At a time like this, where everything is going up, it makes sense that Riot is feeling the crunch too. Because of this, the company are increasing the prices of their coveted RP.

They did this to
"account for worldwide inflation, currency fluctuations, maintaining fair prices between and within regions, consistency across our products, and other associated cost increases"
The price increases will hit most regions of their games due to "economic shifts on a global scale, hence the worldwide impact.".
Riot is well aware that summoners may not be happy with this change, so they have offered a deal. Every region will receive a double "bonus" RP from July 14 to July 31.
After this promotional deal, the original bonus RP will return until August 19 when the increased prices drop.
They also mentioned other changes for their games including:
- Correcting cases where some regions didn't have a single-transaction way to get 1350 RP champion skins.
- Switching most real-world currency prices to the standard "$X.99" model seen across mobile markets.
Full details of the change can be found on their official blog website post here.
