Calling something legacy and promising that they will be back eventually is not the same as them actually happening that way. I was excited that the Shadow Isles skins would be permanent. If legacy skins were actually going to reappear then can we get some sort of confirmation on when said legacy events will be happening?

The poll results are final, and the Shadow Isles skins will be Legacy. They will be in the store from the next patch until November 13. As with all Legacy skins, they may return to the store for special events in the future.

The timing of the next patch is unknown at this time. It is a large patch and is being worked on diligently day and night here at Riot.

I accept this, but I wish you guys would consider the mean spirited nature that underlies legacy or limited edition items in a virtual world. It's artificial scarcity, which means people are choosing to deprive others of skins. Next time make the decision yourselves please, this poll really made me hate some of the community.

But it's fair. The people decided, so I can't say you guys didn't try.

I don't think it makes sense as it's not a part of any event to make them legacy, but I suppose people want to deprive others of the skins so they feel special. I planned to buy the Hecarim skin anyway, so I don't really mind as much, but am a little disappointed.

It's also beneficial to you guys because it causes impromptu purchases as well.

well, look like my checking account is about to get a lot lighter

I'm not complaining, though.

Glad you rethought the initial decision, Riot. Thanks you.

It's not the fact that they are Shadow Isle skins, it's the fact that they were initial planned and designed as Halloween skins and are more Halloween themed than the Harrowing skins (excluding Brand).

It's also a fact that it's a tradition that Riot games has with holiday skins, and it rewards long time players and creates a "cool" factor when newer players see skins like that in game.
