Why are some of you complaining. If the extra IP cost is too much then buy RP or wait a week. They are gonna be making champions cheaper every champ release. That's saving us ALOT of IP in the long run. Look at the big pictures. This is very fair! Thanks riot!

Sounds good except this:

Quote:
we’re targeting 14-17 new champions in 2013 -- around one every 3-4 weeks.
I think the current schedule of around 20 champions a year is ideal. But it's not that big of a difference, hopefully this will give you time to rework some older champions and add new maps, etc.

Of those, how many do you know how to play? xD

Hi, I just saw the post about lowering Ezrael's price. I brought this guy for 6.3k around 7 hours BEFORE that posting was made. Like seriously, right before the posting. I did not get any refund, if I brought him around 3 hours later, I could have gotten him for 4.8k IP. I know that many players in the community wanted this change, but I did not get ANY refund that you guys were talking about and I feel that this makes it extremely unfair. I would like a refund in that 1.5k in IP please. I acknowledge your decisions, but I did not get any sort of refund from this and I can't refund Ezrael in the store. Thank you.

Please respond Riot...;3;

Because I just spent 6.3k on Ezrael...and DID NOT get any sort of refund that you guys were talking about for the players who brought Ezrael from 2 weeks prior to today.

I like it. You can either choose to get the new toy early at the expensive cost, or you can wait a week to get it at the normal price. For some people who have all the champs or almost all that 7800 might be worth it, for others, it won't. Plus the fact that the price reductions now have a predictable formula is amazing. No longer is it just a random, oh these champs are going down in price. Now you can plan on getting some champs later when they're cheaper. Plus over time all the champions will depreciate toward the lower tiers which means new players won't need to break the ip bank to get champions when they need runes.

So wait, what if I gifted a champion (Nocturne) to a friend? Would I still get some RP back from the price reduction?

2 weeks prior? da ****. why cant you refund everyone who has already purchased these champions. It's kinda bull**** how we spent all our time trying to get these champs and the people who just bought them get refunds.
