Remove tier 1, tier 2 runes and the combiner.

You guys tossed out malady with naught but a wave of your hand... and these things are even worse for the game. Wasting gold on noob trap item isn't nearly as bad for the game as wasting ip on noob trap runes... and then re-wasting them by using combiner.

Completely useless, it needs to be either removed or redone, because in it's current state, it's far better to simply buy tier 3 runes.

It is terrible and should be removed for something that is actually good. Like even something that you could sell old runes for even half price would be more useful than what it is now.

hey folks,
Thanks for all the passionate responses. It'll take some time for me to comb through them.

Either way, I am not a designer. Just curious if everyone had the same sorta nostalgic love for it that I do

evidently not ;P

I really like this idea -- runes "leveling up" as your summoner level does. I reiterate it here because it deserves some attention. It has its pro's and con's sure, but I think it deserves some thought.

It needs to build things into tier 3 and it needs consistency.

Are any of you old enough that you remember it being The Way to get better runes?
I once gambled 3 Tier 3 mana runes and got a Tier 3 mana rune.

I have never looked at it since.

I actually ended up forgetting about it.
I used it a few times though.
Worst idea ever.
