No, I don't approve of this move.

Ward skins are a genius idea. Making them temporary is borderline retarded.

If Pumpkinhead Fiddlesticks was a temporary skin, NOBODY would have bought it.
This is the same thing, we don't want to rent **** in LoL, especially for RP.

And your sales aren't even likely to pay for the development time of the ward skins because of this, and so you won't make permanent ones because "It isn't worth the time to make something nobody wants to buy".

Please, fix this atrocity, be smarter than this.

I really was excited about this. Then i read TEMPORARY and I was like ummm no =(
So I honestly doubt I will be buying any even though I loved the fallen angel ish one. Ill grab some if there is a permament option though, because this is honestly something interesting to add skins to.

I want to say that it's unfair to assume the community is this dense, but I'm sure you must be going off of some sort of data. Regardless, from reading through this thread, a simpleton could realize that the real money would be from permanent ward skins at a reasonable price.

The community loves the idea, as do I, but the same people with the adequate disposable income to constantly spend money on these cosmetic items are the people that are smart enough to know when they're spending too much for little gain. I will not pay any amount of RP for temporary skins of any sort, and I certainly hope the majority of the community sticks with their attitude towards it so as to not enable this sort of blatant attack on our intelligence.
The IP ones will sell primarily to the people who have all the champions. Personally I'd rather save for a new champ then a week of a ghost ward.

Past that yea, i really don't think the RP ones will sell much if at all. I just hope they realize this is due to the temporary ness rather then the price/idea.

this would have been great, if they werent rentals. it just seems like some cheap ploy to squeeze us harder. why are they doing this?? all the comments, it's clearly nearly unanimous: rental skins is a plainly dumb idea; permanent skins for wards is a great idea, how they get so close and miss so far... I dont understand.

Catch 22.

I'm not interested in permanently spending IP on a temporary feature.

I'm sure it will see moderate success because it's a cool idea, but a lot of people who realize that it's temporary will skip over it BECAUSE it's temporary.

Deeply disappointed by how you're doing this, Riot. If they functioned like a Champion skin and were priced accordingly, they might be worthwhile, but this is just sad. I sincerely hope no one buys them as they are now.

Temporary? Why?
