I will never pay IP or RP for something thats temporary and INVISIBLE to half the players. RP boosts/IP boosts are actual benefits to players. Wards skins for RP is just a money grab. Thats all I see.

38 pages that is almost exclusively negative within 1 hour of the announcement made during an off hour


Perhaps it's time to reconsider and save face Riot. Something like "Due to popular demand we give you a permanent ward skin option, for 3x the temp price you can give your wards some flavor year round" will suffice

Please make this clearer....in general. And in the future.

When you don't go out of your way to explain your logic behind this, it makes Riot seem like it's adopting Nexon principles when it comes to F2P Cash shop.

And that's a really fast way to turn a large majority of buyers against you.

I feel many players enjoy Riot because of the visceral feeling that comes from most things being permanent, not rented, ESPECIALLY cosmetics.

Stepping away from that without reasoning to the playerbase is like abandoning the ideals that get organizations to where they are once they get "there".

i think this has to be one of the largest failures riot has made, and they don't make many failures..

I dare say from all the negative posts, you have "How players like ward skins"

I took the time to log in and down-vote because it's BS to sell us something impermanent.

Even temporary IP and XP boosts result in something permanent: more IP and XP.
