Dear General Discussion,
Hi, my summoner name is Kosher Walrus. I wanted to make this thread today as an apology to the community, I feel what I have done is shameful, disgusting, and criminal. Some of you may remember this. About this time, a year ago, I had the summoner name "Demonfister". In an attempt to exploit the community, and insult their intelligence, I created a thread on an alternate account of mine (AsuraVengeance) detailing that this "Demonfister" character was a friend of AsuraVengeance, and that "Demonfister" had a terrible disease, one which might terminate his existence. In an attempt to get referrals so I may one day gain a skin which I liked, I took advantage of all of you, and for that, I am sorry. I consider people who exploit diseases shameful, and whats even more shameful is that I did that exact same thing myself. If you search up the name "Demonfister" on the forums, I'm sure you could read the entire debacle yourself, if you're interested. I never got a warning for the thread, I never had any red chat with me, I didn't get a slap on the wrist at all. I got away lucky, but was I really that lucky? I had the guilt of a crime on my mind, and I decided to leave League for awhile. I was upset that my plan had failed at the time, but over time I was more upset that I could let myself stoop to something so low.
I have been thinking about making this thread for awhile, and wondered what the consequences would be if I were to remind people of such a thing again. With Riot now cracking down on taking advantage of the referral system, I figured if I made this, it would remind Riot of my crime, and I would have action taken against my account - of which I've spent so much time and money on. I was scared to do it, but to clear my conscience, I wanted to make this thread. I have to take the risk, because I truly feel bad. For people that have such diseases, it's a terrible thing. It's inspiring knowing there are real people out there who have these diseases, or injuries, and still continue to do what they enjoy most in life - play games. I faked a disease, such a terrible act in itself, and for what? Virtual goods? The likes of which have no effect on the enjoyment I get from playing this game?
So, this is my apology. For you to forgive me or not, is up to you. League has been a great inspiration to me, as I one day strive to be a game designer, or perhaps even a professional gamer. I am sorry for all who I've insulted, and tricked into believing this fallacy. Thank you so much for reading. Have a great day!
