Do you get champs just for skins?

#1zefigPosted 4/19/2013 7:24:58 AM
I got:

Karma for the Traditional Skin (free)
Sejuani for the Traditional Skin (free)

Lee Sin for the Traditional Skin (fre-okay it wasn't free it was on sale for 260).

And now I got Naut for the Astro skin (on sale for 487, then later going up to 1350).

I do main jungler/support mostly, so these aren't useless additions to my roster.

Anyway, how about you? Do these things manipulate your buying behavior?

The only champion I have ever got for a skin was Veigar. It turns out that he is by far my favorite champion. Thinking about doing it for Fiddlesticks as well.

I got Karma and Trundle to get their skins. Saving up IP for Sej, but if I don't get it in time, I'm not going to use RP on a champ I don't want, just to get her traditional skin.

I have bought champs with RP in the past to get a skin that's on sale though

depends most of the time when I buy a champ just for a skin it's because I know that eventually I would have bought the champ anyway, seeing a skin on sale is just a incentive to buy it sooner.

I know that eventually I'll get all the champs but I,ll probably never buy a skin for the champs I don't like or don't want to play.

I may have purchased Sona today for her Arcade skin.

I should note that I have Trundle or I probs would've got him too.

I played Karma before her rework went live, and I preferred her before it. It feels wrong to not have big teamheals anymore.

Because skins make you a better player.
