No no, sir not greed. I may have though this way initially but after truly realizing the implications of Limited and Legacy it seems Riot should open a charity. Such committments are honorable, but not for a business making money, and not at the expense of future profits from new members, as I am assuming Riot WANTS to have more and newer players coming in. Or am I wrong at this assessment? Sorry my Finance major is talking.

And the stupid this is that the players who DID buy them believe that their skin would "devalue", as if such a concept even exists in a virtual commerce, from allowing those (including myself) who were not there since LoL inception to be eligible to acquire them. These same skins will still be able to be sold for the same price, if not a bit more expensive if it is justified (here come even more profits), to ALL players. Skins are NOT like antiquities or old NEVER again reproduced goods. Because they are virtual.

Value on those skins DOES NOT increase the same way you may think it does since you are not allowed to sell them. So they may be worth a bagillion dollars but there is NO WAY for you to get that amount of money. It is just a value one places that does not give any benefit whatsoever to the owner. Just a showoff factor.

Well if that is the case. You should keep the vaulted skins vaulted for us who bought them before they retired since you want to commit to Kitty Kat Katarina and all that.

I'd be willing to take bets against that, and would love to see how 2012 Harrowing/2011 Snowdown sold as Legacy compared to the previous year's Limited, but something tells me we won't actually see the numbers to prove either way :3
