Hi guys,

Recently, I bought Sanguine Garen skin for 260 RP (Now I have 140 RP). Now I realize people start to behave differently to me. I assume it is because of my skin.

Does people with skins is more respected in higher summoner level match? (Currently I'm level 19 summoner, about to hit 20).

I also created a poll above ^.^

there's a respect until you fail.

it's a double edged sword, people expect you to be decent if you actually spent money on a skin and if you aren't their gonna get after your skin (no pun intended) for it.

Nah, skins are just kinda "I like this champ so I'ma make them look pretty.". In lower levels of play "skintimidation" has a play in enemy morale, but that's about the extent of it.

Eh, well normally when people buy skins, it usually means they have a lot of experience with the champion. o:
As for me? I just buy the skin if I like it.
I bought the Gentleman Cho'Gath skin, and when I bought Cho'Gath with IP I refused to play him until I got that skin. :L

Maybe, maybe not. Me? I only care about someone's skill. I do like skins, but I don't necessarily respect them more because of it.

Not respected, but people expect you to play well or at least decently with that champion.

Skin Wars is the first and most important battle in every game. If the load screen pops up and the enemy team wins Skin Wars like 4-1 or something you might as well just afk in fountain.

If you use a skin with your champion, you can NEVER have a bad game with that champion until you unequip the skin, or else you will likely encounter a classic, 'y u waste ur mums mony on dt skin lol u suck"

Before: Get a FIRST BLOOD!, only lanemate type "GJ" in chat.

After: Get a FIRST BLOOD!, whole team congratulates.

Enemies seems to be more focused to me after I use skins -_-.

Conclusion (?): Skins make it harder?
