For one, I have nothing against a business making money..and aiming for profits. That is the company's ventured interest. What is annoying however, that once you buy RP to pick up a champion or skin, you will be left with an uneven amount of RP (which translates to - my hard earned money) sitting there right in front of my eyes as a fixed deposit, cannot withdraw, cannot spend, does not earn interest from an user's point of view. And from RIOT's point of view, money in their banks for which they don't have to provide any goods or service for.
Its like I open a car dealership and make a rule, you can only purchase cars from my shop when you buy Shadow Points. The cars cost 8750 Shadow Points. The least amount of Shadow Points you can buy is 10,000, and I do not sell anything in my shop which costs less than 8750 Shadow Points.
I must agree, that it is a flawed consumer logic for a successful business plan.
