This is a one time time thing. 1350 skins won't become a thing.
*several months later*
We are changing skins to represent their effort put into them.

Well, as long as you say "IMO blah blah blah" and stuff I think it should be fine for the most part. I mean, your job is pasted next to your name. And of course sometimes someone will misunderstand at some point, but why should that stop you from posting?

Plz, these forums need more love from Riot in general, just pop on in whenever.

I agree! The only problem is that when Riot posts a lot on the forums here, people take it for granted. Riot used to post a lot here, and back then, they would get persecuted more often than not for posting. Perceived flaws in the game warranted insults to Rioters; mistakes said by Rioters or any inconsistency in their long-term decision-making resulted in entire threads full of hate. Look at the Olaf rework thread against Scarizard. He even said after that that he would not do that approach again because it was such a bad experience for him

If people were to show Rioters basic respect, respect that is due any person in most contexts, they may have never left in the first place. I can't really blame them that they are looking for new venues, or withdrawing in general on the communication front.

I shall remember you said this, and wake you at 3am! No but it'll be a lot of fun for sure. Hope we can work something out soon!

As for the bits about people taking your words as gospel I can see the frustrations with that. I imagine a lot of it comes down to not shooting the messenger.

I may not be an employee, but if there is anything you guys feel that we can do to help please let us know. I'm pretty passionate about this community - even with the bad and ugly tangling up the good.

And now for the non-topic question of the millennium - did you get anything good from santa?

Yo WizardCrab, any chance we're ever going to see a Crab Wizard champion? Because that would be awesome.

Or a Crab anything champion. Crabs are cool.
