Then why are all new champions released at the 6300 price tag? Are we ever going to see this change?

Hey Hippalus! I would like to know one thing... if you guys change the rune prices for something lower, the players that already had bought all runes will receive the difference between the new price and the price that he paid for?


No. I'm fairly certain there is not a single company in the world that does that, because it doesn't make any sense. If a company charges $5 for a virtual item, or a computer game, or a book, or a hamburger, and then decides to lower the price to $4 at some point, they don't give $1 to everyone that ever purchased it. Because then they might as well have priced it at $4 all along and avoided the hassle of massive numbers of refunds.

Video games are probably the simplest example. We know when we buy them that they will be cheaper in the future, but we buy them because we want to play them now and we'll get to enjoy them longer than the people who wait until the price comes down. That doesn't mean we feel ripped off and the game company should refund us all when the price is inevitably lowered.

At Riot, we sometimes make an exception for people who buy something right before the price is lowered or it goes on sale. That is more than most companies do.

I always wonder why reds always answer obvious questions but never answer any relevant ones.

So it becomes relatively difficult to get champions for free? SO there is some kind of incentive for players to buy RP but they can still get it for free if they try hard enough?
It fits exactly what riots business plan is. Obviously. It's really... greedy... on your part to complain about that

Will they give us RP or something for Christmas or New year?

question/plea - can you make some sort of comment on permanent ward skins? we've heard nothing for ages....

also, mini-question, why do no ad carries have legendary skins (not counting PFE as legendary).

Hi Hippalus.
I posted this question on the poll thread for the January Summoner Appreciation Sale.
But This seemed a better spot for it;
Would it be possible to roll RP cards into 1 purchase to get the maximum amount of bonus RP? for example take two $25.00 USD RP cards and treat it as purchasing a $50.00 USD RP from the store?

Question: How difficult would it be to alter an in-demand skin like Kitty Kat Katarina into a "second edition" for newer players? For example, same costume and in-game model but different fur color.

This way, there would be a reasonable compromise for everyone: The first edition would still be limited, but newer players will have something like it.
