Buying the game AFTER playing for free?

I have been playing for a while (Summoner Lever 23) but I have spent most of my IP on runes and very few on heroes. I was wondering if I could still buy the game and add all the extra champions (I would get all but the 3 I have already bought) to my current account.

I know I could just click the bundle page and buy it with just straight RP, but its actually cheaper just to buy the game outside and use a code (if there a code to put in?)

Plus, I usually spend real money to get RP for skins (they're awesome!) so I'd really like the Judicator skin that comes with buying the game.

My main question is if I can go buy the game at my local store and just add it to my free account.

Any insight appreciated!

Thanks, Pharmacist

Last question, can you purchase the code to do this online similar to upgrading accounts in other games or do I need to physical go buy it at my local store?

Thanks again!

I've been playing since August and I've bought a few cheap heroes and some runes with IP. I finally broke down and bought 5k riot points and the champion bundle a few days ago. I figure it's well worth the price since it takes up almost all my free time. :X

you can buy it online. Riot offer's the full version on their website(comes with the Dark Annie skin instead though) and should be applied to your account right away.

You've still not fixed it for EU players

I thought we were meant to be able to buy it? Seriously, money burning a hole in my pocket :P

You could also use Visa to pay for it on-line like I did. *cheers for international payments*
