@Riot: Why do you ignore quality threads on the forums...

...while posting in threads like "You wake up, turn on LoL, and see you're unranked in everything. What do you do?"?

This is completely self-promoting, but look at http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=471694&page=52. It's at 600 upvotes, over 500 replies, and would make Riot a DEFINITE $1000, not to mention people that haven't confirmed a purchase.

Riot, this is the only thing you've ever done that's frustrated me. The holiday RP ****, the Perseus Pantheon disaster...none of it bothered me. But this is straight up ignoring easy profits and a steadily growing part of your community. Why?

They read the forums often. Actually, most of them probably Alt-Tab between the game and the forum threads.

You want them to lie to you? You want them to give you a pat on the back? Sometimes they do, sometimes they won't. No need to cry about it.


Anyways, they're probably busy making moar Teemo skins.

Riot can post in whatever thread they darn well want. You can't tell them what they can or can't do on their own forum. If they feel like they want to post on a fun thread, then they certainly can whether you want them to or not.

Also, Riot gives helpful advice and explanations on many threads. But people repeat the same questions so much, they probably get tired of repeating themselves to people who don't know how to use google filters.

Reading =/= replying

all everyone on that thread wants to know is if riot plans to make that skin or not

That was a bad example but I agree with you for the most part.

A skin suggestion is hardly a request for advice or explanations. If Riot wants to pass on the chance for a great skin that has a huge community following, then they can do it if they want to. We just want to know.

It'd be nice if they would at least respond, for one. It seems like that would be a more valuable investment of time than responding to every single nonsense thread on here.

They don't have to follow any suggestions, because it's their game. And how do you know the skin suggested isn't in the works? Riot has released community-suggested skins before and not said a word of it until they were released.

Again. it's their game and their forums. They can do whatever the hell they want and you can't stop them. If you don't like it, go make your own game/forum or make your own custom skin based on the suggestions in Maya or Blender. No-one's stopping you.

Because responding to a sona skin request is a commitment.
