Permanent Champion Price Reduction Follow

We are reducing champion prices on a fixed schedule (based primarily on champion release dates). This plan involves ongoing reductions of IP and RP prices of older champions, as well as increasing the time you have to earn IP 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 IP between champion releases, and it enables our design team to spend more time developing and polishing each new champion.


Champion First Week IP Price

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


RP and IP Price Tiers

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

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


Price Reduction Schedule

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

Also, with every third champion release, an additional champion currently priced at 4800 IP 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.
