I will probably buy a few individual skins (legacy)

scroll down and they have a list of legacy skins available with prices (don't know if euw prices are different from NA prices) They have the skins broke down by year.

I am going to get a few skins once they come out with them or should I saw if they come out with them. But NOT near as what I had intended to originally buy .. sorry the spirit is just not there and I am gunshy.. . But if you miss Christmas/Snow-fight/Snowden/Snowfall/winterfest/KrisKringlevision or what ever it is going to "change to" As in release something after Dec 25th ..

Patience ran out the min it turned Nov 1st with no skins and no communication, if not before that. Yes they apologized but then still did not release legacy skins which would have been easy but noooo they wanted an extra week of Worlds skins so they filled us with promises of a better tomorrow and light at the end of the tunnel .. they just did not specify what tomorrow they were talking about and what the source of that light in the tunnel is ...

I will put it to use. I held lane too long, I did not back until I had almost 2k gold. and after we took the first dragon most wards were placed defensively, as they then pushed really hard. But I am working on my ward placement. Also I was told not to pink if I had {{item:2049}} so I assumed that a pink would take up one of the 3 wards from the sightstone. Also the boots I was going for {{item:1306}} and with the {{item:3070}} building towards {{item:3003}} I was using this as a template. http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/dominate-as-ap-support-sona-season-5-guide-updated-408121 I am relatively new < 2 months playing

Our highest lvl was 29 with me the lowest at 26 vs 3 ranked playes and 2 lvl 29s _“Smarter Matchmaking” -- The system that recognizes your familiarity with each role, position and champion, adjusting your MMR based on your experience. Smarter Matchmaking’s improved the way the system finds appropriate opponents, using this new, more accurate gauge of skill_ IMO that was not a appropriate matchup. Just the exp on their team vs our team was a mismatch.

Got my hopes up this morning when I had to recheck the tos/eula and was let down with no update to the store. And just trying to narrow down "a bit later this patch" that can mean anything.

I mean who do you think you are telling riot, "we're not satisfied and you should do what you always do the same way". I'm sorry but no. if riot wants to experiment with the harrowing in a different way then before then by all means. I'm down. I'm sorry people went out and bought RP for the legacy skins and couldn't wait any longer cause it didn't fall on Halloween, that's their fault. this game has such a wide audience and tries to keep things fresh and doing new things is what makes people love it more. how do you know that this harrowing won't top every other harrowing? honestly you don't. and your blatant lack of respect and questioning as to why things aren't the way they are show are rude you are. We are the consumers. And as always consumers vote with **their** dollars. You are very much confusing people telling publishers to make changes to the game, nerfs, buffs making it hard and making it easier. We are referring to an annual event that typically takes place well ... umm annually. And if you think that this was all "planned" as in a group of riot employees decided months ago to do this. Well I I have some ocean front property in Arizona for you. As I have said in other posts. Riot is a company. A company's prime directive is to make money. They don't pass on revenue they don't leave money laying on the table, Unless you are a charity or the center of a feel good story (I don't see the letters U R or F in your name) then you are there to pay the executive salaries, developer salaries, customer service, LCS events, world events, economists, the list goes on and on and on. Holiday events are prime for revenue growth and IMO something happened internally that caused this to happen. But that is neither here nor there. Yes a Halloween event or Harrowing event is expected as it has been since inception. Had this been a "planned strategic" goal to break up The Harrowing and Halloween they would have announced it PRIOR to todays announcement. They would not have passed the opportunity of FREE MONEY by not allowing previous legacy skins to be available in the store. If in any event they would have/should have done it strictly for PR purposes. And don't forget it's that WIDE audience that keeps this game pumping. It is that WIDE audience that pays REAL LIFE CASH for skins. That same REAL LIFE CASH the allows you to post on the board. That WIDE AUDIENCE that plays the games through all the rule changes and all of the buffing, nerfing and item changes season after season. Forgetting about or even worse not communicating the dissolution of what they have reinforced as a traditional annual event well that is where the animosity is coming from. And remember that the vast majority of the people complaining about the non existence of Halloween 2015 or the Harrowing v5.x are people who are/were willing, ready and wanting to spend $$$ (remember the companies primary goal is to make $$$) ----- Now to address your points: **_I'm sorry people went out and bought RP for the legacy skins and couldn't wait any longer cause it didn't fall on Halloween, that's their fault_** If you are referring to "their" to the as the people that bought RP for the Halloween event, No it is NOT their fault as they purchased RP in anticipation for an event that has been held annually and traditionally. Riot should have made it public that there was going to be a change. You are possibly insinuating that Riot was keeping quiet about the lack of a Halloween event and split of Halloween & the Harrowing so the fan base would as in years past and holiday past load up on RP. If you are referring to "their" as Riot, well then you are on point. The lack of communication is where the major disconnect was. **_ if riot wants to experiment with the harrowing in a different way then before_** Riot has already said Halloween and The Harrowing are 2 (two) different events. The Harrowing is not tied to Halloween ... "The Harrowing can happen any time of the year!". By this method of thought they forgot about the Halloween holiday. There are too many posts about this to elaborate. **_ how do you know that this harrowing won't top every other harrowing? honestly you don't_** Any Harrowing event will not make up for a lost Halloween event. That is not saying that it won't be good, great or bad, but it is not a Halloween event. And everyone knows that. The lost revenue from not having a Halloween event is well lost. That is not saying they won't make some money because they will, but not as much. **_your blatant lack of respect and questioning as to why things aren't the way they are show are rude you are._** Incorrect Riot's lack of communication is where the lack of respect is. This has caused all the strife. I have spent too much time on this.. **Is Riot a bad company because of this?** NO they are not. But it was handled incorrectly for what ever reason. **Do I think a game developer/publisher should jump at every players command? **No I do not there have been too many good games ruined because they bent to the consumers will and on the other side of the scale there have been good games that bit the dust because they thought they were Frank Sinatra (referring to "I Did It My Way"). But there is a happy medium and from what I have seen Riot has done a good job in that area. And if anyone takes anything from this .. take this .. URF is NOT Dead ... he is kicking it on a Paradise Island with Elvis & TuPac! Oh and one more thing ... the point of everyone being $$$ to Riot. Paying customers far outweigh the non paying customers. That is in the business model. I know multiple people with smurf accounts that all have skins ... and skins = $$$ to Riot

