Hah, legendary status?

Well yeah, I'm damn sure not buying it then, not now not ever. I buy skins when they go on sale only.

Why the hell is a single SIMPLE skin as much as nearly the whole bundle? bad move riot.. I bet nothing will come of it, they know you kids will buy things at any price so now expect everything to go up. Why are they so greedy? Its a free game yeah but I like to buy skins, dont think I will be reupping on RP if they continue with these prices

Same here actually.

I can understand why the price is so high, but honestly, Riot shouldn't be releasing a Legendary as a champ's first and ONLY skin.

I bought it with the bundle which is a bigger sale than normal 975 skins. How is this going to test the waters? Seems like they made an amazing skin and want people to have it at a sale price. Its is fair warning and after that the price goes up. Take it or leave it. If people do not buy it at 1350 then there is a discussion, but until then they are giving you better quality at a greater savings. This seems legit to me

This isn't some off the wall theory, this is a standard business practice. Its honestly Business 101. If you have a popular product you keep upping the price until demand plateaus. Why do you think all new champs are now 6300 IP/ 975 RP? Because they know we'll still buy them at that price. I'd be willing to be that sometime in the next year they'll release a new champ at a higher RP price point, just to test the waters again.

Its just business. We get to decide at which price point we like our skins. If we, as players, buy this skin in sufficient numbers, this new price point will definitely become the norm.

Exactly. Hell, for this reason alone, I'm actually reversing my stance on wanting a new Udyr skin, just because I'm worried they'll pull the same **** with it that they have here (oh, well, this game mechanic means the skin involves more, so 1350!), and I've lobbied for it for a long ass time now.
