This in and of itself should amend distrust in Hippalus. If people are still qq'ing after this, it's just part of the "riot is evil" shtick.

I'm not sure that you read it, but in the same quote you picked up, he said if #6 were still polling close they'd pick it up as well (they fully intend to grab two of the options anyway)

Have Riot specified why this years Harrowing event skins are considered legacy while all other events are limited edition?

If Riot simply wanted to make some extra money they'd do it in a heartbeat, but the company has integrity.

Also, consider this. 90% of you who want Limited Edition skins want them BECAUSE they're rare. If everyone had Kitty Katarina she wouldn't be nearly as alluring as she is.

Edit:

This doesn't hold true for Legacy skins since Legacy was DEFINED as skins that would be available again periodically but not available all the time. Some of the Legacy skins are the best (or in some cases, the only good) skins for that champ.

Safari Caitlyn is a good example. Only skin she has where she doesn't look like a stripper or an 80s movie communist.
FACT: Bewitching Nidalee is best nidalee skin...That is all I want

See, skins from like Pax or Championships or events I could not possibly attend to are fine to not be acquired by all since you had to make a commitment to buy a ticket and go to the event. But this is different. And if this IS true then the Limited oldies should BE moved to Legacy and be part of this sale.

And to those that say that someone shouldn't get them because they themselves couldn't at that time, I am fighting for you ^^ lol. In all seriousness, Riot should re-evaluate their stance on this.
