  • Riot is still a fantastic company. The legal thing was a misstep, but that's not on the backs of riot as a whole; That's on the backs of the legal team. Stop saying that the entire company is rotten just because idiots sometimes slip through the cracks.

    • @d4s0n yo A little extra is fine, sure, have fun. Valorant they're literally rocking 70-100 euros per skin. AND they have MULTI-TIER UNLOCKS that you can ONLY unlock via A) By BUYING their battle pass or B) Dishing out MORE MONEY. Imagine it. 50e skin and you need to pay MORE to unlock for the rest of it. OF 1 SKIN. PER WEAPON. And when people called out on it? Riot went "bruh our devs been making these skins for a year before the game came out!" All the while dishing out more skins literally every week. Do i need to mention the artificial scarcity mechanics or other manipulative bullshit they're pulling? Rune pages, server transfers, multi tier skins, skins within skins, paid heroes etc. Riot has a shitton of players, a shitton. And instead of supporting the playerbase with reasonable systems and prices - they instead add these meme-worthy stupid ass jpop (which is a genre of music i enjoy btw) only to cash-out on a certain type of demographic. But yes, otherwise cosmetic only effects etc? Best ever. If only there was a MOBA that would have all the heroes unlocked from the start, a chance to unlock skins which then you can sell to other players and buy actual video games off their platform. With 0 server-transfer fees, 0 other account-service payments, 0 anything. Just log-in, install and play. If only.

    • @d4s0n yo Caring about money is 1 thing. But selling skins in video games that - TO UNLOCK EXTRA FEATURES WITHIN THE SKINS THEMSELVES - costs you 200 euros, that goes from "Caring about money" and just "Just checking what we can get away with".

  • It isnt as simple as “riot did one bad thing” most people have been playing since 2013 we all remember how riot handled the renegades situation, or the import rule debate, or franchising, it’s more of like “wow another thing riot’s doing to just make everyone not want to play league”

    WakaWakaAcum o Zi
    • Also the debate for classic servers with wow that was so controversial was skipping monthly subscriptions, where as league is a free game, to assume they are losing profits from people playing on classic servers would be assuming those people would buy skins in the first place

  • I think Riot is in the right, but I think they could've taken an opportunity with it. If they partnered with them they it would be a low risk low/high reward for Riot depending how they go about it, it could be something like the PBE in how it runs

  • Fuck this. I actually remembered this one time where a game called Skullgirls Mobile decided to reference Annie from League of Legends as a skin for their new character called Annie of the Stars. And apparently, Riot decided to ask them to remove it with a "friendly discussion". Some game companies didn't care that their game characters were referenced. Heck, even Star Butterfly from SVTFOE were referenced as a skin pallete in that game but it was for some reason fine. And Ganondorf was also referenced as a skin pallete. Which that character is OWNED by Nintendo, the king of cease and desists. But for some reason they let that slide as well. Riot has a LOT of issues and I feel that this thing I mentioned and Chrono Shift is just the tip of the iceberg.

  • This is one of the rare events where, I dare say, I'm on Riot's side. Not just because they are objectively on the right, but also because of how majority of the players reacted. Yes Riot did a f*cking bad execution, but the community is just as sh*tty as them. I asked a friend that have never played league before on what he think about Riot Games and the playerbase. He said that Riot is a pretty good company for marketing their games well and keeping their active players stable. On the other hand, he thinks the players are mostly made of angry adults who yell at each other and complain to just about everything. According to him "The game must be nice if t can maintain such huge following. I want to try it myself but I've heard that the players aren't the nicest". Opinion on this matter is pretty divided. The players think Riot is bad but outsiders think otherwise.

  • Honestly with everything you presented, personally idc about riot or the project, but the way it was handled is shit. This random dude contacted them on DISCORD asking for everything they worked on just randomly and threatened a lawsuit if they don't comply lol. They could've offered them to join riot and develop it independently or even adding some team members to help and see how it turns out, they could've offered to buy the project or ask to shut it down since it's official riot IP, they could've sent a proper mail like you said and let them think it through not this random dude that was threatening them lol. And everything you said later could've been assessed in a different way and resolved by riot in different ways. This just seems like they didn't care enough to properly deal with it or wanted to cash in the project without doing it themselves. tl;dr They are in their right to do so but there were many ways to solve the problem that didn't escalate to a lawsuit(if the creators of the project were reasonable) and that kept everyone happy. This was handled unprofessionally and inefficiently.

