Hi all - Just wanted to share my little story.

I am a Bronze player and I know it - I am a 35 year old guy with reflexes that aren't what they used to be. So I know Ill never be an elite player in LOL. Because lets face it - apart from the high ping we get here in Australia my reaction time isn't what it used to be.

But I love the game - Ironically for its team-play (whenever I am either lucky on Solo Q or my friends are on-line), and mainly for the fact that I can lose myself in the fun of the game for 30-60 minutes and the issues of the world disappear for a bit....

I have a real life that includes a mortgage and a long term relationship with my lady so I have real life things to juggle - I guess I am lucky with my girl as she understands that I like gaming and need a break from real life from time to time - Yet I understand that she also needs some attention paid to her each day.... its a ying / yang thing....

So what annoys the **** out of me is when playing in a Solo Q and I may not be having an awesome game someone calls me out for having a skin... what tha?

  • I buy skins because I love LOL - not because I am awesome. (my rankings will prove that)
  • I buy them for the champs that I enjoy playing not because I am the next world beater.
  • I buy them because I can afford it and don't have to be vanilla, I make good money why not spend it on something I enjoy doing?
  • I buy them to support the evil Chinese Dictators that make this game fun... Happy new year BTW.

And you know what - I'm going to keep on buying them. So just relax will you!
This game isn't always about being the best - Sometimes its as simple as playing for fun (and still trying to win) - But if you don't win - Relax there is always the next game....

This thread is not very skintimidating

Just ingore them. Mute them and hope you won't q with them again. I buy skins that I like even for champs I know I will never play. At least 1 skin per champ is my plan

I'm not sure I've ever been called out for having a skin and not playing well.

Not a fan of it.
Rugged Garen, on the other hand...

I have both and swap between the two.... I agree rugged is the best - But Steel Leigon has been getting me the 'bad' calls from fellow gamers.

The first game I played as Gatekeeper Galio someone told me I was an idiot for wasting 20.00 on a skin for a champion that wasn't even good.

I still like the skin but I do hesitate to use it, because Galio isn't that great :P
