"the age of eligibility according to the date of birth you listed on your account"
Like reddit is saying, Riot is about to find out everybody is born on January 1st...
I mean okay they have to do it because it's European law and stuff but this is a joke, right? Yes, Riot, I am 16 or older *twinkle*, no age verification needed. Why do it in the first place? To cover your ass against the European law? Isn't the checkbox Yes I am old enough with the registration enough already? How would this "new" system be any better?
If they were really concerned they'd have to implement a real age verification system which bites with player anonymity.
