Seems like I'm the only one for the forums who cares about how every champion getting released Is 6k IP. For some of you who were here before they released the shop, they said that they would release champions for 1k - 3k 6k IP based on how hard they're to play.

Riot does this because its a good way to make money. Who would want to work up 6k IP for a champion and then have no runes for it? I know its marketing, but Riot you're just overdoing it.

So the fact that you can early all the content (runes, champions) without paying a single dime doesn't mean anything to do?

They aren't really overdoing anything. I'm over it.

I actually prefer the expensive champions,

It means that while I'm earning IP, I don't accidently get enough for a new hero too often which leads to me wanting to play them and doing terrible; thus allowing me to focus on characters I know, and giving me a longer sense of grattitude from collecting the IP which would otherwise be useless to me.

And if I want a hero that bad and don't have the IP/patience to wait, I can always give Riot money to support a great game.

The problem is after a while, you kinda run out of ways to make new champs that are not complex..

Look at the 450IP champs--most of them only has targeted ability. How many ways can you make a point&click skill that deal damage to people? If they keep rehashing these skills over and over to make cheap champs, then it would backfire in 2 ways:
1) You can't make money out of it
2) People will call them lazy, because all the skills are not creative.

I'd say once in a blue moon, 450IP or 1350IP champs to test out a new mechanics (just testing the water) might be OK. Anymore, and the community will start calling them lazy again.

Let's look at our newest champions, shall we?

Swain - 6300
Sona - 3150
Miss Fortune - 6300
Urgot - 3150
Galio - 6300
Vlad - 6300
Xin - 3150

I think this is it so far from Season 1? Correct me if I'm wrong.

So, we've had 7 new champions. 4 of those 7 have been 6300. 3 have been 3150.

Riot does release 3150 champs. Just not as often. But still, they want you to BUY their champ. That's why the new ones are generally expensive.

Have we been reading the same forums? I mean, what with the few hundred threads complaining about a champion's price every time a 6300 IP champ gets released. Especially the many threads on it with Miss Fortune's release.

On another note, it seems to me that if any champions deserve to be 6300, Lux definitely does. She seems like she'll be really fun.

Lux should be 12600 just considering all the changes and work they've spent on her face alone.
