HAhahahaahahahaaha. Season 3 starter pack includes champs from Season 1 that are not popular. Plus a 1 day IP boost. LMFAO, fire your marketing team and hire me already.

And you should not be encouraging people to play Master Yi :|

And a cheap Yi skin, and the boosts. They wouldn't make a bundle if it was actually more expensive..

Riot gets a very big benefit from each of these sales: new player retention. Having a skin (even a mediocre one) and the feeling of a headstart is probably very good incentive for new players to stick around for at least a few weeks, long enough to progress decently along the learning curve and get to the fun parts. This is especially true if these were given as a gift from a personal friend who is there to play the game with you and help you understand it.
I suspect that this entire promotion was designed for precisely that reason and the $5 price tag is probably mainly to prevent it being useful for non-new summoners and to potentially cash in on christmas gifts by people who don't know that it's not worthwhile.

Master Yi alone is worth 5 dollars, and is by far the most legendary champion with or without a skin. This is a great gift idea as well as a compliment to the refer a friend program.

Excellent work Riot
