Replays: they updated the launcher months just to support it... and that was the last we heard of it
The patcher was reworked so that working on Replays would be possible. Riot was not working on the actual replay system until the new patcher was created.

Observer Mode: They had it working at Dreamhack... where is it?
Spectator mode is still under construction. It isn't out yet for a few reasons.

-Riot got a lot of feedback on what people liked/didn't like about spectator mode when they previewed it at Dreamhack. They have been working on incorporating this feedback and making spectator mode better.

-Riot needed to make a new version of spectator mode that has special UI for the Dominion game mode. They want people to have a fully functional and uniquely tailored spectator mode for both Dominion and Classic mode upon release.

-Riot is working on scaling issues. While its mostly done they want to make sure the infrastructure is in place so that it can scale to the hundreds of thousands of concurrent users.

Project Shiny: do people even remember what this is? ( there was a red post 5 months ago saying they had made a major breakthrough in it... last i heard of that.
Honestly not sure. I've seen multiple Reds talk about big breakthroughs in it, but there have been no new screenshots or information. Would really like to see an update on it.

Magma Chamber: rofl.
Shelved so that Riot could focus on the Dominion game mode. Here is a good post explaining that decision - http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...7#post12466087

Also as a note: When Magma Chamber's was originally teased all we saw was one piece of concept art. At that point in time that piece of concept art was basically the only work done on it. Riot was announcing beggining work on a new map, not that one would be out soon. They learned from their mistake in announcing it so early, and that is why we are finding out about Dominion so close to release.

Do you think riot is just making another empty promise or will they finally deliver.
This is just silly. Dominion is fully playble, and we've seen videos of the gameplay. I've talked to Riot employee's who have played it and love it. There is an entire sub-website dedicated to it. The full game-mode will be playable by anyone attending Gamescon or PAX. Dominion mode is coming out.

While you are joking it stands to say that Dominion will be completely free to play and accessible to everyone, with no rune, level, or champion restrictions.

Unlike magma chamber they're actually showing it off with all sorts of media like videos and tutorials on how the game is working. The videos show the gamemode and map are DONE and ready to be released soon. Not only that but they're actually a demo at PAX and such

Please friends, don't you realize that Riot is busy working on new champions around the clock so they don't have time to follow through with stable reliable patches or balancing changes? I mean, with the amazing releases of competent champions like Skarn, Wu, Leona, and Yorick, where would they find time to work on any game play issues? Moreover, as they need to churn out new champions with each patch to continue their transparent money search (also did anyone else notice the current bump in Skarn's bundle prices compared to previous champs?), which is much much more important than balancing their current champions or improving game play............................................

Oh wait... I just remembered that with each patch there is normally significant gameplay issues and that the past champions have been pathetic in terms of balance and integration (how many decent Skarns have you seen in the past week? Anyone else dodge when you see a Wu and a Skarn lock in?).....

Bumpin just cuz Riot needs to pay more attention to balancing their game and building it up rather than simulating a trailer trash mom pushing out welfare babies...
