This now limited edition skin will be available for purchase for 975RP from the 26th of August through the 28th of August. After this time Riot Squad Singed will be formally retiring and handing over the mantle of League of Legends mascot to our brand new team member, Riot K-9 Nasus.

If you've already acquired Riot Singed, or you're simply more of a dog person, you can also to pick up Riot K-9 Nasus during this time by either visiting the official Riot Games booth on the show floor or visiting the League of Legends Store where he will also be available for 975 RP.

Visit the Store during PAX Prime to get your hands on these epic Riot Squad skins, and for your final chance to bid farewell to Riot Singed before he retires!

Except now that it won't.

Some people were waiting for a riot event, Riot, to buy riot squad singed. You can't just make it limited after saying it would be at riot events. Especially without telling us it would become limited.

I was out of state the last time it went on sale, and have been waiting for another Riot event. Come to find out, he won't be on sale anymore.

Put it back on sale for riot events. At least one more time with an announcement saying it will be the last event. Seriously.

With Riot Squad Singed now a limited skin, that means we have room for a new member of the unit!
Just make an announcement that there will be one FINAL riot squad singed sale.

"Any time you're at an event where Riot has a representative, they'll be armed to the teeth with codes redeemable for Riot Singed."
"Now, if an airline ticket isn't in your budget, but you still want to get your hands on Riot Singed, you'll be able to purchase him from the League of Legends store while a live event is going on."

I would agree with you, had Riot ever mentioned that the skin would EVER become limited, OR if they announced a final sale or some such. They didn't. I literally have been doing the math to make sure I would have enough RP left over to buy the skin. Until it randomly became limited with no warning.


For all the people posting/ thinking "Well then I want XXXXX limited skin, too!" This guy gets it:

Now just weeks before PAX Prime they announce that this will be the final chance to grab Riot Singed and it will only be given to those who COSPLAY and it will not be in the store ONE LAST TIME.

It would still be limited after PAX Prime ends[3 days] it will thus not be available to anyone who didn't get it from the event or the store.

All they need to do is put it up for sale during PAX Prime and allow ALL who attend their booth to get one.

this will make the majority of their players and fans happy.


EDIT: If you support Riot Squad Singed going on sale for a last, announced time, instead of just thrown out and forgotten, please up vote this post. A lot of people who already own the skin are down voting. <3

Hopefully we can get a reds attention...

Edit again! :

What a lot of people do not understand is that Riot put a normal skin on "limited" status with no previous warning. There was no "this is your last chance" thread. Why? Does anyone remember Rusty Blitzcrank? He was a normal skin, and when riot decided to make him limited, they gave us time limit AND a sale!!!!:

Rusty Blitzcrank skin (previously 520 RP), now only 390 RP!

Don't miss out on adding these charming digs for everyone's favorite metal man. After this weekend, the Rusty Blitzcrank skin will be locked away in the Riot vault and will no longer be able for purchase in the Store.


Note: As with the holiday skins, you can continue to use the Rusty Blitzcrank skin after it has been discontinued, but only if you have purchased it.



UPDATE: This sale has ended.
Why was this not the case for Riot Singed, Riot? We are waiting for your response.

Edit: 20 pages and no red yet...
Edit: Killburst made a petition to increase the chance that Riot will see our plea ! /singed here

Put it on sale at least one more time. Riot you should have given us a heads up before making the skin limited.

I agree that announcing the last time he'll be on sale would have been a smart choice.
