About a year ago, last Thanksgiving, I was playing a more active role in the North American Wrenchmen Program with the Arbiters Program in a more secondary role. As the plans to have dedicated Rioters help out in the Help & Support sub-boards started to come to fruition, I began to pivot my focus to the Arbiters Program and the Player Behavior & Moderation sub-boards.
There are so many people I'd like to thank, but first and foremost, I'd like to thank the other volunteers in our different regional volunteer programs, from NA to OCE to EU. Their work in providing more insight, clarity, and engagement to players has been nothing short of amazing.
It should be no surprise that my next thanks goes out to Riot and the Rioters who have made this program possible. Working with Player Support specialists, NOC Technicians, Community Coordinators, and Project Specialists has been an absolute honor, and to be completely honest, has given me a lot of the perspective on the Player Behavior systems and Riot Games as a whole that I hold today. (Also, shoutout to my Recruiting Coordinator for giving me an opportunity to speak to her about my passions and experience, and then a further opportunity to speak with the team I'm applying to; hopefully I'll have good news to share at the end of this)
And finally, saving the best of the best for last, my deepest thanks to the League of Legends community. You guys have been amazing to work with. The Arbiters Program didn't have a perfect launch and the implications of the program weren't yet clear, but somehow things came together. Thank you for being patient with us, and thank you for your help in the Player Behavior & Moderation sub-boards. We're at a point where community members are able to step in and provide insight into the punishment escalation system, Leaverbuster, and the other PB systems. But most importantly, thank you for keeping us honest. There are times where I find myself speaking in defense of certain Riot policies or decisions, and a good number of you will passionately speak in favor or against of what I have to say. I do read your comments, and regardless of whether you agree or disagree, I respect what you have to say and give a lot of thought to it.
As a small token of our appreciation, we'll be giving away 5 mystery skins and Elementalist Lux. How can you snag a gift? Post a comment with something that you're thankful for (League related or not League related, doesn't matter) and a number between 1-1000! 5 of the skins will be given away randomly. Elementalist Lux will likely be given away if someone picks the right number, but I'll have a more definitive answer on the guidelines later. Winners for the mystery gifts will be selected at random times throughout the giveaway period, so the sooner you post, the better. The giveaway will close this Sunday at 11:59PM PST, when remaining recipients will be determined. Be sure to upvote!
And of course, to celebrate the diversity and inclusiveness of the Boards, all players in good standing from NA, OCE, EUW, and EUNE are eligible for gifts! :D
Happy Turkey Day!
Now where da heck is this skin?!?! (heh jk sorry if I offended any Anivia mains)
Anyone down for some games? League of Legends (pretty much most servers), Overwatch, CS:GO. Hit me up!
