Default A note about recent EUW server downtime & compensation

Surrender at 20: A note about recent EUW server downtime & compensation

Quote:
There has been another update on all the recent EUW server problems, including the announcement of an AMA about the issues and announcement of 20 Win IP boosts are compensation.

Here is Demorphic with the details:
"Hello community,
Recently, EUW experienced a pretty rough patch of degraded service and downtime, starting around May 18th and continuing off and on until recently. We've identified and mitigated the root cause of the issues, so wanted to take a moment to reflect on the situation a bit and talk about compensation!
As League players ourselves, we're keenly aware of how much it sucks when you can't log in and play. We know how it feels to get booted out of a game, or to lose a ranked game because the servers took a dive. It's intensely frustrating and frankly unacceptable.
The overwhelming growth of the League of Legends community has constantly surprised and humbled us. EUW in particular has been an extremely fast-growing platform, hitting new record peaks on a regular basis. As a result, we're kind of in uncharted territory when it comes to scaling an online game service. Occasionally this means things have broken in unexpected ways. Members of our technology team in Europe and back in Los Angeles have been hard at work to scale the infrastructure behind League of Legends and provide a game experience that meets your expectations.
We also know that communication to players on EUW hasn't been optimal, and that's been a problem for a long time. We're working on a comprehensive plan to improve this for European players (speaking of which, we've got 20 open positions for the community team in Dublin - come help us make the experience better for European players!). As a first step, we'll be holding an AMA on Wednesday with technology leadership at Riot to explain in more detail some of the problems we've found and solved. We will also talk about what goes into running the League of Legends service in Europe. Join us in General Discussion this Wednesday June 5 at 6pm GMT+1 with senior technical Rioters based in Dublin and LA. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the EUW server, come along and join in the conversation right here in General Discussion.
Finally, on the subject of compensation: we'll be giving a 20-win IP boost to all players who encountered issues on EUW between May 18th and May 30th. We hope you accept this as a gesture of apology for not only the most recent server issues, but also for the subpar experience players on EUW have had in recent months.
We want to thank you all for your understanding and for bearing with us as we battled those pesky yordles in our systems."

There's already an uproar over what like korea gets compared to EU and NA. Korea had like 4 days of downtime and got what a free skin a free 3150 champ and like 1000 rp i think just for that 1 like set of downtime. NA and EU really do seem to get jipped when it comes to compensation.


NOT saying the compensation isn't enough, just compared to what somewhere like korea gets, it kinda sucks. I'd gladly take my 20 win ip boost though.
