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.
i understand but i still dislike it =\

Yeah, they've made subtle changes to the map itself and the Snowdown map skin caused a lot of people's computers to lag.

For this year, no. I've been trying to let people know that, but forums move fast.

We want to do them, this year is out though. And we hear how much you guys think these are cool (though we think they're really cool too!)

What other things are they working on that are more important?
Are they like the skin department that avoid some of the most legendary skin ideas ever in favor of random ones?

Actually, instead of a map skin, I would like it if you shifted the map so it was in a diamond shape rather than a square so blue team doesn't have an advantage against purple.
