Out with the old and in with the new- this week, we bid farewell to the old Influence Points (IP) currency system and saw content pricing shift towards Blue Essence (BE). There's understandably a lot of feelings around these changes, so we figured it'd be the perfect time for another "Let's Discuss" post! This post is focused on Blue Essence and content pricing; we have a different post for discussing [Runes Reforged and the impact of new Runes on the game](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/gameplay-balance/qtv6qtKE-lets-discuss-pre-season-2017-runes-reforged).
For those of you who are new to the series, the "Let's Discuss" posts are focused on consolidating *useful feedback* about the topic at hand. This is a place to put high-level concerns and/or suggestions about the new content. We want people to discuss and debate what's working and what isn't. This is *not* a place to simply complain about the new system; posts here should be focused on constructive feedback and discussion.
*_THIS POST WILL BE AGGRESSIVELY MODERATED_*
If your post isn't contributing to a meaningful and respectful discussion, expect it to be removed.
I think that's all the introduction we need for this, so please take a look at the comments and contribute where you can! Remember to keep it respectful- we won't all agree about everything with the new system. Discuss away!
