Excuse me, Kitae, I don't like to be confrontational, and I know I'm quoting something that you said a week ago, but let me direct you to this post:

You can click the followthrough link to see the full post, but that was the important part. It was posted on the sixth of January this year.

When the person you were quoting was talking about what "you've been saying" I think it's pretty easy to assume that he's talking about what Riot as a whole has been saying rather than just you personally.

The bottom line is, whether it's been coming from you or other redposters (past and present), "we'll let you know soon" is something that lore fans have been hearing for a very, very, very long time, and it's just not an acceptable response anymore.

And as another poster in this thread already pointed out, there had been a lore blackout (no Journal of Justice issues) for several months already before that announcement by RiotRaven was made.

Wow, that was way ruder than I expected.
