total ****ing ********. i told you ****ers not to buy mecha khazix or dragon lulu.

now they know people will buy 1350 skins. thanks a lot.

riot isn't getting another dime from me.


Quoted:

An issue we're trying to fix is that players who buy Surprise Party Fiddlesticks and other premium skins are often disappointed now when they buy other 975 skins. By aligning the price to the production quality, we give players much more consistent value.

The opportunity to buy Surprise Party Fids (and other 1350s) at 975 was an extra value to players and will continue to be so for the next two weeks. We will continue to do things like that to reward players who were active at the time a premium skin is released.



Quoted:
18 skins moving from 975 to 1350:

Sad Robot Amumu
iBlitzcrank
Soul Reaver Draven
Surprise Party Fiddlesticks
Steel Legion Garen
Frostblade Irelia
Warring Kingdoms Jarvan IV
Full Metal Jayce
Glacial Malphite
Blackthorn Morgana
Astronaut Nautilus
Arcade Sona
Tyrant Swain
Battlecast Urgot
Scorched Earth Xerath
Warring Kingdoms Xin Zhao
Pool Party Ziggs
Wildfire Zyra


none of these are worth 1350.

ahhh yes the works of a company that has gotten big enough fan base to increase costs. to be honest I am surprised it has taken them this long to start doing this...i would expect more in the future.

I already own half the skins that are turning 1350 :p

Also, no point in crying over it. Riot feels those skins had more work put into them than the average skin (they did) so they are adjusting the price. Anyone who already bought the skin isn't being charged anything extra. Not to mention many skins have been reduced in price because they are aging. I don't see the problem. Riot isn't forcing you to buy these skins at a higher price.

They are even refunding people for the previously legendary Teemo, Kog'Maw and Blitzcrank skins.

Stop making Riot out to be a devil company.

not saying they are a devil company...just saying that they are going to start increasing prices on stuff and that i was surprised it took them this long. either way doesn't matter to me because i don't feel like the skins are worth even close to as much as they charge but that is my own opinion. there are far worse companies and far worse free2play games that is for sure.

i don't know about you but i have NEVER seen ea raise the price of anything. while yeah its ******** how much they're asking for they never raise it.


raising the price on a digital product is not how you make customers, its how you lose them.

All this hate.
I didn't expect that. They are reducing the price on 79 skins and increasing it on 18 very well made skins that already had that above normal skins / near legendary status in the community. On top of that they come out with this about 2 weeks in advance to tell the people:
" Look we know some of you might though about picking them up and we gone just make them cost as much as we put effort into them here is a chance to grab them cheap."

So what exactly are people hating one. That riot want to charege stuff for whats its worth ( because Araced Sona is for sure not near the other skins some serious effort was put into that thing) or that they tell the people in adavance?
I mean sure if you bought the skins in the past you might feel a bit bitter now. But then again people tend to forget that owned those skins for quite some time now. It is like buying a car and getting mad the producer when he reduces the price.
Also for those who recently picked up skins. It is not like Riot has an history of ditching people when they change stuf like this.

Because chopping down poorly made stuff you didn't put any extra effort in and chargeing that extra is way better. If I would get a penny for every DLC EA brings out I would be a pretty rich student.

Let me ask some questions; do skins affect your ability to play? No. The game is free and you can enjoy everything the game has to offer without paying actual money.

Do you have to buy skins? No. Riot does not force you do buy skins to enjoy their game.

Next question? How much is a skin worth to you? If those skins don't match your idea of worth, then simply don't buy them. Don't trash Riot for deciding something they made is worth more than what it was when they released it.


I made the EA comparison because you DO have to pay for their games, and often DO have to buy other things for the games to enjoy them to their fullest. AND those games are often plagued with problems.

Riot is one of the better gaming companies if you ask me.
