Is Riot a good company?
 
Thinking about buying skins every holiday to support this f2p game. But I want to get peoples opinions before I buy any - is Riot a good company? Are they worth supporting? Do they listen to the players?

I notice that some of their updates get a ton of downvotes yet they don't do anything. Random nerfs and buffs, and promises that seem to never come.

What do you think?

Do you enjoy playing this game? If so, how long are you going to play it?

is Tencent a good company?

Of the current game companies out right, on terms of communication, Riot is quite possibly the best at listening directly to their player base. Sure, it's a little frustrating when they don't reply to your comment, but they are after all a company, and that restricts what their employees can divulge/promise at certain times.

They are an awesome game company, but that's just my opinion, without anyone else's testimony, would you support this game?

Ultimately the decision's yours and I wouldn't grab the opinions of a few strangers on an internet forum to solidify my view on something personally.

I just want to make sure. I wouldn't want to support a company that doesn't listen to it's players. I don't go on forums much or read that feedback you guys post, so I wouldn't have a good educated decision. But i really do like this game a lot :)

Riot is solid, but I'm not a huge fan of Tencent A.K.A. Chinese Overlords.

eh, better than most. They actually listen.

I'm a runescape player, well was. They release a lot of updates that no one likes and they refuse to listen to the players. I'm used to paying 5 bucks a month, but not to Jagex anymore, so I'm willing to support someone that cares for its players and a game that I love.

They listen to and interact with the playerbase too much. Except for the higher up Reds, this interaction typically gets them into trouble and is followed by a post of them saying they must roll back their forum participation for any number of reasons. The higher ups like Zileas, who is a tasteful troll, can generally do what they want in regards to posts and are usually a benevolent presence. I say generally because there are exceptions like Pendragon, who regularly (at least, in the past) engaged in public defamation of LoL players as well as possessing a higher-than-thou attitude. He's not around as much anymore, I suspect because of some behind-the-scenes reprimand from superiors.

Riot from my perspective is a pretty good community-oriented company. Despite people who are always complaining about prices, Riot does not monetize the game as much as they could, so those criticisms don't have much foundation.

I personally think that they're a pretty good company.
