So recently I was thinking about the fact that I have some champions who I thought I'd like originally when I purchased them, however as it time went on I ended up not liking them, and I was talking with a friend who then happened to say they wanted the champions aforementioned and wished that they themselves had them. So I came up with the idea of Champion Trading. Now I had some specifications about how the trading would work to keep it fair, and to avoid people abusing the 400 RP given at level 3. These rules would be quite simple.

First, In order to trade champions, level 20 is required for both summoners.

Second, Differences in champion price are required to be made up in either RP, or IP. The decision of whether IP or RP is used to make up the different would depends on what the champions were purchased with. For Example, If Summoner John was trading Ahri (975 RP 6300 IP) to Summoner Jen, who in return was Giving him Katarina (790 RP 3150 IP), the different would be made up by either 185 RP, or 3150 IP, and it would depends on whether JOHN (Who has the more expensive champion) bought Ahri with IP, or RP.
(this is to keep people from gaining free RP, thus essentially abusing the trade system for the RP)

Third, In order to also keep Champion trading from being abused by those who want to just buy champions to try them out, then trade them away, There could be a small 200-250 RP Fee, or 450-500 IP Fee for each trade, in order to keep people from simply buying one champion, then constantly trading the champion away when they get bored or if the feel they don't like it.
(Each Summoner could possibly receive 1-3 free trades to begin with, alongside the 3 refunds given in the shop.)

Fourth, As we all know, when you buy a champion, if you have the RP you may also buy skins! So as an addition to champion trading, there could be an option to include Skin trading, or selling. For example, having a 390RP White Mage Veigar skin included in a trade to make up some of the different in champion pricing. Or simply selling the champion skin for a discounted price in RP then what it was originally purchased for. So that 390RP Veigar skin, could be sold for say 300 RP on this market.
(Discounted selling prices included in order to keep this system from basically being a free refund)

Lastly, another addition I had thought would be very useful would be simply the ability to SELL a champion, however in order to keep people from simply buying champions with IP then selling them for RP, purely selling champions in exchange for IP. I feel this ability would need restrictions again such as level 20 only. The reason I would include this is because I feel it would greatly benefit those who are level 20 with champions to spare because by doing this, people could exchange their unused champions for IP, and then use the IP to buy the level 3 runes that only become available to those summoners at level 20.


So to Wrap it up, I think that the idea of being able to trade champions, and such things as skins, if using proper rules to keep this system from becoming abused, can turn out to be a great way to not only get people to start more so communicating with the other summoners, but to not have to feel as though money is wasted when buying a champion, only to find out that they greatly dislike the champion, or even dont feel like playing them and want to still have gained something for buying them.

Please Tell me what you guys think, I think I thought it through well enough to keep people from abusing the system by adding discounted prices and small fees, but alas I am sure that there are still ways in which the system could be improved.

If any of you wish to talk to me personally about my ideas, My Summoner name is obvious, I am on the North American servers, As well feel free to send me a message and I can share my skype to talk more in detail.

This is an amazing game and I personally love to play the game with my friends, or better yet make new friends through matches. Thank you Riot for creating such a wonderful game, I only hope that my idea may solely improve the game for my fellow summoners.

Also Special thanks to Player support specialist Twinkleberry for being the first to listen to my ideas and encourage me to post them on the forums, and not just brushing it aside as "yet another silly suggestion" as most support lines do for games (Clearly Riot knows how to run customer support!)

Thank you for reading,

tl;dr - We trade unwanted champions.

I do not agree with this and so my vote reflects that. Summoners are given 3x refund options to negate champions/ purchases that they no longer want & champions are also provided on a trial basis through weekly rotations. This is asking too much.

Thank you for your opinion :P Duly Noted. I still feel though that it would be a good idea and warmly welcomed by most players, because as we all know the refunds dooooo run out.

I think that there should be a warning and you should not have to pay for trading i recentlly got my brothers account and he spent alot of money on the game i think skind trading should be implemented with a
rp limmit of what the skins worth and free 2 options. My brothers account has championship riven olympic veigar and jax aswell as an ahri skin i want. Overall your idea is good but can be improved

This is an absolutely great invention. Let freedom reign, Riot! And allow us to reponsibly handle our purchases with each other

This is just so amazing.

I think your idea is pretty nifty. There would obviously be details to work out in the implementation. My worry is that something like this would affect the the prices of champions when they go on sale. I think champions you buy when they're on sale should be untradeable to stop LOL from turning into a champion market simulator. Just my thoughts though. The idea overall I like, I just worry that it might mess up systems that are already in place.

I feel that this would honestly make a game that is intended to be based around strategy not only that, but a marketplace as well. This would make the game much more complicated than it really needs to be.
