The team at Riot wanted to create an online, multiplayer-focused game that would keep growing, changing and evolving indefinitely. And it wanted to make that game free, funded by optional micro transactions. In 2007, traditional game publishers had barely heard of such a model, much less considered it viable.

We all saw the news, where the focus was all the riots, about how they were destroying the shops, we all wonder, why? In my opinion it is unemployment – the youth are bored and disillusioned. Cause the percent for unemployed in UK is going down, and for that the young people without job are now saying stop, they want more jobs, and so they can earn money to live for and to provide their family.
