We’re changing up discounts

By Riot Hippalus

Hey everyone,

A lot of you have given us feedback around offering sales more frequently and in wider varieties, so we’re trying to provide extra deals to help you grab the skins you want.

TLDR:

  • We’re adding 2 additional champions and skins per week (now 8 instead of 6) to our standard 50% off discounts, effective immediately
  • We’re introducing an early sale for recently released skins, so you don’t have to wait a year for a skin’s first sale
    • All tiers, including future Legendaries, will be eligible for the early sale
    • Starting 2016, the early sale will replace launch discounts
    • To get things started, we’re rolling out an early sale with Extra Bonus RP on Dec. 3rd

Introducing the early sale!

A year or more is a long time to wait for a deal, so we are adding a monthly sale featuring skins of all tiers. All non-Legacy skins will go in the sale 4-6 months after release. This means skins that previously didn’t have early discounts (750s and 975s) will start going on sale sooner.

We also want players to have a chance to get a deal on skins of any tier, which conflicts with the fact that we previously didn’t discount legendary skins (1820s). So we're making future Legendary skins eligible for the early sale (previously released 1820s won’t be going on sale though). This’ll be the only time Legendary and Ultimate skins will be purchasable at a direct discount.

Here’s how it’ll break down:


Tier Sale Price
3250 2450
1820 1350
1350 975
975 750
750 520

Bringing all of our skins onto the same early sale schedule means there will no longer be a launch sale for 1350s and Ultimates starting in the new year. All 1350s released during the rest of 2015 will still go on sale at launch and be eligible for their early sale 4-6 months later. We’re kicking this off with a mega version of this sale. Keep reading for more details.


More 50% off sales

To give you more chances to grab a deal, we're bumping up the number of weekly skins and champions from 6 to 8 in our standard 50% off sales. This sale still applies to 520-1350 RP skins. The new sales schedule will generally follow this new pattern over the course of 2 weeks (4 sales):


Week 1 - Sale 1
  • 520 RP skin
  • 750 RP skin
  • 975 RP skin
  • 1350 RP skin
Week 1 - Sale 2
  • 520 RP skin
  • 750 RP skin
  • 975 RP skin
  • 975 RP skin
Week 2 - Sale 1
  • 520 RP skin
  • 975 RP skin
  • 975 RP skin
  • 1350 RP skin
Week 2 - Sale 2
  • 520 RP skin
  • 750 RP skin
  • 975 RP skin
  • 975 RP skin

Let's get started

To kick off the new sales, over 30 skins released in the last 4-6 months will go on sale from December 3 19:01 AEDT through December 8 18:59 AEDT. Remember, you'll also get extra bonus RP when you purchase RP from November 29 19:01 AEDT through December 8 18:59 AEDT.
