League of Legends will receive a new set of cosmetic content starting with patch 12.12. These are the Mythic Chromas , which bring changes to the skins and extend the range of color changes applied by the chromas that we already know. Instead of only affecting character textures, Riot Games will also change the effects of abilities by changing the colors. This way, the developer got a more appealing result that convinced the community. However, there are also a lot of controversies.
A price story?
Mythic Chromas will be added every other patch and will be exclusively for Legendary skins and Mythic skin families that arrive every year. On paper, the idea is good and the community was delighted with the news. This adds a little something extra to the more exclusive cosmetics offered by Riot Games.
However, there is an issue with the price of these chromas, which will only be available in exchange for 40 Fantastic Essences . This currency is quite difficult to obtain because it is mostly based on events, which is why a large part of the community considers the price to be somehow too high.
Although there is a chance that the price will be reduced before the mythical chromas are introduced on the live servers, players don't have much hope. When the Ash Knight Pyke chroma was introduced on the PBE, there were already complaints about its price. Recoloring the cosmetic didn't even introduce any new skill effects and Riot Games also decided to sell it for 40 Fantastic Essences. A situation that upset all the players. It should be noted in this regard that the developer will retroactively update the chroma to bring it up to the new quality standard.
Riot Games' policy on cosmetic content in League of Legends has been controversial throughout the year. Players feel like the developer is trying to pull the strings in an effort to increase their profits. Even if true, it's a logical business decision. However, the company makes a minimum effort and tries to raise the prices of its products. Luckily, community protests have already brought down some of the company's proposed ideas, and players may well succeed once again.
