去年 8 月，Riot Games 和夥伴 Garena 一起將《英雄聯盟》推廣到台灣市場，當時我們對於這份合作，抱持著相當興奮的心情以及正面的態度。
然而，你們熱情的程度遠遠超過了我們的預期，《英雄聯盟》在台灣戰區短短 6 個月的時間裡，居然累積超過了 100 萬位召喚師、平均每分鐘同時有 129 場比賽正在進行！
我們感到無比的光榮，同時也為了感謝大家對於《英雄聯盟》的支持，讓我決定親自到台灣，僅代表整個 Riot Games 團隊向所有參與這份成就的召喚師說一聲：謝謝！
無論是 Riot Games 或是 Garena 的團隊都十分理解，如果《英雄聯盟》想要繼續保持如此的結果，唯一的路就是持續進化這款遊戲。我期待能夠在接下來的 2012 裡頭，與大家分享更多更刺激的精彩遊戲體驗！

Summoners of Taiwan –
When Riot Games and Garena launched League of Legends in Taiwan last August, we were excited and optimistic. We were excited because from all of our experience with Taiwanese gamers, we knew they would be competitive and eager to provide feedback – which we love! We also knew League of Legends had been well-received in other parts of the world, and so we had high hopes.
However, your support has exceeded our expectations tremendously! Six months later, League of Legends is now played by over one million gamers in Taiwan. Every minute, 129 games are played in Taiwan! We have been humbled and honored by how quickly Taiwanese gamers have adopted League of Legends, and I am coming to Taiwan to thank you, the gamers, for making this happen. I also am looking forward to seeing first-hand at how gamers enjoy League of Legends here in Taiwan – and to hear directly from Taiwanese gamers what they’d like to see in League of Legends in the future!
Riot and Garena both understand that we have to continue to improve League of Legends in order for it to be successful, and look forward to sharing an exciting 2012 with you!
