Hippalus:
The summoner icons will be permanently given to players who purchase RP during the qualifying period.

No decisions have been made on whether these or other summoner icons will be available for future events.


In other words. If a significant amount of IP (probably a specific amount) is purchased during this period it will determine if this is indeed incentive to make summoner icons during holidays

Hey everyone.

Quite simply, this is a marketing experiment. Riot would like to see how people's buying habits change if they give out icons as an accessory to large RP purchases in an incentive to get people to buy.

Nothing changes if you don't buy anything, although it does kind of suck if you have a ton of RP already - Riot should make an option for people like these, certainly.

Through the five different icons, Riot is also trying to figure out how much of a difference a promotion like this makes - will people buy significantly more with the icons? How about when the cool new skins are announced? What does the data show?

I applaud this idea, because I'm glad to see Riot making money to run a game that I don't have to pay a cent for. Bravo.

You are not spending the RP on the icons... When you purchase RP you get the icon as a bonus depending on the amount of RP you have purchased. You still get the RP to spend on champs and skins.

I am not sure if this method is the best approach, I purchase RP in bundles of $100.00 at a time, and I have yet to run out of my previous RP supply. Having to purchase additional RP to participate in the promotional campaign is understandable, however there should be an option for people with a large amount of existing RP to unlock this content with existing funds, as opposed to purchasing more RP, on top of existing amounts.

Thoughts?
