Truth be told, both sides of the argument have valid points. Fact remains, current owners of the Goth Annie skin were promised exclusivity within the bundle. On the other hand, no one in their right mind is going to dump $40 on a bundle just for a skin when most of that is going towards content most already own.
These problems have been solved in other industries before by Pro-Rating. Basically, the bundle stays a bundle no matter what, but it is sold at a discount based on content already owned. Riot has referred to "developing technology" to problem solve these bundle issues and this is what they are speaking about. Obviously they have yet to develop this technology and are feeling the backlash for it. This is the only way to solve this issue and make both sides happy because you maintain exclusivity without forcing people to pay for content they already own twice.

Things we should remember as a community, Riot spent a lot of time to bring these skins up to par FOR US. Them offering us the skin, then canceling it was an attempt to listen to their community, something most big developers just laugh off. We have it pretty good here despite what the 12 year olds might have you believe.

You could do that and then retire the bundle, but it would only act like a band-aid to the real issue.

but there was no promise of exclusivity.

Exclusive does not mean "never available elsewhere" otherwise the people who bought the hardened edition CoD would be the only ones with special maps. but they release to the public months later. for a fee.

You paid for the bundle and got a bonus, later down the road the bonus will be available but with no specialties attached. just like CoD maps

CoD maps are a bad comparison to LoL skins, especially ones that are limited edition.
