- Pay-to-hire content.
- More expensive "almost legendary!" release skins.
- Few discounts on older champions, no discounts on older skins (to the contrary, they get removed so they become valuable collector's items!).
- Fewer release skins in order to "ensure a consistent high quality" -> Wildfire Zyra, Death Blossom Elise.
- Constant balance changes and a very rigid meta ensuring your champions have a half-life of about 3 months and you have to keep buying new ones.
- Oh, and of course the 6300-only thing.

This game is going from expensive to unaffordable.

I suspect Riot knows they will lose the newbie vote once Dota 2 hits with all heroes unlocked for free from the start, so they're aiming to squeeze money out of veteran players.

This is pathetic. Thoroughly disapointed in you, Riot.

That would make sense, except that you included the option of stock piling them and using them all year if you buy enough. You need to drastically lower the price or make them permanent at a higher cost.

I normally have nothing bad to say about riot... but this is bad. extremely bad
im guessing not making this permanent is going to make a LOT of players not buy them. i know i wont, why pay for something that only lasts a week :S not even worth the ip and i say that while sittign on 26k of it unspend on my eu account

So it's okay for halloween skins to pop up all year round but bad for halloween wards to be visible all year round.. NO one will really pay attention to the details of the ward while being in game. But the person with the skin will have the satisfaction of having a skin and being different from others, putting RIot profit wise and the players in a win win situation.

I will not even spend one ip/rp on these ward skins, and I am pretty sure others will not too.

we like them well enough fot you make them permanent.

we don't like them well enough to be rented at us.
