Now to give you some insight. It's not the fact that you're making the increase. This just seems like one of those "We'll just make a soft increase now, see how it goes, then later we'll make a harder increase and it won't hurt them as hard."

It's sort of like a foreshadowing of sorts, we're afraid this is just a test for a more serious increase later down the line. You guys tend to test the waters with these types of things.

Anywho, like I said you all have you hooks in me and I just buy new champs right out of the gate, but I'll gladly raise the issue for those that can't.
This is the result of a few months of research and testing. It is not a test. My plan is to not think about champion pricing for the next year at least, as there are a lot of other challenges to address.

Aflaack, you should receive an automatic refund shortly from what I've read.

Also, will some of the older 3150's move down a tier soon?

Thanks,

for some reason im getting the feeling that 7800 for only the first week isn't going to be rule of thumb forever.

im okay with it, for now though, but i can kinda see writing on the wall at least given the track record.

Every three champ releases, a 4800 tier or below champion will be reduced by a tier.

Since it's only the first week with the increased price tag I'm fine with it since, you have the option to wait for the regular 6300ip tag or buy the bundle for the same price as before.

This will also help indirectly the people that complain that new champs should not be used on ranked.

Will this include from gifting a champion as well. For instance I gifted my wife Lux.

I don't understand why the champion IP cost is more for the first week. People who buy the champion on the first week, usually have been banking IP all alone, what's the point?
