The Conqueror Karma skin that became available during the Mid-Season Invitational will make a comeback for the League of Legends World Championship.
“In our ‘MSI Hits the Rift Article,’ we mentioned that Conqueror Karma would make a return in celebration of the Worlds season,” an announcement from Riot Games reads. “Since that time, we decided that to better solidify Conqueror as a Mid-Season Invitational skin it would only return during MSI each year (similar to how Championship skins only appear at Worlds). It was our mistake to go back on what we said before and we’ll be putting her in the store from now through the end of Worlds 2017 as promised — sorry to keep anyone waiting!”
Any future skins in the Conqueror line will be available during MSI, much like how the Championship skin line is only available during worlds. The announcement makes no mention of the Conqueror Ward Skin, which was also made available during MSI.
A quarter of sales from the Conqueror Karma skin and ward skin directly contributed to the prize pool at MSI, a trend that started at worlds last year, where 25 percent of the proceeds from the Championship Zed and ward skins directly contributed to that year’s prize pool. MSI’s total prize pool jumped from $250,000 to $1.95 million thanks to the sales of the skins during the MSI period.
