But agreed, that Riot needs to clarify their prize. This is just plain ridiculous for Riot to go back on their words of giving the referrer the prize of "designing".

You may want to give all female workers a vacation while he's there.

Okay, whether Buckley is a good person or not doesn't negate the fact that he got 10k referrals, and is entitled to the rewards of getting that. The rewards page is a bit unintentionally misleading, but not outright lying, to people reading it. (Something saying "help us work on a champion in progress" would be more appropriate than what it already says.) So yeah, TimCAD got 10k referrals (which by the way means some people, not myself but others, clearly like him since there's no way he made 10k smurfs AND leveled them to 5 in the time he got to the number) and deserves to get his reward at some point.

And really, Spider Shark wouldn't be so bad of a concept. Personally I thought the idea sounded both funny and awesome. To those that question how a shark is on land, it is a *spider* shark. With legs. And presumably functioning land-walking-creature anatomy.

Who cares if people like him
Or not unless he breaks summoner code and be banned. He should be ablevto do what riot had listed for getting the referrals. Maybe it's more like giving suggestions and riot takes what will work.

For the record, the CAD artist/author understood that Riot wouldn't want a floating shark. He posted about this very thing. He did say that he'd work with his community of followers/fans to get design ideas.

Of course it's not a - "you get to drop whatever Champion you want in the game" type of thing =D. Our own designers don't even get to do that - it's a very collaborative process.

That being said, we're going to update the language on the page to clarify
so basically he can come watch and stfu cause ur gona ignore any ideas he might have anyway since it would be too late in the development process to change anything

[QUOTE=Lightstriker;10722752] Would you like the long list or the short list?

The Long version. With Sources, please.

"He's a Homosexual", is known as SLANDER or HEARSAY, at best.
"his comic isn't funny" is an opinion. (I think they're hit or miss. I feel the same about PA)

FACTS, please?

This game is free, and they are letting people come take part it in, for free. They are giving people a gift. Creating anything for a game this big takes a long time, and they're letting someone be a part of it, for free. If your ideas are good, they'll probably listen. If your ideas suck, Riot is protected. What is wrong with this?

And for the people just replying to the OP, go read Pendragon's response.

The pedophile **** is probably 100% meme. I don't even know who this guy is, but if he hit 10k, he should get his spidershark.
