Are you planning to add lan authenticator to prevent this? Like the ones that blizzard or google use with their products.

Thanks so much for adding the gifting feature, I'm a person who loves to gift and it's brought me a lot of joy being able to shower my friends in skins! I can't wait till it's back in full form! <3

We get 10 extra days to gift people, but we can't even get a couple days of a grace period to gift our friends? My girlfriend has only been my friend on my account since the 14th, and the 11th, was the cutoff, what is so wrong about extending that along with this? not fair

What is your Summoner name on EUNE? I'll look into why you don't have your icon now.

I am curious about the Snowdown Icons. None have appeared for me and I have both purchased RP and gifted a skin to a friend. I also wonder if I was supposed to get the Santa Baron Icon and nothing is showing up (as I have strong honor numbers relative to my friends who have gained the Icon).

:/

That would be insanely awesome. Combine it with some kind of free skin (like Judgement Kayle) and make such authentificator nessesary in order to buy RP and stuff (like code on login AND on RP purchases and so on), that might be quite nice - I always wondered, why LoL doesn't has such security stuff, when it's THAT popular along with some exclusive stuffs (like some players think "hmm, they have dat skin, let's hack an sell dat acc", I could imagine such behaviour too well ...).

What's the opinion of Riot on that?

Still looking for a solution to my problem where I'm unable to gift a friend due to not being friends long enough, yet he's able to gift me things perfectly well.

A suggestion for the account hacks/scams - a secondary password that you don't have to type, but click the keys on the screen (probably numbers like other online games).

We hope to bring gifting back permanently in 2013 once we have evaluated its impact on account fraud and hacking, and taken any necessary additional steps to protect your accounts.
wait why would you take gifting out?
