Sit tight, MMO fans, as there's a shocking revelation we're about to unleash on you. Ready?
You may not like everything in a hotly anticipated upcoming MMORPG.
I know, I know, after so many years and so many flawless MMOs, like Bless Online, WildStar, and ArcheAge that were so completely perfect that nobody complained about any part of them at all, it's come to light that the "next big thing" might not completely please everyone. I know, I'm as amazed by this as you are!
This dubious acknowledgement about the upcoming League of Legends MMORPG comes from none other than Riot's own Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street, who posted the following to Twitter (as spotted by Massively OP):
One thing I can say about "unannounced" MMORPG is that you won't all love every feature in it. We're going to make some choices that you may not agree with. Players want different things in their games. That's fine. Some of you (shudder) may not love the game at all. Also fine.

Sarcasm and snark aside, Street's absolutely correct, though his salient point will probably be cast aside once marketing for the game shifts into high gear in a few years and Riot tries to convince prospective players that the game is perfect and made for everyone, because that's what marketing does.
He's referred to his World of Warcraft background on a couple of occasions, even in a reply to that tweet, which leads one to believe that the League of Legends MMO will resemble that game more so than it tries to break from convention. If you like WoW, that's great. If you don't, well, see above (though he may have softened his stance on difficulty just a bit).
Street's got a lot of other interesting replies in that thread, as pertains to leveling, Tencent's influence, "maining" a single game, and even petting crabs, so check it out for some intriguing insights into the development of what's guaranteed to be everyone's favorite MMORPG ever -- unless it isn't.
