League of Legends developer Riot Games made a number of fans quite upset this week when it announced that it would be increasing the cost of RP, or Riot Points, next month. For those unaware, RP is the virtual currency that is used to buy skins, champions, and other items within League of Legends. And while skins in League of Legends were already quite pricey, this new increase is putting fans over the edge.
Not long after Riot announced that it would be making RP more costly, social media began to fill up with responses from a number of League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics fans. For the most part, many fans felt like the RP increase was one that didn't make sense, primarily because Riot chalked up the change to generalized "worldwide inflation." Even though inflation has been a problem all around the globe lately, a number of League players didn't understand how this could also affect digital goods.
The other qualm that many League of Legends fans had with this RP price change comes with the quality of the game. Some expressed that LoL has taken a dip when it comes to skins and other purchasable content in recent years. For this to be the case while also seeing that Riot now wants more money for said add-on content left a number of fans feeling like they might just quit playing League of Legends altogether.

the prices of rp are rising up and the amount of rp for the money is smaller
this just aint it
Doesn't Riot Make Enough Money...?
Wait why did they even need to raise rp prices in the first place actually
Like I’m pretty sure league still thrives super fucking well since it has the highest amount of players this year and last year, not to mention people still drop like 70 dollars on valorant for a bundle— Beehawke (@beehawk4) July 6, 2022
