And making Ward skins temp isn't?

Does ward skins give you special in-game power advantage?

You're pretty much forced to buy champions, EVERYONE does, and yet, buying one with RP effectively gives you 6.3K IP, three of them and you have enough for a full, very expensive, runepage.
I don't understand. How is Riot forcing you to buy champions?

I have never felt "forced" to buy champions (with RP). I have bought a few over the years, but by and large I have gotten most of my 80 something champs with IP.

I think I love you Kiddington. Because you are right, and community babies don't realize it.

Citation needed.

My personal feelings are along the lines of "why would anyone ever buy a champion with real money when they can get it with IP?"

I have 20k IP and nothing that I really want to spend it on immediately, at least until Elise comes out.

However I do feel that newer players have their work cut out for them.

Kiddington, what they're trying to say is:

If you buy a champion with RP, that you already have the IP for, you pretty much just gave them 6300 for 975 rp. so in a sense, you ARE converting the RP to IP, just indirectly, I've bought many champs with RP. I'm the only one of my friends who have more than 4 rune pages. sooooz that might have something to say about it

Edit: also with the forcing to buy champions thing, you NEED to have champions to play draft games, and ranked games, you cant play them without a certain amount.

I remember those times :P

Getting 18 champions by level 30 isn't really hard.

not the point, the point is, instead of using IP, you saved it, and bought champs with RP, look how much IP you have for runes, ergo, buying power
