: Be aware that Korea has the tradition of bribing referees (they admitted bribing referees during World Cup 2002, similar things happened in the 2018 winter Olympics in Pyeongchang). They probably did not need to do so before as LCK dominated the world. However, this year, LPL is challenging their domination. We do want a fair tournament. Please make sure everything is fair. (Make sure referees are fair, equipments are fair, internet connections are fair and stable for all the teams) Thank you!!! Enjoy the worlds everyone.
World cup 2002 is the most corrupted fifa tournament in the history of the game. There is no better way to describe South Korea play-offs games as dirty and unfair.

I've received 2 skins for the champions that I had 3 skins for each.
: ##Edit: Even if you disagree with the reasoning below, don't downvote me too much! I want more people to see our honest response to this question. This orange essence thing is a spicy one but I'll take my best shot at addressing it. The most honest answer it comes down to is that we wanna be able to spread out orange essence type loot and rewards across multiple systems without having to take an additional huge revenue hit at the same time that we're making runes free. I'll explain what I mean. Basically, when we first started giving out skins and stuff through the loot system, the only way you could get it was by 1) paying for it or 2) earning it through the mastery chests. Going into 2018 you're also gonna get skin content through things like events and honor (lets call them "orange shards" since we're really talking about anything that can be disenchanted into orange essence). We lowered the disenchant rate on shards, and we're giving out more shards. So that's what I mean by spreading it across multiple systems. I think we'll actually have to wait and see whether players feel that the additional shards from the other systems make up for the disenchant rate changes. Preseason shipped with some other upgrades to loot like bad luck protection and chances for double drops in chests, and I think we'll have to wait and see how that feels for players before we'll know. Now, there's another question implied here, which I think also bears addressing: **"Why can't Riot just give us more orange essence and more shards?"** The answer is that we make money on League through RP sales, and we want to be really responsible about how much we cut into RP sales when giving away stuff. Giving away skins and cosmetics through our in-games systems is something we have to manage really carefully—if it becomes to easy to earn orange essence and shards, RP sales would go down a lot (why pay for it when you can just get skins for free?). Even though League is free to play, we do need to make money and manage it responsibly so we can reinvest it back into the game. That's why making cosmetics too easy to get for free would be irresponsible for us, as a business. I know it's hard to get excited about an explanation like this, but I hope it makes sense! ##ONE MORE LONGISH EDIT TO CLARIFY A POINT: **I don't want to make the promise that the orange essence amounts you get will “even out” or be the same as before.** There’s way too much variance in the rates that people get OE from mastery and all the other systems for us to say that with a straight face. And the truth is the nerf to OE disenchant rates was significant. It’s more than we reigned it in to give ourselves wiggle room with these other systems. And honestly, the revenue hit from making runes free was a factor we considered as part of that. The goal is to make rewards systems that feel meaningful, rather than just constantly increasing the amount of stuff we give out every year because player expectations keep rising. It feels icky when we start talking about protecting revenue and budgets and shit, but we’re open to feedback on this stuff. I see basically no one talking about the double drops or bad luck protection that we already added to the system, so I wanna wait for a while for people to get used to the changes.
To be able to obtain your "free skin shards", players should spend time to complete missions. In this case, riot is not losing on anything. You make kids to play your game "for free stuff" more often. Eventually, if players decide to stick around, they will spend on RP (true story). I liked old system more. You paid for cosmetics or simple pass on them.

