Like clockwork. I buy a one day IP boost + a 10 win, servers go to ****. Right before they do, my ranked game bugs out on character select, and will NOT allow me to choose a champion. It forces me to random. I get Veigar with my masteries set to tank spec. Can't change them, it says an error occurred when I try. Yeah, in case you're wondering, we lost because I've played Veigar like twice. Near the end of the game I had him down enough to dish some damage, but still, we had no tank. Ridiculous. I'd complain about wanting a loss wiped from my history but I KNOW Riot wouldn't be cool enough to do that. They'd rather suck up some cash and then not do anything about their trash servers.
So, thanks again Riot! It's so awesome that you gave people a 4 win boost! This is my third time based IP buff I will have lost because of you. But, that awesome 4 win boost is just so great. It definitely makes up for all of this.
I won't be able to play tomorrow or Monday. I kinda purchased the one day IP boost because I can play NOW, not after your servers decide to temporarily stop being trash. Glad I dump money into this game just to be screwed over time and time again. I honestly don't know why I even play...
I've spent more money on this game than the $60 on any other game I have, so the "it's a free game" argument is absolute BS. The few people who continue to play for free, having never spent a dollar on the game, are a minority. I think everyone else can agree it's pretty frustrating that you can't even buy a time based IP boost because Riot not only spits in your face with their trash servers being down, they don't make it so upon LOGGING IN NEXT TIME the remaining time of your IP Boost (after servers are down) starts counting down again. How hard would that be? Seriously. Apparently it's too hard to think of the customers who roll the dice when they put money in your pockets. Rather than coming up with a solution, some little band-aid is given (yay 4 win boost I feel so privileged!!).
I even stopped playing for a few weeks to let the server issues be resolved. When I saw the 4 win IP Boost given out I honestly thought the servers would be better... Wow, fool me once... Right?
