Akali release date?

#1Guy_SacaenPosted 5/10/2010 9:53:07 AM
Might be a noob question, but... anyone know the official release date for Akali, or is it still undetermined?
Also, does anyone know how many IP it will be to unlock her?

Sometime this week, but it might be moved back to next week if they're still testing the other changes.

Releasing next patch, so I'd wager when new champs roll around this week or the week after.

As for IP, you can never tell until they release. She can either be 1350 (to have a ninja in each pricing range,) 3150, or 6300 (which meets the trend of the more recent released champs of 3150-6300-3150-6300-3150.)

I'm pretty sure there will never be another 1350 or 450 IP champ ever again.

Feasibly they could release more noob-friendly (read: intro champs) for 450. For example, they could release a real tank, not a AP stacking one.

I can't believe they don't price down some champions after some amount of time.

Silver_leaves: Kennen is one of the few "recommended" labeled champs which is for noobs and he's the most expensive hero in the game. So that doesn't appear to be so...

They probably make new champions 3150 or 6300 to prevent a huge influx of people wanting to play them.

Nah, Poppy (and I think Pantheon too?) was 1350. The issue at the moment isn't pricing, but the fact they've got all the basic hero concepts already covered, so they're adding gimmick characters. And those cost more due to more interesting mechanics.
