I want that akali skin, but I don't have the IP for her yet. It would makes sense to buy a skin and have it unlock after you unlock that champion.

C, however I could see a lot of new players buying the skin and thinking they would get the champion and then there would be complaints up the wazoo.

..for twice the price, maybe?

Otherwise, everyone who bought the champ on their own, got ripped hard.

C. I'm not sure why they can't put a little voucher or mark on your account that auto-unlocks the skin once you've finally purchased the character. But I guess it's to encourage people to buy characters at full price and skins on sale alongside them or something.

Technically there is one.

If a skin is on sale but you don't have the champion yet but you want the skin unlocked for when you do get the champion.

However, Riot won't make that possible. I'm sure there is a cost-benefit analysis somewhere that determined that leaving the system the way it is (force you to buy the champion, hopefully with RP, to make sure you get the sale benefit) outweighs the other method, as while the other method may increase sales of the skin, I'm guessing the raw numbers don't add up.
