Most everything being free, or obtainable by playing the game, I would assume that Riot doesn't make much money. However, if there wasn't a profit the game probably would have been shut down by now. Soo.... how do you guys make money on this game?

Some people give money to companies they want to see thrive even if they don't have to. I know, crazy, right?

I support Riot, for the most part, so I shell out Riot points for a skin every now and then.

Micro-transactions have proven to be an extremely successful business model for games i.e. Farmville.

Often players will spend more money on League of Legends than a normal game simply because they dedicate SOO much time to it. You figure, you play 10-20 hours a week (I see a bunch of people online for that much) over the course of a year, and it is worth money in people's eyes. The truth is that it is worth any amount of Riot Points you may shell out when compared to a single player game you played for 15 hours and never touched again.

I don't doubt they make money, to the people stating about they make more money than i think they do. I was just wondering how it was obtained. Riot points was the answer.
