Riot have shut down a fan-made League Of Legends classic host - and so were creepy about it

Chronoshift was a fan-made"heritage server" that recreated League Of Legends as it was ten years ago, allowing people play an older version of the game that is no more accessible.

Now the job has been shut down from Riot. In a post on the Chronoshift website, its developers say they have received legal takedown notices from the LoL developer, but just after a Riot staffer touch base with one of these through Discord to try to shut down the job without the participation of lawyers. To quote the Riot employee:"You have obviously put a lot of work into Chrono shift, but I assure you that the Chrono fracture is coming"

At the time of writing, the Chronoshift site is prompting a warning in Chrome the website is insecure. Last night, the site was taken down and replaced by a message from the development group explaining the project's closed and alleging the"Riot Games security department has contacted us, and tried to extort us into handing over our code and site into them". A Riot rep verified to PC Gamer that the conversation took place but refused extortion.

In the Discord conversation, zed starts by saying that,"The Riot Games legal team isn't super thrilled about your job unfortunately and is looking for a means to come to a mutually acceptable end to it." The dialog proceeds amicably for a scant few messages, until it appears as if Lothendran or a different Chronoshift developer begins to delete items from the Discord server. Zed's tone clearly changes at this stage. (You may read the entire chat by clicking the picture to the right.)
