You guys are acting like Riot is like a kid with a ball playing keep-away with us. I think they know what they're doing, I trust they don't want the server hamster to spontaneously combust or have a myocardial infarction. There were a few issues with the beta yesterday, especially as we got into peak hours (specifically, in game lag became pretty bad for a while there, until they, I assume, scaled the platform a bit). That's what they're trying to do, frankly. The point of a beta test is to push the platform as hard as you can, watch it break, and then fix it, analyzing what broke it, why it broke, and how you can improve its resilience.
Teal Deer: They know what they're doing, and they're not cruelly keeping it out of our hands.
Incidentally, when did they say they would have it released by now? Only thing I remember is "Shortly after PAX." It's been, what, almost a month? That's still "shortly" in my book.
