no offense to money penny but you need to come up with a new marketing strategy.

these forum posts about lower priced champions next patch or lowering prices in general are ringing hollow to the ears of your most prolific buyers.

you made a forum post a few months ago in particular heralding more reasonably priced skins and champions and even gave us a skin token for cheap in the form of french maid nidalee. since then however nothing of the sort has occurred. every new skin is 975 and dont even get me started on the champion costs.

the disconnect between what riot says and what they're actually doing is very disconcerting and is not increasing my likelihood to purchase anything.

at the end of the day if you want people to be happier with riot and their purchases i suggest you minimize this sort of marketing PR forum post and focus on actual providing value to riot points purchasers in the form of cheaper skins (what about a 720 price point? 640? 375?) and champions (how about choose your champion bundles.. pick any 3 champs for 1200 riot points or some variation) and i've said this more and more...

REWARD YOUR POWER BUYERS. Do things to make us feel appreciated such as giving us RP discounts, forum titles, an in-game icon, special skin unlocks etc and I guarantee you the flow of money will be continuous and predictable.

Enough marketing BS. TALK IS CHEAP. More actions to show buyers you appreciate them.

We hope you enjoy Renekton and we look forward to bringing you a lower IP priced champion in the next patch.

Wait a minute... wait just a minute. Isn't this crossing the line of breaking your own NDA? Not only have we been told that we're getting another new champion (not that we really NEED to be told at this point, but that's another discussion), but we've also been told WHEN.

They told us WHEN something was going to happen! =O

Oh... wait... "next patch" could be months away, couldn't it?

Variety? you mean a constant mix of 3150's and 6300's?

the sad truth is that if in some fit of madness on Riot's part the next hero is released at 1350 the forums will probably completely forget about the 6,300 trend before that, and if the heroes after the 1350 were consistently 6,300 or 4,800 most the responses would be "they just gave us a 1350 hero stop being such whiny brats"

First time riot has ever talked about prices

the cynicism in me is guessing the next champion will be 6299 IP