  • Riots corporate culture is NOTORIOUSLY bad within the industry.... I say this as someones who's worked within the gaming industry. They're known for their frat-boy atmosphere, bad internal decisions, and the top-down 'do anything and everything to sell digital bs to teens' initiative... Sure, all companies suck in some regard. But riot... riot takes it to a new level. Now, am I saying everyone in RIot is shit? god no. their actual art teams and creatives are great. but thats the caveat, not the rule... as a rule Riot has the WORST internals of any gaming company, and I include EA, Blizzard, Naughty Dog, etc. When this tweet broke, I was NOT surprised... I was having my morning coffee, read the tweets and was like... "yeah, this tracks". The reason you've probably had good experiences with Riots staff is due to them using handlers with social media/gamers. You'll never be allowed to see the grimy shit that goes on when HR isn't breathing down everyones neck to make a good impression. It sucks but... this is the reality of that company.

    • Ok finished, good video man, but I gotta hard disagree. Plenty of people are going to shit on riot out of malice, but I personally know people who have worked for Riot, and some who still do. It's a shit-show. Also as to emulators, I DO kinda see what you're saying here... but its a gray area. It was the same with Blizzards classic servers. they decided to incorporate them but only after MASSIVE fan backlash. League of Legends has an artificially inflated player count right now due to Covid. Before that they were losing players by the millions due to how they've handled the meta, fun in game, their Community toxicity. trolls, etc. There's a lot of reasons. People are missing the earlier seasons due to their love of the game, and if Riot doesn't embrace 'classic servers', this is just going to happen again because there's a market for it.

  • Riot is such a trash company. While there are people who work on games with a lot of passion, Riot as a company is a company as bad as Nintendo, EA, Ubisoft or Bethesda. They dont care about their community. They dont care about their games, they just care about the money they can get out of them. At this point there is no way to defend riot. It's almost like they want us to hate them.

  • The truth is that Riot doesn't actually care about the server itself. Cronoshift was going to have its own client. Can you imagine how bad Riot would feel if a group of friends would make a client that works better than Riot's 200 years of crashing and bugging out every game?

  • This might be an unpopular opinion, but I never like Riot because of their lack of originality. From my perspective they only like to copy other's success and fear innovation, the whole company starts with a dota rip-off with Tencent backing it up so it can barely survive. They had the luck to gain an enormous amount of players which made a shit ton of money for them but they have no desire to develop any new games. Until 5-6 years later, they decide to make another rip-off which also related to dota, this time with even more similarity. Seriously? I don't know what's wrong with riot's daddy issue with dota but I've lost all hope on this company when TFT came out.

Sitting there and saying "Well, ahem, they're in their legal right to do so" doesn't mean it's correct, nor is it the right way to go about things. If saying "They're in their legal right to do so" was all you needed to say to dismiss a counter-argument, boy howdy do you got issues

  • Just a reminder to never treat companies like people. Corporations do not care for your feelings, nor your passion, nor your hard work. They do not have everybody's best interests in mind. Because they *cannot* feel. Companies are not people. There can be good people or bad people in a company, but a company can only technically be *successful* or *unsuccessful.* Don't expect anything from a company. Treat the corporations like the faceless entities they are, and respect or disrespect the individual people who keep the machine running instead.

  • I feel like skooch is taking a way too relaxed view here. This situation is very similar to the situations Nintendo has. Do they have the legal right? As they're using the IP, yes. I think it's clear to most people however that the situation has more to do with Riot's moral right to take down a fan project's hard work, especially if there were very straight forward profitable alternatives such as just hiring the people to include a new rotating game mode to league. Also, even if you think they had the moral right to do so, they way that they did it is a very poor way of doing it. It's also extremely questionable as to why they didn't just send a cease and desist in the first place. This situation reminds of the internal resolutions they did with sexual harassment accusations. Skooch also says that Riot is still a "fantastic" company. He says that this is the fault of the legal team, not Riot as a whole. However, the legal team is still another part of Riot and should still be considered when evaluating Riot as a whole. Therefore, I find Skooch's statements much too lax and optimistic. The tone of the video also seems to be more defensive of Riot. While Skooch does fault riot for this in the end, they fact that he brought so much focus on the sheep of the internet and reminding people that Riot has the right seemed unnecessary, resembling that of damage control. A more unbiased view that focused on what Riot could and couldn't have done would've been better imo.

  • For me, whatever company that slaps fans to death instead of hiring them for future projects, is just a shitty company, clearly fans have more love for "your game" than yourselves, that's why i love Bethesda or even take two recently with the modder that fixed GTA online loading on PC, they (take 2) have him like 10k for his work and bethesda while they don't give money to modders, at least they let them do whatever they want, a group of modders are literally merging morrowind, oblivion and skyrim into 1 game and bethesda knows that and its gucci about it

  • Imagine being so butthurt about an IP that was stolen from Dota and renamed. Not to mention Teemo and numerous other champ ideas that were stolen and simply renamed or had a single skill changed on their kit from the original that was posted. They didn't want to bring back the old league, but many players have asked them repeatedly to add a legacy mode which tbh wouldn't be hard to do for them. They were just scared of the money theyd lose, and instead of working on their own idea, they rather take the hard work others did, most likely use it for themselves and save money / time. Just a lazy company overall and it's really went downhill since their overlords bought them.

