I've probably bought about $50 worth of RP and buying more was a distinct possibility. I like this game and I was fine with the direction it was taking during the Fall.

But feature delays, broad sweeping changes to game items, and these recent changes to make IP gain for Time < 38 minunte games are hard to accept.

Sorry Riot, if you want to play these manipulating games I'll just save my money. But I am glad you guys have resorted to different levels of "membership" yet and began a subscription model.

I like almost everything about the game, sure people ***** about champions, lack of features etc but it doesnt really bother me that much.

This IP change did, and seems like an indirect ploy to influence players to purchase more RP.

I'm simply asking because I think the graphs pretty clearly communicate that our intent was not to "raise prices" or do anything like that.

If there is a disagreement re: appropriate values, then we'll iterate to find the best approach.

Have you seen any of the posts stating that whether you intended to "raise prices" or not, that's what you've done? The new system isn't quite working out how you guys wanted, as TONS of people have said.

Hey Trynd. Can we get preseason normal stats back. The Top 3 most played champions with K/D/A would be nice to have back.

Bit offtopic I know.. but.. people want it back.

look at this thread: http://www.leagueoflegends.com/board...d.php?t=166144

700+ posts, 3500+ votes vor yes (bringing back the old stats screen for normals), 600+ upvotes.

Okay lets break this down:

Our Average Game Length is now lower due to 20 minute surrender

We get less IP for shorter Games

We are getting recurring 6.3k IP champs

IP boosts received a buff.

What's your conclusion?

A: Boosts have been changed so that they always grant a bonus which is equal to the maximum capped amount of XP or IP that can be earned with this new system.
This was you intent.

It's good to get a reply from you, Tryndamere, but the new IP system still has many, many flaws. Besides low IP gain bug, you actually get punished if you manage to win the game quickly.Seriously, why should I be punished for being a good player and winning the game in 18-20 minutes?
You have stated that you don't want long games, but you punish players if the game does not last at least 40 minutes.So, if I'm winning the game by the mark of 15-20 minutes, I have to torture the other team for at least another 20 minutes if I want a decent amount ot IP.
As soon as this is fixed, however, the new IP system will be better than the previous one.
Once again, thanks for your reply.
