do so? Knowing any info would put allot of people at ease.

Thank you for your time.

Riot should make an application for people that help community by showing PBE news etc..,you fill the info somehow prove that website/channel is yours and they give you access.

That sounds like a great idea! I think proving yourself would be easy, considering most of us has a business email.

A "normal player" application and a "news" application to tell the people what's happening on the PBE would be nice for everyone (the players who aren't on the PBE and the people covering it.)
