Gonna ask again, will we ever be able to buy some of the legacy skins retired last year/earlier this year?

this. also related, @hippalus you mentioned earlier that there'd be a cleansing of inactive names around this time, when can we expect to see that?

Also, a lot of the newer skins(Battle Bunny Riven specifically) have not gone on sale in close to, or over, 3 months. Any chance we'll be seeing some newer skins on sale anytime soon?
It's been a couple months since you posted this question, and since then, there has been a double IP weekend as well as a 10 day IP boost for all NA players The general approach currently is to give them out to celebrate events like the GDC Online Audience Award, or when we screw something up badly. If we go a few months without either of those happening, we'll likely do something just because.

Another way we've been trying to bring more value to players is putting items for sale that have never been on sale before. First it was 2 for 1 rune pages, next will be 50% off summoner name changes, and then we'll see where we can go from there.

Regarding skins, yes, we've put more of a focus recently on making sure all skins (except Legendary) make it into sales at some point. Hopefully you've seen the results of that lately.

How does it feel moving from everyone's favorite new rioter to be shamed in Just a few weeks?

As the number of champions and skins continues to increase when do you think the number of champions and skins going on sale each week will have to increase?

Are we ever going to get a response to the new Lulu skin debacle?

We have been waiting since its release for a good response as to why it is your "testing" price of 1350, when compared to the Khaz skin it pales in comparison. Also, any word on why support was telling people Zombie Brand would be 1350, and turned out to be a Legendary?

Any plans for Purchasable Summoner Icons? ones that could be bought with RP or IP?

I seen the chinese summoner icons and thought it was cool that they had cartoony versions of some of the champions, and I would love to see summoner icons of the champions even if we had to buy them.

I liked that we have had event / reward icons so far but would like to see more in store for the future and an option to pick / buy some

Please make sure that you do a name purge before the sale.

What are your thoughts on players earning very small amounts of RP through game play? I am by no means a learned person in the fields of game publishing or psychology, but people who are have told me you get more people monetizing when you open up every currency in the game to people playing for free.

I have not personally looked at the research, but the theory makes sense to me. Let's say you give 2 or 3 RP for a matchmaking game. After a few hundred games a non-paying player buys a skin or champion. Assuming the skin or champion is sufficiently awesome, the experience of the purchase will be sufficiently rewarding to make the player not want to wait another few hundred games to make another purchase. Purchasing content from the PVP.net store is no different from purchasing things from any other store in that once a person makes a purchase, he or she is more likely to make future purchases.

Is there ever going to be another two-for-one rune page sale? And is there any chance of it being during the holidays?
