This was the logic we were given when told that we were not receiving Olympic skins any longer:

Quote:
League of Legends But now an international game - played in all the world - and this forces us to think of a more international in introducing real events in the game.
Every year, Riot releases Chinese New Year skins under the guise of "Lunar Revel." How is this an international approach?

We did have St. Patrick's day Veigar and Xmas skins.

I agree, but Riot should just fix by adding more holiday skins

Lunar New Year is still a thing in a lot of places, China is just the most common.

St. Patrick's day and Christmas are both international holidays.

TO BE FAIR, I like the quality of the chinese skins. They are often very cool looking.

ALSO, doesn't the riot company in china make these skins? Then NA Riot just transfers them over and sells them? IDK.

Riot's owned by the Chinese, and who ever told you the Olympics were not international should be tared and feathered.
