I love to make ppl happy ^^. If I was at Riot with the power to make the big decisions about what to sell at what price I would abolish anything that prevents my customers from buying, and by extension giving me money, a product they want and would fire the individual who suggested it. Among my hardest attempt at removing bias towards or against certain champs/archetypes.

Riot made a commitment years ago to the players that bought them that it would not create additional copies of Kitty Kat Katarina and other Limited Edition skins. We would obviously love to sell them to new players, but despite what you might hear frequently in GD, greed does not drive decisions at Riot.

To all you people saying rerelease Kitty Kat Katarina.
You need to understand.
Riot made a commitment to the players that they would not open up that skin for buying again.
They can't sell that skin without making the current owners of that skin unhappy.
I'm all for them rereleasing some of the older limited edition skins. I'd pay an arm and a leg for Silent Night Sona. But limited edition means limited edition

But that would be unfair to older buyers They bought the skin under the impression it would not return ever. Which is a shame, because skins like Kitty Cat, Definitely Not Blitzcrank and others are fantastic. But they can't break the promise made without the original players agreeing.


Well, back to topic, can't you do all? Like, one big super sale?
Or at least bring back some old legacy skins, retire some older skins and have a big sale for newer skins? With these three options, you would make a lot of players happy

Can someone explain why legacy are never to be seen again same as Limited (which is a COMPLETE loss of profits)?
Retiring skins makes them rarer, which increases their value, which increases sales short-term. I also guarentee the holiday skins sell way more than they would have if they weren't limited edition ...
