@Conrad_Max the game is less attractive to play when a company devalues your account without adding something somewhere else. Hard for me to support that type of business philosophy. I also was working on getting all characters to 10, 20, 50. So now instead of buying levels with gold, I should make other players suffer playing with me as I play champions I absolutely suck at.
Account level is a status symbol, so my lv 214 account does just fine as that. The biggest reason to buy levels with gold is to get the talents, so they could have just made it so you could buy them. They could have made levels cost more, so that most would not be able to buy the higher levels. Really not sure why it was an issue. Some players will suck and have a high level champion, even if they did not buy the levels with gold. Some people are real good with their champions but suck going for the win as a team.
