I thought it would be a sweet idea if there would be a way to "give" Riot points to other LoL summoners. This would allow informal tournaments and a way to reward members of a gaming community to have a LoL branch.

Our community is attempting such a feat, but as of now, there is no system set up to do this. There are concerns such as people transfering there RP to one account; but if they bought it, does it really matter?

This is entirely possible to code into the current client, although it would take some time.

I'd like to hear your comments, and feel free to check our gaming community out here <-----

Oh, and Upvote this to make it more visible to Riot and let them know we are interested!

Sounds like a sweet idea!

great idea. That would prevent people giving money to themselves as much. Most people wouldnt go to the effort of getting level 30 just to give themselves rp

Why would it matter, if you buy the rp with money, who cares who you give it to?

You can! At least, outside the client. You can purchase an RP card at places like Best Buy and Target and give someone the code. We recently started selling RP cards at Walgreens and a few other places as well; I see them at 7/11 all the time, so it's possible there's a place near you that has one.

If your tournament is big enough (less informal, at that point), you can also apply to be a Prized Event and get some support from us. You have to be a pretty big tournament for that one, though. As a fansite, you can also send an email to fansites@riotgames.com to see if you qualify for any kind of support from them as well.

I'll pass on your suggestion to our eCommerce director, since it has potential impact on the RP/IP economy. However, Gifting is actually quite a trixy feature, and there are some potential security concerns we'd have to work out first.

Right now, if someone gets into your LoL account, the worst thing they can do is troll a few games. Maybe buy a ton of Tier 1 runes. However, add gifting, and suddenly there's a really good reason to break into your account: they can now steal RP. It has the potential to grow a black market for RP, and as our player base grows, you guys become pretty juicy targets.

If we were to add gifting, we would make sure to figure out a way to block or mitigate that kind of activity. So, it's a big IF to begin with and likely very far out if we decide to do it.

Edit: Also, to quote the eCommerce Man himself:

There is your problem.
Make it so RP gifts can ONLY be given at the time of purchase; and only to a player online at the time of the "gifting" on your friends list.

basically no RP saved can be gifted, only RP in the process of being purchased.

Bam, your issues with the system are now resolved.
