If you missed out on your chance to grab some limited edition skins in the past, then you might want to read up on League of Legends' plan to bring them back.

Riot Games has posted on the official League of Legends site, revealing its plan to reintroduce some vintage Limited Edition skins. The developer cites the fact very few of those classic skins released during events from December 2009 through October 2011 are ever seen in games, and players who do see them want to know how to obtain them.

To that end, they'll be releasing these skins again for a limited time. Here is the solution at which Riot arrived:

  • The 34 Limited Edition skins will become available for purchase or gifting for a limited time during the following months:
    • Harrowing 2010 & 2011 skins during October 2013
    • Snowdown Showdown 2009 & 2010 skins during December 2013
    • Winter Games 2010 skins during February 2014
    • World Cup 2010 skins during June 2014
Players who already have these skins might be worried that the exclusivity of their skins are in jeopardy. In order to compensate for this, Riot Games will be giving them Riot Points equal to the price they paid for the skin, a vintage loading screen and an exclusive summoner icon. These 34 skins will be considered Legacy skins and might possibly become available again in the future.
Skins that are unaffected by these changes include the following:
  • Limited Edition skins that were once in the store but are not part of these events (Rusty Blitzcrank, Urf Warwick, Championship Riven, Riot Singed). If these skins are ever brought back, they will be treated similarly.
  • Earned Limited Edition skins that were rewarded for events or achievements and never appeared in the store (PAX Twisted Fate, King Rammus, Victorious Jarvan, UFO Corki, etc.).We have no plans to make these skins available.
  • Other Legacy skins (Riot K9 Nasus, Zombie Brand, Nottingham Ezreal, etc.), which may still come back into the store from time to time without compensation.
