Skin sales
Does anybody have idea how they actually work? I mean, how the skins that are going to have their cost reduced are picked? Is there some rotation (that avoids putting same skin to sale too many times in short period of time) or it is random (meaning same skill actually could go on sale twice in a row).

I'm asking because I never did pay much attention to it, and now with that free 350 rp I'd like to buy some skin. The problem is that I don't know if I can expect some skins that were lately on sale to be there again soon.

I'm asking here because I'm pretty sure that must've been mentioned before, but I can't find any thread or anything about it.

Thx for all answers in advance! Smile

RE: Skin sales
I believe that the cost reduction is picked randomly, but, of course, they'll check if the skin they're reducing the price of hasn't been reduced lately.
...Damn, my English is rusty.

RE: Skin sales
I find the 350 RP quite nothing. I mean, it isn´t enough to even get skins. The only thing you can purchase is XP boosts.
But well, better than nothing...



Lock in your characters and let me explain
The tale of a man who's caused so much pain
Demacia is the place he was raised
If you listen to me you'll be quite amazed
To learn why he's the king of the Rift
The enemy, they're all scared stiff
The heart of a team on mid lane pushes
The reason your foes stay out of the bushes.
The heat of a battle, Garen appears
Down the top lane runs a river of tears
A beacon of light, watch his enemies run
On his back eighteen cloaks of the sun
The lane seems clear but it's hard to say
Is he in the bushes, is he MIA?
It's team fight time, he'll lead the charge
His scarf is long his sword is large.

Not all of us are fortunate enough to own Warwick, Executive :p

RE: Skin sales
What does that have to do with anything? He's saying because of the 350RP he got a skin for WW not that he got WW. Just deal with it people that the 350RP is a small reward but as they said it was meant for the slight bit needed for getting a champ or skin, if you can't then too bad.

As for the sales I'm pretty sure it's random or even selected on the least used champions or something.

RE: Skin sales
We know, but for the ones who doesn´t live in the USA it´s nearly impossible to get RP.
You have to use PayPal, and to use PayPal you must have a credit card, and (at least here) you can´t afford a credit card till you have your own work and life. I´m 18, I have my own money but I don´t have a credit card. That´s why I can´t get any RP, and that´s why I would have liked a bit more. Not like 245463543543, but like 600 or so

That's quite right. I find it quite confusing that the cost of RP via sms for EU servers are so high even for European countries. So far for 1,7k (not even single legendary skin), you have to pay as much as for full newly released PC game (e.g. Call of Duty). Frown

RE: Skin sales
Cause when it comes to economies:

EU > NA/US?

Oh and it's called a pre-paid credit card. Get one.

[Edit] As for the SMS cellphone thing? It's usually more because of the costs of using cellphones, phone lines,etc to do the transaction. Once again just get a pre-paid credit card. Or heck ask a friend to buy the RP for you and pay 'em back.

Don't be so sure about that, Flame.
I'm not too sure about other countries, but England's economy is so bad right now that Africa will be having trust funds for us, one day.

I think Asian countries have the best economy at the moment.

I was happy with the RP; I had about 200RP left over from the Champion Pack I bought, and I now have enough to buy a skin.
Not sure which one yet, though.
