.. earlier this year I purchased red baron corki at FULL price even though it is obviously not worth that price tag if compared to other legendaries, I didn't really mind though because I like the skin and hoped for a model upgrade. Then when riot said they would not give it an upgrade I was kinda sad but then it become a legacy skin that others couldn't get, that was ok I guess.. But that wasn't even that far back and now it's going to be 50% off? Why is it legacy then? If I had known legendary skins could eventually go on sale like this I would have never purchased it.

As always, Legendaries that are currently active in the store will not go on sale.
Thanks for the explanation . Looking forward to get Red Baron Corki and a bunch of other skins of course

Is there any reason that the 2011 Snowdown Showdown skins are excluded from the list even though they're Legacy?

The skin was released 2 years ago (retired this year, but still). Considering how long it's been out, it's a decent amount of time. Otherwise you're saying you wish they'd known what they would do in the future.

Hippalus, by the fact that 2011 Christmas skins weren't included, does that means they are coming back in this Christmas?

If the sale is supposed to bring "Legacy" skins back , why are the Snowdown Showdown 2011 skins and this year's Harrowing/Shadow Isles skins not on the list? I thought those were Legacy skins too.

I'm kind of sad. There have been a handful of skins that I wanted but I've been waiting for the "75% vault", just because it'd seem they'd be likely to be vaulted and 'cause I get RP on rare occasions. One assumes that a company will follow "the usual practices" and yes, I'm aware that's an assumption, but Riot gave us no reason to expect different since Black Friday and Cyber Monday are huge.

I was hoping that you would take the 'Top 3' into at least consideration so I hope that you still do, perhaps for the future.

Will it be 10 skins plus the legacy skins, or will the legacy skins be part of the 10 skins on sale?

It's about time you make every skin ever made available for purchase indefinitely. Makes you millions and a ton of players very happy.
