This is, overall, a price reduction, even with the temporary inflation. And I never buy champs immediately anyway, so...

Good going Riot. +1

That's awesome! Thanks Riot. I have all of them but Renekton, Brand and Vayne, so I guess I'll be picking her up, at least.

Oh, so... They are giving us more time to farm more IP? You do realize this change just costs us more time, right?

Regardless, I'm glad we're finally getting regulamentation over price reductions.

Oh god.. Ezreal cheaper? Riot's most money making champion from popularity and skins cheaper?

edit: maybe this will somewhat stop the massive amount of people playing new champs on release. Some people will want to get after the week to save up IP.
So not only do we have to wait longer for new champions to come out, but we have to wait another week after that to buy them at normal price. That is a bad thing

I actually really like the 7800 thing on first week. It benefits Riot by encouraging people to buy the champion with RP if they really want to buy it early and it benefits the players as a whole because discourages "impulse" buys and an over-saturation of the new champs seeing play (at least for the first week).

Out of the damn park Hippalus! That ball landed in a nearby industrial complex!

Great work. Very happy Riot's got you around. Hilariously I only don't own Vladamir. Ah well this will make it easier to catch up and hit 100% champions...over time.

the 7800 price point is strictly just to make impatient people buy new champs with rp to make more money the first week

Glad to see Hippalus doing something right!

Now that "reducing 4800ip pricing to 450ip," I'll believe it when I see it. If any 4800 ips are ever reduced to lower than 3150, I'll **** a brick.

The thing I'm most excited about, though, is that there's going to be more time within new champs. LoL needed that desperately.
