Lots of us at Riot saw yesterday's post about League of Legends conspiracy theories. It got us thinking: what would the opposite of that thread look like? Instead of players' conspiracies about Riot, Rioters' secret-held conspiracies about players.
Some responses from our internal Slack (raw text version in comments):
Here's one from yours truly:
And then Ghostcrawler trolled the thread:
To all of you on the subreddit, here's an early congrats on hitting 3 million subs from us at Riot!
EDIT: HERE ARE THE POSTS IN RAW TEXT FORM
"Leagues doesn't have a player base, but is populated by highly sophisticated bots" – Max
"players all actually deserve to be in challenger, we just ruin it by artificially limiting the size of challenger" – Guy
"The people who post the saltiest anti-yasuo memes are the most frequent yasuo players." – Kellye
"about 20 to 35% of lol are inactive or lapsed players, but stick around and pay attention to League because the community & developers are vastly more active & engaged than other game titles. Number would be higher if it wasn't for games like PoE" – Caylen
"I think players are generally kind people who enjoy their video games, don't rage, and appreciate our company for the work that we do, and are really looking forward to our future products." – Brian
"Players who cry justice for Rek'sai skins have never played Rek'sai" – Janelle
"Most of the players who want another lux skin are actually assassin mains wanting to lane vs her and increase their winrate" – Ben
"I think only a super small percentage of League players would actually call League their main game, but it is everybody's second game, sort of like how English is an extremely popular second language to learn." – Matthew
"the players asking for star guardian urgot are actually all one really passionate urgot player who just has a lot of usernames" – Guy
"Half of reddit is actually Rioters who need to vent on alternate accounts." – Sunny
"Not enough players mention that they actually like playing the simpler champions openly because there's an association that "simple" means "they aren't as good of a player", even though identifying what you enjoy is ever as much a skill." – Reina
"One in five million Dianas automatically receives challenger status. It’s a hack, and happens so rarely, players spontaneously combust :overexcited:. It’s why there are no Challenger Dianas." – Indu
"Players who say they are a 'diamond smurf' probably are a diamond smurf, and yet they are still losing in silver all the same. :)" – Dan
"Every "new player" account in mature regions we've acquired on growth over the last couple of years is actually just a SMURF IN DISGUISE (this truly keeps me up at night)" – Andrea
"Most of the time when players make a complaint thread, they’re intentionally using the subreddit as a sort of powerful anarchic-democratic tool to influence Rioters and Riot’s decision-making—and this has impacted the development of League of Legends in both positive and negative ways." – (me)
"None of them actually play League anymore but they all used to." – Greg Street (Ghostcrawler)
