League of Legends developer Riot Games has revealed that a select number of vintage skins previously available only as giveaways at events - either in-game or out of the game - will will become available for purchase or gifting for a limited time during the upcoming months.
According to the official news post, 34 skins have been released so far during the period of December 2009 and October 2011, with these rare skins becoming even rarer after the playerbase grew exponentially. To put it into perspective, the most common skin, Bewitching Nidalee, is only seen once every 971 games in North American games. The least most common, Ice Toboggan Corki, appears once every 116,586 games in North America.
Players have frequently requested ways to gain access to these skins, which Riot has now taken into consideration and revealed a limited time offer. To help compensate those who were lucky enough to own the rare skins, they’ll receive Riot Points equal equal to the price they paid for the skin, a vintage treatment in the loading screen when they use the skin, and an exclusive summoner icon.
Here's a breakdown on when you'll be able to purchase the skins:
