I guess they wont be doing it again this year, and that most likely means no Christmas map either. Seriously, the seasonal skins look lame on the normal map. A zombie brand playing in a sunny battle field, yeah that rocks. And I guess we can play the harrowing skins in twisted treeline, but what about the snowdown showdown ones? I really hope they do relise map skins this year

A map skin for the Harrowing would take a lot of resources and time to animate/create and Riot is already releasing alot of content be happy with what were getting.

They have said there will be no harrowing or snowdown maps. The maps caused some people to lag and as such unable to play during this time (-_-). They are unable to reuse the older harrowing and snowdown maps because of the SR update (I call lies!). Well hopefully I can at least get candy corn health potions this year.

They are realizing one new harrowing skin, and one general skin, and 5 icons. and they did it before when they had less money, why cant they do it now when they are booming?

I've been mentioning that for a year. A recap on map skins!

1) Map skins are awesome things that we're pretty damn sure players would love!
2) Map skins are massively resource intensive because we've upped the quality of maps a lot (Hello, Howling Abyss!) Making maps of the launch quality of original SR is faster, sure.
3) The environment team is busy working on other things that are more important currently, which is awesome, but sad because we can't have map skins yet.
4) We can't reuse the old map skins because Summoner's Rift 1.1 was released a year+ ago, and those skins can't work on the new map.

so you're saying there will be no themed map this year for harrowing and even Christmas?

and possible for "map skins" which we have to pay to play?
