And you could gift a bunch from your smurf to your main, and they don't want to support smurfing

If pro is the opposite of con, what is the opposite of progress?

riot should make IP champ gifting possible if you have everything unlocked including runes.

As others have said, people would start to abuse it in order to make money.

Oh you want to buy some champs with RP? Well how about you send me real money, and I gift you champs with IP for a fraction of the cost?

People who have all the champs and runes they want could basically turn league into a money making game, resulting in a lot of lost funds for riot and a lot our out of game real money transactions behind the scenes.

probably because someone could just gift all the champions to a smurf account or something.

why is that a rule? if i want to give a friend (or an alt...) a champion, why do i have to spend real money to do it lol


Everyone made very valid points about money-making but this is what came to mind first. Why would Riot support further smurfing?

It doesn't make Riot any money.


Well said bro.

Tbh I don't see why not, if someone already has every champion or pretty darn close to it.
I mean what else are people going to spend their IP on when they already have them all and already bought every rune they need/use?

Common sense seems more uncommon.
