Edited: Derp, didn't see there were multiple posts from Hippalus.

I like these changes. The initial week of increased IP cost will be good overall I think. It will let people who are a bit more on the fence or who would prefer to wait get the opportunity to see the champion in action to potentially stave off an impulse by that ends up regretted. It will also make it a bit more rewarding for purchasing the champion with RP in that first week and give it a bit more of an exclusive feel. If you want a champion that badly with IP that is about to come out, we get a few weeks of notice nowadays for new champions. A few extra wins worth of games shouldn't be a huge deterrent if you are really and truly excited for a champion and don't want to spend RP to purchase them. Excellent work Hippalus, these changes are fantastic. Thank you!

Now I'm anxiously awaiting a compiled list of champion launches to help me figure out what champions are coming up next for reductions.

Are you guys ever gonna make the skins available for IP. I understand that is the way you make most of your revenue, but it would make the game slightly better if others had skins.

You're missing the point. Waiting for a champion to go DOWN to REGULAR price isn't a benefit or increasing affordability. Nor is a 2 year wait for that champion to actually fall below their current NORMAL release price.

You do realize that every 3 weeks 1 champion will become $1 cheaper.

And every 6 weeks 1 champion will become $1 cheaper and an additional champion will also become $1 cheaper.
