WHAT THE ****?? That's completely contradictory to what you're offering. You CAN have these for a full year like you advertised FOR THE RIGHT PRICE, so how the **** can you say that's not one of your intentions? **** off and don't treat us like morons.

I dislike the temporary nature of this. It's been tried in many other F2P's to poor effect. I don't see why you'd care what skin I have on wards year round if I am allowed to use a Christmas skin or a harrowing skin year round.

Well screw that. No way in HELL am I paying for something that goes away after a week. 200 RP?

I'd rather wait till a champ is on sale and get them for 400+RP and keep them forever. That's just... sickening.

You don't want to have people to use them ALL YEAR ROUND?

But you can STOCK up to a YEAR? OMFG HIPPA. Go look in the mirror.

So smart of you *Claps*

I was excited to spend IP or even a hefty amount of RP for a permanent ward skin, but temporary for a week? I wouldn't even waste my left over RP for it, since I just add on to my RP when I see a skin I like and the left over RP I have will end up helping me pay for it. I don't see the worth in this at all. I would strongly reconsider making it permanent Riot, you'd make bank and you have your community here telling you that they wouldn't mind spending a heavier RP price.

I mean... besides the point... who gets to see my ward anyway? Besides my team? Enemy team is just gonna look at it for a second and kill it... :C

Juding from these downvotes, it looks like many people do not like this idea. Another thing, why couldn't you make a poll on the forum to ask the players about the opinions of wards skins being permanent? I really doubt this was your reasoning and if it was, you have done a poor job as you can see from the downvotes.

Although I don't really ever complain; and have spent a ridiculous amount of money on this game... This.

The only way I will be purchasing any ward skins is with IP or permanent RP based ones.

The current offering feels insulting TBH. :-/

But Harrowing champ skins popping up year round is fine?

I think the goal here is to get people to purchase a product you are offering. Offering that product as only a rental is NOT the way to achieve that goal, as you can probably tell from this immediate backlash.

Make the ward skins limited edition, but permanent like you do with the champ skins. You'll rake in the money.
