We’re making this change because player behavior on the PBE has been impacting your ability to test upcoming content in a great environment and we'd like to correct this:
- Players who are banned for trolling/harassment/etc can simply make a new account immediately
- Developers are unable to obtain reliable and actionable feedback from the PBE because games are often skewed by leavers/trolls
- Players who are actually using the PBE to provide feedback and report bugs are discouraged from participating because of the actions of others
Rest assured! We are working on implementing a multitude of improvements to help with this problem as the PBE continues to be an excellent resource for bug finding and feedback during every release cycle; not to mention we also have some pretty awesome summoners on the PBE! Limiting sign-ups is the first step to help make the PBE a better place for playing and gathering feedback.
So like, please know what your saying, Riot.
