Permanent Champion Price Reduction

We are reducing champion prices on a fixed schedule (based primarily on champion release dates). This plan involves ongoing reductions of BE and RP prices of older champions, as well as increasing the time you have to earn BE between champion releases.

Please note that we will not be granting pro-active refunds to players that purchase these champions prior to their reductions.

Champion Release Schedule

You may have already noticed the rate at which we’ve been releasing champions has slowed. This gives you more time to accumulate BE between champion releases, and it enables our design team to spend more time developing and polishing each new champion.


Champion First Week BE Price

We will also be slightly increasing the first-week BE price of new champions to partially offset lower overall prices. All brand new champions will cost 7800 BE/975 RP for the first week only, and will be reduced to 6300 BE thereafter.


RP and BE Price Tiers

We’ve also updated the RP cost of champions so that that they’re more strongly correlated with the BE price. RP costs now match BE cost accordingly:

  • 450 BE = 260 RP
  • 1350 BE = 585 RP
  • 3150 BE = 790 RP
  • 4800 BE = 880 RP
  • 6300 BE= 975 RP
  • 7800 BE (first week of champion release) = 975 RP


Price Reduction Schedule

Every time a new champion is released, the oldest 6300 BE/975 RP champion will be reduced to 4800 BE/880 RP.

Also, with every third champion release, an additional champion currently priced at 4800 BE or lower will be reduced to the next lowest tier, based on age and ease of play.

Because these price reductions are pre-announced, we will not be granting pro-active refunds to players that purchase these champions prior to their reductions.
