Good stuff. I approve.

Companies need to make money, as long as the champions they're releasing are on par with the last 6 they've done, i'm fine with paying for a champion I want to play "now".

Will there any refunds for people who have bought the champs that are reduced with RP? If not, that is fine but i'm simply curious.

Considering how more often than not the new releases tend toward the far overpowered range of the spectrum, seems like a step toward selling power, which Riot said it would never do.

The way I see it, Riot has been giving PLENTY of advance notice on new champions. I had time to save up for Vi after buying Nami and Warwick and still had 3800 leftover, and that was with my playtime taking a severe dip over the last week.

The new pricing makes it so that you'll only buy it on the first week/day if you REALLY want that champion...this could be a helpful or a harmful plan...but I'm okay with that. It's not that severe, and if you want to wait and see, you can comfort yourself with the knowledge that you'll be saving IP.


Also, considering the fact that I picked up Nidalee in the same time frame (it was a Nidalee-Nami-Warwick-Vi window) and got her for the same low price despite a visual upgrade shortly after I got her...yeah, I'd say you're a fair company, Riot.

I'm going to be sad in two months when Leona is no longer a 6300. She's going to feel old. T_T
