Riot needs a dictionary to know what 'Shortly' actually means.

Actually, do you know what Shortly/Soon means when it comes from the mouth of a game company?

So much time.

The words shortly and soon are ambiguous words that are subject to interpretation.

Sorry but you can tell yourself they don't really mean anything all you want but 6 weeks after Pax is not 'soon' or 'shortly'.

'Soon'/'shortly' could mean any variety of things, especially in software development, especially when you take into account the entire length of time spent on any one project.

In the gaming and technology world, thing tend to go REALLY fast. That's why we assumed that shortly meant 2-3 days, maybe a week.

If you think about it, If i bought a new PC just before PAX, it would be almost outdated today. That was a really long time in the computer world... Riot should have said that their interpretation of shortly was considering the age of the universe instead of using the word as almost everybody expected it to be use.

So what did it mean when Zenon said "Immediately after PAX"?

I'm getting tired of waiting for all the **** coming out this fall/winter. Torchlight 2 pushed back, Diablo 3 comes when hell freezes over. Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Assassin's creed all over a month away. And being very honest here - if Dominion clashes with any of those 5 games, Dominion loses my time. Sure I'll come back and play it after I'm finished with those 5, but it will be a year+ in the future.
