Person doesn't read I think. Okay, so they increased the IP cost, which is free. You get IP from playing the game. The increase is only for the first week so that we don't have 500 people the first week playing him.

They didn't increase RP cost, they infact decrease older champs RP(or IP can't remember) every so often now.

So why are you saying they need money when you aren't spending anymore. Plus if you're worried about a $5 difference(if there was one) then maybe you shouldn't be paying anything. haha

They normalized the RP costs over the champion tiers, and when a champion is moved down a tier, both their IP and RP cost are reduced.

Also, the RP cost is staying the same for newly released champions at 975.

Hold your horses, dude. Actually read the posts and calm down. Thresh will be back at 6300 in a week. If you're looking for them to release something under 6300, those days are long gone. Instead, they're reducing prices on older champions as they release new ones. Of course we're not pro higher prices. But the changes Riot made are totally understandable and have been announced for weeks.

And personally, I like not seeing as many fail Threshes as I would with 6300 pricing. Plus the price reductions are just awesome.


I personally like this new way. It's better to have a champion that is above normal price for a week with older champion price reductions than to have new champions released at 6300 IP with no price reductions.

I dunno how a champion costing more IP the first week gives Riot more money.

I know this thread is a few days old, but even if they put up the RP cost, they have given you a game for FREE and let you try out a new list of champions each week for FREE.
