This is epic. I have every champion already, but this will help my friends and family who play league, while also allowing me slightly more chances to play new champions for the first week!

NICE.

so basically all veteran players are gonna get from this announcement... "hey its gonna take us longer to give u champs and they're gonna cost more... and hey remember all that **** you invested in... we're gonna make it easier for other people to get now. have a nice day"

riot fail.
Yeah they said they are making champs less often so that we have more time to save up, but its just an excuse to make champs less often. At least thats how i took it.

in the store i just noticed that elise is now older than xerath when you order the champions by release date so you should probably fix that.

I know what you said, but let's be completely blunt here- you've lied to our faces before, especially where money is concerned.

That said, I approve of the slower champion release schedule. I can already only afford about every second champion anyway, if you'd stuck with the biweekly schedule I'd NEVER be able to afford older champions I don't have like Shen, Vladimir, Corki or Lee Sin, not to mention more runes and rune pages.
^you don't need every champion on release... pick and choose what you like... all of the champions have a unique flair. Buying based on how new they are is absurd. If a new champion comes out that you adore you will be all the more happy when you are part of the few people that have it and can actually use it without queue dodging insta locks.

If you are so disgusted you need to really learn about how the business world works.... ECON 101 prices increase with demand
I understand all of this and actually finished ECON 101 with an A+, which I didn't even know was possible in college until that point. I also don't have a problem with any of these things. I have a problem when they're done behind a facade.

I think the price for the new champ coming out is just fine, You have a lot of time to save up to get those champ with IP.
