This thread is just manipulating data to influence public opinion. And it's doing it poorly at that... Riot is growing larger and richer, but its production is decreasing, as a couple other posts pointed out. That is unacceptable and illogical.

I believe most of this money is going into esports. Riot thinks this is a great tradeoff because they get to say they have a huge esports program, but that is at the expense of the game and the experience of the entire non-pro playerbase. We're unsatisfied, and that isn't sustainable. League is going downhill.

They are trying to rebuild their infrastructure so that they can update the software all at once. Tryndamere noted this on Reddit when he rampaged through multiple threads near the beginning of January. Thus the multiple new Servers in new Regions, as well as new centers in EUW and plans for new setups in NA by 2015.

There are issues inherent, yes. But I'm tired of seeing only RIOT is ****. I wanted to point out what they have done, since no one else seems to.

If you don't like it why don't you go make your own game company, with blackjack, and hookers?

I was especially impressed with the reworks. The amount of thought and effort put into them made half of them seem not like brand new champions, but even better: The champions I loved, given a fresh new start!


My hats off to the rework team. They deserve it.

Where's all the things that should have been before all that useless ****?
Replays are in the works, supposedly. Map skins would be an enormous amount of work and testing, and are probably not worth it unless they were something the majority of the player base wanted. Rune changes are coming soon, though honestly, I can't imagine why anyone would ever be eager for them.

Thank you. I wanted to compile a list, because I seem to remember Riot doing a lot in 2013, despite pop0ular opinion.

Riot's production is going down, DESPITE an increase in everything on the left side of the Balance Sheet.
you degree in finance has failed you. basic economics will teach us the law of diminishing returns. the more you put into said business/gov't/etc the less efficient it will be. so the more money and manpower riot puts into LoL, the less efficient it is; this **** is not linear. if x was riot's production in 2012 and they became 3 times as big with 3 times as many employees in 2013, they will not produce 3x the content. would just like to point this out before you steer people in the wrong direction with utterly false facts

Sigh... This is why I hate GD. It's filled with little kids that feel entitled to more than they deserve. I for one am glad that Riot has done so much last year. I honestly believe improving servers and adding more around the world to ensure that the replay system doesn't leave us playing with 500+ ping is more important than rushing it; but hey, it seems a lot of people on GD believe Rome was built in a single day.
