(Name changed recently, Im now Artaluna)

A note to everyone: I wanted to say thank you too all the supporters who helped me with this! I finally told my friend Zenizor about this whole excursion and the reaction that he gave me was the best thing I could of experienced from a great friend. I want to say that I've gained a lot of friends (supporters) whom I plan to continue our relationship in LoL, over skype and to continue playing with all my new friends. For everyone else, I'm sorry if you supported and didn't win any RP or didn't add me to your friends, you are more than welcome to add me. I wish I could reward everyone but it's not easy, especially since I've had over 2k supporters and 130+ people who entered to win RP. I would like to make some shoutouts before this thread begins to collect dust and fade away:
SpiritHacker: Thank you for donating the $25 RP card to this cause! I really appreciate everything you've done for me and the other 2k threads out there. I believe this is the start of a great friendship between us and I thank you again.
Annapii: Thank you for being the first supporter to add me to your friends, good luck in your 2k thread excursion, I wish you the best!
TheDraaven: I wanted to thank you for your efforts when this thread was reaching the end, you should add me to your friends list. I am glad you helped out so much and entertained all the people to this thread, I'm glad you spent alot of time in helping me.
Hippalus: I was excited when you added me, and I was nervous to be honest but you are a great guy and I appreciate everything you are doing for Zenizor and I! Lets play some ARAM or normals one day, it'd be alot of fun, I'd introduce you to Zenizor as well.
mgcgamer: You gave me faith and the will to turn this thread into "Help me Hippalus" into "lets reach 2k!" If you didn't tell me about this I'd have not put in the dedication needed to get this thread to 2k. Thank you so much!

Congratulations Potpourri - it's great to see such effort behind a good cause. Your generous gift should go through sometime tomorrow.

To other 2k upvote thread creators, we will be ending this method of gifting/trading skins, and will not be processing any gifts/trades for upvotes after December 31. Achieving 2k upvotes is too much effort and out of the reach of most, and while it has rewarded a few well deserving players, I'd like to focus on solutions which can solve these problems for many more.

Help these people out if you can before the deadline:

I got in contact with Hippalus. Thank you everyone!

Giving away RP, check giveaway section below.

From what I've been told it seems I need to get 2k upvotes, this wasn't my intentions from the start, thought I could bait Hippalus out to help me. All supports, bumps and votes are greatly appreciated.

Hmm. Let's bump the stakes a bit and see if GD responds.

Potpourri, if we reach 2k before Dec. 1, I'll send you a $25 RP card to raffle off. Shouldn't be a problem given our current pace, but I want to be sure we keep or improve that pace. ^_^ (Might want to put that new incentive somewhere near the top of your post so it catches people's eyes immediately. Nothing like going "oh, 2k thread, gonna downvote... wait, $25 RP card if he finishes in less than a week, might as well try for the card *upvote* )

Images at bottom of the page, either drawn from me or supporters.

tl;dr: I missed my friend's birthday, so please Hippalus, I'd like you to gift my UFO Corki skin to Zenizor. To do this I need 2k upvotes.


I started league back in 2009 near 2010 when I heard about its popularity one a gaming forum I used to roam on. Curious, I made an account, played through tutorial but quit because I was confused by how to play this MOBA. It's not like I forgot about League of Legends, it always sat in the back of my mind, making me wonder if I should of tried it more than just giving up.

A year later, I rejoined a few weeks before Lulu's release, I picked up LoL again. This time I wasn't going to give up, I ran through tutorial, played co-op until 10, hit PvP until 30 and had the most wonderful time ever. And for that Riot I bought my first RP card, invited my three siblings to play, bought them all RP card and now we all play LoL.

During this period I met this guy during a ranked game. I plummeted from 1200 elo to 800 elo because I did not have enough PvP experience under my belt and found myself digging a bigger grave. Depressed, hopeless and about to give up, I slowly practiced more, read more, studied more until I pulled myself all the way to 1200. However, it'd be criminal to say that I did it alone. I met this guy on my way back up, a special friend who played Janna during one of my ranked games when I played Ashe. At first it was nothing special, he was a great support and I friended him because we played so well. But if I knew that day that it would escalate to the friendship we had today, I would of got him a gift for his birthday.

I missed his birthday, I never knew his birthday. However, we continued to play rank together, talk on skype, play normal and invite more friends. Soon we became such good friends that he even bought Guild Wars 2 to play with me. We both play LoL and GW2 together, and I thank LoL for this great friend. However, he is willing to spent $60 to play a game with me, what do I have to show for?

Hippalus. hear my words, I'd like you to do me a big favor. I was given a vintage skin, UFO Corki, from back when I made this account. My friend, his summoner name is Zenizor, is one of my closest and most respectable friend I've met online, and he had always wanted to get UFO Corki. I missed his birthday, so please Hippalus, I'd like you to gift my UFO Corki skin to this man. To Zenizor, to the guy who had made my LoL experience so wonderful that I continue to get active in everything LoL has to offer.

I don't want a skin from him, but he said if a trade is needed he's willing to trade his Jaximus skin, a skin he paid to help donate to cancer, to me. Please Hippalus, help us out, help me show my appreciation to this friend of mine.


I was thinking to myself on how to reward the supporters who help me with my cause. Sadly, I do not have the power nor the wealth to reward every supporter, however, I'd like to try to give a reason for people to support my cause besides just my art. To show my gratitude, this is what I'll do.

I plan to give away four $10 RP cards, I know it's not much but I'm a poor college kid, this is all I can offer for now. I'll be giving one away at 950 upvotes, one at 1.3k upvotes, one at 1.65k upvotes and another at 1.9k upvotes. The way this works is I will enter your name into an excel spreadsheet. From there, I'll use a random number generator. If the number I generate matches the number on the spreadsheet I will add you ingame with the RP card codes. After I'd like the winner to post in the thread to confirm the legitimacy.

Spirithacker graciously donated $25 for the final drawing at 2k upvotes. Winner of this card will be both underlined and bolded.

To participate, reply to this thread either with:
A) An art (even stick figure doodle works)
B) A joke (even terrible puns)
C) A poem (go for it! anything is fine, even haikus)
D) A short story (keep it appropriate)
E) Anything else that is creative

If you do this I will enter you in the drawing. You can only enter once per account.
Name underlined are those who have won.

This song started playing on my playlist while I read through the entire paragraph


I shed a small tear, and with it hope in humanity and loyalty has been re-assured, maybe if only so slightly, but people like the OP is what gives me hope that the LoL community might change some time in the future.
