PVP.net is the front-end interface for the player versus player aspect of League of Legends.
PVP.net is a platform for League of Legends to launch from. It allows you to add friends, check the League of Legends store, and join chat rooms. PVP.net can be considered a separate entity from the actual game but the two are linked and cannot be used separately.
PVP.net was updated on August 27, 2014 with patch 4.15. It introduced a new interface layout, design and also lowering frame rate issues.
- For more details, see Launcher.
The Launcher is the initial window that checks for game updates and launches the PVP.net client for League of Legends.
Log-in Screen Edit
Log-in screen proceeds after the Launcher and is used by the player to log-in and sign-up the game, League of Legends. This window helps out sorting each players specific data with the log-in system. With each passing patch and some event, the Log-in Screen animation is changed accordingly. It has several options:
- Username: A bracket made specifically to type-in the players personal Username made after he/she created an account. Each player must have a different Username.
- If a player can not remember their Username there is also an option that helps with this issue.
- Password: A bracket made specifically to type-in the players personal password made after he/she created an account. Each player must have a different password and is the last line of defense for unwanted account use.
- If a player can not remember their password there is also an option that helps with this issue.
- Sign-up: For those players who have downloaded the game but have not made an account already, the sign-up option links them to Riots account creation screen. This option works in conjuncture with Refer A Friend system.
