I'd rather have all champions have equal tiers for both. That would avoid a lot of confusion, but I guess it's too late for that now, since they'll be a lot of refund requests... And there's no RP equivalent to the 6300 IP champions.

As such, I think the table should contain both tiers, or you should make a separate table for both.

PS: I'll also show my disapproval of the fact, that you can't easily convert RP points into real money, thanks to the ratio. It's a really unfair marketing tactic :/

EDIT:
Also, I'd like to see the following champions next week: Dr. Mundo, Kassadin, Nidalee, Sion, Udyr.
I'm doing research, and need access to then ^^;

It would be so much easier for people if you just made 1000RP = to $10 and 2500RP = $25 disregarding the bonuses that you give with it, but i had to pull out a calculator to figure out the costs of each hero to see if it was worth buying wit RP or earning it with IP
troublesome because they werent easy numbers
Awww Poor you, you had to use a calculator ! xD Besides you shouldn't be picking your champs according to their prices but according to your taste. I don't know how much IP i wasted on champs that I've actually used no more than twice -.-

And nah, i think Riot are doing a pretty good job on their Free Champion rotation selections. Most characters that people don't pick usually don't appear often in the free weeks. Like Karthus, he may be present in like 60% of the games now, but it's pretty normal considering the fact that Karthus has only appeared in the Free selection a few times. If it wasn't for that, no one would be picking Karthus 24/7 and so in other words it's about time they did it cuz now everyones going crazy on a champ thats worth 6300 IP and that you might wanna test before buying ! xD And would've only have gotten worse if they waited...

(PS last weeks Shaco invasion was a p*ss *ff)

The problem with making 1000RP = $10 is you have to realize the "dollar" isn't the only currency that is purchasing RP.

Unfair marketing tactic?
lol
Bonus riot points the more money you spend, and you want to complain about that?
I'm guessing you've never bought riot points. PURCHASE some riot points. Support Riot.

Well, it's just, whenever I see a Nasus I ask him specifically if he builds DPS or Tank. And if he answers DPS, I queue dodge. Honestly the only situation I'll ever queue dodge. And you're perpetuating it by telling people Nasus is DPS

I think we can all agree if you put Annie as Melee DPS or Mundo as a Mage you'd be quick to correct your error.
