... is that Riot put on a sale for ward skins (that expire after one week, lol) and simultaneously released a map that has no wards on it.
Brilliant business strategy. Of course, this just proves that Riot doesn't give a **** about 3s.
I know several people who were going to buy RP to celebrate the end of the season and enjoying a free game they would like to support and now won't. I personally was not going to buy RP, but I find it hilarious that Riot is alienating potential customers. The fact that Riot doesn't care about the non-paying players is understandable; it is a free game, so Riot can take out a map most people like and replace it with a sack of dog ****. That is their right. But their poor business plan is both absurd and amusing, once you get over the fact that it is time to either find a new gametype (SR, custom ARAM, or Dominion) or quit LoL completely.
At least, as soon as our team gets to gold tomorrow (herp).
