Who would be for or against Riot deleting Lolking?

Edit- Obviously you can't 'delete' a third party site. Valve didnt do that either, they just withheld all the data needed to run the site. RIot can do the same thing, basically destroying LolKing.

Lolking is a desperate site and is out of reach from riot. They can't simply revive it Lol it's not their website :P

Valve didn't delete anything, they merely added an option to disable 3rd party sites being able to collect players statistics.
