See how your logic works when related to brain thunking?
You've never taken an econ class have you? You would not be comparing GAS and a VIDEO GAME.

Comparing a necessity.

Gas is needed to drive a car. Champions are needed to play the game. Unless you want to make the argument that you don't have to buy any champions and you could play the same champions until your get bored with the game.

Or you can pay money and get the champions at light speed, compared to the rate you earn them from simply playing.

Just because people buy something DOES NOT MEAN IT'S PRICING IS PERFECT.

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:

ITT: LoL champs are now a necessity for living comparable to gasoline. Not at all a luxury item that anyone can live without.

/facepalm

Why do I bother? We are so doomed.

Necessity for game = Necessity for living?

What?

Gas is a luxury, just as purchasing champs with real money is a "luxury". Both have alternatives. Car/Bike. Money/Farm your life.

Suddenly gas isn't overpriced because I have to use it for my vehicle.

Champions aren't over priced because people buy them rather than spend 20+ hours farming 6300 IP. Oh, you bought a new champ? Now spend 20+ hours to farm Runes to support that champ...wait a new champ is out already!?

I find it simply hilarious, how people say "buy RP noobs" when these guys are charging ridiculous amounts because they have the monopoly on League of Legends and kindof the genre in general. Many people will not want to quit League after reaching 30 and already spending about 30 bucks because playing one champion every game isnt fun, nor is losing a favorite champ when its not on rotation.

Its like this:
You live in the only town in the world that can still produce gas.\
They charge you $20 bux a gallon.
Do you want to walk, or pay that money and actually go places in a decent timeframe.
Oh, did i mention that the streets are near trafficless and that sidewalks are crowded because of the ridiculous prices?
...oh, and bikes and other traveling devices are not allowed. yes, that includes your cruddy time machine back to when bikes were aloud.

Riot TAUNTS you into buying ridiculously priced RP. And now the are more or less forcing it on us with their champions being as high priced as they are. Keep the RP cost, lower the IP cost to 3150.

Riot, give these people a bike and let them get places like it was before!
