Ok... I'm just plain tired of hearing that fallacy...
Do you honestly think that how the game goes (before it even starts) is irrelevant to testing? Do you really think that if I main ADC, Support, Mid, and Top, but I end up in the Jungle, I will be certain of the intricacies of such a role (what is hopable by what skill, leash ranges, what is the default smite cd in case the Spectral wraith doesn't work).
Next, I'm one of those idiotic person who thinks that it is way easier to test in a calm and smooth environment... And I don't consider duo mid, 1 top, 1 afk and jungling support (since I chose to take smite because other 4 wouldn't) a calm and smooth environment. When you have 2-3 persons yelling at each others' face and QQing that everyone is doing badly but them. Honestly, it's pretty hard to focus on anything at all in such games...
So yes it's a test server, but being a complete dick is a hindrance to such tests.
Next, I can understand it's a test server, but are tests that only thing that has to be done on test servers? I honestly don't think so... I believe that if I create an account on here, I think I should have the choice, at any given time, to play or test. Right now, since there are no prerequisites at all, we can be paired with 2 trolls, 1 persons "testing" (read as troll who uses "testing" as an excuse to stack boots), 4 serious players/testers, and 2 persons who have the skill of a level 15. Honestly, I think that reaching level 30 and having at least 25-50 wins (at level 30) should be a prerequisite to join... Sure I don't care if they're bad... but there is a ****ing mile between a bad level 30, and a good level 3... That mile is called knowledge... and in my opinion, knowledge is needed to test... and knowledge is reflected in plays.
So yes, it's a test realm, but no we shouldn't be limited to tests, and no, I don't think that dodgers/leavers/AFK/trolls/etc. have no effects on test... No matter how much good will you have.
