I can't wait to see what questions you and the team avoid.

I'd rather just see her released already. If she's really that anticipated, she should be released. This live AMA stuff should've been done a week ago. At the least very latest..

Imma tune in just to make sure it's not a trainwreck like the Tryndamere AMA.

I've noticed Riot is getting a LOT of flak for simply posting this statement. If this is ever read, I just want to say to those who think no one else cares, there are those who do. I am a Redditor and I know when the Narwhal Bacons and I am interested in this AMA.

I've never seen Riot do and AMA but if they're reading,
IAMA= I am a...
AMA= Ask me ANYTHING
AMAA= Ask me ALMOST anything

Its better to use the double A so people don't complain about you not answering any questions. Just a heads up

Other than that, i'm lookin forward to this IAMA

Performing an AMA is dece; I'll give them that. Unfortunately, she should be released if she frankly, "highly anticipated." Don't get me wrong, it's an awesome idea; if it was a week ago or maybe before she became playable on the beta. That's just my logic.

The problem isn't the terminology, it's more about the fact that all of these corporations (not only Riot, many others) hide behind the guise of an "AMA" (or whatever acronym you want to give it) when all it really is is a thinly veiled press-release and/or advertisement.

How this works is that someone in charge of marketing writes up a list of questions and answers, and then as they receive the flood of questions on the AMA-day, they cherry pick the ones that match up with the ones that have been scripted in advance and answer only those ones.

I don't want to hear about how great Riot is, and why I should stay loyal to their brand because of all the new exciting things that are coming for 2013, and how deep the lore is, and how much they care about story development, and blah blah blah. You see what I'm getting at? It's a ploy to push their brand onto us, and we're sitting there with open arms. Advertising has never been so easy, and it's all thanks to Reddit.

We should be putting them in the hot seat, getting the answers to awkward or difficult questions, but that will never happen because it goes against their agenda.

Take this however you like.

Thank you. While I'm actually looking forward to this AMA and any possible release of Diana lore that may come from it, I think this is a pretty fair critique of the way the system works. You're the only person in this entire thread so far who has given a valid criticism about it.

Live web chats with authors, etc. pretty much function the same way (I mean the ones backed by large publishing companies). A live panel might be the only real way for fans to get answers, but of course those are always subject to moderation.
