The problem here is I love the concept. But I hate, emphasis, HATE, the implementation. The rental format is incredibly stupid, name another instance in which you can spend RP on something you only have for a short period of time. You can't, and don't mention the IP/XP boosts because the IP/XP earned from the boosts is the permanent thing you're really trying to buy.
I'm afraid you're going to learn something here, and it's not what you're trying to learn. If you sell something that a person will never truly own, they won't buy it. I want to buy ward skins, I really do, but I can tell you, I won't spend a single RP on these Harrowing ward themes due to your poor implementation.
