If he has 10k unique subscribers I don't see why he should be treated differently because it was easier for him, either way he introduced 10k people to the game.


But if he had people make smurfs to inflate that number, I am sure Riot will handle things accordingly.

He's not making a huge deal out of it. Why should you?

That however means that the concept itself is already pretty fleshed out.

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 in all honesty you either meant something else and failed to communicate it correctly (probably wasn't a big priority when the page was designed and made)

Or you just completely changed your minds and VIOLA!

Either way w.e. What're you gonna do? :<

She was 12. How is 12 not "sub 13"..?


I'm finding even from people who hate him that the girl was 17, and the photo surfaced years later. Although it seems reading through this thread that she gets younger and younger each time. It's scary to watch the internet work. Pretty soon she'll be a fetus.

If Riot already DESIGNED a preliminary model of a spidershark, then Tim could go DEVELOP it. Instead, he earned the right to develop whatever Yordle/Voidspawn/Girlwithbigboobs/etc that Riot is has already designed. The fact that he misread the reward is not Riot's fault (correction: it SHOULDN'T be Riot's fault, but we do live in a world where you can sue McDonalds for not telling you coffee is hot, so w/e ).

While I hate ol' Tim the Pedophile as much as the next guy, it seems really poor form to not really let them have a good bit more input than this.

Pretty rip deal imo. If you didn't want to have them make a champion, you shouldn't have said it. I think you just never expected anyone to hit 10k…

Let me him make a champion (obviously veto his more ****tarded ideas) and slate it 3-4 months out whenever you have an opening. Obviously that's not something your designers do. It's their jobs and they didn't refer 10k people.

You promised to let them make a champion, not when it would be released. Also, raise it to 50k so people stop actually achieving it.

Just because it says develop a champion does not mean you get to develop your own.

add another prize, 20,000 completely design your own champ concept, leave it to riot for balancing ETC, or let them save their 10,000 referral one so they can be there for virtually the whole thing
