Pure capitalists? Cause I thought they simply added some capitalist-inspired incentives to their eonomy, not embraced caitalism as a whole.

sigh they don't have democracy that doesn't mean that they are communists. THAT'S NOT THE SAME THING.

But if you repeat a lie often enough...

I'm also pretty sure that Riot is still largely independent from Tencent. Riot made these prices, not Tencent.
You mean the "IP over time" graph presented in this thread?

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/...d.php?t=607571

As far as I'm concerned, the only thing the chart did was calculate the total IP earned amongst players over a period of 7 days. It didn't factor in any other variables, such as average game length or average number of games/day. People could've easily played more games after the patch to make up for the IP rework.

Also doesn't help that Riot advocates exciting early games and has been looking to make games go faster, when the new system only gives more IP if a game extends past the 37 minute mark. (Note, this value has been proved by several player charts)

Well why would you buy a company if you don't want to make a bigger profit on it.

Doesn't matter if they were Chinese.
