Riot reverts controversial paywalls in new League Mythic content overhaul

A complete overhaul to the Mythic-tier skin system in League of Legends was previously slated to be released early this year but will soon be officially available alongside Patch 12.6. Yet some of the changes Riot detailed locked many Mythic skins behind massive paywalls, sparking outge among League fans.

Ken Adams, product lead on events, loot, skins, and more at Riot Games, announced that the team is opting to revert some of the more controversial changes to accompany the Mythic content overhaul. This includes stepping back on the proposed change to remove all Mythic-tier skins out of chests and skin rerolls, as well as lowering the price of Showcase Prestige skins.
