Look, I'm just going to be blunt here - you went about this in the most horrendously terrible possible way short of just instabanning people.

Spending RP, or a fair chunk of IP, for TEMPORARY ward skins is the dumbest possible way to test how people want to do this stuff. If you'd given me the option to spend 500-1000RP to get a ward skin that I can use forever? Honestly, I probably would have bought several of these - I love spiders, I'm a dedicated support who wards CONSTANTLY, and I'd love to see some difference going down.

With this money-grubbing failstorm... I won't be wasting any RP on them. At most, maybe enough IP to test the IP ones. Once.

This makes no sense. " We don't want ghosts popping up everywhere" What about last years Halloween skins, people still have them. Why can't it be the same for these? They're skins too.

A good idea ruined

My guess is NA isn't really the target market, alot of Asian developers have temp items and I'm guessing that's where Riot will make their money.

Also 800 IP for a 1 week ward skin is absolutely insane

Based off the response of this post many players like the ward skins but no one will pay **** for temps. People in a video game community don't want to pay real money for a rental, thats like saying if you buy a skin its available to you for a a year... There is your understanding of how the players feel about ward skins.

Edit: You can't wait to activate your wards.

They automatically activate themselves.

So I can't buy a ward skin now and use it over Halloween week. I have to either wait until that week comes, or buy numerous weeks of skins.

Lovely.
