Tryndamere's a pretty cool guy, and I'm glad he is.

Didn't actually answer his question, did you?

Again, didn't actually answer his question. Is the ability to read and comprehend what you read not a requirement to be a riot employee? The example you just set leads one to believe it is not. I totally get that an answer along the lines of "they cost the same because people spend RP on them anyway so why would we change anything, we are a company out to make a profit?" isn't a very "community centric approach", but at least it's an honest answer.

We'll give you a half point for this one.


Look Marc, I totally get you want to take a community-centric approach, my question is do you think answering questions like a politician does during a press conference is really a "community-centric approach"? You avoided accepting the premise of the question and answered a question that wasn't asked who's premise you were willing to accept.

Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but wouldn't taking a "community centric approach" mean you would have, you know, answered his actual questions. What you did was worse then what the ambassador did. You criticized the ambassador for not answering questions and then proceeded to not answer the questions yourself. Were you showing him/her how he/she should to give a non-answer-answer?
Except what you used as the answer for Point 3 was actually very relevant to the 4800 IP part..

This is what makes LoL the only f2p game I'm actually willing to spend money on.

Because we're human and have been busy building the company to spread LOL around the world to enable awesome global tournaments and hiring lots of talented developers to help improve the game.

But - someone in the thread recommended doing a regular Q&A session - and we're going to get that going, so hopefully that will help!

Proof RIOT cares: The freakin' President was up until 10 PM talking to us on a Monday night, and he's already back at 8 AM the next day.

Trynd, not that I (and everyone else here) don't appreciate you responding a lot to all of these questions. But as president of Riot Games I would assume that at 8AM you would have quite a bit of work to do. What would your mother say if she knew you were delaying your workload to talk to your friends online?
