RP cards can be purchased in some shops like Best Buy, Walmart, Gamestop, 7/11 and EB Games.
Europe (EUW & EUNE)
In Serbia, RP can be purchased in gameS retail stores and online shop.
Garena Southeast Asia (SEA)
In SEA, RP can be purchased using Garena Shells. The price per server is different from the other. Garena Shells are available at 7-Eleven, Ministop, and other local and online retailers.
RP were formerly known as Combat Points early in the European server, and Riot Points until the announcement that the name would change to simply RP, to coincide with the announcement of multiple games for the 10th Anniversary Event, which do not make use of the currency, hence making the name Riot Points incorrect.
On occasion, such as the server issues during Season One rotation week 40, summoners that played that month were compensated with 350 RP.
In December 2011, Riot awarded 450 RP to summoners above level 6 who had never been banned in the prior two months.
