EDIT: After 100+ pages and 2000+ upvotes, is it too much to ask Moneypenny or someone at Riot's financing office to give us a response concerning their new pricing scheme? After all, according to Tryndamere, transparency with your community is your policy.

I'm glad people are noticing the differences:

1. We are transparent - we admit when we make mistakes
2. We are active - because we care what you guys think
3. We are part of the community - not just people we hire to "manage" the community
I'm not the only one who wants a response from you, Riot:

I would like to see a red post on this and also explaining why there have been no 3150's in a while. At the very LEAST it is time to drop the price of some older champs.

This post reflects my own opinion and shares some insight into where Riot is going with RP.

I have personally given up on even trying to buy all the champions, it isn't worth the time or money.
And finally, a humorous contribution:

Most Chinese companies are big companies that make a lot of money.

Having 6k champions are an easy way to make more money.

Because being bought out by a Chinese company has complete relevance to how Riot prices their champions.
