Gifting Extended till the end of Snowdown Showdown

Due to popular demand, we have extended the availability of the gifting feature in the Store through the end of Snowdown Showdown on January 6. Only summoners that were on your Friend list at the start of the Snowdown event can be gifted. Snowdown summoner icons will continue to be rewarded for your first gift of RP, a champion, or a skin.

We hope to bring gifting back permanently in 2013 once we have evaluated its impact on account fraud and hacking, and taken any necessary additional steps to protect your accounts.

Vi Bug Fixes

FFFFFFF so THAT'S what it was. No wonder I could never repro it...
Will fix when everyone gets back to the office.
Also will fix Q losing its CD when you get stunned.
Also will fix Q not refunding mana when canceled.
Also will fix other bugs. FEAR NOT!

No offense but shouldn't these things been found out during testing? These seem like very easy things to detect how did she get released with these problems?
Yes, they should have. Bugs are going to happen but that doesn't mean it sucks any less when a player runs into one and has it adversely affect his/her game. This is my fault. 

As a rookie designer I'm constantly learning new things about how our game works. When I heard that people were stopping when using Q I went and tried to repro the thing for a couple hours using move commands/smart casting/what have you. Did not realize having an autoattack target would affect a champion's motion in a totally different way from a normal move command and not allow you to continue after casting Q. Now I know. I'll fix this for Vi ASAP and make sure to never let it happen again on any of my future champs.

You have my apologies
