So Riot is now releasing these LE Portraits for the "Limited Skins." I wounder why they're doing this, everyone should know that these were limited skins to begin with right?

I picked up a couple of quotes from both Ymir and Hippalus.

Ymir saying they're steering clear from Limited skins now.

And with Hippalus saying this about rewarding people who get the skin first time it's released.

I believe Riot is bringing back Limited Skins by giving the first time owners Limited Edition portraits showing they bought them during the first time being released. I for one think this is cool, but what are your thoughts on this theory?

I'm good with this.

Halloween is my favorite holiday and I would insta-buy all of these skins even if I don't play the champs.

OMG YES! if they are re-releasing them i'll be so damn happy. Best way to distract the players from Ahri's unwarranted nerfs

Does this mean that I'll be able to have Championship Riven without sawing off an arm and leg? ;~;

Giving the original purchasers some kind of marking on their limited skin icons seems like a sensible compromise. They still get to show off the fact that they bought them originally, while millions of newer players can then get a chance at getting those skins too.

I have it, but seeing that original owners will get portraits to show. I don't care anymore about people having championship riven if purchasable during S4 Finals.

That's why I like this idea. Hopefully a Rioter responds to this.
