We don't lie to you guys
. We <3 you very much. Sometimes (like now!) we can't discuss things, and others we are mistaken, but lying? Not at this company.
Where I come from saying you're going to do something and then it not happening is basically lying. Yeah unforeseen circumstances and all that, but how long does it take for you guys to understand all we need are some screenshots? I don't want dates, I don't care about dates until your sure and they're already set in stone, all I want to see is PROGRESS. But all Riot seems to get from that is "ohhh god they want a set time what do we say guys? Well we can't give them a date so we'd better say nothing." NO, A THOUSAND TIMES NO, just show us progress, that's all we've ever needed.
I get you guys are "super excited" about "what's going on at Riot HQ" and that's great if it's legitimate enthusiasm, but all people have asked for are screenshots, we're past the point of understanding you guys can't give out specific dates, because we've been lied to about those as well, we just want to see progress, and it's like you guys can't even give us that without lying either. And don't make me quote Tamat's and Tryndamere's promises (screenshots, progress reports), because I'm d.amn sure you've seen them enough already.
