    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm not sure... For getting the Nashor icon, we have to never been banned by the Tribunal? What really means "spreading holidays cheer"? It is related to the friendly honor?


    Captain Obvious, I need you.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Also, if someone have more informations about the shopkeeper icons, I'll take it. ♥

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  21. Totally right,
    i thought fid wil be 520 to -_-

    ReplyDelete
  22. Surely Bad Santa's naughty list is full of well behaved people?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Really wish the baron icon was slightly more specific...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thank you riot for giving me my Toy Soldier Gangplank that I have been waiting for!

    Merry Christmas to Me and to All.

    ReplyDelete
  25. WTF, are thoes wards free ? i have clicked the "use this ward skin" button and im able to use it for free (didnt took me any IP at all).

    ReplyDelete
  26. so the shopkeer icon gets unlocked if you have all the others?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I feel the same. I'm gonna get LB skin though. And probably Fiddle and Mao, not sure yet.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Riot will put this year the winter summoner rift map?

    ReplyDelete
  29. 520 RP for the Fiddle skin? It would have been stupid, it has different particles and animations.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't know if you read it but it says "free ward skins"

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hello. How long are the skins going to be available?

    ReplyDelete
  32. dont get banned/warned, or anything like in this month and u get it i guess

    ReplyDelete
  33. https://twitter.com/RiotMorello/status/279308792179613696 No.

    ReplyDelete
  34. so, the ultra lame recall animation went through
    so dissapointed~

    ReplyDelete
  35. Evolve and overcome

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've got a question about that five-man-premande icon. Does it have to be a ranked game or is normal queue fine?

    ReplyDelete
  37. That will happen in January, don't you read your surr@20 news?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ziggs, you don't make any sense ( again ) .

    ReplyDelete
  39. wuju pass me the sense?

    ReplyDelete
  45. jared the hut brownDecember 14, 2012 at 4:07 PM

    any queue.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think Piero is refering to holiday Limited Edition skins. As we all know this won't happen and Riot stated this. But they are looking into a way to let players tade those rare limited edition skins next year so people can get Snow Bunny Nidalee and Kitty Katarina

    ReplyDelete
  47. Until January 6th, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Earn this by completing a merry, five-man premade battle on the Fields of Justice.

    Does this includes 5 man premade against bots as well? co-op vs ai?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Don't worry, I got this.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Probably not the reported part. People will report for god damned anything.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Haven't been banned or warned after 2 years...Should be easy.

    ReplyDelete
  52. This reminds me, about Steel Legion Lux, wanna see it finished fastly.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh well, I see, thanks for the clarification. But just as you said, those are limited, didn't even occur to me he may be talking about those because those are sealed and void.

    ReplyDelete
  54. They could at least came back with the last years map, Like they made the 2011 legacy xmas skins avaiable this time again, i think they done it because will be no SR xmas map. :(

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ugh, it’s gonna take forever to scrape your face off my suit!

    ReplyDelete
  56. no, its about receiving and giving honor

    ReplyDelete
  57. yes they are free for 23 days

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm gonna give you the ultimate spank for impersonating another Syndra!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I got the Urf and Baron icons, not sure what I did to get the Baron icon, though.

    ReplyDelete
  60. How long did it take to get it? I gifted a friend a Champion and i haven't got my icon yet. And do you know anything you did before you got the baron icon?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I got my icon after the latest mini patch.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I up vote just for the snowmerdinger part , the fiddle part i think its unfair for who made the model+particles+animation to sell it for 520.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I bought Kat skin , and was thinking about buying LB one , but i changed my mind after seeing how all the skills are same as default , i can see now how the new skins has better quality and worth the 975 , LB one doesn't worth 975 anymore < IMO.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yep, I did too and already enabled the Baron one, just too cute^^ Maybe you should all check it. By the way, the new Fiddle Login is superb.

    ReplyDelete
  65. There is ways to get them. So they aren't

    ReplyDelete
  66. So I bought my friend Nunu...

    ReplyDelete
  67. Yeti bot speaking... beep.. boop....

    ReplyDelete
  68. I did, I logged out and back in like 3 times. And i want the Baron one ;-;

    ReplyDelete
  69. You must be me when i was weak, i mean "good".

    Justicar Syndra, she is not evil and Powerfull like me.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I think the baron icon is different than the others. It looks at your entire past (or just this year) until now and sees your history of being reported (like Santa watches you all year) and then it will give it to those who haven't been banned or reported. That's why some people have already recieved it and it takes a longer time because it goes off of past records.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ziggs? Unpredictable, dangerous, yes yes. But quite brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Glad you did... He will feel good about it... :D

    ReplyDelete
  73. Yes... Nunu bot agrees...

    ReplyDelete
  74. Giving Assasin Master Yi's everywhere in 3, 2, 1..

