Why are there no more "fun" champion skins released?

This is a problem i've been having recently. I rarely buy skins, that's a fact. But there's also the fact that every skin that I'm willing to buy, has to be a fun/funny skin.

What I mean is, I know pretty much every new skin released are like, super badass looking, with extremely cheesy names like "Steel legion", "Battlecast", etc. These skins, are what I call "cool" skins.

Usually what I'm looking for, are "fun" skins, for example: surprise party fiddlesticks, Surgeon Shen, Surfer singed, to name a few. I really like those skins, the type that takes your champion and puts them outside of their normal comfort zone, changing them in crazy ways, that are more for the amusement part than being badass.

I liked the fisherman jax skin, where you use a fishing pole instead of your lamp post, or big bad warwick, with his pink grandma's outfit.

On the other hand, I don't care much about "Steel legion garen". It doesn't change him, it just makes him look "cooler". His sword is still a sword, but different. His armor is still an armor, but different.


I'm just saying, I wish there were more of those "fun" skins, I'd definitely get my hands on them, if I play the champion of course.

Debonair Jayce? Dragon Tamer Lulu? Pool Party Ziggs? Arcade Sona? Releases go a bit farther back but they've still been coming steady.

One of the more recent skin releases was Dragon Trainer Lulu. Isn't that cute?

They have to balance what style of skins they release, and I think the majority of people are after "cool" skins. Therefore they have to release those as well.

Dragon trainer is ok, but not THAT fun when you think about it, I mean it's more of a cool looking skin to me.

Pool party ziggs though I have to agree, but hey that was almost half a year ago
