Quoted:

Folks,

When we originally talked about a Facebook reward, we’d been envisioning something big. Ultimately, that vision couldn’t work – but we still wanted to give you something cool.

Clearly a 34% IP boost and a funny GIF wasn’t cool. We’re going to up the boost to 100% for the weekend.

We’re also disappointed in our communication on this topic, and we’re going to do better in the future.

Wow, I can't believe how much backlash Riot got for their original offer. Still glad they upped the boost though. I'd be interested to know what their original idea was going to be, but I can wait. Hopefully they release it some time in the future.
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

People were under the impression that we were going to get a double IP weekend in the first place. They also constantly put off the reward for over a year and it looked like they would put it off again as Merril said there would be an announcement by the end of May.

I don't think we'll see the original idea.

1. Why did this take you 6 months?

This boost weekend is actually one of a few ideas that we had originally, but we decided to do something much more complicated. Unfortunately, after a few months of development, our other reward just wasn't working due to unforeseen challenges caused by the recent Facebook changes. We had to put a hold on the project, and went back to the drawing board to figure out an alternative suggestion.

All that means is they decided to release something else (the IP weekend) instead of their original idea because it wouldn't be ready in time.

It's possible that they'll scrap it completely, but I hope not. D:
