Regarding last week's 3.5 Patch and Free 4 Win IP Boost for NA

EDIT: EU is getting this too! CALM DOWN.

In light of last week's patch 3.5 problems, Riot is issuing 4 Win IP boosts to NA summoners who have played in the past 30 days.

Here is Riot Cochese with the full announcement:
RiotCochese's Avatar"Hello Summoners, 
Stefan, aka Riot Cochese here. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m a live producer charged with maintaining the health of the League of Legends live services in NA. As you know, the 3.5 deploy last week was a bit rough, lasting over 12 hours, and not something we intended to put you all through.

Here is what happened: 
We proactively pushed a new map, Howling Abyss, to the PBE early in order to get more coverage and testing before we rolled it out to live. This is something new that we are working on process wise, and we published this map in an iterative state, well before it was finished. When we rolled the 3.5 deploy out to live a queue for this map was left in, which caused crashes when selected by players due to the map not actually being there. We had the right intentions, but we obviously found a hole in our new roll-out process that we’ll be correcting immediately. 
Long-term improvement of our deploy times and quality continues to be one of our primary goals. Clearly we missed the boat with 3.5, and this is something we will continue improving upon. 
In light of this extended downtime, we will be compensating you with a 4 Win IP boost. To ensure we don’t miss anybody, we’ll be providing the boost to anyone who has logged in within the past 30 days. We’ve already begun to roll this out, so you should see your boost within the next few days. I know that this doesn’t make what happened right, but I promise we will get better. 
Thank you, 
Riot Cochese"

As NA received the brunt of the problems ( being patched a day early and being unavailable almost that entire day ) it seems they are the only ones getting the IP boost; there is not a similar post on the EU forums. Don't shoot the messenger.
