It's like you tried to define a formal grammar based on fragments of a raw database dump from the QuickBooks file of a company that's about to collapse in an accounting scandal.

"Uruguay decriminalized dueling in 1920, and in that year José Batlle y Ordóñez, a former President of Uruguay, killed Washington Beltran, editor of the newspaper El País, in a formal duel fought with pistols."

How very convenient...

Why does Riot continue to make excuses for stripping things out of their game? Just add custom game support already, just like Dota 2 has and you'll be set. Let the players choose what modes are good and what ones die out.

Security on-site was a pretty cool fellow. Granted, they NEED security, as well as to fire everyone behind the counter who can't be bothered to do their job. Worst time I've ever had, even at fast food levels it was neither fast nor good.