: Frequently Asked Questions About the Upcoming Leveling and Rewards Changes
> We understand that it can feel bad to have something you paid for suddenly become free for other people, and that's why we're giving folks who spent on runes back in the day the blue essence amounts we [announced in Riot Pls](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yq2i6RDmbNc). But we also have to focus on using our resources to reinvest in the game. We think that giving a little something back (rather than a full refund) strikes the right balance for players today and in the future. correct me of I am wrong, you will refund 100% of what we spent on runes in 2017, but ~20% in 2010-2012? Like it was the same to grind IP back then? Seriously?
: Complete Guide to Invasion : Onslaught, to all extents (S+ On all 5 core missions obtained)
: We decided to set the return rate for the overall system rather than individual runes because that way it's easier for you to count out how much you'll be getting back. Just count all your regular T3 runes X 100BE and all your T3 quints X 300. We could've gone through and set lower rates for 200IP runes and higher rates for the most expensive ones but it all would have been just a sort of complicated way of getting at the same result.
But somehow we managed to "count" how much IP we are losing. Wouldn't it be easier to refund 100%? I am positive it would've been easier to calculate :) We were forced to invest in runes to be relevant on SR. New players who didn't have time to invest much in runes, they wouldn't care.
: RIOT, I really wish you cared more about the RGM and ARAM
they also should increase required amount of champions owned. Playing against premade aram accounts is extremely unfair.
: Ah hell... I guess I'll jump in here because I'm a little confused by the post and I want to understand y'all's perspective better. One thing I'd like to understand is that it seems like this is a reaction to multiple changes: runes becoming free, the new leveling system, and a more general feeling that maybe Riot just doesn't show that we care enough about veteran players. You mentioned in the headline something about "30 chests," but we said we aren't going to do that because the new chests system is just a replacement for the IP you get after games now—you've already gotten the IP for all the games you've ever played, so there's no reward that veterans are missing out on as a direct result of the leveling system change. Does that make sense? You're also pitching this idea as being "in lieu" of the rune rewards we're doing, but I think that doing this idea instead of the rune rewards would be unfair to people who've spent the most on runes. The point of the runes rewards we're giving out isn't to "reward veterans" in a general sense; the point is to take care of people who spent IP on runes and give them a little back as a way of saying "thank you" for using a system that we're now changing. It's not even meant as a refund, because remember, we're just replacing the current system with a new and better one. Those things aside, **it seems to me that what you're really saying with this post is that Riot should do more to show that we care about veteran players. **If that's really what you're trying to get at, I'm with you. I'm not sure I agree that we should just haphazardly hand out skins to accounts just because they've played a game a couple of times per season (after all, that was never the deal when you made your account—you play games for fun and because you want to, not because we promised to give you skins for free). But I'm interested in hearing more about what y'all think we could do to better recognize veterans generally. Does it have to be just random piles of rewards, or is there some better ways we can give veterans to express their longstanding status? Sorry for the long post. I'm just genuinely interested in digging into some of these nuances with you guys.

I have RL friends on 2 different servers since s1 and, at this point, most of them log in a couple of times per year just to play 10+ ranked games and that's it. I don't think they deserve much. However, you have a huge database on players like these. Riot could easily dispense them based on different criteria like games/day with a certain threshold. Similar to what you did to icons to commemorate old honor system (it sounds generic, but I can't really come up with a better idea at this point). In terms of rewards, I personally would prefer limited stuff. What you are doing with urf Warwick is great, but this skin is way too pricey for longtime casuals. Should be an easier way for old farts.

I like the idea (who wouldn't?), but there's too much swag. Unfortunately, Riot will never do this kind of gift. 1 icon per season, sounds more realistic :(

: Aye, it's a huge number on its own, but when compared to the Millions of players there is in total, the ratio is rather small. Personally, I can't fathom how only 12% managed to get it, because it feels like a much higher percentage have it, judging by my friendslist...
well, that's the point. Bigger the number, these 12% carry higher amount of players. ~240k icons in circulation can't be rare in my book. i just found this icon on my smurf account, so it's quite common to say at least. In my opinion a couple of season 2 icons are extremely rare. Riot used to give special icons for solo, 5v5 and 3v3 map. I don't think I've ever seen 3v3 and 5v5 s2 diamond icons.

I think it was about 12% (globally) who managed to achieve it.
: Let me answer your question with a direct quote from Riot Games: >Fuck you.
: I get that it's a meme to hate icons right now, but honestly in this case it's probably an appropriate way to go. Side note: there is a team at Riot working on making icons more interesting as collectibles. I can't say more than that now, but it could be that icons feel more valuable in the near-ish future.
I understand people who collect icons. Everyone has his or her fetish, but why you force **everyone** to buy them in mission bundles? I don't mind spending rp to access certain missions, so please remove stuff that I don't need. I feel terrible when I purchase icons and ward skins for RP because %99 of the time i use only 1! It already feels disappointing getting them from hextech chests.

Lance and Hecarim's Q? Makes no sense to me.
: Not worth the 10 gems, at most 5 gems in it's finest day, Riot should stop this "10 gems tag price" crap, and start considering 3, 5, 7, and 10 gems worth of skins ! Like skin in the shop vary in it's price, it should be the same in loot. You can't equal this garbage with hextech annie. Another garbage skin...Pax sivir is an example of a 520 RP worth skin with no ability or animation skin or anything, that should only worth 3 gems at most.
PAX Sivir is going to be limited. I'd spend 10 gems on her rather than on any other mystic skin, especially this new garbage. I mean, like it's the worst Hecarim skin and the weapon makes no sense at all.

