Riot's taken one measure after another to try and "clean up" the often-toxic League of Legends crowd. When all else fails, it seems, bribe 'em.
Summoners who are at least level five and had a clean record in 2014 -- defined as never having a chat restriction or being banned -- can now log in to claim their free gift. Even if you're like me and played only a couple of matches in 2014 -- which makes it hard for you to misbehave -- you'll receive the post-Christmas present: in my case, a skin for Jarvan IV.
I might argue that for it to really take hold, it needs to be implemented a little more regularly. Players who see this and think, "Gee, I wish I'd been nicer" will probably forget about it come the later part of the year when that noob on their team makes them unleash a string of obscenities. But in any case, it's nice to see Riot implementing some positive reinforcement to clean up their community.
I shared my gift... what did you get?
