TL;DR: We’re updating our global pricing on July 15.
At the beginning of each year, Riot assesses the current state of global pricing and makes adjustments to account for changes in currency inflation, taxation, and regional discrepancies. Here's last year's post, for reference. We normally enact these changes around March or April, but navigating challenges with COVID-19 delayed this year's changes by a few months.
We’re notifying you now so you have visibility into the upcoming changes should you wish to purchase RP now before the changes take place. We’re also going to run an “Extra Bonus RP” promotion from July 1 until July 15 so you can stock up on RP.
Below is a breakdown of the upcoming changes.The price adjustments were calculated based on currency fluctuations that occurred in 2019 and new regional taxes that were introduced in the beginning of 2020.

When we release price increase announcements, we also try to run extra bonus RP promotions. For 2020, this will be a 100% increase to the bonus RP you get from buying RP in larger increments.
This promotion activates July 1 around 1:00 PM PDT (change may take an hour to complete) and lasts until July 15, 1:00 PDT when the price changes above go into effect.
