Thank You

By Ryze, Tryndamere

When we started this journey 10 years ago, we had no idea what Riot and League would become. Luckily, we were carried forward by the passion of a player community that continues to grow and evolve, ten years later.

There’s nothing more to say beyond thank you.

To mark our first decade as a company and show our appreciation to you for building the game alongside us, we’re throwing a (small) celebration. Here are the details:


10-Year Gifts

Every League of Legends player who has played a game within the last couple of months will receive a new summoner icon along with the Riot Kayle skin. If you don’t own Kayle, you’ll get her, too. If you already own both, you’ll receive a mystery gift. Players who can’t receive mystery gifts will instead receive the RP value of a mystery gift in their region.

The gifting process will take a few days, so hold tight if you haven’t received anything quite yet. And don’t worry if you haven’t played in a bit—we’ll make another pass next week to snag anyone else who logs on and grabs a game.


Bonus IP Weekend

We’re also enabling a bonus IP weekend. Starting at 12:01 a.m. PT on 9/16, your base IP gains will be doubled until 11:59 p.m. PT on 9/18 (so, Friday-Sunday). Note that this is a flat boost—premades and parties will receive the same bonus as solo players.

Thanks for the last 10 years! We can’t wait to see where we go next.


GIFT FAQ

  • I haven’t played a game in a while—can I still get a gift?
    Yep! Play a game this week (any time through 9/19) and we’ll catch you when we do the last pass next week.
  • I should be eligible for a gift, but I don’t have anything. What gives?
    Due to the nature of this particular gift and the way it varies by account, we’re not able to simultaneously grant it to everyone. This means it may take a few days for the gift to show on your account. We’re asking for a bit of patience through next week as we pick up all the stragglers—if you don’t have it by 9/23, let Player Support know. Additionally, players using the alpha League client may receive the gift but not a notice—double-check your account before opening a ticket.
  • I was recently penalized by Instant Feedback. Can I still get a gift?
    Yes. Normally we limit gifts to good sports, but we're making an exception for the 10-year mark. Let's call it a gesture of good faith.
  • What are the exact restrictions on the gift?
    10-year gifts will be sent to all players who are at least level five and have played a game within 60 days of this post. We’ll do another pass on 9/23 to pick up anyone who plays a game this week (deadline: 9/19).
