Speaking of updates, quality, etc, here's a close up version of the beauty shots GrumpyMonkey did for Annie's announcement. Been looking for an excuse to get them out there.

(I assume I will mangle their size and have to redo it)

I'm still confused though - from your previous post it made it sound like in general future champion skin VUs will be less of a priority regardless of their exclusivity status (and especially because of.)

Ultimately I applaud you handling this delicate situation so well. There was concern within the community and you addressed it.

(and even though I did by the bundle I think you had a great idea by wanting more people to be able to experience this amazing skin)

So my real questions is: What do you put on your Chili Cheese Dogs? Anything other than chili and cheese? For example I put spicy mustard and Tabasco sauce.
If you consider this massive ****storm to be handling it "well" I'd hate to see what happens when it is handled badly. Personally, I don't think it could have been handled much worse. There are some ways it could have been worse but not many, mainly things added on as larger "**** yous" to the current debacle.

Lets use your Pax example. Pax skins were designed for being there at Pax with them. Great, nice niche, the fact they're rare is fine.

Now as for Ryze? Should his skins be re-released? I don't know the history on all of them so I couldn't tell you there. But the big difference between Annie and Ryze is that Goth Annie was announced to be available for purchase...and then said offer was rescinded. IF they did the same thing with a Ryze skin I'd be on the same side of the argument I am now (though point of view here might shift depending on the intention of said skin...).
I like special things. I don't really care what people have to say on it. Back when I played WoW, I collected everything I could. My bank was 100% full of junk that I collected that was not obtainable ever again. That's just what I like to do. It means something to me even if it's just some stupid level 1 quest item that has some stupid activate for a quest that was removed. While Goth Annie isn't totally exclusive, it has higher value on it than other skins and the sudden split of her from the bundle causes her value to drop drastically. I don't have to own her to see that and to be against it.

As an owner of the Goth Annie skin myself. i personaly dont care if it were to go on sale for a limited time. i got the skin as a "bonus" of sorts while attempting to get champs to play Draft games.

i too have only never seen it used on or with anyone other then myself. and i have only used it 1 or 2 times while getting stuck with annie in Arams.

the way i see it, your just giving people a chance to pick up a skin they like. befor it go's back to its full price.

Since you work on the relaunch team, any word on Nidalee's other splash arts? Just curious.

Just chili and cheese, but the ingredients matter. Now, there's this local food truck called 'Let's be Frank' that has this thing called a Mutt Dog with Devil Plum Sauce that is just amazing. Pretty sure you can order their dogs (organic, etc) and the sauce online.

Fixed the pictures on my last post, by the way. They're jpg's now and apparently that makes the forums happy.

I don't see anyone being a dick, just defending the value of a skin they put more money than most into getting.

OK I'm officially done with you then. You are just saying **** for the sake of saying ****. The massive ****ing thread(s) that have been going on have been chock FULL of people being dicks about having exclusive skins that others cannot.

But then again, you did argue for 30 pages that an 80 year old woman purposely maimed herself for the sake of a payday, so I don't know why I am even bothering.
