Is this stuff going to be a one time thing (or nearly one time) like the Harrowing icons?
I'm all for new stuff, but the collectionist in me screams that you're just taking advantage of us... =(
EDIT: What if we already own every Champion? How can a friend gift us a Champion to get the icon? Similar question about gifting RP and skins -- what if we own a ton of RP and every skin we want? Seems like this is separating the super loyal and dedicated players from the rest. =/
*sigh* Guess they went ahead with it anyway. Really, really, really hope this is the last time spending money is involved in getting Summoner Icons (outside of the one for "spending a lot over the course of your account" that you mentioned). Seriously... stahp!
