^This.

And I'm sure that the newer updated terns with the new referral program were changed with self-referrals in mind. It seems this was a way to clear the slate, toughen the terms, and actually try to clean up some of the rampant abuse.

Riot laying down the law.

First banning 600 fools for exploit abuse. Now sending in Rara . . . whose avatar is Akali . . . whose champion title is the Fist of Shadow . . . for Riot . . . whose logo is . . . a FIST.

She's talking about people who have an abnormal amount (let's say 50+) of fake referral accounts they leveled up to 10 (5 on the old system) and then promptly abandoned those accounts. Don't get too paranoid.

But then I'll never get my Warwick Skin! Its not fair to have exclusive rewards that cannot be attained through any other means except by knowing a **** ton of people irl who will also be willing to download, play, and lvl up to lvl 10. IP and RP, as well as Bundles, or CONTENT THAT CAN BE PURCHASED are fine rewards. But exclusive rewards are not fair.

I'm still on 1.0. Will remain on 1.0 until I have Medieval Twitch. At which point I will gladly agree to never refer myself or repeated friends again >.>

I would agree with you on that it needs to be an abnormal amount, because lets be honest, im sure most of the people who play this pretty regularly have referred a smurf or two in the past...
