If you missed out on Limited Edition skins for League of Legends like Zombie Ryze and Goalkeeper Blitzcrank, you're going to get another shot at purchasing them. LoL developer Riot Games plans to re-release many of the Limited Edition Skins in the months ahead.
Riot released 34 limited edition skins between December 2009 and October 2011 and planned to only offer them for a brief window of time. If players missed out on buying these skins, they wouldn't get another chance. However, Riot has decided to reconsider the strategy because of two reasons. First, the player community for LoL has grown so much that these LE skins are almost never seen in the game. Second, fans have been clamoring for a re-release.
"Every day we receive heartfelt emails with compelling stories from players asking for the chance to own or gift their favorite skin, either because they missed the brief store window due to travel, illness, deployment, etc., or because they hadn’t joined the LoL community yet," Riot says in a news post.
This month, they'll put the skins from the Harrowing 2010 and Harrowing 2010 events on sale. The Snowdown Showdown 2009 and 2010 collections will return in December. The Winter Games 2010 and World Cup 2010 skins will make a comeback in February and June of next year, respectively. Here's the full list of Champion skins on sale for each window:
Riot adds that they may bring back other Limited Edition skins in time as well, such as Championship Riven or Riot K9 Nasus. They have no plans to re-release the "earned" LE skins from events or achievements, such as Victorious Jarvan or PAX Twisted Fate.
The development team will be hosting an AMA on Reddit to answer any questions players have about this decision and others. The AMA kicks off on October 15th at 12pm Pacific Time.
