LOL @ Red Baron Corki still being considered legendary. 420 RP Veigar Skin has more particle effect changes from the original than Red Baron Corki does. So sad.

We're talking about a handful of models vs the hundreds of complex models made for other video games.

This philosophy is "out with the old and in with the new" rather than making people feel they are equals with the skins they own and the champions they buy, which is a terrible prospect.
As we raise the quality bar for new skins, these skins have obviously begun to show their age. The problem with remaking them is that the core concepts behind these skins simply donít warrant Legendary status by todayís standards. Legendary skins have evolved into a complete reimagining of the champion that elevates it to an entirely new incredible form, something these concepts simply donít do effectively.
