If they want to remove the stipend that's fine, but it can be something of a goal for testers to try every champ with every skin. It's something to do where winning or losing doesn't matter, (why people complain so much about losing on PBE is beyond me. It's so laggy that it doesn't matter.) Skins should be available for IP as well, since no one can buy RP anyway. It's insulting that they think any differences between PBE and live prices are going to confuse the players.
