I don't understand why this would be a problem even if its not the goal....

I just wanted to share that I would drop 200 RP per ward skin if these were permanent.

"doesn't make sense all year" is a stupid claim -- I can use my harrowing champion skins all year with no problem. People aren't suddenly confused about what's going on, rather, they say "oh that's an awesome skin!"

I loved the idea of ward skins.... Until I read they were temporary.
To be honest I thought you were just going to change all wards in game for special seasonal holidays for free which would be neat.

I think you either need to make them free and temporary or sell them permanent. Your shop currently has nothing temporary for sale and I like it that way. I think you should keep it that way.

Why not make the ward skins a theme. You can buy all of them for $30 or you can choose to rent them. I may not be the best marketer or whatever, but as a support role main I was very excited to see these skins, since riot doesnt like to give supports alot of skins.

I'm confused how the rental works.

You buy them, and they last a week after getting activated..? How do you activate it?

I don't understand how you stock up for a year's worth? Is it consumable?

Either way, I'm not a fan of spending RP on something for just a week. IP maybe, but even then, I'd rather it be for the entire holiday season.

Hmm.

Interesting concept. I do like the idea, and I wouldn't mind paying for it. I just think there needs to be a little more thought into how they are obtained / used.

So they only stack if you buy the same exact ward skin? If you buy two different skins on October 24, they will both expire on October 31?

I love the ward skins, but i don't use RP or IP for something i only get for a week. I spend money for things i want to have and use at a time i can choose.

I'm with everyone else, I was extremely excited for ward skins but there's no way in hell I'm spending my RP or even IP on something temporary. Seriously even if it was a year long rental I wouldn't do it. Riot I hope you rethink this because it's definitely a great and lucrative idea but you need to make them permanent. Treat them like normal skins, make them cost between 350-975 RP depending on the skin, make them permanent, and come out with some new ones every now and then.
