: Position ranks and split rewards coming to PBE today for 9.2!
Since you can now rank in multiple roles can challenger players now get into challenger 5 times with each role or is only their highest rank shown?
: You can answer that by yourself. It is painfully obvious that Cho and Vel are on their Default Skins, therefore safe to say that the Star Guardians fight Void Creatures, that naturally pose a threat to every world.

: As *Para* mentioned, it's only live on OCE right now on the live servers. It's coming pretty soon, so hang tight until the Open Beta officially hits the NA region. Let me know if you have any questions.

: Well, before release is beta, and before beta is alpha. Beta will be open to all players however. There's no information on a definitive date because even Riot probably doesn't know, as there are many bugs and features still being worked on with uncertainty. It's whenever they finish alpha goals.

There's no information on a definitive date because even Riot probably doesn't know, as there are many bugs and features still being worked on with uncertainty. It's whenever they finish alpha goals. Open beta will be open during preseason. We will have to test a few things first but we have gotten really far since the beginning of the alpha.
: That information isn't public, so there's not currently a way to see your true MMR. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you for answering my question, you da real mvp. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
: I wouldn't read too much into what a third-party site lists your MMR at. Note that these sites can only **estimate your MMR**. The Riot API doesn't give them access to your true MMR, so your *estimated MMR* looks different on every third-party site you visit, depending on the algorithm they use. Let me know if you have any questions.
how can we know what our real mmr is?
: League Alpha Client Error
Can you put in the steps u take to get this error
: Now active, though clubs have yet to be enabled server side but the tab is there
Ty for letting me know. You da real mvp
: Now Testing: Loot and Clubs
Is hextech crefting and clubs already enabled or not???
: If you want a reply never ask anything on your regional boards, always go to Reddit or NA boards. Not only NA Rioters are the ones that works on the game, they are also the only ones who gives fck and have actual answers. ;-)
Riot said they just want to create a new client first and then make new things. Stuff like maximising the client, skins tab, etc.
: We know about this and have a fix, you should see it tomorrow! Thanks for the report!
so after seeing this post, will ranked be the next thing we will test as alpha testers?
: Is there a need for Alpha Client testers on a Mac
I've been on the lcu since patch 0.5/0.6(don't know it anymore) and the new client is very good. a mac can finally handle the lol client without bugs. But i signed in when it was announced so you'll maybe lucky. But either way the lcu client will probably be available after the preseason.

: Draft Pick Thoughts
the better would be to just put the old client into the lcu, it gives a more hextech feeling like RIOT wanted to be cause the new champ select now is certainly good the old one is just cleaner, simpler and more beautiful. If Riot would just make the old role symbols into the new client and the old lane directions map instead of the new one that would be wonderful. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Very Difficult to Use and Test
What are your computer specs? There is a disable animations feature in the settings button but i don't know how much this will help.

: Store?
Same here, i think its just a bug.
: The Store.
i can't open it either. It is also greyed out. But the store mostly functions as a browser so they just have to enable it prob later this patch cycle. {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}
: Starting with PBE, they haven't accepted new people for a long time. About Alpha Client, they accept people each patch. I got Alpha Client since 0.01 because I'm sure I was one of the few first sign ups for that. Now, it's harder to get accepted because people are starting to sign up a lot. So if they only accept 1000 people each patch (it's just an example, I don't know the real numbers) and they get 5000 new sign ups every patch, it gets harder to get access but those people will actually get in the Alpha client at some point. It may not be a matter of if you will get accepted, but more like of "when". Just be patient and you'll get in at some point.
i signed up for the alpha as soon as they revealed it. Got into the lcu in patch 0.6 so you'll just have to be lucky
: Can I have the option to disable the animations, I'm running on a lower end machine and the animations cause noticeable lag. Also, after locking in a champion, I'd like to be able to still see my champion list so I can see who I have and can trade with whoever I am with, granted I have every champion on my main account, but many people do not so it would be a nice feature to have.
They want to build the client now and when it fully releases they will make this an option to differentiate high and low intense animations. Just wait for it. It will happen like the yorick rework you'll just have to wait. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-unamused}}
: The client is still quite a ways off from release. They will probably add the window resizing in the polish phase. That will be after they implement everything, like all of the queues and lobbies for RGM, CoOp, Customs, hextech crafting etc.
Do you know if we will get a fullscreen option in the new client?
: ahhh... I didn't know that the normal alpha client and pbe alpha client were different.
it is just like the normal pbe they test it first and get all the serious bugs out of the way. then they will bring it to the live servers.
: Current plan is that draft goodness will hit in about three weeks. But it's an alpha, not a super crisp marketing campaign, so you may have to pray to alpha zeus (god of all alphas) for it to land then.
well 2 weeks have passed currently hopefully it will release this week along with the new patch. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: I don't see Draft Pick on game mode on the alpha client
they will add it within a few weeks but it is currently online in the pbe alpha not the normal alpha so you'll have to wait.{{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}

