League of Legends has once again opened up registrations for the Public Beta Environment (PBE) and is asking interested players for their feedback.
Posting on the official forums, the developer highlighted a few changes that newcomers should be aware of. Players must first link their main League of Legends account with their newly created PBE account. The system will then confirm whether the main account has any current restrictions or bans brought on by negative player behavior. In addition, players must have an honor level of at least three for their applications to be accepted.
Once an account has been created for the PBE, it will be raised to level thirty and loaded with Riot Points (RP) and Blue Essence (BE) automatically. These might take a couple of hours before showing up.
Take note that the PBE is located in North America. Those connecting from outside will have to face higher than expected latency. On that note, the online infrastructure has been improved with better servers. The locals, at least, should find a smoother experience.
The PBE is a place of testing and offering feedback to the development team. Every piece of new content, every feature, every balance adjustment, just about anything that is part of an upcoming update is first dropped here for participants to access and affirm that everything is working as intended.
The PBE is currently filled with the upcoming pre-season changes and features. These include the massive Runes Reforged program, an infinite leveling cap, a revamped rewards system, the new global currency, and more.
Riot Games has confirmed that the pre-season update is scheduled to go live on November 8. This will be in the same week following the conclusion of the 2017 League of Legends World Championship.
