Skins are too pricey

3-8$ IS pricey for a recolor. Whether you can pay or not for it is irrelevant (EDIT requested by People Who Cannot Read)

I never actually looked at skins before this Ashe skin announcement.

I am appalled, horrified and backstabbed by the draconian prices for the skins. I understand that Riot has to support itself financially, but in all excuses, who the hell pays almost 10 bucks for a palette swap? And I could buy IP boosts instead of paying 520 Riot Points for yet another pointless skin.

I honestly think the skins price should be lowered by a notch.

I don't really understand why some are more expensive than the others, especially when Twitch is already expensive as far as champion prices go.

That being said, buy the cheap ones. I <3 my Sasquatch Nunu!

I got flamed when I made this thread last time.

Gl/wthat.

I agree though.

There are a couple of threads on this, so welcome to the party...
If you feel skins are not worth the price, then don't buy them. Voice your opinion by not spending your money.

I bought the Collector's Pack and the Champion's Bundle and you tell me to not buy the skins if I feel they are too pricey?

I think I have somewhat a right to complain here! Those skins would probably sell better if they didn't cost so much.

Didn't say you didn't have a right to complain. I just said that rather than making another thread, convince your friends not to buy the skins. Obviously Riot is making enough skin sales to justify the price, the only one they are discounting is the Ashe skin, and only for 24 hours.

I just hope the holiday skins aren't something like $15, considering they're much higher quality than the ones we currently have available. I really would like to buy all these new skins coming out, but at the same time I'd have to be either extremely rich or extremely stupid.

That's like selling an object twice the price then selling it the original price and saying it's a discount.

Stores often have markups on items, and then discount it in order to drive sales. Its how most retail stores work.
