It's most likely the same as with the Gladiator Draven skin, people that play in that specific region get the skin for free, a week or so afterwards, everyone can buy it around the world.
Seems like a server only. Or maybe free for a server.
But somehow i wouldn't be too suprised for server only
They released the other server celebration skins for all servers, don't see why this one will be different.
I doubt Riot would ever release a skin that can only be obtained on server/region X through their Client.
I know its not fair, but still. Yes everybody should be able to get what they want in the game but still.
How many people bought Karma before she got released for the extra free skin? Nothing unique there.
But what if there are actual unique skins depending on your region, or even for your country?
Nothing wrong with a bit more unique stuff
I don't know. Personally, I'd rather have that not happen.
And why does it matter that much that you want something to be unique? Prestige? Lol.
As long as you like it, it shouldn't matter if it's unique or not.
It doesn't matter to me at all that something has to be unique or not. I would think it's more interesting, thats all.
Just like with the TPA skins. Wouldn't it be more awesome if you go to a event and when you get there you can get a "skin code" card? "Oh i've been there and now i got this card; ill use it for myself or give it to a friend. But either way i got a unique skin that nobody beside those that went there can get.
However, a region wide skin wouldn't make much sense even if you want it to be unique.
It would only exist on the servers of that region.
While the skin would exist and I would know of it, I would never ever see it in my games. Latin American players on the other hand would see it pretty often.
It doesn't matter whether I am able to own it or not (at least to me), but it does matter whether any person on my server can have it.
I think I am doing a bad job explaining this... It's like the green Taric skin. I know it exists and that I can't have it. If I see someone with it, I would think "Oh, he has that skin, awesome".
But if a skin would be only for the Latin American servers, I would never get the chance to see one.
TPA skins are unique yes but not unique in a way that only X people can get it while Y can't.
As for getting those skins that are only available through cards only, those are unique too but they are available to everyone, you just need to spend time and money and you'll get it, eventually.
The kind of unique you were talking about though was unique to just one region, meaning that it wouldn't be possible to get skin X unless you're on that region, I'm pretty much against that since it wouldn't be fair for the other people in other regions.
If you mean other kind of unique skins, those already exist.
I'm not sure about the PAX skins, but i think it was like that yeah.
And yes, you can get ANY skin if you pay enough, but eventually the cards "run out" and the skin will become unavaible unless they do more codes.
Region "unique" skins could be more like EUW; Italy got Gladiator Draven for free; It could be for example the only country that got it.
Or a German Gragas skin. Stuff like that is really unique.
I'm either interpreting unique in a way you aren't or I just don't know.

Do you mean unique as in related to a country or something, like Draven's, Cass' and the incoming Morgana's skin? If you mean that, then yeah, those are pretty neat and should be done more often or when ever possible.

The oktoberfest Gragas can only be bought by German players, Gladiator Draven by Italians. Morgana only for Latin America etc etc. Every country would get a champ with a unique skin.
They are for a region; but still unique then. People still sees them but cannot obtain them. Unique, but perhaps still tradeable or something.
