League of Legends May Skin and Champion Sales

Riot Games has chosen to try out something new this month, and instead of the normal Monday/Thursday champion and skin sale announcements we’ve been accustomed to in League of Legends, we’re getting an entire month’s worth of skin sale announcements up front. If you ever wanted to know ahead of time what champions and skins will be getting a RP discount, things are looking up for you! While this new take on Riot’s business model is aimed only for the month of May, it’s likely we’ll see a shift towards this League of Legends marketing strategy, should the sales prove to be more successful.

Because League of Legends is completely free to download and play, Riot Games relies on Riot Point (RP) sales to be successful. Recent reports would suggest the company’s revenues from skin and champion sales have diminished, a likely effect of increased competition from various other MOBAs, such as Smite or Dota 2. With Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm also on the horizon, Riot will have to work hard to stay competitive. Regardless, here’s the schedule for champion and skill sales for the month of May:
