Riot made this to get our money. Asking for better justification for OUR money is NOT acting entitled!

They. Spent. A. Champion's. Worth. Of. Animation. Time. On. It.

That's only generally done in legendary skins. Saying that's not justification is a colossal statement of ignorance to how much work it took to make the skin, and a display of entitlement that you should just keep getting more and more at the same price point.

i enjoy riot making new skins now and then, but i dislike it that they don't make skins for older champions...
When are we gonna see a new skin for Fizz? How about Yorick? LeBlanc?
Keep up the good work Riot, but don't forget about the other champions.

No offense.... but the work put into it is irrelevant. Only what they present to us as a final product is all that really matters to us and our hard earned money.

You realize this SKIN is $15? That's half the price of a mobile GAME. 1/3 of the price of a full console game! The same price as some VERY good PC games on Steam! Do you Really think this skin took more work than those GAMES?

I'm sorry for my typed tone. I really do feel I'm a reasonable guy.

But the "work" put into this really is just irrelevant and the final product is not worth $5 extra a pop IMHO.

If the community says otherwise. Fine. But me choosing another opinion with my wallet does not make me "entitled".

These are both pretty bland skins imo, and just because lulu's pix looks different doesn't make it worth 1350 rp....

looks like the community has spoken.

League players mindset so entitled, it kinda makes me sick.

They only just started new animations and particles back when draven's skin was released.

And now they ***** and moan when a skin doesn't have enough new particles and animations when they said it took as much time to make it for pix as a new champion skin?

You dumbasses realize lulu and pix are pretty much 2 champion's worth of work to make a skin for, right?


Stay classy, players

It seem after past observation of successful 3k pulze fire ezreal due to fanboys demand. (I mean serious, which stupid fanboy willing to pay 30 buck for a skin)

But it worked!

Riot got greedy and raise the bar. Well Riot, you not gonna see that 13 buck from me. Go to hell.

PS: you lucky to receive 9 buck from me, 13 you pushing it.

So if they spun up some elaborate story or something that made you think a skin was worth 20 bucks, even if it didn't get any more actual effort, you would buy it?

How does this make any sense?

*sigh* Way to take one sentence out of context.

Worth is subjective. Clearly the work they put into this skin specifically is of value to you personally.

I don't. I only look at what I'M giving up for what I'M getting. Just like Riot will have to look at what resources they are giving up for what they are getting.

This isn't it for me.

If it is for you....great! Have fun! I hope you enjoy!

My gripe is that you have NO right call me entitled because I don't.

It. Doesn't. ****ing. Matter. You. Idiot.

Legendary skins aren't even worth the price tag on them. When I can buy full indie games that are incredibly fleshed out, entertaining and have great replay value for the same price as a single League skin you know there's a problem.

They took the logic of, "Oh, our old skins were just recolors so in making better skins we need to raise the price", instead of the more reasonable and warranted stance of, "Oh, our old skins were terrible and amateur, we should lower their price and put in more reasonable prices for future, good skins". In all actuality them gouging skins to such stupid (Yes, stupid) levels of cost is actually more likely hurting their overall net income per skin made than helping it (As nearly not as many people are buying them) and they are alienating their fanbase at the same time doing it.

People need to stop giving Riot so much slack. Their pricing/economic system of everything they do is dangerous and irresponsible to consumers in general.

The Tribunal is a way of them saving money, because they are too cheap to dedicate funds to a proper moderation and costumer service department to handle bans. There's a reason other games haven't used such a system, and it isn't because they didn't think of it before, it's because it's incredibly unethical.
Forum moderation took forever to happen period, anyone who was here from the beginning knows what I mean. People made threads that had pornography in the OP that stayed up for weeks. Because Riot did literally zero moderation. When they finally do add a system it's just a simple upvote/downvote system and it would take a ridiculous amount of effort to get banned from the forums.

If you want to play Ranked in League and be a good teammate you'll likely have 5-6 Rune Pages full of diversified runes as well as a good Champion pool on top of having to be level 30. I've level'd to make level in many an MMO and geared up (including in Koreans MMO) than the time it takes to hit level 30 in League alone without getting that extra padding of Champs, Runes, Rune Pages. On top of that Champions are getting added much more quickly than they are getting discounted. What does this mean? The cost to actually become relevant is exponentially rising and it nearly forces you to spend money on the game if you haven't had an account since beta and actually have a job/real life.

The one and only reason Riot gets away with these practices is because they are in a market (MOBA) of low competition. One can hope Riot gets their **** together, but I'm not holding my breath.
