Isn't it your job to produce revenue? Why should we believe you? Riot hasn't exactly proven it's integrity, and at the end of the day it's still a business.

Yeah, and you don't call this underhanded. Get the hell outta here.

This is NOT about a balance change.

Lol brings up another issue. Why exactly do we never get anymore tokens? Pretty sure most people have already blown their 3 already.

Are you ****ting me riot?
I guess you really want more people believing how unsympathetic this company is.
I usually don't like to hate on the company, but this policy of "no refunds even though we ****ed up," really pisses me off.
Scumbag Rito, my opinion of how ****ty you guys are being right now probably is felt by thousands of players right now, GG rito, never buying **** from you again.

This is basically like buying a broken phone from a store then going to return it and they say no.

No, you used balance change because that's what it was.

Pantheon has been the same since 2010. If his ultimate was a bug, that shows even worse incompetence in fixing issues than this debacle.

It was a "bug" that was integral to the champion, known about for years, left in the game, and then suddenly as a new skin comes out the "bug" is fixed unannounced with no mention until after his new skin has sold. And you're not giving refunds.

As far as the community is concerned and in light of all evidence it's intentional, and even if it wasn't it's absence from the patch notes when the champion is receiving so much attention due to a new skin represents laughable incompetence.
