Hey, Ames or Hip, I'm not sure if you're allowed to talk about this, but I have a Silver Kayle skin on an account I abandoned. When/if you guys release that skin trading thing Hip was talking about, will I be able to use it to move that Kayle to my main account? I realize it may cost RP to trade it and that's fine.

Everyone tries to bleed everyone else dry of as much as they can. Her medical bills and compensation for her troubles weren't worth what she made off of the case.

"The jury damages included $160,000[2] to cover medical expenses and compensatory damages and $2.7 million in punitive damages."
Dude this is McDonald's we're talking about, not some poor, innocent family owned non-franchise fast food joint. You really think 3 million dollars phased them? They could have afforded to replace their faulty machines but didn't. McDonald's is not the victim here.

One day.
Christmas Eve isn't as good as New Years Eve.

Exactly. "They can afford it so it makes it k." Riot can afford a lot too. Why doesn't someone sue them over this "Bait-and-switch" everyone keeps claiming? Maybe because no one could pull it off because there's no case here?

God this thread is good.
You sum up the stance of pretty much everyone opposing it.

Pure, immaculate selfishness.

Despite how awesome it was/is, FrankenTibbers is Limited. There won't be any way to purchase it (that I'm aware of as of this post).

It's terrible.

(there might be some merit in it at some point- 'greedy' incentives aren't terrible for people on either end of the purchase usually, but the execution would matter- not convinced that a 1:1 % ratio is the right way to do it, if at all)

I am excited to see whats "in-store" for what your planning on these skins. Good luck and thanks again!
We aim to please.

Considering how short the sale was actually announced for, and that the announcement has been updated to reflect this decision, I don't think we've done that poor of a job with this one. If it had been been up for a week - I would agree with you. I'm biased, though.

But being FORCED to get them to get a skin adds them to my champ list, which means there is a decent chance they will come up in ARAM instead of a character I would actually like to play.

And my post is retarded... right.

EDIT: For the mentally challenged, I know those champs are not everyone in the bundle, just an example list of champs I have tried and hated.
