Logical fallacy there- just because time can convert into money and money to time doesn't make them the same thing.

If someone has tons of extra IP to burn, what would they spend their winnings on that they didn't already have?

Why would Riot do this?

First, it's a form of gambling which shouldn't be tolerated in games. Gambling is gambling, free currency or not.

Second, you're basically giving away full account unlocks to whoever wins (every champion for the life of the game, all the runes and all rune pages). In what scenario would this benefit Riot? The purpose of their entire system is to earn what you have, not getting freebies. Riot doesn't benefit from a feature like this in any way.

These questions have already been answered. If you aren't going to give the effort to read 5 pages of a thread, I'm not giving the effort to reanswer your obvious questions.

Pay 100 IP for a ticket. "Draws" every day. The jackpot could be hundreds of thousands of IP. I think this would be fun.


Brilliant, I don't understand how you don't have 5000 upvotes.
