I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for breaking the fantasy world people live in, but tell me. Where did Riot intentionally lie, or break a promise, about the Dominion release date?

The only date I remember them giving wasn't even an exact date. They said "Shortly after PAX is the goal."

That "date," if you could call it that, was subject to interpretation. However, it was not saying "for sure in August/September" like some people read it to be.

While Riot may be getting a lot of hate for not giving an exact date, you can't call them liars when they didn't even promise an exact date to begin with.

Plus, all the talk about "Riot said would be out with Riven / patch after riven / etc." is pretty much all speculation, as I have not seen legit proof that anyone from Riot actually said this.





As an aside, it's also decently humorous to see the people with the highest expectations instantly swap to the lowest expectations as far as a Dominion release date goes. I mean, people instantly went from saying "would come out August 29th" to flipping out and saying "will never come out."

I don't think this problem would arise if Riot just stopped saying soon for everything they plan on releasing. They said that with magma chamber and that was LAST YEAR. They need a new vague release date like "it will be done when it's done" or something.

I agree with you on that. I mean, "soon" in and of itself has grown to be quite vague, but is still implied as quite an early time, due to the literal meaning of the word. Yes, though, nothing says that Riot can't use other terms, no matter the ambiguity.

You obviously didn't read my post, I was actually trying to make a bit of ground against those type of people.

Thank you, however, for proving my theory that only a fraction of people would bother to read more than the title of my post.

Well JB2X lied saying that it was coming out on the next date.

though it could also be interpreted as in the next coming one, not this one.

Honestly, it is possible that the image is a fake.
