This was Ames' idea and I gave it the green light - neither one of us foresaw the backlash.

In general, we try to implement stuff that players will value, and most of the time we get it right (gifting, champion price changes, bonus RP/IP, legacy skins sale, etc). We also try not to implement stuff that a significant number of players will hate, and within an hour of hitting the front page news, it was clear that selling Goth Annie in the store would piss off a lot of people, so I made the call to kill it. In hindsight, I wish I'd either squashed the idea upfront or put more time into gauging the player reaction.

In the end, no one here is worse off than they were yesterday except for people who bought RP they wouldn't have bought (I'll message you in game Toad), and people who are losing sleep over this for one reason or another. To all of those people, I am indeed sorry.
I will accept this apology. Hopeful next time we can have a pre-thread about this with actual constructive criticism and input, not to make haste judgements based up and down votes.

Its not about sharing, its about Riot doing the right thing, They made a claim to an exclusive skin, therefore they should stick by their words and keep it exclusive.
Take emotion out of it

Not exclusive there is no Red ever saying it is. If you preordered, then yes, but guess waht? you can't preorder anymore, and the skin remains inthe store. Not exclusive.
