They're ok. I harbor a resentment for them because in 3rd grade we had two hermit crabs in our class during some science unit. At the end of the unit, there was a lottery for which students got to take them home as pets. Three students entered. I was the one who didn't get a hermit crab.

I disagree with you strongly. Many reds have been attempting to move people to reddit, instead of just updating the forums.

There is a strong difference between a promise and tossing out ideas and opinions. The thing is most promises by reds are never kept, and when things change you don't tell us what's happening.

WizardCrab, I know it's COMPLETELY outside of your department, but is there a person or a team that is dedicated to Player Communication? Specifically, making sure that important news is heard by as many people as possible? Because if that's the case, then please tell them that posting only on Reddit does not in any way reach the majority of your player-base. I only knew that Tryndamere had posted something to the community, only knew about major LCS changes and events, and the whole e-mail verification thing because I visit Surrender@20. My friends knew nothing until I directed them to S@20. While I'm grateful that you guys keep us informed, please remember that there are, shockingly, people who don't use or go to Reddit... especially for official news from Riot. Thanks.

I also really want to know... what do you think about a Poro Champion being released?
Honestly, no specific plans that I know of. You can trust us or not. But it's really not in our best interest to make skins that our community doesn't want, you know?

3. Change of strategy that wasn't planned at the time. Honestly, people like the 1350 skins more. We have endless amounts of surveys and data to back this up.
4. I'm sure this was intended and we have a ton of lore that you guys don't know about. I know nothing about the plans to release it.
5. Change of strategy that wasn't planned at the time. We've already explained this in depth and I'm not going to go into it again here.
A "change of strategy" doesn't change the fact that the community was mislead from initial promises made by Riot; irrespective of whether or not it was planned at the time.

I feel like a lot of community issues could be solved here just by rioters posting. A lot of people, myself included, would like to have more chances to discuss things with you guys, be it balance, pricing, or just random stuff going on. You really don't even have to say anything of value, just talk to people and their opinions of Riot as a company will improve.

Just because the community likes 1350 skins more (because they are usually higher quality) doesn't mean that those of us on a budget wouldn't like to see some mediocre skins that are 520 or 750 instead of 1350.

My one-cent because too poor to afford two-cents

@Wizard crab. Why are you changing rengar's q to such a low duration you can hold it? I know the counter play was a bit low but common. He is an assassin.
