Yeah we hope this makes first week champion ownership a little more exclusive and less frustrating.

This plan is great for anyone with any amount of patience, myself being one of them. This is a win-win: patient people get cheaper prices and RIOT gets more money from people using RP the first week because they can't afford the IP.

Smart move and great for me. Thanks!

No, the forthcoming refunds are only for those who paid full price for the champions. And it may take us a couple weeks to get all the refunds processed, as we lowered the price on a lot of champions.

I like it. Should reduce first-day buyers and make it easier for the people who REALLY want to play a champ to play it without being swarmed.

I just wish RP/IP prices were balanced. 975 RP = 6300 IP, yet a 450 IP champ sells for 260 RP?

4800 ip champs should cost 743 rp
3150 ip champs should cost 488 rp
1350 ip champs should cost 209 rp
450 ip champs should cost 70 rp

Who else agrees?
