Is the Traditional Karma skin going to become purchasable, limited edition, or legacy?

If there is one thing the League of Legends community has taught me, is that people can be out right jerks for no reason. I have nothing against people offering their opinion nor am I complaining about that. Itís the way they express their opinion that continues to amaze me. Riot has spent weeks and probably months working on this new skin. The least people could do is say thank you.

Karma is my favorite champ and although I love her legacy design, I think this new design is incredibly well done. Thank you Riot and all of the hard working employees that gave this rework some hard spent time. I canít wait to see the changes to her abilities and other skins.

Isn't that just a contradiction? If you really wanted to reward Karma faithfuls you would've limited the traditional skin to those who owned her before this announcement. Now 80% of the playerbase who sees this will pick her up for 3150 IP and the skin will basically mean nothing.

If the skin will be available in store too then there is no problem. But if it was meant to be limited, then why not actually make it limited.

Alright so I got the final word here.

Vintage Karma will be available for purchase for two weeks after Karma officially hits the live servers. After that, Vintage Karma will be retired to our legacy skins vault.

Karma's IP / RP prices will not change on her launch.

As for Karma being a reward for her old fans, it's a question of what you value. You already own Karma and if you liked her old aesthetic, this is the opportunity to retain that. If you want to be known far and wide as the first Karma adopter in the world, that might be a little more difficult ;(

Because it is better to have players throw a hissy fit about possibly losing a look they love? Like they have already been...

you guys should give traditional karma to the real karma players not everyone who buys her 24 hours before the launch.. SO LAME -.-

i actually bought a skin of karma a long time ago, and now you guys will change her and if i dont like her.. i cant even complain or refund her -.-

I liked her old aesthetic of having fans.
