It would probably be an awesome idea for Riot to make it possible to play the game before all of the unlock-able content is downloaded. I'd rather not wait around for 3 hours waiting for skins that I don't even own to be installed onto by computer.

The problem is that the downloadable content is going to be a small part of most patches whihc...you know...modify all the game's guts. Even if they bothered doing what you said (which would mean people that have the skins would be nulled out or whatever by your computer since you dont have them), how much time would it save? Maybe a minute or so. Woopie.
