I know this is going to sound odd but can you make a teir 6 one for 20,000 RP?

Next time someone goes "hurrrr you spend moneies on this game??" I can just put on the teir 6 icon on with pride and let that answer the question.

I respect your efforts Hippalus, but these new marketing schemes contradict the reasons why League of Legends has been successful so far. Randomly offering IP sales for rune pages with little to no forewarning and a short time limit causes players to hoard ip instead of using them to get new champions. Having temporary skins for wards with IP makes this game's real money purchasing system feel a lot like typical MMO's marketing system. Selling summoner icons by way of massive RP purchase does the same thing. The reason why League of Legends' business model was so successful was because it worked and seemed fair. I like that you're introducing new things for consumers to buy but the method in which they are obtained seems "cheap". Like all other LoL visual upgrades, they should be permanent and there should be a method to purchase them individually. You may end up making more money initially simply because they're new things to buy, but the current system works for a reason.

So I just logged in. No new icons. Do I need to relog, or is there a problem with the distribution?
I purchased:
5000 On October 8th
1380 On October 17th
1380 On October 19th

So I should have access to everything but Vengeful Wrath, but I don't have access to any of them.

It is how they make money, if they gave everything out this game wouldn't be half as good as it is or nearly as rich in content. I do wish they would have let us keep the championship icons though as a way to support the e-sport teams, but oh well
