You guys are adorable. "Someone's making money besides us! Quick! Cuncel da game!" At least act like adults and say honestly that it's because you don't want third parties taking advantage of your product. I'd respect that a hell of a lot more, because that's what your real problem here is.

and this was never announced, and any day, it was today. There was skin shop a long time ago, and it was getting popular and i see people buy skins often so i gave it a shot. But this, just came out of blue. Disabling all the skin codes


In the terms of service that you agreed to upon installing the League client, there is a clause stating that Riot is not responsible for any issues that emerge from interactions with 3rd parties. This is why none of the client mods like Curse Voice have ever been approved by Riot. 3rd party skin shops work the same way. Riot does not endorse any of these 3rd party skin shops, but they can't do anything about it because people have the right to resell on their own terms. If Riot decides they want to shut down this 3rd party market, Riot has all the right to do so because these skins are their product, so they should have the right to decide how it is distributed. Your issue is with the seller, not Riot, because you took a risk with a 3rd party.


And for everyone else who's salty over the decision, get over yourselves. Technically, Riot doesn't even have to justify the move, so the fact that they are saying it is an anti-scam mechanism (which is a very legitimate reason) is say far more than what we deserve to know.

Your explanation is utter **** and here's why: If you're concerned about players getting scammed on codes, then why are you cancelling the codes? Purchasers are even more likely to get screwed over now if there are "legitimate" skin shops, and they now have to pack up their formerly sortakinda "honest" business.

If anything your reaction increases the likelihood of fraud being perpetrated.

There is no such thing as a "legitimate" skin shop. Your argument is invalid.

Of course there is. There are people out there selling legitimate Pax Jax codes, brick and mortar copies of league, etc. That will no longer be able to be redeemed. There are obviously frauds as well, but this is a convenient way of clearing out previous responsibilities to their customers and ensuring that no third party is making money off their product.

I don't think you understand. Riot does not endorse the 3rd party sale of skins. Therefore, there are no such things as legitimate skin shops.

there is always the places that dont scam, why doesnt riot make a skin shop??? its extra income for riot and the player/ consumer will always have their way and choice in skins at reasonable prices...