True, this skin is unique in many ways. However, it can be purchased for 10 gemstones for 4 months similar to hextech Annie, Dreadnova Darius and etc. Those skins can be obtained by mystery gifting and re-rolling 3 skin shards, so what about Sivir?

: Damn, ECON 101 just came rushing back real fast. This is fair feedback, and you make a solid point about the marginal value. Our argument for doing things this way is basically an economic one. The question is while we're making one huge part of League's economy (runes) free, will players understand if we keep other non-essential systems (pages) paid? If the overall change is a net positive, does it feel like a fair deal? Really appreciate you guys for bringing strong arguments in here by the way.
Will a random mystery skin ruin LoL's economy? If you give me a mystery skin for my "RP rune pages", I would be completely fine with that. Man, I remember riot used to give one away or made deals such as "buy 5, get 1 free". I am positive that you can figure something out without hurting your budget. No icons please.

: Just replying real quick regarding the Volibear skin + Chroma: Don't mistake Runelord Volibear for Rune_**guard**_ Volibear (975 RP). http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Volibear/Skins _Don't worry, I had to check too._ Unless there's a spelling error going on, Runelord Volibear is something no one has ever seen before. But I agree on one thing: Volibear doesn't mean much towards the history of runes (also, just because the Volibear skin isn't previously released, doesn't mean it's any good - a conspiracy theory can be made on just laziness from Tencent on that one). If not Ryze (not only because I don't like him - nor Volibear anymore for that matter (RIP ARAM)) - though he would make an obvious choice regarding all his references to runes/tattoos - then some other of the original 20 champions as sort of a sentimental commemoration. http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Bundles
Oh, I see. So it's a new Volibear skin. Well, 2 random skins + special Volibear skin (similar to Captain Ganplank back in Bildgwater event), limited chroma and an icon... Still sounds soft. Ok, if they don't want to produce or release limited skins, riot should make many obtainable skins dedicated to the new rune system. In this case, I want to chose or purchase skin I want.
PaladinNO (EUNE)
: Well, I'm still waiting for a response to whether this is authenthic or not: https://www.reddit.com/r/leagueoflegends/comments/4pjkl4/riot_rune_survey/ Though, following the math, after having spent over 150.000, I think 7 Cosmetic crafting chests wouldn't be too much to ask for. I also wonder how limited runes will be treated (such as the Razer one). http://gameinfo.eune.leagueoflegends.com/en/game-info/summoners/runes/ _Check "Quintessences", and go down to the bottom of the screen to see most of them._ I don't own any such myself (signed up too late), but for those who does, they would hold collectors value, which should be recognized just the same as old limited skins turned legacy. Though no more than an icon for those few, I think.
You know, I was thinking more towards limited/legacy Ryze skin. Even though he has like 10 skins already, there is no more suitable champion for this event. OR Riot could open the vault and release young Ryze (former Human Ryze) skin. I haven't seen this skin in game since season 1! I still have active friends who own black Alistar (legit one, obtained not through open account), but non with young ryze. So there are not so many active OG's who might complain about releasing the skin, imo. Reddit idea seems very interesting, but for me 7 cosmetic chests sound like 2 permanent skins + a Volibear skin with just a chroma. I spent so many IPs on T3 runes/pages in seasons 1&2 and it used to be extremely hard to grind them down back then. I simple wouldn't be satisfied with just 2 random permanent skins and a cool chroma. Runelord Volid chroma doesn't commemorate vast history of runes, imo. Yeah, icons should be fine for those Quints. For me they don't carry much value though.

: After having spent over 151.000 IP on runes (and I know that's not very much compared to some), as well as RP on runepages, I claim the right to beg, whine, bitch and complain up to and including being toxic if the refund is not acceptable or of offensively low nature.
RP is a different story. I also spent RP on rune pages and I personally hope to get a cool limited skin. Real money is spent, enough said. What do you propose to receive as a reward for your IP? I myself spent well over 100k IP on runes, but can't really tell what I'd like to get if riot's planning to compensate the IP. Full IP refund doesn't sound exiting.
