Do you not see the amount of extra ridiculous work you are putting yourselves through?
That is a good idea, I might just do that.

When they change the pricing structure for bundles I'll just demand I get all my money back for every champ in the bundle because I own all of them.

I will link this post and they have no leg to stand on, thus they must refund all the RP for all those champs, minus the cost of the skin and other bonuses. So I should get back around 3400 or so. Likely this should make the Goth Annie skin end up being cheaper than 975 anyways since they shot themselves in the foot.

I want skin but I dont agree with your decision. Bundles should stay as they are now. But on the other hand.... you already reduced price on "rune page bundle" for short time. So why not milk money when people calm down quite quick.

Bundles should be cheapest way to buy something, but this statement no longer stands since September 2012:
7 rune page bundle = 2600RP,
8 rune pages (on sale) = 2360RP.

on a side off-topic note...man, i haven't played sivir in ages...so bad with her now haha
Sivir is probably going to get a redesign in the near future and I'm pretty sure a similar situation is going to occur with Huntress Sivir ROFL.

Is there anyway I can speak to you outside of the chaos of these forums? Despite being extremely upset here, I'm trying to stay civil, but it's not easy with some of the stuff being slung around here.

And the method or purchase was a prepaid card.

Is this fake life or something? It still doesn't change that while you may call Riot's move to not release Goth Annie separately stupid, it's still stupid to pay for RP for something that isn't immediately available. The sale was supposed to go on until the 10th. That is more than enough time to see it in the store, buy RP, then buy it. There was no "limited copies available" or anything like that. Paying for RP now was a stupid move and no amount of finger pointing and blame will change that.

Honestly Hipp, quit being obtuse.

That was my case and why I've never bought the bundle.
http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/....php?t=3011410 I have stated from the beginning I did not buy the bundle solely for Goth Annie, but it was an incentive because as a new player Goth Annie was an exclusive skin for my then favorite AP mid, and nobody else used it, so it seemed at the time to be something to cherish and bust out every now and then in the future or whenever I felt like playing Annie. I didn't predict this would happen though.

Probably not unless they're completely insane. I think they've learned their lesson and don't want to go through all this forum rage business again.

I think the refunding thing could work. It happened with the legacy sale that occurred recently. I owned Annie in Wonderland long before I knew it'd go into the vault. Since it went on sale at a much lower price than the legendary 1820 RP that it was paid with, I received a nice refund. Was a great, unexpected surprise.
