I second that. It confuses me as to why this has not been the case from the get go. More skins = more money for Riot because of greater variety of choice for customers. Just do it.

But they won't because they "made a promise" to everyone having limited skins...which promise apparently they only care about until they can get away with a Garena sale because that's too far away and "stupid NA and EU won't notice anyway"
Next thing they will start selling the season one Kayle skin there too and we still won't get to buy any limited skins.

How can they not realise how much money is in limited skins now?
After champion remakes and all that money they spent remaking limited skins as well they could more than cover their expenses with even a one day sale. But that's Riot logic for you.

Were the votes REALLY that close?

1 vote difference between 1st and second?

And no response to the hundred pages of critiques, suggestions and other issues regarding this post. No wonder people in marketing get such reputations... =\

As always, Legendaries that are currently active in the store will not go on sale.
By that logic, why weren't they put on sale when they retired? It was already known that they weren't to the current legendary standard, but the price remained the same despite all other retiring skins getting a significant discount. I made my personal purchase of a retiring legendary skin based on the fact that the skin was being retired and even if it was brought back, others would still have to pay the same price I did, because the the quality of new legendary skins had already risen (Pulsefire Ez) and the price was kept the same despite that. Now I feel I would have much rather waited for this sale. :/

Are the Lunar Revel skins eligible for this sale?
