Anyway, how come all the adult females in this game have large mammary glands? Is it because *** sells and most of the LoL is played by males? This in fact would turn more cash in for riot because some men can't control themselves and buy all the sexy champs and their sexy skins without a care. I doubt they would buy those champs if they looked like a mormon(or something to that nature, I am just trying to make a point here.)
Next point, From what I understand riot has done something with the riot points so that you always have a little left over.. but never enough to buy something which means you have to buy more riot points and be stuck with more than you need again but still unable to buy something. I heard that this is a business tactic microsoft used with the microsoft point system and is considered exploitative of customers. What does this say about riot? Are you guys trying to exploit us?
Next point, It seems the game was set up with a few bogus numbers IP wise. You almost never gain lets say for example 100 IP for a win and 50 for a loss. Also champs cost 450,1350,3150,6300.... this is quite odd and I think it is just another way for riot to juice you for another game. Like have you ever been short like 10 IP of a champ? That is because of how the numbers are set up so that more times than not you probably have to play one more 45 min game just to obtain the 20 IP or so you are off from the champ! Why are the numbers not 500,1300,3000,6000? hmmm very suspicious and odd.
Next point, riot over prices the things for some reason. Like some 3150 champs cost the same amount of riot points as the 6300 champs!? WHAT!? You can't tell me that is not exploitative and weird.
Next point, new champions are never released in the same week that they become free because riot knows they will not make money if they made the champ free on the day of its release in that weeks beginning free rotation. I just can't help but feel they do that so people don't try out the champ and decide they don't like and don't buy it, instead riot does it the way they do so that people buy the champ with real money etc and then make the champ free next week or so after the revenue from the champ rolls in. Also riot has been pushing out some pretty good champs.. a little too good. I think this is a ploy to drag in more money because if people see the champ is good, riot gains more money and then after the revenue gained starts to drop, they nerf the champ down into a balanced power level. Very odd to me riot... very odd indeed.
There are probably a lot more points but these are the ones I found most blatant... I wish riot wouldn't blatantly make decisions like a business though. At least try to cover your tracks.
How come the females in movies have large breasts? How about in playboy? Anime?
Guys like big breasts. It's just how it is. I don't think it's some kind of business tactic. Why don't you go accuse playboy of using girls with large breasts because they want to make more money.
There was a huge discussion about the riot points, but whether you like it or not you don't have to buy them. No once is forcing you to spend your money, and it is cool of riot to allow you to get everything in this game (except for skins, which don't affect gameplay) for free. This game could cost money but it's free. Champions could cost money but they are free, etc. You should be thankful for having such an awesome game you can play for free rather than be angry that the packages of riot points you have to buy don't work out evenly with the price. You can only buy points in packages, that is why you always get points left over.
Oh right because riot makes **** tons of money when you play that extra game to buy a champ with IP. In fact they lose money. Every single time you play a game they lose money, because that is bandwidth on their servers. But again, you don't have to buy anything you dont want to buy, rather than *****ing about something costing 3150 IP you should be thankful that IP exists to begin with.
the fact that a 3000 IP and 6000 IP champ costs the same RP just means that the 6000 IP champ is cheaper to buy, which isn't screwing anybody.
Yes, they don't make them free for a reason, because those new champions take time and effort to make and time and effort is money. If they made them free then everyone could play it for free and the first week of it being released no one would buy the champ and then they would not make any of the money that they spent making the champion back on it. If you don't wanna pay for a champion before trying him out, wait for the second week when they always let you play them and then try it out and then the third week you can buy it if you like it.
Riot is a business dude, they are not out to be your best friend. They have bills to pay just like every other game company, and they are a lot better about it than other game companies.
If you don't like it, go to blizzard and pay 60$ for a game, and then 30$ x 2 for expansion packs, and then 15$ a month.
Would you prefer if riot did that and then gave out champions and skins for free? Because I'm sure that they would make a lot more money if they used blizzards business model.
And every time they make 5 new champions they release a 30$ expansion pack and that's the only way you can get the champions.
That'd be great.
tl;dr; QQ more, riot is a business with bills to pay
