To those of you in the gaming community which are avid users and/or fans of various online-based games, I come to you with a report on the abuses of users/fans of League of Legends (LoL) by RIOT Games.
While promoting their product, they asked each and every one of those who are active members of the LoL community to vote multiple times daily at MMOSITE. If RIOT achieved top seat in two of the three categories, we would each be rewarded.
The community responded, and the achievement was so. Since LoL became public, however, the reliability of the servers has been horrible. Downtime for up to 12 hours at a time, glitches throughout the client and in gameplay, etc.
Today, during our reward period for voting LoL as the top game for two categories, the servers have been mediocre at best. Additionally, the server crashed within the last few hours removing any and all benefit of the reward given.
Poised as a company that is for and by players, RIOT has now reduced its standing and has caused many people to just give up. When issues are reported, there is little or no response. Due to the frustration by the LoL community, hostility has come toward RIOT Games. In response, RIOT has completely disallowed any user to login to the site to post anything.
I am posting here so that some of you may read this and make your own decision whether to play LoL (it is a really fun game - if it is working). But am also posting hereto attempt to "go to the mattresses" and get help in resolving this issue by outside pressure.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
