Having certain champions is an advantage/disadvantage that directly affects gameplay. To alleviate the costs of buying champions with Influence Points (which if you only buy champions with IP, they're free and they only cost time and effort), you can buy them with Riot Points.
No one's forcing you to buy Riot Points. Literally the only thing in this game that you can only buy with Riot Points (real money) are skins, which are purely aesthetic and have no direct influence on gameplay.
You think you're funny, but you're not.
