60% of the forums. Which is probably less then 5% of the whole community. I will never understand the need to listen to the smallest subset of a community. The forums are ALWAYS the smallest group of players.

We weren't sure what the player expectations and preferences would be around the Shadow Isles skins given the timing and design of the skins made them very similar to Harrowing skins. So rather than make an assumption, we decided to ask the players.

Ugh. Why even ask the players? Why would anyone want skins to be limited time only? Now I'm going to be not buying the Shadow Isle skins at all, instead of getting them later. Kinda lame.

because us as the "players" have the money to buy the skins and a majority would rather buy legacy over perma skins idk why release shadow isle at the same time as harrowing and not expect people to want them to be holiday legacy skins

It sucks you asked really minimal amount of people, in comparison to the whole playerbase (9k vs 32 million, wtf?), if they want them legacy.

I would pick underworld TF after a while, but now I don't have cash to spare. GG Riot

So you'd rather buy the skins because they're limited? Why? There's a set of those coming out anyway, why make another set limited as well? It's a great way to lose sales.

We all know that these skins were actually Harrowing skins- the right decisions was made.

Awesome. I'll proudly use my new headless Hecarim skin once it's available.
