You wonder how easy it must be to get into Riot Games these days.

You are the first to make this observation. Nobody has commented on Opeli's Big Lebowski reference before. This is treading new territory on the Lore Forum.

It was a joke. And she explained. It wasn't a great explanation, but it was an attempt, at least. I'd rather Riot keep a semi-casual tone than coming in and saying "DUKES AND LADIES OF THY LORE FORUM, I HAVE ARRIVED TO FACILITATE DISCUSSION."

actually that would be pretty great.

somebody do that. RiotMercutio or something.

They're far from the first. There was a large conversation on RiotOpeli's Twitter earlier where she was confused by why people got so offended by the quote and had multiple people come in to explain why saying it was pretty much the worst possible opening to her presence on the forums.

Unfortunately that conversation eventually descended into a couple people making rape threats, so the attempts to make Rioters see that the current state of communication between players and developers is Not Okay (tm) got sabotaged.

The "You are the first" bit was sarcasm, we've had a ton of posts about it. And yeah, the Twitter meltdown is probably the most heinous thing about all this. We've got a lot of people making really good points as to why we should keep the old Lore, or, if it has to be removed, giving advice on how to make the new one proceed smoothly and feel more in tune with players, but a few bad apples ruin the bunch.

If the relationship between Narrative and its most hardcore fans had been better, then that would be a valid sentiment. It's not the case in both instances.

Has the whole forum gone CRAZY? AM I THE ONLY ONE HERE WHO GIVES A **** ABOUT THE LORE?

Nope. Still doesn't work.

That was not the first time she's interacted with these forums. She's posted here before quite a few times, iirc. I think she felt comfortable enough to communicate with lore fans on an informal basis, which led to her joke and the ensuing hullabaloo.

It was the first time ANY Rioter posted in this subforum in several months. The subsequent posts from her were apologies of her quote and other statements.

The Dev Blog and some conversation on the Beta Boards gave her some confidence to post here. However, she forgot how brutal and hostile this subforum became (thanks mostly to Narrative's silence and lack of recognition of their hardcore fans).

So, she made a flippant joke and said "it felt pointless to talk." Needless to say, it blew up in her face, but going on Twitter and misconstruing what happened didn't help her at all.
