Would you tell us the price of Zombie Brand? I'd really like to know if he is 975RP or not. Thanks a lot.

Other than the fact that summoner icons pretty much have stayed the same for the past 2 years before the release of PFE... It's a fairly big deal.

These situations change constantly which is why people try not to post information that may turn out not to be true. I know for sure now that the skins will not be released today. We're targeting to get them to you before the weekend. There is a chance that won't happen.

League of Legends is like a battleship with 800 sailors that is constantly getting new weapons and navigational upgrades while traveling at 25 knots. Everyone on the boat is working towards the best possible outcome but no one person knows everything or can predict exactly what will happen in the next battle. Or exactly when.

There is no other game that supports as many players in as many parts of the world, and so it is pointless to compare LoL to games that are much smaller but have more features or more reliable updates. Piloting a rowboat is easier and allows greater flexibility, but you'll still get crushed by the battleship.

So no skins means no elise i assume?

Why cant you just release everything all at once like on the pbe? I dont understand why they are in the game, but unavailable to buy. Honestly asking, not flaming

Have you guys considered hiring someone who has the job of going around to all the relevant departments and asking questions, and then coming up with a ball park best and worst case scenario, and then finally relays that information to the community? I feel like his salary would pay for itself in all the good will he would generate in your customers.

That's a good assumption for today.

I'm no tech guy but my guess is there are two main issues there:

1) It doesn't matter as much if stuff on the pbe breaks when released.
2) Stuff breaks more often when millions of people interact with it than when thousands of people do

So there's a whole different level of testing and problem solving when releasing content to the main game.

Thank you for the update Hip. That's all I needed, I'm good until Monday without no new skins now.
