Riot is not the player focused company they used to be. They've pretty much become a bank, and screw you over regardless of if you support them by purchasing RP or not. All of the people I played with 2 years ago say the same thing; the company is going downhill fast.
Their primary focus is making money, and now that that is actually happening, why would they ever want to go back to being player focused? Having players that play simply because they enjoy the game doesn't make them any cash at all, and in Riot's eyes, that simply won't do.
+1 for thread, and I greatly apologize for the incoming thread removal/forum ban. Hell, my actual account was banned from the forums for saying that the Riot forum mod team had the IQ and sense of humor of a cucumber, and the ban only proved me right.
