also to Smoth's questions above.
Riot have failed to provide a lot of things that they had promised to the community the biggest problems being the following.
New maps (this has been promised since beta infact beta even had a map select screen) its been like 2 years now and they keep sidestepping.
Spectator support. This had also been promised atm only in tournaments (lol competitve LoL) and events do they have spectators to live stream and even that is done with a dodgy 6v5 summoner spell hax.
Pause function. Proven to be a problem in their livecast.
Replays. Again promised but haven't delivered and keep making excuses.
Revamp of the client not using Adobe Air. Newp
Their are tons of other things. The only thing they do release is new Champions (with not much thought) and horrid balance changes because they don't know how they want their game to be played so they just have knee jerk reactions and buff/nerf without thinking about it.
The most fail thing on the internet showcasing all that is bad with Riot. http://www.own3d.tv/video/46533/Riot_Ga ... -_03_02_53
For 30 dollars I can have the whole menu in HoN and DOTA/DOTA2.
