It used to be 3150 IP = 487 RP, now it is 3150 IP = 790 RP? That doesn't seem like a change in a good direction.
Uh, no.

It used to be 3150 IP = 975 RP. On sale, it was 487 RP.

Before, 3150 to 6300 were all sold for 975 RP. Now they've lowered the RP costs of 3150 and 4800 IP champions so that the RP price declines at the same time that IP price declines.

If you are complaining about the new prices of brand new champions, just wait one week. You've played the game before a particular champion was released, I am sure you'll be just fine for one more week. Don't forget also that you will get him for even less if you wait a fraction of time longer. This is incredibly fair.
I can't +1 this enough.

I'm one of those people who only bought a champion after getting a chance to try him when he gets free week exposure. This change won't affect people like me at all.

The only thing it will do is reduce slightly the number of people who buy a champion right at launch, which I think is a good thing. Then, those who buy a champion right at launch have a better chance of getting to play him, and the rest of us have to put up with fewer queue dodges and fights over who gets to play the new champion or when the new champion gets banned.

The RP cost might go down but it's hardly proportional at all. 790 is still like 75% of 975 so the RP costs are still wacky... I understand not making them entirely proportional (487 for 3150) but it's still pretty out of wack imo...

It said if you got them within the 2 weeks of the price drop didn't it...

I don't like that.
There is no permanent 6300 IP champion.
I think that the 6300 IP champions are worth it to buy it.
Why Riot need to reduce the prices of champions?
I got 7 6300 IP champions now.
If Riot reduce the prices of every champions , I totally lost (6,300-4,800)x7 = 10,500
WT*?
I can buy two more 4800 IP champions...
And I can just refund 3 times...
I think that Riot should give us back the IP if the champions are reduced from IP 6,300 to 4,800...
It is not a good news~
