Why dont we have all champs and skins unlocked. I mean, since Riot gives RP/IP every sunday (which in turns giving us opportunities to own all champs, in just a matter of time). Sooner or later we will hv the money to buy all isn't it?

Just asking....


Riot knows that your parents didn't teach you any frugality. This is Riot's attempt to try and make people less stupid.

Hi, could you guys also adjust the prices of runes on PBE, or give a much bigger initial IP amount?

10K IP isn't really enough to fill even a single page of runes that would be shared by all roles. 9 armor yellows, 9 magic resist blues, 3 movement speed quints already = 10K, I haven't even bought any marks yet because I can't afford them.

I really don't want to grind PBE for weeks to get IP-recharged or play enough games on it just to gain equal footing.

If the purpose of PBE is really to allow users to try new things, test and play around with different champions/build/runes, the cost restrictions on runes definitely need to be adjusted.

Thanks

The purpose of the PBE is to test and report bugs experienced in-game so that they don't get into the Live version of the game.
Although I agree that the runes should have lower prices because hybrid protection/penetration runes cost as much as almost 2 champions!

This^ Pretty please. I've had a PBE account for a few months now (my NA server account having had for about 2 years) and runes even on regular league take FOREVER to get. You guys reduce IP prices on champs all the time because it takes a long time just to catch up in champs and not all of us have the hours and hours and hours each day to grind for this. Though we have been members of the community a long time and I have yet to own all champs on NA and all runes and have paid money (though not these crazy amounts i hear about o.o jeez kids) and still cant catch up without spending a literal fortune.

TL;DR Please lower rune costs across all platforms just so we can catch up and modify our runes at an easier cost without literal days and days of grinding for ONE page.

They want the store to be tested regularly as well.

That'd be kind of nice. Then we could test more rune combonations out.
