I'm disgusted by companies who do things like this.

Its like this...."Oooh girl, I'm breaking up with you so you can study more. This is for your benefit."

Please, don't insult the players intelligence.
Please don't be so rude on this topic, Riot the developer of League offers this game for no cost what so ever. Like all businesses they need to be profitable to feed families and drive the economy as well. Unlike other games they put a lot of time and effort to continuously improving the game and removing toxic players. If you are so disgusted you need to really learn about how the business world works.... ECON 101 prices increase with demand

As they presented, they are lowering the price of the oldest 6300. In fact, they are down to 4800 already.

After every release of a new champion there will be lower price for the oldest 6300. According to the release data, it will be:

Yoric
Leona
Wukong
Skar, Skar, Skarner!
Talon
Riven - after 5th new release of 2013
(...)
Finishing at Nautilus as the last champion of 2013 (If they release at least 14, as they promised)

Will there be any new notices in the store to explain these changes to new players in the future? Once this thread is pushed off the homepage, will have an easy way to figure out how champion pricing works? I think this thread it is worth a link from the in-game store. I think the same thing applies to teaching new players about champion and skin sales to encourage them to keep up with news on the LoL website.

+1 Hippalus. You are now my favorite Rioter. : D

I've appreciated seeing some of the legacy skins brought back and other work you and other Rioters are doing for us. It will be nice to now have more of a set schedule of champion price reductions. I really like the first week ip price increase. Personally if I want a champ enough to buy them the first day I'll get the bundle. This has only happened once. It will be nice to encourage first day/week purchases to only those that seriously intend to play the champion.

Lee-Sin will be reduced in IP. SCREW YOU GUYS I JUST BOUGHT HIM!
Anyone who purchased these champs in the last two weeks will be refunded the difference.
I'm blushing...sorry for my outburst.
