I don't think a small, temporary, ip boost would be bad after so many honor points.
(just throwing it out there)
Because, who cares if someone abuses to gain a little bit more ip? It doesn't affect anything as far as I can tell? They can buy more runes? I don't know, but I can buy like 6 new champions and don't really care to. Not sure what abusing something like a small ip boost that would really harm anyone.
Sounds like it is can be hard to abuse and easy to catch, from what I read.
Anyway, i actually thumbs up'd the guy above me, so it is whatever, this just came to mind.
