Again, the point of this isn't that the 450s are necessarily over represented, it's that it's an easy solution for Riot that doesn't have to cost them much money and solves many of the problems we are pointing out.


While true, it's a point that keeps getting brought up time and time again. That said, I don't think it's fair to speculate how much money Riot would lose (or not lose) with making 450 champions free, as we don't have access to their financial data. It is, however, an inarguable fact that Riot would lose money period.

ofc, but these are the champs that are cheapest, and therefore, as logic claims, are the ones the generate the least revenue.

Which, on the other hand, could be offset by popularity. Soraka is an insanely popular champion, for example. In any case, they still generate revenue, and as such, that would be lost if they were to make them free. Additionally, they'd probably have to make some champions go down in price to fill in that gap, and then where would we be this time next year?

It'd be nice if we knew how much of the money was from skins vs the original 40 vs the newer champions vs the NEWEST champion.

Oh and dorryza the whole "without my catchphrase" thing was just me not doing a bump with "once more with feeling" since I do that alot*

*you'd have to be watching over 20 pages to notice it though
