And those who say we're "ungreatful because she got a visual update" umm that has nothing to do with the fact that we paid for it for the exclusive part. Unless Riot surveys everyone who paid for the collectors pack and get's their opinon on if the skin should go in the store or not this shouldn't even be a discussion.

Oh and also, If it was the other way around you guys know you would be defending it. Why should you have to pay less for something because of a visual update? I'm selfish for saying it's unfair for Riot to release an "exclusive" skin at a lower price because of a visual update?

If I'm selfish for defending my opinion you're just as selfish for thinking you're entitled to the skin because of a visual update as well.
And by that same logic no skins should ever go onsale because I paid full price for heartseeker vayne and everyone else has to! That's just selfish. If something is discounted and you paid top dollar, then be happy with a small compensation and let other people buy it.

Not just customers who bought said exclusive item either, but MANY customers overall through word of mouth. Because if your business cannot even keep good to it's own word, why would anyone want to purchase anything through you?
So you're quitting?

Can I have your stuff?

Heart seeker Vayne isn't "Exclusive" though... so you can't say that lol?

If a product is being advertised as "exclusive" I expect it to be exclusive.... Lol what do you not understand? I'm not trying to sound rude it's just very one sided how people are thinking about the situation. If I didn't own the skin and I found out Riot was releasing it my first thought would be "Wow that sucks for the people who bought it and that's messed up, but yay a skin."

Even if I did quit, I couldn't give you anything anyway. And where in this post does it say anything about me quitting anything?

Thats how you lose money/customers. In the long run... not the quarter.
But it still is exclusive....

Skin was never categorized as legacy or limited edition in the first place. NOWHERE does the bundle say that Goth Annie is exclusive to this bundle. Only skins that fit this description are the pre-order Black Alistar and Human Ryze.

Skin was only going to be sold for a limited amount of time. I don't understand why you anti-sell people don't understand this. Do we need to drill this into your brain.

Just to reiterate... you're making my point for me.

They said it would be exclusive to the bundle.

Putting it for normal sale is not keeping their word.

How do you not understand that?

Goth Annie is not exclusive. You can buy it even now.

Exclusive would be Kitty kat, Striker ez (whatever it's called).

to say it's exclusive because of a 3.9k pricetag is like called PFE exclusive.

If exclusive == money grubbing over priced items. then yes, it's exclusive.

Riot really needs to rework the bundle system asap...

One thing that irks me...is that the vocal minority disapproved of the skin. However, there's another majority that disapproves of you guys going back on your word. And you know what? I bet the major majority would LOVE this skin to be on sale.
