wait wait wait...Wildfire Zyra is going up in price? please tell me they fixed the plant targeting glitch with the skin or this is a huge slap in the face

also say goodbye to 975RP skins for new champs, they will all be 1350 from now on, people think "oh they are doing us a favor by lowering some of the skin prices" no no no, thats to distract you from they price raise for all future skins

Raising price on already released skins.

Really cool, Riot.



Also lowering prices on already released skins.

Great Idea Riot.


The former is also an unarguably stupid business practice, it's why nobody else really does it.

I don't agree with this since alot of the new higher priced skins do not even have new recall animations.

I love how in this post Hippalus says 1350 won't be a new price tier for skins in general:

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?p=29677864#29677864


And yet...here we are.


Um... 7-15% of skins this year being 1350 doesn't sound like "in general".

1) You're paranoid as hell for no reason. Riot isn't out to get you, unless you want to pay for the skins.

2) Re-read the article. 75% of skins this year will be 975. That's still the go-to price for new skins. They aren't distracting anyone, and they're not raising the price of all future skins.

3) If people will pay 1350 RP for skins, then they will make 1350 skins. If people do not want 1350 RP skins, they wouldn't have sold well enough to make Riot think this is a bad idea. It's like the DLC complaint - if it was actually a problem, people wouldn't pay for it and thus it wouldn't be a continued practice.

and remove it again because it is offensive to crybabies.

The skins are just taking the same approach as champ, older skin get price drop while newer 'basic' skin with good quality gets a UP to separate the tier.

you know that when the community votes an admin's comment about a price update down to -600, a bloody boycott is coming...

well Riot, looks like community is gonna make your name a reality come the 25th.

It hasn't happened the last hundred times, so this shouldn't be any different.

Hey all,

So we made a mistake with Surprise Party Fiddlesticks where we didnít take into account our previous promises Ė for that we apologize and weíve decided not to increase the price of Surprise Party Fiddlesticks. He will remain permanently (for real this time) on sale for 975 RP.

The rest of the changes will proceed as scheduled. Here are my thoughts:

These changes are about providing more transparency and fairness in how skins are priced, and doing so with sufficient notice to prepare.
As before, the majority of skins will be released at 975, and we will continue to push the envelope of quality at each tier.
This isnít about making Riot more money. The 79 skin prices that are being lowered actually produce more sales than the 17 that are being increased.
There will be more 750 skins released this year than 1350 skins, including five very cool 750 skins before the end of June...

As with other eCommerce initiatives in the past several months (champion price changes, rune page sales, self service refunds, gifting, legacy skin sale), this change was intended to make things better for players, not worse. As always, we are open to constructive feedback!

-Hippalus

If that Kayle skin drops to 1350, I'd probably buy it... if they stopped nerfing Kayle...
