We would need to play like more than 30 games to compensate the IP bonus, since it's just 34%; and I'm not playing that much this weekend, it's a WEEKEND.

Why not giving us a skin? the skins doens't even need to be good.

Why not giving us 340 rp.. or even 200, it would be better.

Fu*k that, i'm just disliking the facebook page.
That is actually a Novel idea. We can make our voice heard by disliking on facebook.

1. Why did this take you 6 months?

This boost weekend is actually one of a few ideas that we had originally, but we decided to do something much more complicated. Unfortunately, after a few months of development, our other reward just wasn't working due to unforeseen challenges caused by the recent Facebook changes. We had to put a hold on the project, and went back to the drawing board to figure out an alternative suggestion.

We ultimately decided to do a bonus weekend for EVERYONE verses only rewarding our fans on Facebook.

2. Why is the boost 34% vs. 100%?

We normally give out 3 & 10 win IP Boosts as rewards, but we wanted to do something different and make the reward persistent over a long period of time. This weekend, you'll be able to play as many games as you want, and win or lose, you'll get at least 34% more IP than you normally would.
But this actually does not reward everyone... I and many like me can not play as many games as we want... because of real life we cant play any games. Couldn't you just give everyone the boost?

Wow I cant believe im so fueled up by your response and have brought myself to a nasty low but if my Company (A Casino) gave that response to its STAR players even as a glimmer of humor we would be smacked in the face by our honorable big spenders.

I apologise for my nasty mouth but **** just ****. I couldnt even play around with my players let alone my fan base like that..

There's nothing NEW about that. They've always stuck their heads in the sand and hoped it went away.

And it usually works, sadly enough. I mean, they even HIRED a guy that the forums were in a rage about because of his cheating scumbag ways.

They are confident that we will keep shelling out the money no matter what we do, and that's why the champs are all 6300, IP got reduced, etc.

10-win would be much more appropriate than a weekend, as it appeals to many, many more players. I thought this was basic logic, but obviously Tamat lacks this.

Still with the "It's free" ****. Jesus, why did your father make so many stupid people? Was it a balance issue?

It was another reward that you had to be a fan on our Facebook page to qualify for. The technology that we were building to support this promotion broke with all of the recent Facebook changes, so we had to push the pause button so that we could get you a reward now.

I've decided to be generous to Riot here while I calculate the rough RP cost per person here. I'm using the most expensive IP win boost per day to work it out, and a baseline of a 50% win rate per player. Now, the price of the most expensive per day boost is 290 RP. That's for one day, and this event lasts 2.5 days. That's 725 RP. The average bonus we're taking as 50%, and this thing works at an equivalent rate of 34% (Because the per-win boost works 50% of the time but to a degree of 100%, while this works 100% of the time but to a degree of 34%). So, that's about 34/50, which is 0.68. Thus, this thing is the equivalent of Riot giving every player 493 RP. Assuming the most expensive price point for a per-day IP boost. I'd gladly take the "be a good summoner!" reward to this pitiful thing. 43 RP less, but I can spend it on something I actually give a damn about.
