Shocked Riot didn't have the starter gift pack give new players 2250 IP and 7 day XP boost instead. Would give new plays a wider choice of champions to pick from. That would be a legendary starter pack to give someone. They could pick five of the 450 champions if the so choice, or two 1350, or one 1350 + three 450 champions, or they could save up for a 3150/4800/6300 champion.

My guess is Riot don't want people creating smurf accounts, but if someone is willing to pay $5 for the extra IP at the start, let them. If Riot worried about people abusing the recruit a friend by creating smurf account because of the extra XP boost. Just don't let Starter Packs count towards the recruit a friend option. (It takes 10 friends at level 10 to gain 975RP, not worth it)

Over all though the starter pack is still a nice deal for a gift to someone that is starting out. Saves them 2250 IP and 810 RP. $5 of RP is 650 RP. The starter pack is a starter pack. (Refer them, then you get your reward if you want something out of it)

While it's not the best deal ever I still think it's valuable and I know someone that I would like to give this to; however, I am not going to go purchase it at a store. Can you please make it available to purchase and give online, similar to how Steam gifts items.

Actually i think riot isnt worried for account smurfing, 5 dollars per smurf, i dont think ppl will even smurf that...

This idea sounds very nice, and at a glance it is not bad either. It would have been nicer if they received four lower-cost champions, and one high-cost champion which is chosen at random. That would make gift giving fun especially if I'm planning to buy for more than one person.

Give the gift of Demaciaaaaaaaaa!

To all the whiners out there:
Garen - is a great top. Used to be 3150 IP for the longest time
Ryze - Great mid
Annie and Ashe - Situational but good carries to learn with
Yi - even with wuju style he is outclassed currently

It's a decent deal for $5, although they could have included longer boosts or a support+jungle champ
