I was pissed off for a second. I've been waiting since Sunday to buy a champ, and since there were no champ sales, I bought Vayne at like 3 AM last night. Then this pops up. I'm gonna be like 70 RP short of buying 2 champs and 2 skins this month and then the price of Vayne drops by 95 >_>.

But it's all k. Riot is refunding the difference. Good times. Otherwise awesome news. I don't buy champs release week anyway, and I'm not afraid to spend RP if I do..

"The seven oldest 6300 IP champions (Ezreal, Vladimir, Renekton, Nocturne, Lee Sin, Brand and Vayne) have all been reduced to 4800 IP/880 RP. As with all permanent price reductions, we’ll automatically refund the difference for anyone who’s purchased one of these champions up to two weeks prior to today."

still waiting on my rp difference refund on vlad,nocturne and brand

Holy ****, this is amazing news!

Ive always wanted skins, but decided to buy champions instead... Now I might actually be able to get some skins instead!

This is why I love you Riot.


EDIT: On that note, Riot plz, I need 23 RP for Pharaoh Amumu.

So shouldn't "accordingly" mean half the IP cost corresponds to half the RP cost?

I love what yeah did and all Riot but its a little unfair for people that have been playing the game for over two years that bot most of these champions on release -.-

Riot, please don't implement new champion launch prices. That's not cool. not very happy with this change.

I'm going to save this. I hope it'll keep you honest. Don't get fired or something stupid, so it'll apply for as long as possible.
