Why do they Riot Point champions prices fluctuate so much when compared to IP Prices?

Why can't their be a standard format?

For ex discrepancies with 3150IP heroes costing 975RP when also 6300IP heroes cost the same or 1350IP heroes costing 585RP when also 3150IP heroes cost the same.

Please price RP relative to IP costs.

This keeps me from buying champs like Shen, Gargas, and Mord but also effect a large number of champions as well.

They're as consistent as IP pricing is

  • Heroic Champions: 260 RP

Q: Will the amount of IP or RP needed to unlock a Champion ever change?
Yes. We will have occasional sales where we discount select Champions or offer them in a bundle. We also may move Champion pricing up or down, especially where the pricing levels are not aligned between RP and IP (those are temporary deals).

They should build a new price between 585RP and 975RP for 3150IP champs then. It just difficult to pay for something you can get for free that's half the usual IP cost.

If they weren't ok with you paying by IP, they wouldn't let you.

I'm just saying it deters people from spending RP on 3150IP champs. Well, I guess I'll continue to save up IP over giving Riot money then.

I usually end up getting the skin bundle, so I have lots of IP to spend on runes. Some people are probably waiting on the next 20 champ bundle.

Anyway you prefer is fine.

I usually grab the skin bundles as well but I dropped LoL for a bit in favor of university finals.
