Hello Riot Team!
I wanted to write a thank you note for the awesome game. I play Fiddlesticks as a general rule and have reached lvl 30, enjoying much of my time in the League.
I was wondering though, how do you guys "stay in business?"... Do people really buy that many skins?
And I was also wondering, why?
I don't want LoL to be pay-to-play, but it seems like you guys would make more money that way. Why do you supply such a fun game for free?

I will say that they do get quite a nice amount of money for new skins. Apparently this funding goes to new developers, as well. I don't know if they have any alternative funding, or why this game is free, but thumbs up because it still is.
