I'm not sure why I have to own the champion to buy a skin. There have been many times that I wanted to buy a discounted skin, but couldn't because I didn't own the champion. Is the option to buy the skin THEN earn the champion that bad?

Because the other option is that I don't buy the skin, save my RP, purchase fewer skins and purchase less RP. I want to support LOL and buy RP, but I'm not going to pay $20 for one skin. If I can purchase more discounted skins when they are on sale then earn the champion with IP, I'll be more likely to spend and buy more RP, if not, I won't.

I wish they'd change this.

Programmed here so skin = champ.

Be happy it's not like Garena where even with free skins you need to buy the champ first.

Riot assumes people who buy skins are people who have enjoyed a champion enough to buy it, either with IP or RP. That being said, there's really no reason you shouldn't be allowed to buy a skin for a champion you don't own.

Marketing scheme. People who want a skin badly enough will have to pay for the champion first, instead of buying the skin at a discounted price and unlocking the champion later with IP.

Um, did you even read the post?

As I stated, after I buy a skin on sale, I would build up and use IP to buy the champion. The key is that skins are only on sale for a limited time, so you need to buy them then to get the discount.

As it is now, since I don't have the champion, I can't buy the discounted skins, so I won't be buying anymore RP because I haven't spent any. It's pretty simple, if I can buy the skins on sale, then I'll buy more RP to get more skins. If I can't buy the skins then I won't be buying more RP.

As long as they give players a warning that they won't be able to use the skin without first owning the champion, its all ok by me.
