    Not bad. Lets say a bot match is 6 minutes, it takes about 5 days to get the 1200 done, maybe 7.5 with downtimes. So you can nolife it in a month playing 6hrs a day. Not bad.

    Good point. Assuming you only play an hour or less then of course it's more like 30 to 45 days... Toss in those odd bot matches where you have teammates drop and it takes longer to win (or hell those ones where your teammates are all bots that sit in spawn and you 1v5 and lose) and I'd say more like 50. Still not that bad. Yeah, I think it's a little ehhh because obviously the point is to get more money... But again, I do agree that it's all cosmetic. And the pack that's less expensive than Founder's gives you a lot of points to work with starting off.

    The minute they toss something related to gameplay in there, though. That's when I'll go off.

    I don't like this thing either, but it seems here to stay. I even bought this many crystals just last patch.



    Althought the 1200 wins for a Maeve skin is a bit off.

    50 Points per correct guess.

    Complete your weekly quests for even more VIP Points.
    100 Points per weekly quest completed.
    You can gain 100 from the weekly quest. SO NOW YOU ONLY NEED 1000 WINS IN A ROW!

    To Hi-Rez's credit, at least they gave us an option to convert crystals to VIP. Locking the Zhin conquerer crap behind the $15 thing is a bit upsetting, though.

    It still is only cosmetics though. It's not like with Essence where it can give you an ingame advantage. If you like the skins, buy them, if you don't, then don't bother. I don't have a problem with it since cosmetics don't provide any advantage, besides dazzling your opponents.


    Look at it this way. They could've added a new currency to buy champions or cards, instead they added currency that is not necessary at all. Any change that gives Hi-Rez more money without turning it into P2W is fine by me.

    You can get 10k for only 70 crystals that is pretty good compared to their usual pricing. Nobody is going to grind 60k, not even 30, when you are getting 38 for a game. (I know thats not what i said before, but who is going to actually grind in bot games?)

    Unless this vip thing will last for a long time, you will have to pay.

    I see what you mean. I just wanted to point out that even without paying it's still possible to get these non-essential items. I'm not a huge fan of a fourth currency, but it isn't game breaking to me is all *shrug*

    Unfortunately, you can't get the 10k for 70 deal without being an active VIP member.. So you gotta atleast put in 200 crystals, THEN you can buy additional 10k points for 70 crystals while that boost lasts.
