The people who said things are now going to get a stern talking-to.
I, and i'm sure many others, are very appreciative that you actually took the time to clear this up. Thanks karrie!

Don't worry, you are not going to see us clam up, or stop expressing how excited we are! That is a permanent part of our culture, its just going through some growing pains =)
Coo, Don't clam up! Whats going on with Magma Chamber? The entire community wants to know if this is just a myth and if we will EVER get new maps for 3v3 and 5v5.

Awesome! It's so great that you people do interact with the community as much as you do. I'm excited now because you're telling me to be excited, and I trust you because of that community interaction: you know what we want.
Also, great name! ;D

do they have to? I'm glad they did this; Riot cares about its community so much that just telling us about their newest, coolest project is this exciting for them. I'm glad they did it, and I (who had been briefly considering leaving...or at least playing less) will definitely be sticking around a LOT longer.
long live the LoL!

...*twitch* No, people did not promise something released this week. they said something really cool was happening, that they were excited for this week. people inferred this meant something released this week. Not once did anyone imply that something specific was being released. >.<! This IS something really cool and something to be excited about that was announced this week. Nothing they said was a lie, not implied misleading things. For the love of god, don't punish them because stupid people set up their expectations before they had any knowledge of what the hell it was.

Dominion is honestly a pretty big deal for MOBA games, so Rioters did have reason to be excited.
This. This is what I've been saying at every chance.
