Current application process:

Do you want to join the PBE?
Yes? Great! Here's a PBE account!






Really? No "why do you want a pbe account"? No "what maps and champions are you planning on playing the most"? Nothing like this? How do you plan to get a good PBE community with this new system of just anyone can join. You're going to get a bunch of people who just want access to everything and test things out before anyone else without actually testing anything.

That's why they changed it probably.

Now its. We gave you a chance, why should we keep inviting you?

OVerall the new system is better since if you leave you have something to lose.

Having been a simi regularPBE player for well over a year it is kinda annoying having someone DC in every other game. With the real posibility of losing your real account of you leave games often on the PBE now it should get slightly better in some ways while not much better in others.

I still expect a fair amount of que dodging when a new champ is added while the nimber of people who leave mid game will drop.

I think e-mail verification should also count in the process. If you're legitimate and you really care about the game, you should personally send Riot why you're worthy to be a PBE tester.

I'm speaking on behalf of those people who cares and knows a lot about the game, but stopped playing PvP a long time ago.

Not everyone gets in.

They also said that you have to have at least a level 30 account and generally the people with more experience via games played and what champions you have played can impact if you get in. Also if you have provided good solid feedback in the past as well as if your main account has ever been banned/ warned. thats why they had you sign in and apply via your account so that way they can analyse your accounts data so they know if you are best for the current iterations testing cycle.
