I wouldn't mind it being local. it adds value to the skin. I hate staring at some of the classic artwork in the bottom left, lol

I would like to stress that if we did this, the skin changes would only appear locally: You would see your skin, but everyone else would see the base one.
Then just change the announcer images (an enemy has been slain) or the stats images at the end.

Mini map icons are too small to distinguish similar skins.

Also, pretty sure LoL fans and sites will be generous to help you guys cut out the 200-300 skins

Wonderful! The reason I've always opposed this idea is that it adds a lot of annoyance to people to try and figure out who's who from little pictures that pop up for 3 seconds or so to announce kills. If it were a local only thing, I'd be happy to see it happen.

I'd still be ok with it being local.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with this line of thought, and glad to see a Red reply here as I would have got no answers in the EU forums.

I think it would be worthwhile as it rewards the player who bought a skin and give a more personal experience in the game. Skins are what keep Riot afloat, and steps should be taken to at least personalise the gaming experience for each individual.

portrait changes (even if only locally) need to happen
