The goal here is...to add a new element to the event and help us understand how players like and use ward skins.


Except nobody is going use them because rentals are bad.

Bad. Bad. Bad.

They're bad.

Any other (less Chinese) company would make all wards randomly have these skins during the Halloween event.

If players like the concept of ward skins, the longer term plan would likely be to have permanent ward skins year round plus lower cost rentals for the holidays. This is an experiment with a new type of content and it doesn't make sense to offer permanent non-holiday ward skins until we see if players use and enjoy it.


Well immediately it is obvious that people do not like renting ward skins or paying more for a longer ownership time.
What might end up happening is that people will buy the ward skins at first (which I might add, will only work on one of the three maps in the game), realize the skins have a timer and no longer buy them. This means your data will have a huge starting popularity but exponentially fall and bring about a horde of angry summoners.
Though what actually happens time will tell.

It feels though Riot might miss the ball on this awesome idea. Already there are a few nails in the coffin.

Renting what amounts to 1 or 2 kb worth of data is not cool riot.

Will not buy unless made permanent.

It's one thing to pay real money to unlock a fake item (which I do), but to pay real money to RENT a fake item...uhhh, no.
