Brilliant Idea, horrible execution.

The weeks stack for each type of ward skin. So if you buy two weeks of Deadfall wards on October 24, it will cost 400 IP and last you through November 7.


Oh, that's pretty cool then. I know you're getting a lot of negative feedback, but i really like the idea and i think the prices are, for the most part, reasonable. ^_^

I have to agree and throw in my comment, in the hopes of community betterment:

Making the skins temporary will no doubt lead to lower purchase rates, but I'm sure Hippalus et al will have accounted for this.

That being said, I would love to have permanent skins be available from the get-go. I plan on buying a few weeks worth of wards, but I hate to think of spending $10 on something that will only last 20 weeks or something.

Welp, you guys had my money until "for one week". Then I just laughed and posted this. Good try, though.

Same here.

Please make it so that within the store on the ward skins page there is a ward skin survey so you can get some real data (and announce said survey in the main page of the client etc). A lot of people probably won't buy because they are only temporary.

you had me until temporary, I'm not wasting anything unless I can choose to unlock it forever at a higher cost I'm sure.

I would only buy these ward skins if they were perm. I see no reason why they shouldnt be perm. The other holiday skins are perm, so why not these? I wouldnt buy the other ward skins either if they arnt perm.

Make them a permanent purchase, not this rental BS. So what if people want to drop Halloween themed wards all year round? If I purchase a Harrowing skin like I did with last years Bewitching Nidalee I'll use it whenever I darn well please despite whatever day it might be in real life. I did plan on picking up some ward skins but seeing them as temporary I won't even bother with them.

My prediction? Only the IP based ones will have any sales. I, nor any sane person, would spend real money(RP) on something that lasts a week when we can buy plenty of other things(skins, rune pages, champions) with RP that last forever.

I have a **** load of IP saved up, so I may buy a couple of weeks of the Deadfall one with IP, but there's no chance I'm spending my precious RP on temporary cosmetic upgrades.
