Skins in LOL: An Introduction

Nowadays almost all online PC games have an ingame shop that allows you to customize your ingame experience with cosmetic skins and other items without granting any competitive advantage.  While they do not add any functionality or improve your gameplay / ability, by having skins you show your support and love towards the game and they certainly make your game experience more personalized and give you more swag points.

A lot of these skins are quite rare to get, which makes them highly valuable among the players. For that reason, even if a game is free, all of its skins are generally purchased in the shop, or found with really low odds of randomly dropping in loot boxes.
