You guys don't understand what compensation is, do you?

com·pen·sa·tion/ˌkämpənˈsāSHən/
Noun:

Something, typically money, awarded to someone as a recompense for loss, injury, or suffering.


de·mand/diˈmand/
Noun:
An insistent and peremptory request, made as if by right.

Now tell me, if it's compensation do you have any right to demand it or what exactly you get?

GD seems to have the two very confused.

1. to give (something due), esp as a reward for merit: to award prizes


if you're demanding it and you are given it, then it wasn't being awarded to you. They gave it to you because you said to.

No, we don't have the right to ask for what we want, we do have the right to receive the same compensation as those that had different problems even though everyone had some type of problem. Also that definition for compensation fits in perfectly fine with what Riot did.

If my reading skills hold true, demand says "made AS IF by right." The OP went straight to assuming that demands require a right.

You don't have any rights to receive compensation. It's not required of Riot to give you it and you do not have a right to it.

That my friend, is the definition of having a false sense of entitlement. You believing that you should get something when you don't necessarily deserve it.

Also that definition for compensation fits in perfectly fine with what Riot did.

The people who lost their stuff didn't go on the forums and make a massive uproar. Riot said "oh, by the way we gave you guys 1000 RP. Sorry 'bout the inconvenience."

Which is why this point is being brought up. I'm not saying that they didn't compensate people. I'm saying that people are demanding RP.
