This is what I was nearly going to ask a question about. So with the slower release time will we see more frequent champion/item fixes? I used to play Renekton all the time, but have found his kit to be very lacking in the current meta. He's an extremely situational champion - which is disappointing.

Also, will freeing up designers from champion development lead to more maps/gametypes? Not that you all are doing a bad job. You're just doing such a great job that I am eager for more greatness!!!

Keep up the good work!

That's cool but who's going to buy a champion on release now? Seems kind of silly. I would rather wait a week and save 1500 ip.

about time something like this happened, if the first week price is the metaphorical price to drag the more obstinate money people into the 21st century of digital content then that's fine. (though seriously, the long term health of the game does require a lower barrier to entry then "HEY NEW GUYS, JUST PLAY RANDOM CHAMPS!"

I got brand on sale and Nocturne last week. Hope I get my refund here soon. Wish we could get the refund for ez and the others even if we had bought them before

I honestly think this was a great change. Although the new launch price is 7800 I don't mind. Its only 1 week before it changes back. And this way less people will have the new released champions. And there will be a lot of more price reductions this way :3 Every 3 new releases and a old champ gets reduced. Awesome .

When a new champion is released, will we also get a list of champions whose prices have been reduced?
