Riot Games is a great company but I'm not impressed with how the champions all cost 6300 IP. If there is anything that players truly want its cheaper champions (IP). Well, on a personal level, i think it would be nice if Nidalee got some love. Her model/animations are old and probably the blockiest looking in the game. Her picture hasnt changed at all (not that I mind, the new tryn picture is not to my tastes) and she hasnt seen a new skin in... well, a long time. No more teemo skins!

Edit: I have spent a lot of money on RP over the years but only rarely have I purchased champions with them. Usually when I did it was a double bundle or something like that. I believe that I have only actually bought a champion with riot points once, maybe twice after two years of playing this game. The vast majority of my riot points goes into buying new skins; I love the different looks the champions can have and I'm a bit of an addict when it comes to kog maw skins. I think I own 3 or 4 of them which goes against my policy of only buying one skin per champion. But hey, better skins keep coming out! I'm not an addict... I swear! Just one more skin... My point with this edit is to reinforce the view that most players don't actually buy champions with rp. I could be wrong of course, only Riot Games has access to the demographics but most of my friends spend riot points on skins and only rarely on champions. Therefore this RP reduction, which might end up in a few more players buying the champion and making riot money (this is good, Riot is a business afterall) doesnt have quite as great an effect as the promoters of it thought it would. I had the thought a long time ago that for every 6300 point champion that comes out from now on, the oldest 6300 point champion gets reduced in price. Or the oldest 3150 point champion or etc. Unfortuneatly either no one read my post or nobody cared. I would ask that everyone who objects to this post by Riot Games do so politely; Riot Games is still an amazing company thats built a (mostly) free game for us all to play.

Didn't know anyone actually spent on RP on older champions. Thought I would get Kass or Rammus for 1350 IP.

If riot expects us to be happy about how low the reductions are... this is really sad. How can they think we are that stupid to grovel at their feet for a 100rp reduction

Traditionally, only for IP reductions. As in, if you bought swain for 6300 IP and they lowered him to 4800 IP the next day, you would get the difference. I've nvr heard of them giving the difference for RP reductions, but then again, RP reductions are pretty rare, so I may be proven wrong.

I thought they would never do IP reductions anymore considering that it wasn't announced for around 3 months or more, now I can be really sure of that.
Fail announcement.

More like "gently rubbing".
