So I'm a new player and this confused the hell out of me and I am sure not gonna throw hundreds of dollars or thousands to buy a pretty graphic.

I'm not gonna throw 5 bucks at a time at a random skin out of 50 or 100...

I'm sorry but you just aren't gonna get money out of people this way unless they are a moronic kid with their parents CC number that never checks the bill.

I would gladly give you 5 bucks a skin for those I want... but instead now you get nothing.

Nice business model for morons.
