Furthermore, buying RP does not make one stupid. Would you call a person who buys a cup of coffee before work every morning an idiot? How about someone who buys a new car every four or five years? Someone who buys a bigger house when their family grows? No, you'd call them a typical consumer. They are stimulating a business and encouraging growth. Purchasing RP is no different. These are things we buy for personal pleasure and out of gratitude to the developers and artists... individuals that you have just insulted for creating things you desire, but either can't afford or simply feel entitled to have for free.
Just wait a week. Thresh will be waiting for you.

It's a money scam, it has always been, and they're only getting "better at it"
You might as well compare it to, if P2P games every month increased the cost of the subscribtion. And if the buyers are "smart" enough to fall for it, hell why not make it permantly?
Btw.. I don't think Riot is in need of White Knights or head..., I think they've plenty of those already.
Whoa there fella.
Insulting me is just silly, and will get you nowhere.

I thought he message was pretty clear, and apparently it was to others...I intentionally listed vanity or "fun" based items to draw a comparison to purchasing RP. These things aren't necessary, they're just things we want
. Please explain to me how dropping $5.00 at starbucks every morning is a sound investment. I go almost every day, but I don't do it as an investment, I do it because I like to drink coffee. Similarly, a lot of people like to diversify their champion collection. As long as there is a desire for these things the prices will either remain stagnant or inflate. Your shock, dismay, or annoyance at this change is actually quite surprising, as this change will effectively deflate the prices of older champions. They're stealing our money by lowering prices, oh my! Also if you can't wait a single week, you may want to repeat the phrase "Patience is a virtue" until you actually start to believe it. Also, a scam
is basically a fraudulent business plan. Please point out in exactly what way Riot has committed fraud. They haven't, and levying these kinds of accusations is laughable.
