In 2009 through 2011, Riot Games released a number of limited edition League of Legends skins during special events. These were sold with a promise that they would never be featured in the store again. For those that have been eager to get their hands on them, the window is opening once more.

In order to make this right for those that did purchase them originally, Riot is offering make-rights to those that players. The company will award in-game currency equivalent to the original purchase price and "vintage treatment" in the loading screen whenever those skins are used.

There are 34 skins included (list below), but this doesn't encompass all the limited skins. Some are still out of rotation, but should they be brought back, the same compensation will apply. Earned skins, like those that are handed out at PAX, are not currently planned for inclusion in the store. Finally, other "legacy" skins might be brought back with no compensation.

If the 34 in this group are brought back again, no additional compensation will be offered. This is a one-time deal for this group. Here is the list and when you can get them:

Our Take
League of Legends' free-to-play model is one of the most ethical and fair in the industry. The purchases are largely cosmetic, and given the interest in bringing these skins back, people are quite happy to spend the money.