: Why a late Horrowing event won't be worth the wait.
I don't see how they can "make up" for not having a Halloween event .. I say Halloween because now they are separated. Every game that I can think of had SOME kind of Halloween event. Worlds going on at the same time should not be an excuse. There is nothing at Worlds that should encompass any of the development team or marketing team. I include marketing because these events ARE marketing ploys for us to shell out cash to buy RP to buy event goodies. Riot is a profit driven company. Passing up on a holiday that would generate positive revenue is just stupid and leads one with a business mind to think that there was a major internal hiccup. But that being said they could have done things to mitigate it and still profit by making legacy ~~Harrowing~~ Halloween skins available and they could not even do that. Short of giving everyone a choice of free skins anything they do will be like a bad afterthought. If they make legacy Halloween skins available on Tuesday they will still make some money but not near what they would have made had they released it 1 week prior/3 days prior or the day of Halloween. The spirit of the holiday was lost. **Do I think they can pull off an event? Yes. Do I think they can create an event that would be fun/benefit everyone? Yes. Will that event take the place of a missed Halloween event? Not likely. ** The holiday is over and now most people are just bitter. And honestly rightly so with the severe lack of communication they have had with their fan base. Thanksgiving dinner in December is not the same as Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving, Christmas in July does not take the place of December 25th. Sure there are situations where a holiday could not be celebrated on the particular day but those are few and far between. We had a Halloween dress up day on Friday at work. I missed work that day. Me going into work today (Monday) and wearing a costume is not going to roll over well and it is not going to be the same as it would have been on that Friday. RIP Halloween 2015

I just checked .. on November 1st 2015 and none of the above skins are for sale in the store. If you click the actual champion the skin is listed as "Unavailable" And again any skin made available after yesterday "10/31/2015) is really an after thought. If I showed up for Thanksgiving dressed up as Batman and explaining to the family that I didn't get to wear it at Halloween soooooo "Here''s Johhhhhny" yeah it's just not the same.. So as of today Nov 1st Zombie Nunu, Slayer Jinx, and Slayer Pantheon don't count as a Halloween 2015 skin. And as far as economics are concerned... Where as prior to Halloween I would have picked up all 3 skins as well as other legacy skins for the holiday. But now I may only pick up 2 maybe 3 of them including only 1 of the new skins. Riot could have handled Halloween/The Harrowing 2015 much much better from a cs perspective, from a pr point and from a fiscal perspective.

: Reminder: There WILL Be a Halloween Event this year
Thanks IIIlana while it still will be cool .. even though most of us are grown adults (which actually makes it worse) But it's going to seem more like a after Christmas day sell. I agree that they should have at the very least opened up the store have Halloween skins selling. I mean that should have been covered in the 1st week of How to Profit 101. If they have skins for sale I will probably still pick a few up but its just not the "same", its going to seem more like an after thought. :(
: R.I.P. Harrowing
I guess it is all about the day after Franken Annie this year. This is my first ~~Halloween~~ errr ~~seasonal event~~ errr non event. I have to say I am disappointed. I mean I know that they have world's going on but I also know at my place of employment we have may different projects going on at once. I don't know what Riot has or had planed I just know unlike Halloween candy, a Halloween party AFTER Halloween is well just a party. I did submit a ticket a few days ago and got this response: > _Hello Summoner, > > I’m sorry, but I can’t provide any information beyond the announcement of any new or upcoming content or promotions. Anything we haven’t officially released is still subject to change, so we try not to discuss too many details. > > Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!_ I mean from a financial standpoint they should have had something going on. But it is what it is. Needless to say I hope that future events kick off normally.
