The whole IP to RP ratio makes no sense. Why would I spend 260 RP on a champ that only cost 450 IP? I feel like any champion other than the 975 RP ones are a waste of money to buy via RP do to the inflated RP to IP ratio.

This is what the IP to RP ratio SHOULD look like

450 IP 72 RP ( 450/1350 = 0.333 * 210 = 69.93)
1350 IP 210 RP (1350/3150 = 0.429 * 490 = 210.21)
3150 IP 490 RP (3150/4800 = 0.656 * 740 = 485.44)
4800 IP 740 RP (4800/6300 = 0.762 * 975 = 742.95)
6300 IP 975 RP
7800 IP (first week) 975 RP

And before you know it, this game is psuedo-free to play cuz you need to line the greedy pigs pockets in order to get anywhere in the game.
More like greedy players who don't wanna shell out money for anything... If you really wanted to be fair we should do this DLC style and have all content bought, but no you can earn it like it should be. People who work for Riot need to feed families as much as you do. Why don't ppl weigh the costs.. most individuals who work even part time for 1-2 hrs can afford a bundle if they really wanted it.. You do not need to buy everything that comes out. that's not how it works, you buy what you what. If you really feel this way how would you feel about working for free on the most popular game in the world. Yeah, it would suck.

Good pricing model. Also makes RP a little more valuable at first release.

I think the problem is that EVERYthing is overpriced. Let's say you win ALL of your games (which no one does). That's about 100 IP each game, and let's guess the avg game length is 30 mins. That's 30 hours of gameplay! To unlock one champion....

Though I would love to get some IP back, I dont like the idea of reducing the Ip prices so much. Like the oldest 6300 champ down to 4800 is ok, but leave it like that, don't continue to reduce it on the 3rd champ realease. Make people take its time to get the IP for higher tier champs man!

I like this, gives people to buy a champ that they wanted sooner
