Next patch will give us shorter games + low IP due to new system?

A 30 minute game isn't just 30 minutes. There's queue time, champ select, loading, gloating at the end game screen, drink/washroom/snack breaks between matches, etc.

Not gonna quote your whole post. That would be dumb.

Yes, I do agree with everyone that 2 short games should equal 1 long game. That part just makes sense. However, there should be no reason that the average IP gain from the new system should be lower than the average IP gain from the old one WHICH IT WILL BE if they don't adjust the IP rates along with this whole deal of trying to shorten games.

From what you've been replying with, you just avoid my point entirely.

On a scale of 1-10 of how surprised I am with this situation, I'd give this a negative 5.

That's kind of my point, though - the average gain most likely isn't down that much at all.

If it is, they can adjust the numbers so that things, for the average player, are back to about where they feel they should be (closer to the original IP gain/hour).

The problem comes in people thinking that their experience is always the average, when subjective analysis on things like this is not only faulty at best, but fail to take into the account that an average is taken from all games played, period. End of sentence.

For that matter, end of post.
