BTW I'm sure that the 90% of the people that wants to buy the 6 skins don't play some of these champs.
I'm sorry, but this is a open discussion and I should be able to put my opinion out there, whether you said anything or not, sir.

It is fair to make half them perm and the other half not because it's fair to take into account the entire community and not just the ones who can put 60 bucks into the game when they feel like it.

I have to agree with Shinjikuna. The entire community cannot afford to miss out on 6 skins, thats just not fair. There have been big sales before, like Christmas for example, but that goes on for a lot longer, and its a time when money is a little more available, due to gifts. Not for Halloween. I voted that Shadowisles to be a non-permanent skinset, because this a PERMANENT map, so why not make the skins the same?

We have decided to repost a simpler version of the poll to address only the question that is now inconclusive from the first poll. Should the Shadow Isle skins stay in the store after the Harrowing holiday? The skins in question are:

Headless Hecarim
Haunted Maokai
Underworld Twisted Fate

The poll will be posted on NA, EUW and EUNE and the results will be tabulated at the end of Monday.

They should be limited. It gives them a special quality down the road when you can't buy them anymore. I constantly get comments on my Pumpkinhead Fiddle because nobody sees them anymore and people enjoy it.

Ugh. I hate this community. You'd rather deprive people who can't afford to buy everything at once, for exclusivity, than to let everyone get them whenever?

I don't even get the argument. The Shadow Isles are just a set of themed of skins technically independant of Halloween or any holiday, and it is not like the Harrowing which is tied specifically to a specific time. Shadow Isles should be permanent, it is the only thing that makes sense. So screw you guys for voting like you did, so much rampant selfishness in this community.

I understand making the Harrowing skins exclusive as they are only for Halloween. The Shadow Isles however are not, and the community shouldn't be able to change that out of some ridiculously absurd desire for rarity on items that weren't originally meant to be rare and were not initially time linked.

The first two possibilities are the most likely.

To be honest Hipp, making skins only available to people with good records won't really improve the community. The people who troll intentionally, don't care about their accounts or if they get banned. I would have to assume they wouldn't care about buying a skin if they "behaved"

This makes it unfair for us who play the game a lot, but due to little or no income, miss out on not just one, two or even three new skins, but six. That's just ridiculous.
Harrowing event goes until November 13. Plenty of time.

And i bet that your wrong, for them to make 6 legacy skins at once is a bit more than the average LoL player could afford to get. I for one voted for them to be permanent as there is no reason for them to be legacy, and if they were to end up permanent i would buy them.

And on another note, why should they be legacy when they are less halloween themed than the actual harrowing skins, pirate ryze has a trick-or-treating bucket. The people saying that headless horseman is a halloween myth are also wrong, the legend has been around long before the holiday.

And one more thing, the only reason anyone wants all 6 skins to be legacy is so they can be even more elitist and have a bigger E-PEEN.

I had no idea so many people wanted to buy all 6 skins. I can see one or two, if they coincide with champs you play or you really like the skin, but 6?
