Riot Games accidentally sells League skins for free. Furious whales on r/LeagueofLegends demand that other people's skins be deleted "I am deleting this game if they don’t revert this."

UPDATE: Riot said they won't revert it.

Background: skins in League come in bundles called "capsules" that cost around $5 each. They're probably filled with trash, so people buy lots and lots of them to get the ones they want. A few hours ago, Riot accidentally made them cost 1 Blue Essence, which is a common currency, most people have thousands of them. It's basically for free. For a window of a few minutes, highly sought after skins could be bought for very low prices. Let's see how the subreddit reacts:

I've spent over $2000 in league since I started in season 5 rip I guess. Feels bad man

900 over 5 years myself. I'm have a thing about collecting cosmetics for characters I like as a sort of completionist and this really does just make me super sour and not want to spend any more.

That would be the first time I'd feel proud for spending 3k on that damn game...

Man what the fuck. I’ve spent thousands of dollars (big regret btw), and now some jackass is just making off with all this free loot. I agree op, revert this.

If they dont revert this, the community will just hate em. I wont be buying rp anymore , if they dont fix this.

Spent 750+ euros, not spending anymore. GG Riot

As someone who spent "only" 500€, i assume it's safe to say these people actually made more skins due to this bug then i did out of those 500€.

before starting to accuse anyone who disagrees with you of being a filthy bug exploiter who "stole" skins from you

Exploiters aren't even trying to hide it lmaoo

Edit: Thanks to everybody responding to my comment and disagreeing. How many skins did you manage to get tho?

then launching into a discussion of economics and collective morality

ITT: People that don't understand microeconomics and why it's morally bad for society and the economy to let people keep things they should have but didn't pay for.

and my personal favorite: lamenting that their "investment" is worthless now

Are you a paying customer? Did you just spend $100 on capsules to hopefully get some nice loot and support Riot™, a company who made your beloved game? Well fuck you.

What you should have done is come online 1 hour earlier and just get all the shit from capsules for free, + another ~$900 worth of stuff, depending on how fast you could click.

Oh what's that? You weren't as lucky? Well, hey, according to some people in this thread, you should feel happy for those who paid nothing and got 10x more shit than you did, because that is totally fine and shame on you for feeling jealous of them. Just take the L, guy or girl, just be happy, and better luck "investing money" next time.

*Update: Riot has announced that they will not be reverting any of these 1BE capsules or the cosmetics that came from them.

In the new thread, one League player said it best with

tldr 1 BE capsules won't be reverted/recalled, people who buy RP getting dabbed on

They do have gas in the tank, but no money in the bank.

They spent it all on skins.

That means they stay in the game, but they don’t get to win unless they play in the game.

Can you explain what skins even are, what they do, and why people are paying thousands of dollars for a video game?

They're like putting a t-shirt on your dog. Except it's for your video game character instead.
