Definition of League of Legends Champion Skin Types

Last month we announced our Legacy Skin Project where we retired 21 classic skins from the League of Legends store to make room for the next generation of awesome champion regalia. Since our announcement there has been some confusion surrounding what constitutes a Regular skin vs. a Legacy skin vs. a Limited Edition skin. So, wed like to take a moment to clarify the differences between these skin types.

Regular Skins

These skins are available in the store year round and may be purchased any time in the store. However, they may turn into Legacy Skins at some point in the future, in the same way that the previous 21 classic skins were recently retired. We will always give advance notice of our intention to retire a regular skin before making it a Legacy Skin.

Legacy Skins

Legacy Skins are skins that are only available for a limited amount of time upon release, after which they will become unavailable for purchase and be placed into our Legacy Vault. Some, but not necessarily all, Legacy Skins will be re-released from the Vault for limited runs in the League of Legends Store. Again, we will always announce in advance when we plan to re-release any of these skins. Current Legacy Skins include the Snowdown Showdown 2011 collection and the 21 classic skins that were retired in November.

Moving forward, all holiday skins will be Legacy Skins, but those prior to Snowdown Showdown 2011 are Limited Edition Skins and wont be making a comeback in the Store.

Limited Edition Skins

Limited Edition skins are only available for a limited time, after which they will not be available for purchase again in the future. These skins include ALL holiday skins released before December 2011. These include skins like Kitty Kat Katarina, Ice Toboggan Corki, and Snow Bunny Nidalee.

Limited Edition also includes skins tied to special events such as PAX Jax, Riot Squad Singed, etc. The availability of future Limited Edition skins will be on a case-by-case basis depending on the event. For example, some will only be available for attendees of an event and some will be available to purchase in the Store for a limited time. These particular skins will no longer be available for purchase after they are retired.

You forgot about Promotional Skins, the ones that are not in the RP store but are available for purchase year round by other means only. Like Goth Anie and Huntress Sivir.
