My pleasure. I miss getting to interact like this anyways.

Sir, I applaud your efforts and twirl my handlebar mustache for you.
If that is a factual mustache, then you have done more than just applaud me. You've commended me in a very gentlemanly fashion. So, points for that.

It is, because more people are on my side of the fence.

Considerably more.

How do you determine who gets how much compensation? It's already been stated how that wouldn't work by a red of all people which is why there is a plan for the reduction in cost based on champions already owned with the possibility to compensate those who owned champions prior to purchase before to make it fair.

12 hour sale. Then anyone WHO truely wants it will have to do so in said time, then toss it back into the bundle until you guys rework it.

Also, why even bother to lower the price? Then it isn't a bundle at all.

If they did, technically the price is about 2300 RP, assuming Annie is 975 that means if ALL champs are owned, what to lower it to 1100?

Pfft, whatever, it is only 125 more RP.

Thus, why the big debate, make all bundle skins available.

Full disclosure, it indeed is and I have earned the nick name in my online circles as Epic Stache Man.

Ames, it seems like Riot has been making substantial errors in judgement lately - Halloween Brand pricing, Slay Belle Katarina recall animation, now this.

How does Riot intend on being more accountable to its playerbase in the future to avoid missteps?

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.
After seeing how you and they react, yes. Trust me, you are way worse than I am.

That's really what it all boils down to, isn't it? I made a post some pages back about the need to defend bad purchases because of an emotional investment knowing you overpaid etc., and this behavior is just an extension of that behavior really. Kind of a share my pain deal, or maybe misery loves company.
