We have plans to provide players with permanent summoner icon rewards for many different things over the next several months, including lifetime RP purchases as well as good behavior in game. The Shadow Isles summoner icons were specifically designed to reward players for participating in the Shadow Isles and the Harrowing offerings, with some of the icons being extremely rare for those who provide the greatest amount of support. However, I understand the frustration of those who feel they haven’t been rewarded for past RP purchases, or for other contributions such as being a great player in-game, but I can assure you, it is coming.

Guess it's delusional to think anything other than you guys are just after the next dollar though, right? : )
In the next several months you will have access to rewards that other don't because of your lifetime RP spending. This particular promotion has nothing to do with lifetime RP spending.
9 month ago Riot announced rewards for RP purchases including lifetime purchases...
Only thing they invented are rewards for buying RP in a period of time...

Now they even invetn icons of teams and are selling them...no reward for lifetime purchases...

Riot you are so disappointing and show that you just are interested in making money....

You cant be sure that you had no time for us players who spent so much money (600€+) in this game for 9 month... I just have no words for that...

In general, Riot is more focused on the long term and would rather wait to do it right.

So why you want them to automaticly upgrade when you can just give icons based on money spent and then when they spent more and reach the point where it should upgrade, just give them an aditional icon... thats not rly hard to do and isnt rly a big difference as if it would upgrade. Also you said in the next several month nine month ago... sry that I say this but this "we want make them as cool as possible" seems to be just an excuse which you use to calm down players...

Why dont you release the option which I explained, that you gain an aditional icon instead of upgrading and when you are able to do the technical part that it auto upgrades you can change it. Thats not rly hard to do and noone would complain.

Just my opinion and how it looks to me and I bet many others...

That's the goal of every company.
If money wasn't the motive so many problems would be solved already,and some wouldn't even appear at the first place.
Face it the game is just to make them rich,providing with temporary solutions is just to make sure we keep playing and to shut us up.

The idea was pretty hated, wouldn't be surprised if they scrapped it. But recently I read somewhere on Sur@20 that it was still in the works.

It is not, my dad is dentist, and without my mom working as well, they couldnt afford to live as 2 people in an average house. He doesnt charge every single bit of his work, to make it cheaper, and affordable with the mindset of helping people with their health.

Dont know if u actually call it a company but hes the leader of the dental surgery center.

Its about the peoples mindset. Not them beeing a company or not.

Health = Necessity
Video Games = Luxury

AND EVEN IF THAT IS THE CASE
Health and medicine is still all about the money in the majority of the world, that's why you can't get prescribed THC oil when you have cancer because the is too much money in other forms of cancer treatment despite the fact that THC oil has been reported to rapidly aid the cure of several forms of cancer.

As much as you'd like to believe so Riot isn't ran by a bunch angelic self righteous bunch of lads and ladettes looking out for the greater good. They may have their own personal beliefs but in order to keep the company alive they need to make money, why is the company alive to begin with? To make money!

That's not to say the is no passion amongst the staff but to think that a competitive game like LoL with a rich E-sport scene and a business model based around inflated micro-transactions isn't looking to turn a profit then you're kidding yourself.

That being said, it's bad practice to make a promise in public and then not stick to it, that's pretty bad on several levels.

So your dad is a huge mutli dollar company?

The fact that your dad is NOT money hungry is why you are having money issuies.

Which brings it back to my point, if Riot wasn't money hungry,a lot of problems here would be solved, and some wouldn't even appear.
