Overall good changes, long overdue, we've needed a stable and consistent champ cost decrease system for a while. I don't know how the 7800IP system will work, i've bought day 1 champs before and have been more than happy with them (Riven, Elise) but also some i've completely regretted (Shvana, Nautilus) but with this new price regardless of how excited I am i'll always wait the extra week as 1500IP ain't worth losing for no good reason. Also since I wait that one week i'll probably wait the extra week on top of that for the free week so overall I don't think this first week price increase is really going to do anything unless you're going to delay even further the first time a champ goes on free week which honestly is a d!ck move.
The other issue I have is the rate of which 4800IP and lower champs get reduced. You treat 4800IP as the standard low price which imo opinion should be 3150IP as 4800IP is still very high. I'm just not a fan of how inconsistent the low end of this system is.
Imo every 5th champ release a 1350IP champ should go to 450IP, every 4th champ release a 3150IP champ goes to 1350IP and every 3rd champ a 4800IP champ goes to 3150IP. Or something along those lines. My main issue is just that we've wanted consistency in champion price reductions and you're finally giving us this but only for 6300IP champs, that inconsistency still exists for every other Tier.
