That is the problem isn't it?

I have asked multiple times if I buy the bundle now, will I get it fully refunded but keep the skin since I own all champs (except last 4 new ones)?

If so, I'll go ahead and buy the bundle.

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.
Well they'd still have to add 20 dollars in rp to buy the pack since the pack also includes the rp back.

That's where they get extra money from you. Sure you get some rp back, but you had to put extra money into your account to buy the pack. Smart way to get money I'd say.

Ames, assuming you could do this over, would you change anything? Or do you feel that this backlash, while somewhat painful for you, was worth learning from and useful to gauge how to better set up a similar promotion in the future?

Likewise on the other side of the fence. Apparently your side of the fence is better than ours according to you though. We're not looking for Goth Annie to disappear forever, just put back to its original position. You're looking to change it up.

Honestly the biggest issue with the whole thing I think was your timing.

You guys announced it pretty much as you disabled ranked queues without any warning and people were experiencing horrendous lag and interruptions. So people flooded the site and forums already upset trying to find out what was going on and trying to find patch notes...and found said announcement. Had you announced it 2 days ago I don't think the speed at which it got down votes would have been anywhere close to the same.

You realize they could just as easily comp people who bought the bundle for the skin AND put it for sale in the store? it's not an all or nothing prop here.

Why legendary price, this is what I don't understand.

Why do you want your community to pay that much for a simple skin? Would you feel better if you saw everyone else paying that much?

That's pretty ****ing selfish tbh.

Had they announced it a couple weeks ago, I wouldn't have bought the pack and I'd actually be on the other side of the argument right now.
