1. No account transfer - Do you seriously think I'm going to spend another 6 months and another 50$ on your game just so I get all the runes and heroes I have on my current account?

2. EU shop - Why would I want to pay 19% VAT buying stuff from the store on the EU version when I can get it without on the US version.

3. No restrictions to EU players playing on US - Considering what I said on #1, I'd say 90% of the people who made purchases from the riot store, will NOT want to start over on the EU version just for the sake of lower ping.

4. Open beta - Are you serious? Given all the 1-3 issues above, do you seriously think anyone at all will want to move to an open beta on EU?

So let's do an overview... you are offering... low ping (personally I would have around 30-40 with servers in Germany, which is great), and you expect people to trade off: many months of xp and ip, their entire "track record"/score, all the money they spent on the game, and a +20% (depends on EU country) VAT price increase on the store... ??? I have only one thing to say about this... LOL!
If you would have read the other thread put up before this you would know that they aren't taking away your skins RP IP unlocked champs. or lvl's.....

I srsly dont know what kind of lag people are experiencing, but i live in South Africa and get a ping of 300-500 and i can still play rather well i hardly notice that ping. So for me a change from US to EU is pointless cause the ping will still be 300-500. Ill just stay on US.

Also if i would want to stay on Us servers i just do nothing ? my account will stay in US?

Any news on the censoring of EU version? (for those who don't live in Germany and would like to scout bushes with Mundo or see blood)

No way that the lag is barely noticable with 500 ms? I notice the delays after reaching 300... it's annoying as hell having lag when trying to throw (for example) Morgana's Q.
