aesthetic reasoning. may not like how the base guy looks like, so you buy a skin you like to look at. etc. customization.

Similar to making a female char on a game, you don't want to stare at a dude for 12+ hours at a time do you? Unless, you know, you like that sort of thing. So why not buy something to cover up an ugly champ.

lol@ people pretending they're just buying RP to support riot. this isn't a charity. you buy skins to make you look unique in game like everybody else.

uniqueness makes people feel special, and status is important to people.

this isn't dressup.. why are people buying skins i dont get it, it doesnt make u a better player. Someone please enlighten me.


I buy them because they look cool, i don't want my favorite champion to look like everyone else who may happen to be playing it because its free week, but most importantly and already mentioned i buy the skins to support Riot this is a game i would have payed a small monthly fee to play and i like the option to pay them how i see and get some reward for doing so! they really are a great company.

Lol. a bit of in game art isn't worth $5. The service riot provides is.
