I really feel RIOT is now just producing things like this to tug on our heart strings.
By telling us more time went into this than the other skins and that justifies a larger price, is frankly absurd, I agree with the tremendous amount of comments that are all saying every skin should be looked after and treated the same.and made with the same grace.
With the exception of the legendary skins,
Now here is where they are attempting to take advantage of us, Skin sales are pure PROFIT, where as champions aren't there is a reason that some champs that are worth 3150 IP are still worth 975 RP because they want every DOLLAR off you.
Anything bought with IP is not a gain for them, this is why in the last few years the IP Gains have been reduced time and time again. and winning 64 IP for 30 minutes of your time is useless when you add it up they are nearly forcing you to pay for the things you want.
Kinda why RIOT has more money than god right now, Yahoo announced that they had made their frist MILLION $$$$ off of champ sales not that long ago, thats a million in RP worth sales, SO there is ALOT.
What my gripe with them is, the lack of free to play content that is constantly being updated, we have over 105 champs now and still only 10 free champs? this is a joke, there isnt even enough there for some diversity between teams IF they were only able to pick those, look at the fact we have 100+ why cant we have more like 14-16 Champs. your roster has increased, Give more back to the people. Game updates are mandatory give us something back for our dedication.
We need for free to player friendly stuff, More champs are just the start. You should of thought of something like when you did your 100TH champ giving us all IP or RP or a free champion or something. These are large milestones that your throwing previous PR (Press Relations) Away on,
You have the potential to be seen more than a money hungry hippo right now, and I am drifting more and more to Dota, Its owned by a larger company gets updates more than once a week, and everything about it is free and avaliable, and I am not stuck joining games with champs like
Katarina and Darius on the same team and have my whole team say "GG if they get fed"
Sorry this post went sort of off topic but I figure if it is here they will read it, They really do need to understand the issues we (The Community) are facing, they are just after our wallets and at a bare minimum giving us what we need.
