This is actually not the problem, as it is not only about Kat skin. But about ALL limited skins. Allowing 1 skin through is not the point. In essence penalizing new players has always been a pet peeve of mine. What did I do or all other newer players do to be treated so differently? Why the punishment of not being able to get that which we want, again in a virtual world where "value" is subjective and has no true meaning?

Hippalus, do you read what is suggested or do you just glance for certain words? You're responding to something I didn't say.

However, on that point, allowing people to sell these skins would just create an Diablo 3-like auction system, further creating a bunch of angry customers when they're outbid and exacerbating your problems.

EDIT: Or at the very least have the art department re-create a new set of these skins, with some differences, and market those. It's not fair to punish new players over this.

The 50% off on the rune pages, will it be for RP or IP? Also, the bundle of rune pages, will those be on sale too? This is assuming you guys decide to do that of course.

Yes, if the voting is close, we will err on the side of doing more rather than less. Option #5 is tracking closely at this point as well, especially since the edit.

Exactly.

@Hippalus, has the topic of whether it's fair to the large portion of players who never heard of the game in its first year (It was rather small) that can't buy any of the 2010 year Limited skins (which, arguably, are some of the most popular) every occured in the Riot offices before? Yes, when the playerbase was smaller, it was a reasonable promise, but considering the explosion of popularity, would it not be fair to render them legacy instead of just limited?

I think it's pretty fair that the old holiday skins were sold as a one time thing. You weren't there so why should you get them? There are a couple skins from that time that I would love to have but at the time I didn't play the game, even though people told me that I should, and it's my problem that I wasn't able to get them. I like the idea of exclusive skins for supporting the game at that time.

I myself really wish I had some of the older limited edition skins, but I know that I can never get one and that's why I want it so much.

Also, with an ever rising number of champions, do you think future events could have a greater variety of champions with featured thematic skins? Just looking at harrowing for the last three years, the number of skins have continually decreased while the amount of champions increased.
iirc They said that once the legacy system went into place, they'd never create any more limited skins other than event (physical event) skins. Which would be another "commitment". Which also fits, since the only two they've had since have been Riot Graves (Convention Skin) and Championship Riven (WC Event Skin)
