What if they had a pay-to-play account type?

This account you pay $15 a month, and you have every champion unlocked. Skins are 50% off all the time + the 50% off sales making them 75% off on sales.

You have 4 rune pages to start off with.

You gain 2x IP per game.

Would people do it?

I would do it for 1 month, grind the hell out of the game, use my crap-ton of IP to buy every champion I want, then cancel it. Riot would lose a ton of money. A 30-day IP boost costs more than $20 too, so they would be shooting themselves in the foot since nobody would have a reason to buy them anymore.

Nah, its a monthly basis.

I think people would be too attached to their accounts after investing so much time in it (b/c who cares about pre-30 anyway?), and so they would keep it for another month or two.

Then they would be like, damn this is expensive, and start a free account, paying for even more RP just to catch up to the other account.

People buy IP boosts?

I have 12k IP just sitting there and I own every champion...

15 dollars a month till you get to lvl 100

lvl 30 is still the cap for unlocking things other than free mode

a lot of people are sheep so they won't believe a champion is strong until a pro says so

Its just an option. Free to play would still be the same.
