If Riot simply wanted to make some extra money they'd do it in a heartbeat, but the company has integrity.

Also, consider this. 90% of you who want Limited Edition skins want them BECAUSE they're rare. If everyone had Kitty Katarina she wouldn't be nearly as alluring as she is.
Ever consider that some people don't care about rarity and just want to get a chance at acquiring something they want? And the only reason they are rare is BECAUSE they are not being sold anymore. I also almost NEVER see any Ltd skin being used in games, making them truly rare indeed. LOL

If you implement a system with no control from Riot in any way where skins will just get artificially inflated in price then don't do it. I guess we who were unfortunate enough to start playing this game are just stuck holding the short stick, as always. Just sell them. Abolish Limited as a concept on virtual goods. Unless Riot wants to go Blizzard rout and have a RMAH. I am jumping ship if that ever happens.

Well one thing is for sure, this is a much better idea then the 2k upvote xD. Will this include being able to trade skins for limited edition skins or can you only trade rp for them. And what exactly are the plans to stop hackers and scammers (people who lie their account was hacked) to exploit this system.

It's pretty clear that there's 3 choices that players want to see.

Can we just have a combo sale to make everyone happy?

There's a part of me that's torn about this.

One side of me says "So what? That's the market, and if people are willing to pay it, that's on them."

The other side of me says "Better make sure the current owners keep their integrity. Would hate to see the principles they've lauded the entire time thrown out the window just for some hypocritical profits to them"

Different issues, different resolutions, different departments, etc. etc. etc.

Dear Summoners,

Missed the limited period sales of Harrowing skins last year? Just joined LoL this year? Worry no more! Here we are bringing some of the most wanted legacy skins back to you! And, you get to decide which ones will be back for SALE!

Simply vote for the ones you want to bring back before 1200 27 Nov, and top 5 choices will be on sale @ 70%, 60%, 50%, 40% and 30% off respectively from 1200 30 Nov to 2359 3 Dec!
This is what I asked support in a ticket once. Why Garena and other places have "Limited" skins almost always available, or bring them back regularly. They told me they won't come back, no reason why other regions still have them.

Explain that to me Riot.
