Your thoughts on Legacy Skin sale? It's been almost a year since we've had one.

She has a skin in the making 'battle preiestess soraka' i believe, but they made it before the rework and it doesn't quite meet the standard of her new rework or something so they are going to remake/ fix it.
At least that's what i gathered from the forums.
I doubt thye'll make another udyr skin for a while and if they do it will no doubt be more expensive, and lets hope teemo doesnt get a new skin for ages.

I know this has probably been asked to death before, but are there any plans at all to increase IP gain? I feel like it accumulates so slowly over time that it'll take me up to 2 weeks+ just to have a new champion, which I probably won't have optimal runes for. Even with WotD its such a grind.

There are many cool ideas being looked at, but I need to be careful about setting expectations, because some of the ideas might never see the light of day if they are determined to be infeasible technically or if they affect balance or gameplay in any way. One new feature we’re considering experimenting with this year is the ability to purchase new skins for wards that tie to an event, such as Snowdown Showdown. The new wards could be unlocked for a limited period of time (eg. a week or two) and there might be several choices so that players who use wards would have different options for how to get in the holiday spirit.

I'll tell you what, I would pay good money for those Motivational Wards I read about a while back.

BRB looking for link.

I like the idea, but unless I'm reading it completely wrong, you're presenting the following idea:

Pay RP for something like a "Candy Cane Wards!" skin. Then during the Winter months we can put down candy canes instead of the winged sticks we all know and love.

The only thing that strikes me as odd is paying RP for a temporary cosmetic effect. Boosts are fine because you're getting something tangible for your money. While Ward skins sound amazing, if you're only going to allow use for a few weeks, it either needs to be cheap or it it needs to be unlocked automatically every year and you just pay for it once.
