What is up with this sale thing? Is riot gonna sale every single skin? Seriously i wanna know why Riot is doing this.




The same reason every business puts things on sale. It gets people to buy.

Its better to sell 2 items cheaper than to not sell one full price item at all, In addition, people that are enticed to buy are more inclined to pick up an additional item as well.

Ask you local wall mart or mcdonalds why they put items up for sale =P

Not to mention, they aren't losing ANYTHING by putting it on sale lol. They can set it to what ever price they like.

Exactly. You still have to pay the 5 bucks (at least) for the RP anyway. It works great for Riot, plus, I personally hadn't seen many skins at all until they put them on sale. I actually saw Sasquatch Nunu the other day, and it made my heart content.

This also works out great for them because some people are willing to buy the Champion that they wanted so they can get the awesome skin they wanted at a STEAL! Riot's very smart about how the average buyer's think. That's why they bundle some champs with some skins for short periods of time, such as Snow Bunny Nid and Phantom Karthus. I purchased these both simply because I wanted to get the champ, and I prefer the alt skins to the Classics. I don't know what it is, but so far, I've only seen one other person with Nid's alt art, and her stripper dance doesn't look as good in "Jane of the Jungle" attire.

I hope you enjoyed my rant about this. Didn't expect my post to be this long. but whatevs.
<3 you, Riot

For the people who didn't read the title or the first post, wait until this weekend before you buy the skin.
