it is not worth it for lasting only a week. If you have them last forever, then yea, ill buy it for 975 rp or w/e.

It's a fun and spirited idea. I like it. I'm not the type that would even pay RP for a permanent skin so I really can't relate to the complaint that it is only temporary.

Riot:

While people are excited about the new Champ / Shadow Isles, lets make tons of bull**** things people can spend their cash on!

(Limited time ward skins)
(10,000 RP for a summoner icon)

Putting in my opinion. I was ready to buy 3 of the ward skins outright (Haunting, Tomb angel, Widow).

But not for temporarys.

If you want to see how ward skins are Received, make these permanent sales. No one wants to drop RP on temporary stuff. And most people who buy the two IP Wards will just be the people who have all the champs/runes and can blow ip without a care. This is a horrible test of the ward skin system =/ If anything THIS wave should be permanent so you can test initial reactions, then try a wave of temporary's. See a proper contrast..

But in general people are way more likely to drop RP on limited edition permanent skins then on temporary fluff, or things they can buy for years to come.

Nice idea for ward skins but they shoudn't be temperary. You could have permanent year round ward skins and permanent holiday ward skins that you can only use around the time of that holiday.

The IP ones being temporary seems fine. However, the RP ones might as well be permanent. Maybe up the price to that of a new skin or champion (975 RP) or between a champion and a legendary skin (1350) but make it permanent? I mean, I would definately purchase the options at 975 RP or 1350 RP if they were permanent, but, as a temporary, no need.

GREAT idea on the ward skins. Worst idea ever on making them temporary. I totally get temporary halloween/christmas skins - that you can only buy during a certain period, but stay usable forever. That I get. . . Making something you waste RP/IP on just to have a different 'look' for only a certain amount of time. Worst - Idea - Ever. Riot, I thought you were above being that type of company. Come on now!!

In response to you not wanting "themed" wards throughout the year.....why not? You have themed skins throughout the year. Loved using my Halloween Nocturne skin at Christmas. I only default use the Christmas LeBlanc and Maokai skins. So those are showing up all year round. Why not make these permanent and cost more? Again, can't believe your company stooped to temporary items. I've only seen a few horrible free to play games do this. You're above that, Riot!

You've permanently changed the Twisted Treeline in a way that includes a pumpkin-headed shopkeeper. He'll be there year-round, and he's obviously Halloween-themed, like ghosts and bats.
