Riot is going to ignore this thread. It may have gotten almost 2,000 posts and almost 2100 upvotes in under a week, but they will pretend like it's not there.

I agree with the "promises need to be kept" mentality of this thread, but there are a few things I don't quite agree with. Being able to "IP farm" for every new champ that comes out kills a large profit margin for a game that lacks an initial payment/monthly subscription. I do agree however that as time progresses and more champions are released, the older champs from launch etc... should be lowered to some extent, if not in IP price at least in RP price. Paying the same 975 for a champion that came out with the game as the new champions that come out today seems like it could use some adjustment, but I again that is merely an opinion without profit margins sitting in front of me haha...

Point is new things can't be lower priced or they wont make any money.

Old things can go down in price in order to sell them.

I'm fine with the pricing. 6300 for some, 4800 for others. Is it annoying to not own every champion in the game? Partially. But the F2P economy is, by nature, driven by cost vs convenience.

If it were incredibly convenient to purchase and own everything you wanted, there would be less incentive to spend money.

Still waiting for a red response(sorry, RiotChris, but that Leblanc nonsense does not count).

We also know there are complaints about Champion pricing in general and we have lowered prices on older Champions, and Rumble was not a 6,300 IP Champion.

We are currently working on getting access to the store backend to change the price to 3,150, but there is a temporary networking issue from the office at the moment.

We'll be updating this thread with the latest:

4800 =/= 3150. It used to be a combination of 3150s and 6300s, now it's 6300s and 4800s. Don't kid yourself.
