Riot Games’ new payment policy, which allows players to pay in installments, has not pleased the Latin American community.
There are some occasions when companies’ policies do not convince their customers. This also applies to video game developers. We have often seen comments through social networks about these significant changes. Right now, Riot Games is in a wave of criticism after publishing the payment method that will be applied in some Latin American countries for their games.
Riot Games’ new payment policy for some Latin American countries
As announced on social networks yesterday, players in some Latin American countries can buy LoL skins and pay for them with an installment system.
According to the information revealed by Riot Games, players in LATAM can purchase that aspect so dreamed by the players, and the new payment method will allow them to pay for it little by little.
With this new payment method, players can buy everything they want in the game using a credit card and finance it over several months.
It is important to note that people must pay interest on all financing. In the case of Riot Games, players who finance their purchases will not escape this interest.
People who take Riot’s installment payment option can split their payments into 3, 6, 9, or 12 months with fixed payments. In this way, players can buy as much stuff as they want and pay for it monthly instead of paying for it all at once.
¡Juega a tu manera y paga a tu manera!

Riot Games has received criticism for the new Latin America payment mechanism
The gaming community, of course, has been paying attention to this announcement by Riot Games. Many claims that this measure will end up affecting and hurting them. On the other hand, some people claim that Riot has modified their payment method because in-game items have become so expensive that not everyone can afford them. At the same time, many users also wonder what will happen to all those kids who will now try to buy skins and pay for them with the new funding system.
This payment method can only be used in some Latin American countries, including Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico. In addition, it can be used in Riot Games PC games.
Despite how annoyed players have been initially, we must wait to see if Riot succeeds with this new payment method and if users will receive it. After that, it simply remains in oblivion, and nobody uses it.
