I JUST bought Kog'Maw. Like, seriously, I've played 3 games with him. Should I be seeing some RP coming my way in the near future?

Hope you manage to find to a sensible middle grounds... because the price tiers, as laid out now, make very little sense tbh.

975 RP -> 65 champs costing 6300, 4800, 3150 IP (including old S1 champs)
880 RP -> 2 champs, both 4800 IP
850 RP -> 2 champs, both 4800 IP
790 RP -> 4 champs, 4800, 3150 IP
690 RP -> 2 champs, both 3150 IP
585 RP -> 21 champs, all 1350 IP
280 RP -> 10 champs, all 450 IP

It's not about whether a champ is worth more or less in-game, or how powerful they are. It's about perceived value. If you have set different prices in in-game currency, then people will expect the RP currency price to be scaled similarly, and assume the value of a lesser priced champ to be lower than a higher priced champ, and will tend to use RP for 63400s and IP for 3150s.

Why not all 6300 Champions be 4800? It puts players who have been playing less than two years at a disadvantage.
