    Let's do this again.

    1)
    Normal price of epic skin is 400 or more crystals. That's how it's always have been, unless it is on a sale or in a cheap chest.
    VIP price of epic skins is 270 crystals (or 210 if you already have membership). That's for exclusive skins. Non-vip ones on rotation will cost less.
    Apart from the Zhin skin, that is an exclusive thing (like the ice mount), you can get all the VIP skins with crystals.

    2)
    You can grind for it. Tell me one developer that let you free grind for premium content in their F2P games.
    "Oh but it will take too long."
    Like I said it's premium content in a F2P game. What do you expect? To get it as easy as catching a Caterpie?
    For fuck sake, it's skins. If it was gameplay stuff being locked I would understand the complaint, but it's just fucking skins.

    3)
    "But Maeve skin is too expensive."
    Ruckus legendary cost 800 crystals. With 760 crystals you can buy 100k points. With 100k points you can buy Raeve and Goddess skin and still save 10k.
    It actually cheap for a legendary.

    Of all things to complain about like essence, bugs or hackers, you guys chose an actually good thing that will make the acquisition of premium skins easier.

    EDIT: Not only that but you can grind it in bot games. That's right. Play bot games and you will get premium currency.

    It's just gold, you grind for it but can pay to make it quicker. Can we just pay for the VIP items with gold then those who want it quicker can get an account booster?

    I honestly don't know why they implemented this system. It would be 1,000% easier to just release the cosmetics as normal or maybe put them on a quest or something.

    I like the new skins. A lot actually. However the fact that Hi-Rez is adding more skins to BUY ONLY deals is frustrating and the VIP store is completely unnecessary.

    There's only 2 skins that are buy only. Fernando Ares and Zhin Conqueror.
    And both are gifts as they are bundled in pack with way better things.

    Well, nobody likes math. Took me a day to tell people that Ying's rework is actually a buff through the power of math. (And then I realized my math was shit and I was counting her burst and not her real dps which is still better than before)

    But people have a prejudice for anything has the word VIP in it when it comes to video games, all VIP content is paid, so they just assumed Paladin's is the same instead of looking deeper and doing the actual math.
