im about to spend too much money on stuff i dont need

on that note you should also make it so that you can purchase skins regardless of owning or not owning the champion. i have enough extra cash to spend on skins but not enough to get the champions needed for said skin as well. I would gladly buy a skin that i cant use for a couple days while i grind the IP to buy him.

Ive been waiting for a Kassadin Skin so I could support riot but this one is a simple recolor and is ugly as sin. Oh well.

I've been waiting for an Anivia skin for ages.....and I'm a bit disappointed. It's not the fact that it does indeed look like the French flag, but just that it looks like not much effort was put into it. I really want a nice skin for Anivia but I don't think something like this rushed recolor will do. -_-


EDIT: I'm really loving the TF, Twitch, Corki and Jax skin. I might look into getting one of those, but only if we're allowed to buy skins for champions we don't own. I wouldn't mind waiting a while to use them.

The Winter Games is a global event which brings countries from all over the world together in the spirit of competition and sportsmanship. In honor of this event, we are proud to introduce content that players from all countries can enjoy. We will introduce several additions to the game and store items that will be available for this limited time only (February 12 - March 2).

Champion skins: We will release eight new skins on Day 1 of the Winter Games event. These skins will be available for purchase throughout the entirety of the Winter Games celebration:
  • The Mighty Jax
  • Curling Veigar
  • Vancouver Amumu
  • Ice Toboggan Corki
  • Whistler Village Twitch
  • Team Spirit Anivia
  • Festival Kassadin
  • Union Jack Fiddlesticks

To kick off the Winter Games event, the following four skins will be available for 30% off during the opening weekend (February 12 - 14). After this sale period ends, the skins will return to their regular prices:
  • The Mighty Jax
  • Curling Veigar
  • Vancouver Amumu
  • Ice Toboggan Corki

Runes: We will release six special Winter Games runes that will only be available during this event (February 12 - March 2). Three of the runes will be Tier 1.5, and the other three will be Tier 2.5:
  • Mark of the Combatant (Tier 2.5, critical damage)
  • Lesser Mark of Alpine Alacrity (Tier 1.5, attack speed)
  • Seal of the Extreme (Tier 2.5, dodge)
  • Lesser Seal of the Medalist (Tier 1.5, health)
  • Glyph of the Soaring Slalom (Tier 2.5, cooldown reduction)
  • Lesser Glyph of the Challenger (Tier 1.5, AP per level)

Map: On the second weekend of the event, we will replace the winter map with the Winter Games map, a variant of the winter version of Summonerís Rift that includes many Winter Games elements and decorations.

As with the holiday skins and runes from our Snowdown Showdown event, you will still be able to use this content after the Winter Games event has ended, but only if you have purchased them from the Store, so be sure to grab this limited edition content while you still can. In the spirit of competition and sportsmanship of the games, we at Riot wish everyone a happy 2010 Vancouver Winter Games and we look forward to battling with you during the League of Legends 2010 Winter Games celebration!

Also, don't forget to vote for League of Legends over at MMOSite where we are nominated for three awards:

Best MMORTS
Best New MMO
Best Gameplay

If we are in the lead in at least two of the three categories for which we have been nominated by February 15, at 12 PM PST, we will be celebrating by awarding double IP for the second weekend of the Winter Games event! More Info

I think there should be a TEAM CANADA skin considering its the vancouver olympics, and you have usa colors, german colors, and others, but nothing to represent the host nation.

EDIT- Yea i realise theres a vancouver skin, but it's the OLYMPIC colors, not canada's colors.
