Anyone else notice that there are some skins that actually give some (albeit minor) in-game advantages.

What immediately comes to mind:

Frosfire Annie - Actually makes it just a slightly more difficult to see the ring around her to know if her stun is up or not.

All White Ashe Skin - Annoying when playing with a Mordekaiser on either team, because during huge team battle sometimes difficult to tell if she's a ghost/pet or not.

Lochness Cho'Gath - This one I can't confirm, but some people have said Lochness Cho'gath at 6 stacks is actually larger than normal Cho'Gath. Which of course makes it easier to hide your tiny champs like Kennen/Teemo/Tristana/etc.


And of course there is always the psychological advantage in solo queue, a whole bunch of people picking random champs they may or may not main. Where as the other team has 4-5 skins, meaning these are their mains so your team may already feel slightly at a disadvantage from the start.


I'm not saying skins are OP or UP. Skins are skins. But just curious if anyone else has noticed any positive (or negative) in-game side effects regarding skins?

Never had any of these problems, it seems to me you are just blaming your losses on random ****.

I think when you see some skins for the first time (or several times after even) , you can be a little unsure what champion they actually are .


Like the first time i saw a lep veigar and hes rainbow particle's i was confused. But obviously you figure it out pretty quickly.

Iunno man. I don't see how skins can have that much effect on the game, I play the default Singed skin, look where that's got me.
