Its a group of hackers who are incredibly tech savvy and have permeated the Riot offices. I believe they were responsible for the server downtime yesterday im pretty sure it was a denial of service attack

well that makes sense since the thread regarding RTG appeared yesterday as well, the day the servers abruptly went off line with no warning.

This is about the 3rd post I've seen about this and RIOT has yet to answer any post while they jerk off on other posts, this is getting irritating

Honestly though, how DARE we expect you to put in an absolute minimal amount of effort to try and remedy the situation!

I commented on the first one with info on them and both my posts got removed with no record, good thing i left the tab open and noticed it was gone, oh and ever since I've posted **** about them I've gotten trolls in my games that I give advice to and they do the opposite and tell me i will feed til u stfu. Then i leave and they tell everyone to report me

Curiosity. Has anyone tried something like peerblock to stop this? Granted, it is a slight hastle to use while playing league, seeing as how you'll have to allow the server-IP through as soon as the game begins to load, else your league will crash.

Just a thought.

holy **** if this is true it makes me not want to play till it's fixed. I would really hate for this to happen to me

Is there any proof or evidence that this is actually happening to people, until I see something concrete (a screenshot or something official-like) I will have to remain skeptical, because it is a lot easier for a few friends to troll the league forums than it would be for someone to accomplish a hacking feat such as the one described here in this thread. But please, if you have proof let's see it.
