Summoners, our next champion is going to be very exciting and fun to play, but we want to ensure we have a mix of IP prices and so we have decided that she will be released at 3150 IP.
So let me get this right? The potency and functionality of the champion is based off of how much time/money we're willing to pitch you? This sounds like a terrible model for balance.
"champion x cost 6300 because he's op, champion y costs 1200 so he should only be allowed to come close to beating champion x. That way people who bought champion x feel like their points were well spent!"
Here's an idea. Make all champs cost 3150 and stop being greedy.
