I'm loving you guys so much right now my wife is jealous! Seriously this company seems to be getting better every season. First the new items for the season, then the great thread that Morello participated in with the community and now this! Riot showing their Christmas spirit so much. I hope you guys know we appreciate your hard work and dedication so much.

I especially love the 7800 ip for new champ increase. People in randoms will have a better chance to play test them and it encourages people to buy with RP which mean less children playing them and a better chance to see what they can do. And the more money Riot makes the more toys us loyal players get. Thanks so much guys.

I love everything about this. So awesome

As for the increased first week price, it works for me, It's a small increase and the longer cycle give people more time to get the IP needed. Besides, what's a week anyway? It makes playing the champ for the first week feel more special and makes it even more worth my while when I buy the bundle on day one

I don't like the new 7800 price, BUT, considering all the other positive changes, it's a good thing. Hopefully it will also reduce the effect of champ testing on the first week of release.

Guys why are you even complaining about the launch price. This is a really good way to filter the number of people playing the new champion. Hippalus you do an excellent job getting the best deals possible for customers. I know you get flamed a lot by people who don't like any change but this decision is solid and well thought out. I tip my hat to you sir and wish you a happy holiday season!

I kinda hate this idea. As much as I love the idea towards cheaper champs but I like the fact that it's a challenge.to save up to get champs. I don't like the idea that champs are getting so cheap, it's easy to get them. I really like the idea for the RP to match up with the IP but I seriously don't like how champs are getting cheap to quickly.

Wow Riot, I'm very impressed! Honestly. You listen to your player base on things such as price concerning a game that you set the supply and demand. You held all the power, but you've come up with a fair and just system of distribution. Kudos to you.

The increase in IP for new champs is for the first week only to encourage sales of RP. Don't blame Riot for this REMEMBER the need to make money in order to stay afloat in this business.
