Why do I get the feeling this won't be coming as soon as we think?

More on topic...I gave up guessing when stuff will be released, there's really no point since you'll end up disappointed 90% of the time because you're making a guess based off next to no information on how far they are to a public release =/
The thing is when they first announced Dominion, Rioters were saying shortly after Pax. Now apparently their response is "no comment." It just doesn't look promising.

I was at Gamescom today, and a Riot staff member said... wait for it... months! He said definitely before the end of the year, but still a while away. The game was available for play and there was no apparent problems. There was tons of close games which showed somewhat balance and people were having fun. I was shocked when I heard months.

All Rioters are not created equal in their permission to speak about release dates.

"Shortly after PAX", was said by the president of the company. "No comment" was said by a designer who is not authorized to speak to the press about release dates.

I sense a Riot civil war coming!

But seriously, I definitely understand that not all employees have the same permission to say certain things. It just worried me because the Rioter being interviewed seemed to know something he wasn't allowed to say. I just honestly can't wait to play Dominion so when I hear stuff like that I get worried.

Now I'm sad again. Unless you are trolling. Nothing against you but I'm just going to assume you are trolling.

right? i hate all the hype, then the release isnt for months and months, so when it finally comes around im either not as exited as i was, or a little annoyed that it took so long

Wish I was. This day has been full of dissapointments, like the news above and the non working free Riot Nasus skin code I received. I'm thinking it's an EU server only thing. But yeah, no trolling here.

and "immediately after pax, just a couple days" was said by ZenonTheStoic on the livestream just earlier, who I am SURE wasn't supposed to. But he's too happy to get mad at apparently, because they keep putting his butt up there for all to see.

UPDATE: This is apparently Riots view on what "shortly after" means

Here is a quote from the newest champion pricing announcement.
"Beginning back in April we slashed the IP costs of Malphite, Morgana, and Ryze, with Cho'gath, Taric and Annie following shortly thereafter in August."

Riot Time:
Shortly after = 4-5 months

Oh dear
