I was curious about this as well once and Pendragon said that when the servers go down, a mob of users come check the forums for a status update, therefore putting a strain on the forums as well.

Because when the game goes down, 2 million angry nerds join the forums to check wtf has happened, thus over saturating the website.

Hurr durr.

I'm not trying to antagonize you, but could you not have just said that from the get go?

Do you need to be in a high ranking position at RIOT to have an OP Champion as your portrait?

Well I guess look at it from this perspective...

You'd read a thread, and each post would have to download each poster's avatar picture on top of what they download already. So I would have to say that yes, it could add an additional strain on the server the forums run on. I believe once you have someone's avatar pic once, it should cache it though. Regardless at this point the forums occasionally have issues with high traffic volumes, I would venture that you're (Riot) not looking into adding additional strain until the forums can handle it imho.

Thought it would be cool to recognize people easier via avatar was all. Make the community a little more individualized.( Would that even be a good thing lol?)

I really hope they end up putting in custom avatars. It's always weird when I look at my posts and it doesn't have my usual avatar pic.
