This is the ONLY part that matters. They did NOT spend 3900RP for A SKIN,
they spent 3900RP for A BONUS skin, some runes and a BUNCH of champs, thus giving them the skin for UNDER the new proposed 975RP..

NO skins should be locked into the bundle because for the majority. That bundle is a waste. I own every single champ and over 90skins. Non of which happen to be Goth Annie. I still have no intentions on buying Goth Annie for that matter.


HOWEVER you said it was going to be released, so release it, and let the crybabies cry. Simple as that. Want to make an even better/smarter choice? Those skins attached to bundles still, REMOVE them from the bundle, replace them with either RP or IP, and put those skins in the store FOR GOOD!

I would be quite content to have Human Ryze and Silver Kayle for sale in the store (when they get a visual update) as I own both.

Exclusive. If they put Kitty Kat Katarina on sale tomorrow to celebrate season 3 and you owned her you would be outraged because you were promised it was a limited skin. Goth Annie might not be limited edition, but she's far from normal, she's exclusive.

Can make a smurf for forums. Its better to do what is right than what is popular. Child porn on these forums is just sick.

I think a lot of people need to get this through their heads... Many, and I mean MANY, people literally bought the bundle JUST for the skin. I owned almost all the champions (i didn't want the only one it would give me) and had no need for the runes. It is downright not fair to us who spent so much for an exclusive skin to have our promised product be turned into something it isn't. However, like I said, if Riot wants to make it no longer exclusive then allow all of us our RP back from no longer having the product they claimed we would have.
Bull****. No one except the dumbest of the dumb would spend THAT kind of money for a crappy recolor. But now that it actually looks good, MAGICALLY EVERYONE bought it JUST for the skin. What a load of ****. If anyone actually believes any idiot that posts this drek, I have some oceanfront property in Ohio I can sell you cheap.

Actually, it looks like Human Ryze, Shiny Kayle, Aborigine Sivir, and Blacklistar are the ones labeled as exclusive if any are, mostly Ali and Sivir. I don't see where Goth Annie is pointed out as being exclusive, even to the bundle.

I mean, I could just be derping hard, but it seems like that skin is pretty clearly non-exclusive. If that's the case, then she should be put on sale because that's what people want.

If I AM derping, and she IS labeled as exclusive to the bundle, even if that's only on the forums, then she should remain exclusive to the bundle. Putting the bundle on sale might work, or reworking the bundle maybe, but players who want exclusive items for their exclusivity should be respected. I'd hate to see any of the locked skins I own suddenly come back. Hell, that's why I got a refund on Snowmerdinger; he was a non-exclusive in that first batch of "sounds like exclusive but really doesn't mean much".

Will there be limited skins made in the future? Or is that a dated concept?

I bought Festive Maokai for SS11. He was put on sale for SS12. Wasn't mad. I was more mad that they didn't make Gingerbread Singed.

O-o... I'm not sure what you don't believe. That "crappy recolor" got me more comments than any other skin I have ever had (including Coporate Mundo). It was exclusive, interesting and odd; it is as simple as that. Back when I enjoyed playing APC, it was the only skin I would use and gave me a few months of solid enjoyment.

You're still respecting that people need to buy it, but it doesn't make sense to pay for copies of champions that you can't use.
