When it comes to League of Legends, Faker is an absolute expert at the game, with four world championship titles under his belt. He’s incredibly skilled, to the point where he was the inaugural player to be inducted into Riot Games’ Hall of Fame, a prestigious accolade reserved for the most exceptional LoL players. With this prestigious accolade also comes a remarkable commemorative skin, so highly valued that players are contemplating permanently banning the champion who possesses it.

The Signature Immortalized Legend Collection is the priciest option among the three sets available. Not only does it feature cosmetic items for two of Faker’s most iconic characters, but it also offers a variety of other unique bonuses that are only available in this set. To acquire all these bonuses, you’ll need to invest 59,620 Riot Points, which is League of Legends’ premium in-game currency.

When it comes to comparison, the majority of skins have a price tag of 1,350 RP, which roughly translates to $16. To acquire the nearly 60,000 points required for this pack, you’ll need to purchase the four largest packs at a price of $100 each, along with an additional pack priced at $50 to cover the remaining amount. Altogether, you’ll need to invest approximately $450, making this set the priciest offering from Riot. Last year, players expressed dissatisfaction with the $200 skin, but it seems the studio has now pushed the limits beyond measure.

As expected, the community response was overwhelmingly negative. Although Faker is highly respected, players are expressing their disappointment in Riot – even numerous renowned esports players have voiced their criticism of the costly kit.

Some players are even considering organizing a protest within the game, demonstrating their dissatisfaction with the skin through a collective boycott. There is no way to prevent another player from purchasing cosmetics, but you can certainly make an effort to hinder their usage. In League of Legends ranked matches, there is a champion pick and ban phase. If your champion gets banned before the match begins, you will need to choose a different one. Given this, players are already strategizing to heavily ban Ahri when the skin is released on June 12.

Riot has a tendency to experiment with things like this before ultimately discontinuing them due to player feedback. Whether that will occur in this situation is yet to be determined. There is a high probability that the studio will employ a common tactic – lowering the price to 200-250 dollars, claiming it as a discounted and attractive offer.