    ReplyDelete
  75. I look so sexy with this new outfit. <3

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have a present for u :3

    ReplyDelete
  77. Tears of sadness while the value of my Mistletoe LeBlanc skin goes down.
    And yet, tears of joy, as my happiness is shared with others.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Run, playthings, the yeti is ulting he looks angry.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I thought they weren't new particles andr were just colour swapped, I don't know guess I dont play Fid enough?

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hasta la vista baby

    ReplyDelete
  81. I can live with imprisioned Syndra :P

    ReplyDelete
  82. Have you by any chance purchased the Bad Santa Veiger skin?

    ReplyDelete
  83. Pix or it didn't happen.

    ReplyDelete
  84. No, the symbol has nothing to do with the Veigar Skin.

    ReplyDelete
  85. somehow i got the baron icon. pretty sure its by wearing a holiday skin. "spreading holiday cheer this Snowdown" but im honestly not even sure

    ReplyDelete
  86. Oh gosh, this is sad... replying to myself... BUT I GOT MY RED NOSED URF! BOOYAH!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Nice - curious about the Nashor and Shopkeeper icons.

    Also: To all these champion novelty accounts, reddit says "Hi"... http://i.imgur.com/mfC0t.gif

    ReplyDelete
  88. Some how I got the Nashor skin. I do own the Veigar skin and did play him. Maybe that's the way you get it? Unsure... Who ever else has the Veigar skin might be able to confirm this.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I don't think so, my cousin has it and the only champ he has played that would have one is Gragas and he doesn't own Gragas.

    ReplyDelete
  90. The map has changed, so they would need a new map.

    ReplyDelete
  91. You look sexy in any of your outfits. (Read that in Heimerdinger's voice)

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm not funny, I'm outrageous.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Lol, that dont even means every skin should be 975 RP,
    omg RIOT just want money money and money - lot of money -_-

    ReplyDelete
  94. Heads up for the Barron Christmas icon
    "The initial batch of baron icons were rewarded to the players who were the most positive all year long. The next batch will come after the holiday." RiotLyte
    so get out there be nice and make people happy well playing some league!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Oh , finally, I can wear my blue dress and disguise as Frost QUEEN Janna <333 Can't wait to blow them up on the Fields of Justice! Popular girl Janna out.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I meant void from being sold again.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I got the icon, and I have never been warned or banned.

    Do you guys this is it?

    ReplyDelete
  98. And how do they see this?? because it have nothing to do with your honor then..

    i have friends with maybe 3-4 honor in each who got it.. while i'm at 20-70
    i have never been banned or reported.. it's the only icon i actually wan't.. and i will be very sad if i don't get it

    ReplyDelete
  99. No thats not it, i would have it too

    ReplyDelete
  100. I think it has something to do with the honor system.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Or for not getting punished by the tribunal this year.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I got the Santa Nashor icon on EUW already! Anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Indeed, maybe next year? Although that's a long time to wait..

    ReplyDelete
  104. Yay!
    My gramps is on an icon !
    Hut, two, three four , i'll get it swiftly !

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hey Syndra , stop talking to yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  106. i think you get it by simply not getting reported for one day

    ReplyDelete
  107. you probably have to play every day at least one match until the event is over, not sure
    meaning christmas days as well

    ReplyDelete
  108. What happened if i gift my friend skin on champion he didnt own?

    ReplyDelete
  109. Well my friend has the nashor icon. he owns a previous snowdown skin but not one from this year. He's never used one in game and doesn't have honorable opponent. So it's probably not for getting honorable opponent (also I have honorable opponent and I don't have it)

    ReplyDelete
  110. You CAN be naughty and well behaved if you're just naughty in the bed =P

    ReplyDelete
  111. Don't listen to him, it's not like that. I have my santa baron icon already, I posted my theory on how to get it somewhere here in my comment.

    ReplyDelete
  112. For the shopkeeper icon, on the forums someone guessed at getting all of the icons beforehand to get it. But then this response came from a riot employee: "RiotHippalus: It's a little easier than that...but just a little."

    ReplyDelete
  113. Good answers in return of this question with real arguments and telling
    the whole thing about that.
    My web-site :: web design miami beach

    ReplyDelete
  114. How is having a snowdown skin related to this? I have not a single snowdown skin by the way. Now the question is: Have you received any honor from an opponent today? The threshold may be the patch that updates the loading screen image to snow fiddlesticks image.

    ReplyDelete
  115. You need to be a one of the most positive players throughout 2012, then you get this icon instant. If you are friendly in the winter time then you get this after snowdown showdown. Lyke posted that.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Got a friend who has it.. he have had several warning and was banned some months ago
    so it doesn't have anything to do with being banned, nothing to do with honor since i have honorable badge and lots of honor and i've got friends with almost no honor who have it..


    right now it looks like it's just randomly given out

    ReplyDelete
  117. Got 3 icons. Love this Snowsdown \ o /

    ReplyDelete
  118. i think staying off Bad Santa Veigar’s naughty list means -> change your summoner name
    bcus 4 of my friend that have nashor icon get summoner name change :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. You just need to be good boy, dont get report, and have some honor (red honor badge just rise you chance) and you'll get it.

    ReplyDelete
  120. not exacly. a got this w/o change

    ReplyDelete
  121. Let's end this quickly, I need to use a little soldiers room!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I don't have it but im pretty sure it has something to do with honor :D

    ReplyDelete
  123. I got honourable opponent a couple of days ago and now I've got the baron badge, that might have something to do with it.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Come forth, you will find honor in death!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Ulting in 3....2....1...

    ReplyDelete
  126. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! *nunu bot robotic laugh*

    ReplyDelete
  127. Now do your old recall animation to me.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Impeccable decision.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I logged in and i have Baron icon, but i have no idea why or when i got it. O.o

    ReplyDelete
  130. Come on Teemo, throw away that chickenshit blowgun.

    ReplyDelete
  131. If it bleeds, we kill it.

    ReplyDelete
  132. I guess it means for ppl who never got banned for this year . it said "you’ll get this icon for staying off Bad Santa Veigar’s naughty list"

    ReplyDelete
  133. These people impersonating champions must not have very many friends.

    ReplyDelete
  134. The duplicates Syndras will punish you, cause we love to watch Teemos fly.

    ReplyDelete
  135. They don't have absolute control.

    ReplyDelete
  136. i don't think so...i got a friend who got banned like two mmonths ago, for a month, and he loged in and he had it, i've been good and i don't have mine ):

    ReplyDelete
  137. My friend who has been banned by the tribunal previously got the nashor icon so it can't be that

    ReplyDelete
  138. My friend got the baron one , He doesn't play Lol much , he plays co-op only. (So sure he will not get reported or banned the way he plays)

    ReplyDelete
  139. did he have a ribbon? I've never been banned and have honourable opponent, but no icon.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Just give honor and you'll get Holiday Nashor lol n_n

    ReplyDelete
  141. What the hell do you think you're doing?

    ReplyDelete
  142. To get Baron Nashor Icon u have to get honored by fed peoples.
    My friend got this icon after 4 honors.

  144. CAWCAWCAWCAWCAWCAWCAWCAW

    ReplyDelete
  145. It is most likely based on chat logs

    ReplyDelete
  146. Teemo stop talking to yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I just got this, all i did was buy the legacy leblanc skin and wish everyone a merry christmas when i got in my game. lol

    ReplyDelete
  148. Pretty much had figured it wouldn't be as easy as 'don't get banned'.

    ReplyDelete
  149. It's maybe the key. I'm going to say "I WISH A MERRY CHRISTMAS" to everyone, in every game :D

    ReplyDelete
  150. Think you didn't get the pun

    ReplyDelete
  151. Nope. I failed my pun roll, got natural fail!! XD I still don't get it T_T

    ReplyDelete
  152. Maybe it's because you're real pretty

    ReplyDelete
  153. Enjoy winter skins,icons and wards on SUMMER rift yeah that's right SUMMER rift

    ReplyDelete
  154. Those gingerbread wards make me hungry...

    ReplyDelete
  155. I got the Nashor Icon as soon as I signed on, and I have been banned by the Tribunal once a while back since I had to leave many games, so I got banned for 2 weeks, so it has nothing to do with Tribunal bans.

    ReplyDelete
  156. TOPPLE THEIR FORCES.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Mundo go where he pleased. Mundo not get Baron Icon. Mundo sad but still will go where he pleases!

    ReplyDelete
  158. It means you have to be on a bad santa veigars team :)

    ReplyDelete
  159. This whole conversation's full of win.

    ReplyDelete
  160. i think it is for friendly hounors

    ReplyDelete
  161. You better be sure you know the games.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Spectral FiddlesticksDecember 17, 2012 at 12:30 AM

    you stole my phrase!

    ReplyDelete
  163. A friend of mine has got his icon before he's seen a Bad Santa Veigar. In fact, I was the first one for him.

    ReplyDelete
  164. You get Baron by getting a gift from a friend not giving a gift!!

    ReplyDelete
  165. As for the baron icon, i haven't bought a single of the new holiday skins or anything like that, but i noticed i had the icon after gifting a skin, maybe it comes free after gifting anything to a friend? ._. not sure, may have had it before that happened but you never know

    ReplyDelete
  166. You could not be more wrong even if you tried. =P

    ReplyDelete
  167. Tom meant that if Santa's list is full of bad behaving people one hypothetical Bad Santa's list would be full of good fellas.

    ReplyDelete
