How about Riot just releases the visually upgraded skin under a new name?

This is mostly about when the skin was released, and not what event it's tied to. We stopped doing Limited and moved to Legacy a while back (after last halloween?), so that's why it seems like there's a difference.

Consider yourself shocked. Although your post did help me notice that one- I admittedly skimmed some of the coffee debate and nearly missed fadedheroz' post entirely.

...Why not do complete remakes of Human Ryze, Silver Kayle, and Black Alistar, then sell ALL the bundle skins/champions who have said skins together as a 3250 theme? (Kind of like PFE, but with more champs.)

It seems like a decent way to keep the bundle skins exclusive to those willing to pay the cash for them, yet offer them to newer players who really question the logic of buying a hard copy of LoL for a number of low-IP-cost champions and (aside from Goth Annie) less-than-awesome skins.

I'm also questioning the decision to make Nutcracko Limited, but that's just me. :P

Hipp I have a question for you and/or Ames. As a person who owns almost every Kayle skin (just check my account, I have Unmasked, Battle Born, Judgment, Aether Wing, and by next paycheck I'll have Viridian.) Was Silver Kayle (possibly my favorite) only available as a pre-order bonus for the physical copy? I've not seen anything other than the Digital Collectors for Goth Annie and the Champion Pack for Sivir.

On a side note would there be a chance you'd actually set up a "Bundle Skins pack" that sells all the bundle pack skins for a grouped price in consideration, maybe as a holiday deal?

Thanks for the shock. Considering Hippalus' history with this forum and Reddit, though, could I be blamed?

It goes back to the 3900 bundle after a certain number of days... Where's the "devalue"?

Your iPod didn't explode upon dropping because it isn't supposed to. Kinda like how coffee isn't supposed to cause intense tissue burns.
You do understand the severity of third degree burns, right?
I have had severe second degree burns covering my entire back. I do understand the severity. Does it change the fact that she did something stupid? No.

"You trespassed on my property BUT OH you got hurt, it's ok, have compensation." You shouldn't be rewarded for being stupid even if your stupidity takes a turn for the worse due to something that was out of your hands.

You're driving drunk. Another guy is driving drunk but happens to be in your lane, head on. Due to impaired judgement, you both can't dodge each other. Is anyone at more fault here because technically if it wasn't for the other party, you wouldn't have been hurt in that situation? You'd both get railed with a nice DUI charge even though HE was in YOUR lane. He might get hit with more, but both are forced to take responsibility.

I'm sorry, but I can't feel compassion for someone who burns themselves in their crotch for sticking their coffee there and it happened to be far hotter than it should have been. EVEN IF IT WASN'T SCALDING it would have caused damage. It may not have been as severe, but it would have still been there.

Just because you bought RP due to a future planned sale that went south doesn't put Riot at fault for your actions. Like I said, they made the mistake of making the mistake in the first place. You ALSO made a mistake purchasing RP early if you did. Both are at fault. Not just one party.

Nope. Especially not with their 'we don't want people to know the sale is canceled unless they come to the forums' attitude.

It was last Hallowe'en. Haunting Nocture and Bewitching Nidalee were the last round of limited skins. Aside from Championship Riven, I think?
