GG reading comprehension. There's a ton of people in this thread complaining about the RP purchase that they just made 1-2 weeks ago, or yesterday even. Go back and read the original statement: "...between October 1 and November 13."

As for the folks complaining about the large amount of RP they purchased during the free RP promotion... you already got a bonus! Riot is now trying a different marketing tactic with a different incentive. Are you seriously going back and saying "Hey wait! That incentive that I previously got wasn't good enough! Give me both!".

I like that they are doing this, cause it means we might be getting closer to lifetime purchase tiers which I would really like to happen.

PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT COST:

THIS IS A REWARD SYSTEM FOR BUYING RP!!!!
IF YOU BUY RP JUST FOR THE ICONS, THEN YES IT WILL BE EXPENSIVE!
If you haven't noticed, they haven't put price tags on the actual Icons themselves because they AREN'T for sale. THey're rewards for buying RP. In other words, if you have to feel generous in supporting Riot with their fiscal needs within the next month, you get rewarded with special icons.

YOU ARE NOT BUYING ICONS! YOU'RE BUYING RP!

Baffling how Riot continues to alienate its loyal customers through these senseless marketing strategies. Greedy, greedy, greedy.

$70 for summoner icon. Something people can see at the end of game (but won't be paying attention) or come to look at your profile for some reason.

Rush for your wallets people :P

This is starting to leave a bad taste in my mouth. Seems like we're starting to get less and less time to prepare for this little events that are suppose to add "new content."

This is especially bad considering it started 2 weeks ago and I do not remember any notice.

Looks like I'm not buying any RP just out of spite.

I won't be participating. This feels incredibly condescending that Riot would think its playerbase (which I would be included in) would feel incentivised by this poor offering.

More over, the amount of RP required is simply absurd.

How they think they can justify the amounts being asked for is.. beyond me.


Riot sees it as a "bonus", or they want us to think that they are simply offering it as a bonus. In reality, they want to increase RP sales, which mean, sales that wouldn't have taken place otherwise. So, again, the prices are absurd.

Can said RP be bought in parts? As in I buy 1000 here and then another 1000 do they add together towards the 10k RP for the wraith? This may have already been asked and i may of missed it and it may already be answered in the original post and I may just be misunderstanding something but I would just like to make sure.
