Glad to see y'all finally doing something about pricing. The first week price is blah imo, but I can see why you'd want to encourage people shell out cash for new releases. Just means I'll have to wait a week for any champion I want.

It's awesome still because RP price for the first week remains the same! so if you invest in the game you get to try the new champion! yet if you don't want to invest you can just farm IP the old way! I love this

3150 ip champs should cost 488 rp
1350 ip champs should cost 209 rp
450 ip champs should cost 70 rp

Who else agrees?
The point is to give you more IP value for money going UP, not a flat percentage of the top tier. That's just a really bad idea...

So which character's getting reduced once Vi comes out?
Lol? Vi is already out, pretty sure this announcement was waiting to pop up past Vi release so we would have to wait more till the whole processus starts.

+1 Hippalus, but I must agree the temporary price increase is unwarranted. Now, this is coming from someone who typically just buys the new Champs bundle.

Now to give you some insight. It's not the fact that you're making the increase. This just seems like one of those "We'll just make a soft increase now, see how it goes, then later we'll make a harder increase and it won't hurt them as hard."

It's sort of like a foreshadowing of sorts, we're afraid this is just a test for a more serious increase later down the line. You guys tend to test the waters with these types of things.

Anywho, like I said you all have you hooks in me and I just buy new champs right out of the gate, but I'll gladly raise the issue for those that can't.

No, the bad idea is putting an RP price on 450 IP champion, thats a steal, you dont have to play much to get them, 260RP is still too much...

I believe this makes Yorick the next 6300 champ to become 4800, followed by Leona.

Who couldn't agree more?
