It would be great if we could all work together to be a better community than CoD's.
I'll give you that.

Only thing that annoys me is i purchased a 1 day IP Boost so its kind of going to waste right now...
I wonder if there will be a reimbursement or maybe they will extend it for a longer period.
I just hope that i didn't pay for nothing.

You don't own any other games? You can't go outside for an hour? You can't you know, be patient?
I understand the kids frustration. I don't really agree with it, but the servers have been pretty laggy lately. Ranked queues are disabled here and there, and disconnects in games and such.

Its a little selfish to come to the forums and chew out riot because their servers went down, but at the same time, they're a professional company that should have known that the servers would be flooded right about now. Any other company would be getting chewed out for a mistake like this. If the CoD servers went down for an hour during a double XP weekend, people would go ballistic on them. It would probably end up on the front page of a few newspapers.

They always extend boosts like that when the servers are down. Im sure they will do the same here.

I'm just saying that the way that you phrased this whole thing made it out like they were giving us some great and unbelievable gift. It's not the first time, and it certainly won't be the last (we can hope, because damn girl, you know I appreciate that ****) that they've done it. This is what I'm talking about, down here

They didn't HAVE to give every one double xp. You didn't do ANYTHING for it.
Also, don't group me in with them, because I feel entitled to jack ****. I am just as grateful as you do have been given the IP boost, and I am not complaining at all about the ques being down.

I think the best part is that the Riot post (http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...5#post33933115) about the issue received (at the time of posting) 230 downvotes for contacting the community that they knew there was an issue.

People complain about companies not talking to their player base, but this is what happens when a company does. We rage and downvote them for acknowledging an issue and giving us updates on how the problem is coming along? Yes, I realize downvotes mean nothing, but are you serious?

If you bought an actual boost and the servers go down, yes they extend it because you spent something on that. It's just when people are given things for free, they feel entitled to demand moar.
