So... you're suggesting a lottery with an extremely high winrate? Wouldn't this be pretty similar to just creating an RP-->IP option in that case? If it isn't then the lottery is still a tax for those bad at math. There is no way to adjust the odds properly.

Not sure if trolling or retarded...

>100 people pay 100 IP each for a ticket
>One person gets 10000 IP
>Expected payout is 10000 IP/100= 100 IP
>1:1 ratio

learn math before you talk about it bro

Let's call it advertising then. What if Riot had some kind of lottery based on playing games of Dominion or Twisted Treeline? You pay a small IP fee, like ~50 per game, and at the end of the week the entire pot will be distributed between say 1000 randomly chosen Summoners. Or maybe if you choose to participate in the lottery, the IP you would have gotten from playing (excluding bonuses or FWotD) is automatically put into the pot.

That way you get your lottery, and Riot can encourage people to play the less popular game modes.

Reading comprehension not your strong point?
I was talking about something mentioning RP.
So you're suggesting riot give the potential to completely remove the grind for one player at random any given day? Yeah that makes solid business sense.

I bet this sounded like a cool idea in your head, but you didn't think it through.

I'd rather LoL didn't turn into Neopets.

My guess is that the IP prize will be 100% of the pot, so if anything it's just transferring IP from other users. I see nothing wrong with this.

1. When did either of us mention RP lol
2. That's what lotteries are in real life. Paying for a chance to escape from the "grind". How does this not make business sense? The only thing is does is redistribute the IP. The community still has the same amount of IP on average, thus will still buy RP the same amount on average.

p.s. I like the single downvote on my previous post, I wonder who that was from...
