The Cost of Every Champion

Buying all champions costs 580-670 USD based on what packages of riot points you buy. I don't think I need to explain how non-cheap this is.

Now, this is for all the fools that say "you can get all the champs just by playing, no money needed." Okay, sure. You can, but here's how long it will take (hours played).

First, let's make some gross assumptions to see how fast a LoL god could get all the champs.
1- The LoL god wins EVERY game.
2- To minimize hours played, let the LoL god play one game every 22 hours to get that bonus 150 every time.
3- To further minimize hours played, the LoL god makes the enemy team surrender @ 20 every game.

This means the LoL god gets 226/20 IP/min (minutes of game play).
As of today all champions cost 411900 Influence Points.
This means the LoL god gets all the champions in 36451 minutes of game play or 608 hours. The absolutely, preposterously impossible minimum game time needed to get all the champs is 608 hours. nearly 6 hours per champ.

Below is a list of more realistic examples:
average win rate -> W
average game duration (minutes) -> d
average games played per 22 hours -> r

Note that these examples are approximated averages.

W=0.5
d=25
r=3
hours needed= 1601

W= 0.6
d= 25
r= 2
hours needed= 1331

W=0.6
d=25
r=20
hours needed= 2337

W=0.45
d=30
r=5
hours needed= 2064

W=0.1
d=25
r=40
hours needed= 2996

here is the formula (http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%28%28W%29%2818%2B2.312d%29%2B%281-W%29%2816%2B1.405d%29%29*%2860t%2Fd%29%2B150*%281-%281-W%29%5Er%29*%28%2860t%29%2F%28r*d%29%29%3D411900+for+W%3D%28%29+and+d%3D%28%29+and+r%3D%28%29) I used
where it says " for W=() and d=() and r=()"
fill in the parenthesis, you will need to scroll to the right.

if r<1 then set r to 1.
if d<25 then the first two d's in the equation should be manually set to 25
if d>55 then the first two d's in the equation should be manually set to 55

Why do you need all the champions? But, still... I think the prices are really high. It takes me like 2 weeks to get a 6300.

This is the main reason I prefer DotA 2 over LoL. It is not a grind, you can play as little or as much as you want and NOTHING CHANGES. You don't have to say "damn I would love to play role X, but I don't have _____" because you have all of them always.

Maybe that is just me.

why do you need all the champs? also you get 10 free champs every week there is almost always at least one champ that is free for every role.

i have almost all champs. have been playing 6 months and have spent \$100 i believe. just dont pay full price and dont buy skins. buy on sale and only buy 6300's with RP. ''

its not that bad if you have self control and wait.

The only champ I don't have right now is Zed, but I'm already at 5.6k IP. I guess it's just uch easier for the older players like myself. After you get all of the champs you can pretty much just grab that 6.3k IP over the course of the weeks they give you. Plus we've been given a lot of free boosts recently. I remember only having enough for Lulu because of free 10 wins. Likewise with Elise.

A month of gameplay. That means 608 in-game hours assuming you win every single game.
