We deserve to be called out when we don't perform - that's one of the ways we can keep getting better and ensure we don't get complacent.
So he was fired?

In regards the the selling of runes for RP:

Technically, you've already opened the door to selling power by having champions be available for purchase. It's no argument that a person who has more champions at their disposal is at a better spot when playing any kind of draft game.

Secondarily, the people who spend money on champions can then entirely focus their IP gains on new runes, rather than having to split it between champions and runes. And collecting a minimum of 2 champions for each position in the game, and then a decent rune page for each kind of position, can take a -long- time.

And this isn't even mentioning things like buying additional rune pages, which most definitely gives you a 'bought advantage' over someone who can't have that.

At this point, you may as well let people purchase runes for RP. They can already buy advantages, let them reduce the grind if they want to. If not that, at least reduce the price points for runes. It feels very unfair to have to grind hugely and/or pay for champions, and then grind/split that with runes as well. A price reduction would benefit the playerbase as a whole, let them experiment more rather than worry about a typical runepage, and free up more money for things like skins.

I'd rather not have them sell runes for RP. I'd glad they made that decision.

We have to remind people to go home more often than not. Though I think that's the right problem to have - I'd rather remind people to relax than to work hard
