New Champion Select Back on PBE - Dec 9 through Dec 11

The new champion select is back on the PBE for more testing now through Friday, December 11th. During this time all other queues will be disabled to focus testing on the new champion select.
A feedback thread with instructions on how to report crashes by Riot SlumberJack can be found here. There is still no release date but this is to suit it up for live testing!

From NAKyle:
"Dates are hard, but we're on PBE right now trying to squish bugs that're preventing a live launch."


  • Strings referencing upcoming Beast Hunter Draven, Beast Hunter Sejuani, and Beast Hunter Tryndamere have all been removed.
