We're proud to share Gifting with you on the PBE! Gifting will allow you to unlock champions and skins for your friends and buy RP for them. You can even include a custom message.
We're still polishing up the feature, but think that at this phase your feedback and ability to find bugs in the system will be very valuable before the official release. Let us know about any problems you find so that we can make the release of Gifting awesome!
Quote:I'm pointing out an obvious abuse of their system.
This thread is supposed to be a place where you publish potential abuses. I'm doing that.
An abuse like this means that the gifting system needs to have some sort of restriction on it. Possibly making it so that you can't use the gifting system until level 10 or so would stymie any abuses under the idea which I expressed.
Quote:I think a possible idea for limiting abuse would to be make the required level to gift higher, maybe 10 or something.
This way if people want to "abuse" the system, they actually have to work for it. Though of course level 10+ players should be allowed to gift to their under 10 friends, and help them get on their feet.
Quote:Is there a chance we'll be able to hear about some of these reasons? Just curious.
Also, being able to gift with IP would be pretty phreakin' cool. Or do you not get along well with him? :P
I'd gift Irelia with a note saying "Tons of damage!"
As far as the reasons - they're varied. Some are technical, some are (believe it or not) player focused. It's not something we'll change for this release, but it's definitely on our minds.
Quote:Can you explain how the Gift RP works? I hope is tied to the RP you own and not fresh purchases each time, i would like to buy, let say 5000RP and the gift "X" amount to my friends.
Quote:I am unable to gift anything. I have tried to do it once before and it worked fine. Now after i tried it looks like its working but then nothing happens. It shows the working screen and then nothing happens and im back at the finalize screen. If i try to gift a champion that the recipient already has then it will tell me that they already have it and not go through. I have tried with both champions and skins and tried to gift to different people.
this happened right after i tried to join a custom game that didnt start and i tried logging off and back on between the tries.
Edit: It started working again after i bought something else from the store.
