Singed.

Haven't been here in a while, but I still fully support Riot and League of Legends. We got your back bros.

SOPA must have been what the Mayans saw for 2012...What can us Canadians do to help? Write to the US Embassy, maybe? (+1 Riot, Bring on the blackout if its the only way we can protest with an impact, lets do it!)

Hello Congressman? That was not something I expected to see today.

Thank you for your service, and for your support!

Bump for a good cause.

Also I now wish I lived in Colorado. Props to Rep Polis.

It'd be a pleasure to play with you anytime good sir!
He actually has been a League of Legends player since before it was cool.... About 1 month after we launched the game in North America. I met him on an airplane headed into Denver -- I was flying to LA via Denver, and he was returning to his district I believe.

The conversation went something like:
Me: "What do you do?"
Him: "I'm in politics. How about you?"
Me: "Game design."
Him: "Any games I would've heard of?"
Me: "You wouldn't have heard of what I work on now, but I used to work on WoW and War3"
Him: "Oh, I used to play Warcraft 3, but I play League of Legends now."
Me: "Hah, I'm the design director on that."

Pretty amazing random meeting.

So, since this isn't your first account name, who do you usually play under?
Wouldn't it be craaaaaaazy if he were Renekton Bot?

Congressman Renekton Bot.... I feel a skin idea coming on!

With how humble you were being in regards to thinking of League of Legends as something "he wouldn't have heard of", the event must've really opened your eyes to exactly how prolific the game and its community have become from its tiny roots. Granted the growth of the Riot office itself is a testament to such, but to have such an event happen out there in the wild like that must've been a total "Woah" moment for you.

SOPA = fascism.

I thought US was the land of freedom.
