And they're completely in their right to do so.

  • 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.

    • @Sirminimuffin - china. Literally if all other servers we to just vanish except the chinese servers, riot wouldn't feel any hit. Not even a tickle or a slight disturbance. - they make skins for champions that are insanely popular, when was the last time there was an ornn skin? Or Aurelion Sol? - league of simps - people addicted to the game It's not rocket science to figure it out. Just because a company is successful and has a ton a pot gold, doesn't mean they deserve it or they're doing good. Look at EA. It's a shit company yet...pocket full of dollars. I get that riot is a company and a company's objective is to make profit. It's not ethically wrong or anything. But at least earn your shit by doing things properly.

    • @Elias Khalil they are a successful multi million dollar game company, if riot is so terrible, then why are they so successful, just look at it objectively, even though the majority of league players say “riot and the game is trash” they still feed their money into the company, further proving that their tactics are indeed working at gaining a profit....

Its the higer-ups. The corporate heads, the ones who only care about money. The art team, the developers, and yes, even the balance team we all shit on daily isn't at fault. Its the higher ups. The heads of this company, and tencent.

  • 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

  • In all fairness, aside from the Zed bullshit, they did say a while ago that they did not want them continuing the project as soon as they were informed. Despite this they carried on. They actually communicated it (albeit through a reddit reply) rather than nintendo where they legit take it down no questions asked.

  • Cease and desist can force you to shut down, sure. But threatening a lawsuit unless they hand over the SOURCE CODE?? That's now super illegal, extortion for one, legal action taken in ill will can be shot down on that alone, the problem being a small team, or a indie dev simply can't afford the legal battle in the first place

  • 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.

  • Riot isn't in the legal right to shutdown chronoshift (no code is stolen, textures and other assets come straight from riot's CDN, chronoshift is just a server emulator). 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.

  • The thing that makes me suspicious is all the information that Zed guy was threatening for. Like it made it seem like Riot not only wanted to shut down Chronoshift, but also maybe steal the work they had done to just do it themselves. Especially since Riot said they wouldn't do it because they didn't want to pay for the development of it.

  • 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.

  • Riot is correct. They used Riot's IP without permission and Riot should've warned them. It's different with emulators. Final Fantasy Dissidia is an old game which no one plays now. 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. Lux with her light puns would've been far better.

  • 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.

Is Riot Games broke? Can't afford to hide a clearly motivated and passionate team that would probably add value to their current team?

The creators of this project will be brought in token roles as advisers to appease fans till the hate dies down at which point they’ll be promptly dropped and big game studio will do what they always do which is make as much money as possible at the literal expense of their players.

People can even buy skins for the old game separately. Its preety much free money that riot doesn't want to make because making egirl and eboy skins is easier.

Riot is entirely within their right, and shutting something like this down is good in the long run aways. These nostalgia trip projects all go through the same life cycle-- booming within the first 3 months or so when they are released, full of people who claim its much better back then (Despite never actually playing 'back then') as well as people who were legitimately curious, then immediately dropping into obscurity and only kept afloat by a low percentile of people who die hard insist that 'old is better' mostly from their own inability to handle the new changes.

  • the issue i see is that Riot although legally right should have shut it down a long time ago they only did it now because the games on a downward spiral with champion releases being buggier than the last, older players want stability and a feel of nostalgia and I think that scared Riot into shutting it down they seem to have gone about it quite rushed and not very well thought out they could have just stopped players downloading old clients and offered the Chrono team a job at Riot to work on a official version instead they immediately went in as soon as League's patches left MUCH to be desired certain items atm are being left untouched and they pretty much ruin the game (stride breaker im looking at you) and then others are left sucking the back of milk lids for sustenance (night harvester) just go look at DOTA 2s last huge patch that changed nearly every single hero in some way and then riot struggles to balance out 10 in 4 patches its getting a little silly at this point
