This is honestly just ****ing stupid. I've spent SO much money on this game as it is, and just to get a freaking icon (which I initially wanted, now I don't), I'd need to spend basically $100 dollars? Kiss my ass.

I've supported you guys a TON over the 3 years but it's decisions like this that just blatantly confuses and insults me as a customer. You say you're trying to do things FOR us, yet you do dumb sales ideas like this and the Mecha Kha'Zix skin. Just blatantly stupid.

Riot, can you give rewards for overall RP purchases on LoL accounts please?

This initiative just accentuates how greedy Riot is becoming as a company.
i did the same.

Instead of letting us buy an icon for 260 RP.
We have to buy $80 worth of RP to get an icon that you spent 5 minutes on a sketchpad.
Nice. The worst part is, people will still do it just for the icon. Good job Riot. With all these scams, I can't wait to see what you have for Christmas!

So free summoner icons for people buying RP in a certain date range and Riot gets a downvoted thread and a wheelbarrow full of complaints? Geeze GD. The icons aren't going to make anyone play better and are a themed, freebie for people buying RP for a while (they also appear to have considered some of the "But I just bought 5k RP yesterday," complaints and backdated it to the beginning of October). Thank you Riot.

Nice idea Riot, but unfortunately you went about it in the wrong way as evidenced by the downvotes. Allow me to explain.

Rather than giving players an option of which icon(s) they want with their IP you arbitrarily stuck them into "tiers", even in spite of the fact that a user can only actually use one icon (at a time at least). This means that a person who wants icon#1 only has to spend $5 and someone who wants icon#5 has to spend $70. This system is also quite punishing for people who supported Riot in the past when they didn't have this incentive.

You can fix this in a few different ways:

1: setting a price point at which players get a icon and they get to choose an extra icon for each multiple of that RP

2: allowing them to choose which icon they get at each tier

3: drastically lowering the price point of tiers 3-5 (not a true fix, but if you can't progam in the choices in a reasonable timeframe then you can at least reduce player backlash this way; if tiers were at say, 500 | 1,000 | 1500 | 2,000 | 3,000 RP ($5-$25) I think we'd have much fewer upset players.)

Please fix this and at the very least I hope you have learned from your mistake.