: [Feedback] 24 feelings and suggestions
For number 6, they will do it. Butt they will finish the alpha client first and then thy will work on plug ins for the new one like the skint tab in collection and other stuff.

: Store still not available after 8/2 patch
the store is currently available in the pbe alpha client but it'll ship in the next week or so.
: Alpha Questions
u can join here but it is not guaranteed you will get an invite. http://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/client-update/signup
: Yes, you still get the IP as usual for each of your games. The same is true for other rewards such as hextech materials. The RP and IP values don't update immediately in the client because that will come when the store is added. Thanks for testing the alpha!
What is the next thing u guys will be focusing on, or do we have to wait to see it on the alpha client webpage?

: Ok then at the moment its available for pbe alpha client testers. Or the animation was just shown and its coming to a future update. If not then it will come sooner or later.
The animation is currently disabled but Riot is going to implement this transition in the Live client when it will launch.

: Alpha Client in Mac Applications Folder
Go to league right click on the icon and click "show package contents" then contents after that you press LOL and there would be the full application instead of the aliases. This is just to simplify the workflow and it wont require another 8gb of storage since you are still on the same server.
: It's actually been pretty smooth so far, but I guess I'll have to keep an eye out when the rest of the client's features are added in. :) I think overall, the new client (both pc and mac) is going to run better on most desktop/laptops than the regular one currently does.
thx, got my invite to test it today. I hope i'll be smoother then the old client. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}
: Wrong Splash Art On Alpha Client
does the same splash art appear in the loading screen or is it the updated?

Ooh a mac user. Is your experience better then the old client, and how is Ram management.

: Couldn't agree more that LoL needs some better options for "shorter game modes". We do what we can with Featured Game Modes when they release. I want to address the "chicken & egg" analogy for Dominion support here as well. The large majority of players _immediately_ bounced from the mode even when it was first released, preferring Summoner's Rift gameplay instead. The "capture & hold" style of gameplay didn't translate well into a MOBA and players voted strongly with their time: they spent it in SR instead. We certainly could have spent the time & resources to design out the problems and mitigate floors in Dominion, but we recognised an already better experience existed in SR. It had more strategic choice, clearer game-state and a wider variety of satisfying roles. The team chose to double-down on SR instead of splitting between both SR and Dominion. At that point we should have _clearly_ communicated this to you guys, which we didn't. That sucked and it's our bad. Dominion's map shape + capture & hold gameplay was going to have diminishing returns for design time spent on it: and players still just wanted to play SR. I believe League is in a better place today for the time and effort we spent doubling down on SR, rather than splitting focus on Dominion.
dominion is a game mode that wasn't recognised by the community. But why deleting the map? Some people have made very fun custom games on the dominion map like "hide and seek". I really like this game mode and had a lot of fun with my friends. deleting dominion from the normal pvp maybe isn't a bad idea but pls let it stay in custom game modes.
