But, really, one acronym sums it all up, LOL.
If you choose to not support Riot, that's fine, but don't insult those who do by calling this a "free game".

Or did you think that Riot pays the bills with retarded comments like yours?

I've paid over $300 worth of Riot points and my opinion isn't any more valid than someone who hasn't spent a dime.

It's a free game.

That you did.
It wasn't hardQuestioning isn't the same as throwing tantrums.

No, I'd blame shoddy parenting.
Then I guess Tamat didn't respond poorly to the dominion story thread, nor did he respond poorly to the 34% IP weekend complainers. It's not Tamat basically slapping us in the face at those times that made us lash out at him, it was our parents being incompetent and not raising us properly. To take it a step further, it's probably the fault of the parents of those parents, for not raising them properly and making them into stricter parents for their own kids. Everyone's at fault. Tamat is innocent!

There's a time and a place for tongue in cheek humor, and there's a way to respond to the community when it's upset about something. The way that Tamat responded to the community was inapropriate. In both situations the community had every right to complain, and their complaints were completely justified. Instead of dealing with the issue, Tamat put more fuel into the fire and the issues exploded into something that they wouldn't have otherwise.

If he can't muster up the self control to not respond to the community like this, then he shouldn't be interacting with it in the first place.

Putting words in peoples' mouths with sarcasm and hyperbole is just reinforcing my stance, Genericke.

But you're right, his response was unprofessional. Might I suggest he works at a kindergarten for a time so he gets a better idea of the level of people he's servicing?

No one was prevented from complaining. Unless you really thought that merely posting in that thread would opt you out of the bonus.

I thought Tamat's comment was kind of funny, personally.

Lies! It was a threat against your person! Don't you know that online attacks are a major cause of distress in youth? Tamat should sent to jail if someone commits suicide over this!

Not really dude, it was a forum response by Tamat that got people riled up. So for posting on a video game forum with video game questions, they're really no more a creep than you or me xP

A) Why does this even matter in the slightest?

B) What makes you think Tamat was fired?
