Size:  4.1 KB With only 7 champions released, and skins coming further apart than ever, we haven't satisfied the playerbase. Not only that, but with so much of our money going into e-sports and less on skins and champions, we're not making nearly as much revenue as we could."

Size:  25.4 KB I've got it! Since we can't produce any actual new and creative content to generate revenue, why don't we bring back all those limited edition skins? That way we'll have pseudo-new content, and a ton of free cash!

Size:  26.6 KB B-b-b-but... we promised those would never come back. The skins aren't even particularly good, they're only used to show off that you're a veteran player and have played the game for a long time. I think that we should keep our promise to our playerbase and let them keep their limited edition skins. After all, that's what makes them special.

Size:  25.4 KB No, man. We need money and we need it fast. Let's just bring them back and sell them at full price. People will buy a ton and we won't have to do any actual work.

Size:  4.1 KB Don't we have to compensate the people who spent money on these skins when we promised they would be limited?

Size:  25.4 KB Yeah, you're right. Let's give them back their RP, give them a watermark on their splash art, and I'll go get my 3 yr old nephew to create a summoner icon for them, regardless of which or how many LE skins they own. After all, they'll probably just use the RP they're getting back to buy one of the skins they shouldn't have access to anyway.

Size:  4.1 KB We may just be able to pull this off. I'll make it look like we're doing this to satisfy the 2 e-mails we get every day from donger players asking for Snowmerdinger.

You forgot the part where Hippaula$ "accidentally" sets Kitty Katarina to 1350RP for few days

Apparently, Morello is concerned about the business end of the company, even though he is on the design part of it.
