League of Legends players in the U.K. will have to start paying 20% more when purchasing Riot Points. This adjustment was announced yesterday with Brexit being the decision for the change.

Riot Games said in an announcement..

“Last June, the U.K. voted to leave the European Union, triggering a drop in the value of the pound relative to other global currencies, particularly the US dollar. This change meant that while U.K. players were spending the same number of pounds on RP as before, players elsewhere in the world were paying a lot more in comparison.”

Riot went on to say that this is just a one-time deal. Stating..

“The cost of champions, skins, and other items will not change after the RP price adjustment. So any RP you buy now at the lower price will still unlock the same amount of content next month as it does today.”