Yet since riot has a billion dollars and the chronoshift devs do not, they can afford to stonewall a case forever until the chronoshift devs go bankrupt. Being able to force your opponents to negotiate out of court or bankrupt them =/ being in the legal right.

  • I'm here just based on the description. Yes, they are in their right to do so. But fuck them. They have said they don't want to do a legacy style server for League due to it being too hard and time consuming, and taking away resources from making new and cool features. This was an opportunity for Riot to work with Chronoshift and have an official branch, or give these people jobs at riot and just have it be built into the main league client, etc etc. Absolutely immoral for them to do what they did. This is the problem with live service games, the game many people loved doesn't exist anymore, and any attempt at making it playable again, like chronoshift, get shut down by vile corporations. Thats what's fucked up. A not insignificant amount of people who were interested in Chronoshift don't even play League anymore, so it would not have hurt Riots bottom line as much as they may insinuate or imply. Just because a corporation is in their legal right to do something does not mean in any way shape or form they should be defended on that basis alone. EVERYONE knows they're in their legal right. It still doesn't make it right to do. Fuck riot. And as a lot of people have pointed out in various comments, League only exists due to an allowed adaptation of another IP (The original dota mod) so for them to get so up in arms about something like this, when this type of thing is the whole reason their company exists, is just disgusting. DOTA used a whole bunch of copyrighted IP from Warcraft 3, then League copied the idea and even a couple straight up champions. Now someone wants to use their IP to revive a version of the game they killed, while refusing to take even donations for their work, and Riot throw a hissy fit. It's fucked up, and I think you know that.

  • Riot are within their right to stop the project but to us who were excited about it, it's baffling that they didn't just approach the team and ask to collaborate on making this an official product. A lot of us who were gonna play Chronoshift are no longer invested in League as it is today so the loss they would have taken on skin sales and the splitting of the player base, in all actuality, would have been fairly negligible. It's just a shitty move that pushes your older fans away even further.

So SE won't care if someone emulated it. But league is a game which STILL EXISTS and have a lot of people playing and paying for it. It's just, they shouldn't have asked Zed for this.

  • I mean, assuming the code really interacts with riots API (meaning all the parts of the game comes from an official source) and there's no revenue for chrono shift from the skins, riot has absolutely no legal right to take the project down, if players go from your game to another it's called competition, this is literally how capitalism works. Also, if they really were worried about chronoshift being a competitor, they could have just agreed on hiring those developers to implement the project onto the game itself, and thus implementing a new mode to take the place of the 3vs3 and the dominion. They wouldn't even have to balance the vintage mode, they already did the patch notes X years ago.

  • they’re in the right but like, this was probably THE worst way to go about it, whoever that Riot employee is not a good one for sure

    • I wouldn't say completely in the right, demanding the Chronoshift team's code and website is actually illegal because the Chronoshift team made all that from the ground up because league doesn't back up the code from previous seasons.

  • They should take the code and make it a gamemode inside league like urf. It's as easy as that.

  • From Riots perspective they need to do something. However that something dosen't have to be a CnD. They could just do like Microsoft with Age of empires and hire them to make the product.

    • Hell they could have just still given them a CnD but offered to buy the code and website off of them instead of illegally trying to steal it.

  • Honestly yes they are in their right to stop the game but at the same time the way it happened was just not right and was very unprofessional. Also I dont think it was because they would lose players I believe they probably have something in the works for a classic LoL because even if they lose abit of players it wouldn't really hinder them all that much LoL is one of the most played games ever and they keep gaining more players everyday.

  • Makes sense for them to do this, but the way they went about it was horrendous. If riot wants to not lose money from something like this, why don’t they just make a legacy mode that’s like an LTM

  • When you have the opportunity to make even more money by hiring choronoshift devs, but instead shut them down because you are worried about losing money....... Riot games lacks intelligence, seriously, sad pathetic losers.

  • Riot is turning into Activision-Blizzard and will probably make a wow classic equivalent to league of legends when they find a way to monetize it

  • Legally Riot is in their right for this, however like many people in the comments say their execustion was insanely unproffessional. I would also like to think that Riot should consider such a game mode with in the current game. Giving even the newest players some of the older game to try.

  • People tend to forget, that there are legal obligations most trademark holders have to oblige by, or lose the rights to said trademark. So it was probably a salty situation for them, but they had too because if they didn't, bigger issues would've occurred.
