Can anyone give me a link to where it says he got all this? That doesn't make any sense... someone pushing that hard would make Riot a lot of money. Why would they throw away that opportunity?

Bad analogy.

This is more along the lines of...A EPL star coming to the MLS, and getting a bigger bonus, contract, and even taking a jersey from an already existing teammate, all for free, without ever even playing a single game in that league.

Its entertainment, not a job. A mechanic performs a service, and better service calls for more money. No matter how good you are at this game, it will never be a service to the community. Just like sports and recreation.

And it's what he does for a living, how he makes his money, and is his job.
It is a job, whether or not it is a service to the community (although how you can say that entertainment isn't a service to the community boggles me).

This is generating a lot of PR for Riot. He's a large name in several games and he is giving them free PR.

Wow. Thanks

However, couldn't this be a pretty easy photo shop?

Giving him free IP and RP costs Riot nothing, yet they get free advertisement from it to other gaming communities such as HoN. While I don't agree with it, I can see why they did it.


we could care less about how much it costs right, im pissed cause i actually I had to spend money to get my ****, I actually had to play my way to get my runes, unfair advantage and its embarrassing on riots part how out of touch they are with their community.

I also know several people who have over 500k IP/RP. Those WCG players. I don't know what's the big deal is.
