Yes it means that person has more knowledge on that current champ, of course there are exceptions but the majority who have skins for a champ play better then those with orignal.

If you buy a skin you probably at least like playing the character so you could very well be better with that character over another.

Really I think the real issue is I don't immediately recognize which champ that is with a skin over the normal one. Course in about 15 seconds that kinda goes out the window.

Skins always mean wins, proven fact of life.

My initial thought is usually "oh, this guy has a skin, he must know this champ", but after 1,000 or so games I really can't see any difference in skill level.

I honestly feel like it depends on the skin. Some skins seem to attract terrible players. But then, some skins dominate. Frostfire Annie always wrecks my team when I play against one, while any Darius with a skin seem to be the only Darius' I can stomp in without picking Riven.

Yeah, I tend to play much more cautiously if the enemy team has skins then if they didn't. Something about it makes me wonder why people would spend money on a champ they don't play, and it makes me scared ;-;
