Our Starter Pack (Source: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/news/l...new-summoner):

  • $5.00
  • Garen, Ashe, Ryze, Annie, and Master Yi
  • Skin: Assassin Master Yi
  • 1-Day IP Boost
  • 7-Day XP Boost

Singapore Starter Pack (Source: http://lol.garena.com/news/news/1210...-pack-launch):
  • $4.90 (Which converts into $4.08 in US)
  • Ahri
  • 100RP (Which roughly converts into 325 RP)
  • 4-Win IP Boost
  • 10-Win XP Boost

(╯□)╯︵ ┻━┻

"The Difference?" Explanation:
  • Singapore's starter kit is "cheaper" by $1; however, Singaporeans are still paying "$5.00".
  • Iconic 5 characters that MADE LoL, or a fun 6300 champion which will most likely get PICKED all the time?
  • 390 skin you don't want or a 520RP (when it's on sale) skin where you get to pick which one you want.
  • Is your friend really going to play ALL day to take advantage of that 1-Day IP Boost? He probably doesn't even like the game (yet) to even play more than 2 (40 min) games.
  • K, same deal as the IP Boost, with these starter packs, its most likely going to be like a "Play for One Day" kind of thing for them...7-Day XP Boost will probably expire before the next time they play again.

Again for dramatic purposes: (╯□)╯︵ ┻━┻
Also, Singapore players can buy Kitty Kat Katarina...like..now. (Source: http://lol.garena.com/news/general/1...-skins-on-sale)

Cause their dollar is maybe worth a dollar, where in Merica, it's ****. When our government sees a problem they raise taxes thinking it will solve things. lol.

Edit: can't type c.r.a.p. O.o

Edit 2: Who cares.

Because i think the 7 day xp boost is monumental in comparison to a 10 win

Riot has NA in the bag already so we get the promo shaft now while it flows like milk and honey into other countries. It's what happens when your sole focus is $$$

Example: You want your sister to start playing LoL with you. She doesn't really like these kinds of games, but you see potential.

You get her the starter pack with the 7-Day XP. She's also a very busy person and can't spend a lot of time playing video games. She plays one game (because she's busy) and logs off. IDK she has a business trip, can't play for 2 weeks. Bye XP boost.
