I own Silver Kayle, Human Ryze, King Rammus, legacy legendaries, and other skins which can no longer be obtained.

If/when they go back on sale, have at it...seeing someone else with a skin I own makes me feel awesome.

The ONLY exception is specific event skins (King Rammus, Season 2 Riven, etc.) which are given for very specific purposes; that are not "obtainable" in any way shape or form, and never were in the store to be bought in any capacity. Those are exclusive, the rest are just for people who started late, or didn't want to fork out $50 for essentially a cosmetic change when they owned most of the bundle.

I purchased 2 bundles, and some champs overlapped, I got that, but I purchased them because the savings in RP/IP from the massive number of champs I got was the best deal. I didn't cry like a whiner that I had to overlap some champs. And the skins are "meh" (Silver Kayle/Human Ryze both suck pretty bad). Whereas, if Kayle got a visual update, or Ryze or Alistar, etc. then I think all the skins for those champs should go on sale for X days giving new players, etc. a chance to get them because they are now COMPLETELY NEW.

The problem with this argument is that most of us aren't sad little people who need to feel special by owning a rare skin. I wouldn't mind in the least if this happened to me.

Not only that, but if what others are saying is true (about Goth Annie being "exclusive") then Riot actually broke their word on two counts. That's totally unacceptable and they've ****ed over both parties.

How about you take the fair road and do the same thing with Sivir's Huntress skin. I already own all the champs in that bundle, why should I have to pay that extreme amount just for her skin?

Either way I'm pretty sure they know they screwed up pretty badly, because now the entire forum is upset instead of just half or less of us. But I think we can be upset with them nicely or passive aggressively instead of openly berating them.
I haven't berated anyone here, I've been completely civil this entire time.

You bought RP before it was released? That is no ones fault but your own. You can't even begin to blame Riot for that.

If this hadn't turned into a ridiculous ****storm, I'm sure they would have when Sivir gets her visual update.

I promise, one day you won't be a complete childish moron.


Damn, I broke that promise already.
