Good to know this spin is the stated, community-facing sentiment. I really hope for the best for your employees -- its their passion and quirkiness that makes this game as amazing as it is. Anything that might threaten that integrity -- as you saw with the Pantheon-gift-disaster -- is cause for concern.

Congratulations!

Greetings Summoners,

I am very excited to share with you some news from Riot Games. Today we're announcing that Tencent, one of our international publishing partners, is taking a bigger investment in Riot Games. What that means for all of your is that we will now have more resources to develop, grow and support League of Legends.

We have been working very closely with Tencent, since before beta and they are now taking a majority stake in Riot Games because they share our passion for supporting our community and improving League of Legends.

What this means to Summoners is that we will have the resources to build more features and add more content to League of Legends, nothing will change except us being able to deliver more awesome to you and faster! The Riot Team is going to continue our work on League of Legends, and continue hiring more people to join us so we can serve you better.

Thank you for your continued support!

I thought you said earlier that money wasn't holding you back from giving us features.

I'm scared by TenCent holding a majority share.

I'm stoked that you've risen so far. To fall under an umbrella corporation is kind of the goal of a budding gaming company.

I just really hope Riot keeps the same talent they've collected so far. I'd miss you guys. n___n'

Hang on... so it's just an investment and not a takeover?

I am so relieved! I was worried that this game would become Pay2Win or some other form of customer torture thing...
