Hello I would like to know if it is legal to install skins and use them or if that can get me banned.

Thanks.

I wouldn't install anything, just because of the sheer amount of people saying they got banned for no reason. There was probably a 95% chance there WAS a reason... but still not worth the risk imo.

Plus I'm not 100% but their system could be picking them up as modifications.

No, you cannnot get banned for using custom skins. Under no circumstance.

it wont get you banned but it got a downside to using one. Every patch you will have to re-install LoL (kinda) XD.

It's fine, it's client side. You aren't affecting how the game functions in anyway. Even if it wasn't legal, there is no way riot would know unless they scanned the integrity of your game files every time you use the launcher, which would be silly on Riots part.

No they won't do anything to you because nobody else can see the skins iirc.

I used them once and they worked, but it just felt unethical. I stopped using them and never thought about it again.
