Hey Pawnce,

We've been discussing every day the best ways to handle both "small" and "large" accounts. For perspective, we've actually identified your account as a "larger" account. There are plenty of ways we could tackle this, but for the immediate future, we will start by passively supporting the accounts we've identified so far (that is, we just won't deactivate them during the sweep) rather than reaching out and working directly with contributors about what type of accounts they may need. We'll increase support over time, but our current priority is to make sure to not damage current value.

In the future, there will be a more established process in place that will especially help newer contributors. We can't guarantee everyone looking to get started as a YouTuber will get free permanent access to the PBE just by asking for it, but we will be announcing our plans as to how we'll support these types of players.

For other contributors watching this thread: we've been identifying and flagging PBE accounts for preservation this past week (including international accounts for non-NA communities) though we have been quiet about it so far. There will be a system in place in the future for newer contributors to reach out to us to help get started, and also an evaluation framework for how well the partnership is working.

The PBE is about partnerships, both for players to help us make the game better, and for Riot to work with leaders in the community. My goal is for both types of partnerships to increase in quality over time, and while I can't announce details at this moment, we're definitely working on it!


Hi

I'm really glad to hear some more information from Riot regarding this issue,Thank you.
I'm a Youtuber myself and my channel (LoLeaks) relies on PBE 100%,i have been uploading new skins,champions,etc,on my channel for more than 2 years now.
I have around 33,000 Subs and i get around 1.5-2Mil views a month,i don't know if you identify my channel as "Large",but it means really a lot to me and it's been my only income.
I hope channels that have been contributing to community will get noticed.

@LoLeaks: please post the summoner names you use in the PBE. I was looking for your info specifically earlier today.

For context, I totally get where you guys are coming from. Before working at Riot, I used to work for Rooster Teeth (on Red vs. Blue, a Halo-based show) and prior to that, I ran YouTube / justin.tv channels (Twitch wasn't around yet!) specifically for fighting games to help pay my rent when I lived in New York. Created content from videogames is really near and dear to my heart

But to set expectations, it's likely that we're going to miss some people in the first go-around. We'll be working hard to make sure things work out, but it might take some time.
