Our fellow summoner Metronomicanoid isn't normally the one to gripe, but he just can't let go of some things. He recently made a disgruntled post about the promotion Riot held back in late January. The promotion, aimed at enticing summoners of old back to the game, consisted of a promotional codes sent by email to redeem both the champion Pantheon and Persus Pantheon skin. These items, valued at around $15, caused an immediate uproar on the forums. Active summoners became furious that people who quit the game received free content, while they received nothing for their loyalty. Riot was in quite the pickle and promised to look into the situation to try to find an outcome that made everyone happy. We received a somber red post today about the matter, clarifying that there will not be a similar promotion again. Whether it is good or bad that community was up in arms about this promotion, I don't know, but who wouldn't want more people to flock back to their beloved game? What do you think?
"We didn't forget, I commented on the thread you were referencing to close the matter. We shut down the promotion and aren't planning on doing anything like that again. We can't go back in time to undo what happened, but we did listen to your feedback and make sure that the promotions that we do in the future don't upset you like this did."- Tamat, Lead Community Manager, via the official forums.
