I feel like Riot thinks I'm stupid by upping the price of skins but not improving the patches. Another patch comes with ranked being broken, games broken, long queue times, and random DC and bug splats. Eat my dick Riot. Either fire your patching department or get them to learn how to program.

Yea I'm going to give you more of my hard earned money to a company that breaks their game every two weeks. Again fix your problems before being greedy. A$$holes.

I won't buy it.
My exact thoughts. Either you make it a Legendary Skin and ask 1820 or you keep it at 975. We did not ask for the release skin to be any greater than previous ones. They decided to do this and then think well its got more to it, lets charge a little more.

If this skin needs to have more animations and models and everything to fit the new champion it DOES makes this skin more valuable than other normal skins, just because of the fact that riot needs to work more to produce said skin...
I think the problem here is no notice, no explanation, just doing it. If they had included details about how and why it would cost more. How it was an exception only for champions that evolved in multiple paths, etc.... THEN I'd be okay with it. Just tossing it in casually like we should expect it? Bleh

I'm not going to buy it. Basically because I'm buying Mustache Trondomere and High Command Kat instead.

... one single skin is released with a higher price tag and now riot is "upping the price of skins"?
Seriously, it's one single skin. Riot has never released so many skins in a row as they are doing lately and those are all 975 RP skins.
Not only that they are making visual upgrades without charging them on players who already have the champion/skin and without making the price of the remodeled champions/skins higher.
They are making runepages more accessible, thinking about bundle opportunities, revising rune prices, everything and you guys are making all that fuss because of ONE SINGLE SKIN YOU'RE NOT EVEN OBLIGED TO BUY?
People make no sense. That's why I like dogs...

I find it hard to believe that releasing one skin for a new champ, no matter how many bells and whistles it has, takes more effort than the 2 we used to get. This skin is on par with Arcade Sona, Soulreaver Draven and Full Metal Jayce, which were all 975 RP.

If you like it though, buy it if you think it's worth it. Just don't come back to GD 3-4 months from now complaining about the price of skins.

Bet you can't explain rammus full metal skin price is 975 or sad robot amumu also 975. Or arcade sona which to me is a legendary skin 975.
