Hey guys, I've been thinking awhile about the skin prices. I think they should be lowered. So what do you think about this?

520RP - 280RP
980RP - 580RP
1800RP - 1060RP

Discuss. I think it may be a good change. Also don't think I'm crying about current prices, I have bought 7 skins now, but still think they're kind of big.

Well, they need to make money from somewhere.
And the 50% skin sales works great for that. Lowering skins even more would MAYBE cause too much trouble.

I agree with Yougan, its not like the price for skins is overrated. The 50% sales they hand out once in a while functions fine.

Just as a point of reference, 140 RP is about 1$ depending on the amount of RP you buy.
So, you're selling like... recolors for 2$ and legendary skins for... about $7.72

The business model is bad as it is already and they're completely optional to buy.

What i don't get is the disparity in some Champ prices.

Anivia and Blitzcrank are 975Rp or 3150IP yet Brand is 975RP or 6300IP.

There are lots of other examples of similar differences.

Anivia and Blitz both used to be 6300 IP, they didn't change the RP, I guess.

There are a few examples of 975 RP 3150 IP champions, though, when the others are like ~550 iirc or something.

Personally i think the skin prices are a ****ing joke, like $20 for a skin is way overpriced but than again the game is completely free. I would only buy a 975 or 1820 rp skin if it was super sick like Primal Udyr but other than that i wait for sales or new champion packages. As people have said it is a free game and they need to make money somehow.
this place is a dump
