Why not make unavailable skins available?

Why can't we purchase legacy/limited edition skins?

Because, summing it all up, those skins have already been tested and don't need anymore testing.
We do however get them available temporarily like what happened with Goth Annie in her recent visual rework.

Because that skin was also getting changed they had to let us buy and test it.



If you just want to look at how the skins look just go to SkinSpotlights on Youtube or try the Model Viewer in Lolking.

Yeah, basically because it wouldn't really be fair to those on live who bought the skin expecting it to only be available for a short while and then never again/rarely if ever, if everyone on PBE had free access to it.

If something comes up that makes it necessary for us to test it, then we'll get access to that one; Goth Annie is a great example.

I think they should though because pbe isnt live and the skins may have some bugs that have been missed or over looked, also they may glitch the padding on certain places around the map. Just a thought

I think that, all things considered at this point, the skins have probably gone through enough testing.

I'm sure that if Riot was still feeling iffy about the skins and whether or not they had glitches, they would make them available to the PBE just like the rest of the skins and champions.

Basically PBE is for testing, not showing off or playing with Unavailable skins.

The only thing I could see them putting Legacy skins available is VUs.

Although a new champion could possibly glitch older skins.

easy if you could they would be worth less. more people have them the less special they become

They really should open them up on champions that both have them and are getting a rework, to test out all the skins.
