And one more piece.

On Crafting
Not sure what they were talking about relating to “crafting” other than we want players long term to be able to make weapons. That won’t be there at launch.

Re: Chinese Interview with John Smedley


folks - please relax. this is just bad translation. I have no clue how the guy doing the interview mixed up the part where he asked me what I thought of Blizzard's RMT Auction house. That was not part of the PS2 discussion at all. We have no plans to put anything like that in PS2. The game will be F2P. What form will it be? We're still working that out. But here's a hint - we like League of Legends a lot.

Thanks Smed for clearing it up Really fast.

For anyone who does not know.

League of Legonds has 2 systems yet the game is 100% Free 2 Play.
Influence points and Riot Points

Influence points are earned by simply playing the game, allowing players to purchase runes that will enhance their powers, much like experience points as well as using these points to buy new Champions.

Riot Points are purchased using real currency and exchangeable for new Champions to play and cosmetic enhancements.

thanks for the clarifications!

now we finally have some news to be happy about ;-)

guys, no comments on the first official beta timeframe bits????
that was the best part od the interview for me ;-)
finally we know that beta is ahead in the next few months!

judging by the low gamescom and dragoncon presence i really feared beta would be years away.

kind regards
shogun

21 is only half the truth

Tigersmith touched on it a few posts above.

Riot points = $$ (Used on Skins, EXP boosts)

Influence points = experience gained by playing the game. Used to buy characters and runes. Runes make characters more powerful albeit at a very slight %.

Hmm, LOLs system? WEll, to be fair, i heard only good things about the way they did it. BUt i still prefer a Subscription pared with a fooder thing. But the end goal is to actually have those 2000 guys per continent, so whatever, just give me the stuff.

I think LoL dances around 5 million active accounts so the system apparently works fairly well.

I really like this system. It really does not give you power if you buy stuff. But it just makes it easier for you to get. I would 100% be on board with this.
