The right thing to do, was to not reverse the decision, and compensate the bundle buyers with some RP or whatever.

What they did, managed to piss off everyone.

The thread talking about the bundles states that it's an exclusive so...
No. It is not going on sale anymore. It is still only avail via the pack.

Otherwise why have the bundle at all, or tailor it to not duplicate things?

However, when a good changes, the people who bought the bundle originally shouldn't get the new change unless they pay again because that was not waht they paid for the first time.

Think about this:

Original Bundle of Wine, Cheese, and a Goth Annie skin

Goth Annie gets upgrade

New Bundle of Wine, Cheese and a New Goth Annie skin.


The original bundle owners do not get the upgrade unless they pay for it.
New people get the new Goth Annie skin.

Fair is fair.
What I find SUPER hilarious about all this, is all the QQers that didn't want Goth Annie in the store for a WEEK at 975 are all up on Hipps nuts thanking him for this. When the net effect is going to be in the end to PERMANENTLY put Goth Annie in the store (likely for 975ish). All the champs in the bundle are cheap as hell to get with IP, so most folks who want this skin are gonna get away with being able to buy her without having to pay for champs in the bundle anyways.

Ames, thank you for caring enough to stick around and answer questions/bring everyone up to speed on what's going on with this Goth Annie stuff. You're awesome, and I appreciate that you, Hipp and the Riot team tried to give us all a chance to buy the skin separately regardless of how it turned out.

They weren't saying "screw you guys" to anyone by the retraction. You guys may have been hyped a bit, but you weren't expecting to suddenly get Goth Annie whereas people who owned Goth Annie already were expecting it to stay limited to the DCE.

I made fun of the people who opposed the sale, whether they are bundle buyers or not, I don't care.

And cool story bro, I would make many more threads to make fun of your kind.

But it will be done in a way that compensates those who already paid for the pack while owning champions in it. I can live with that because it gives me back some of the value that Goth Annie held from buying it. I don't agree with just outright selling of the skin though.

That's your own flawed perception, there were LOTS of people annoyed, disappointed and generally upset at riot for reversing their decision.
