I already have a PBE account, and was recently informed I was accepted for more PBE testing (yay!). However, I was wondering if I'd be able to link my existing PBE account to my main summoner account, or if I will have to start over.

I had the same question myself.

Going to bump this, hopefully we can get a response.

You will probably not be able to link your old PBE account with your new one.

I guess I should also ask when is the change actually happening?

I tried loging on my my live account after being approved but I couldn't

My PBE account that I have been using still works.

Did you create a new PBE account here:

Sorry there's confusion about this-- we could have been more clear in the original messaging.

Even if you have an existing "old" style PBE account, you should still create another "new" style account if you've been approved. We announced that we'll be deactivating the "old" accounts (though obviously we haven't yet).

I know it can be inconvenient (especially if you're going to buy everything in the store again) but once you have your "new" account, it will be used even for future test cycles-- you won't have to do this every time. The main reason we want everyone to have the "new" account is that behind the scenes, the new account creation process provides us a lot of additional helpful data for testing.

Is there anyway I could get my old PBE account merged with the new one? It even has the same username and summoner name.

I had to go into the old PBE account a purchase a summoner name change so I could get the same summoner name for the new account. That was fine and dandy, but now I do have to remember that my login name is different.

How do I tell if my current (old) PBE Account is linked to my Main?
