Plan for vintage Limited Edition skins
BY UDYR




Hey summoners,

For the past year, we’ve been exploring ways to solve a conundrum with Limited Edition skins. Here’s the crux of the issue:

  • During events from December 2009 through October 2011, we released 34 skins for a limited time and communicated they wouldn’t come back into the store.
  • Since then, our playerbase has grown so much that these skins are virtually never seen in game
  • Every day we receive heartfelt emails with compelling stories from players asking for the chance to own or gift their favorite skin, either because they missed the brief store window due to travel, illness, deployment, etc., or because they hadn’t joined the LoL community yet.

We think it’s important to solve this, especially since we believe skins are primarily about self-expression and fun, not exclusivity. We’ve evaluated solutions such as a trading auction or achievement system, but each has significant negatives. We also feel that, while it’s important we solve this problem for the majority of players, it’s equally important that we preserve value for those who do own these skins.

Taking all that into account, we decided on the following solution:

  • The 34 Limited Edition skins will become available for purchase or gifting for a limited time during the following months:
  • Harrowing 2010 & 2011 skins during October 2013
  • Snowdown Showdown 2009 & 2010 skins during December 2013
  • Winter Games 2010 skins during February 2014
  • World Cup 2010 skins during June 2014
  • Given the reduction in exclusivity, we will be providing the following compensation to the original owners of these skins:
  • RP equal to the price they paid for the skin
  • Vintage treatment in the loading screen whenever they use the skin


  • Original Limited Edition skin owners will receive this exclusive summoner icon:

  • Going forward these 34 skins will be considered Legacy skins, and may on rare occasion also come back for future events without additional compensation


Please note these changes don’t have any effect on:

Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

If I was an owner of one of these skins, I'd be extremely annoyed. Hell, I'm annoyed myself.
These people were around for the skins. They've earned the right by playing from the beginning. Now? Hundreds of thousands of these skins will be sold and they'll be popping up 1-2 every single game. You will no longer stand out, and be able to show off your skin.

"Vintage treatment in the loading screen whenever they use the skin"
All I see are some weird stripes on the Blitz splash now.

Eh, still gonna get Candy Cane MF and Haunting Noct regardless.
