Just wait, don't buy anything in the store now. The store is just still too 'beta' to be used.

Skin prices are still in limbo (4$ for a green twitch, say what?)

Rune balancing is being solved via ip cost (why use a mark of damage instead of mark of crit, it costs 1/4 as much ip that's why.)

Boosts are ridiculously overpriced and not yet available in "boosts for X games."

I can't see how all of these things can go on without being adjusted, and that is why I'm saving my points for an undetermined amount of time.

Agreed. Not to mention that champion prices for "legendary" champions are still ridiculous.

I agree, the boosts are overpriced for sure.

Skin prices seem to be targeting people who main 1 champion, and may get 1 skin sale per person. Definitely not priced for collectors.

Rune prices seem kinda ok, still don't think many people are gonna waste IP on Tier 2, and Tier 1 is only getting sales because of level cap.

I don't understand how anyone can think 6300 IP for a single hero could be a good idea and work well.

Specially if that person has a background in programming/gaming.

Notes that none of the 6300 IP heroes were included in the collector's pack

Time to take a break from LoL until they fix the prices.

Hopefully it's not more than a week for them to realize how bad the pricing is.

I just now saw the champion pricing (I had a bundle so I didn't look till now.)

How is it determined that Yi is worth 450 ip and Blitz is 6300? That doesn't even make sense. Is it based off of popularity? Why then is Heimer more expensive than Twisted Fate? Why is Corki 6300, but ashe is 450? I can't fathom the rational on this.

It seems skill shot heroes are considered "Legendary" while ez mode free win heroes are basically free.

Paying top dollar to use a hero that is skill shot dependent is a great direction to go when they want this game to show more individual skill instead of point click I win.
