Champion Rotation Schedule Announced!
 
Champion Rotation Lineup
Like all good things, the launch celebration has to come to an end. Once we have the store up our plan is to have a rotating set of 10 champions free at all time. Our goal is to give new players some great starting champions to play with, and to give players a chance to try out champions without having to unlock them. To meet our first goal (great starting champions), we’ve tried to create a list of champions that have a number of Melee, Ranged, Tank, Support and Mages in each grouping of ten.

Here is what we are thinking for our rotating champion schedule:


Week One
Code:

Champion        Type
--------------------------------
Jax                Melee DPS
Ashe                Ranged DPS
Corki                Mage
Taric                Support
Heimerdinger        Support
Master Yi        Melee DPS
Ryze                Mage
Sion                Tank
Blitzcrank        Tank
Warwick                Melee DPS

Week Two
Code:

Champion        Type
--------------------------------
Annie                Mage
Ashe                Ranged DPS
Zilean                Support
Katarina        Melee DPS
Gangplank        Melee DPS
Ryze                Mage
Singed                Tank
Teemo                Ranged DPS
Blitzcrank        Tank
TBD                Melee DPS


Week Three
Code:

Champion        Type
--------------------------------
Jax                Melee DPS
Morgana                Support
Fiddlesticks        Mage
Kayle                Tank
Master Yi        Melee DPS
Alistar                Tank
Tristana        Ranged DPS
Twitch                Ranged DPS
Yeti                Tank
TBD                Melee DPS

Week Four
Code:

Champion        Type
--------------------------------
Fiddlesticks        Mage
Taric                Support
Kayle                Tank
Malphite        Melee DPS
Nassus                Melee DPS
Veigar                Mage
Sion                Tank
Sivir                Ranged DPS
Soraka                Support
TBD                Tank

If your favorite champion isn't on the list, you can always unlock them by playing, or with Riot Points.

Q: How much do these overlap with the Collector's Pack? How much will these champions cost?
We can't announce the final pricing yet, but I can show you whether the champion will be priced as Heroic, Epic, or Legendary (with Heroic champions costing the fewest Influence Points or Riot Points to unlock).

Number of Champions:

Code:


Type                                Week 1        Week 2        Week 3        Week 4
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Mage                                  2          2          1          2
Tank                                  2          2          3          3
Melee DPS                          3          3          3          2
Support                                  2          1          1          2
Ranged DPS                          1          2          2          1

Collector's Pack Overlap          2          4          5          6
Heroic                                  3          3          3          3
Epic                                  4          3          5          6
Legendary                          3          3          1          0

Q: Why do different champions need different amounts of Influence Points to unlock?
We felt that some champions that were straightforward to play should be able to be unlocked early (we called them Heroic). There were also some champions that we felt were especially fun to play or required a lot of skill to use which require more Riot Points or Influence Points to unlock (these are Legendary champions).

Q: What about the TBD champions?
Well, we’re working on a few champions here at Riot Games, but we’re not ready to announce them yet. We also won’t release a champion that isn’t finished or could benefit with even more refinement. However, we would like to get new champions into the rotation once they are finished, so we’re saving a spot for them.

Q: This would be better if you swapped my favorite champion in and took out this other champion.
That’s not really a question - but if you do have suggestions on how to improve the rotation we can still make changes to the lineup. But please do suggest who you’d like to swap out in order to add another champion so other people can react to who would be missing as well. We’ll read this thread.

Q: When is week one?
At the moment we’re measuring reactions to the launch celebration and working on making a great store. Week one will be the first week with the store, and our aim is to announce the launch of the store soon.

Wait, so the store launch isn't when you originally announced it would be?

MajorX17 11-09-2009 11:13 AM

Thanks for giving us some info. Only one tank on week two, though?

Zareidriel 11-09-2009 11:14 AM

Awesome. Can't wait to start hoarding champs and runes.

Where is that at? I see numbers but have no clue which is which...

My guess would be the 17th or sooner. I hope it's not any later! :(

L0CUST 11-09-2009 11:24 AM

Corki is a Mage? Huh..

Kromdor 11-09-2009 11:35 AM

Can we get a price range at least?

Clarifications
 
I don't quite understand the table of the overlapping heroes? If someone could explain it to me, I would greatly appreciate it.

Also, I don't see a Jesse Perring in the Champion rotation? Is that simply because Jesse Perring doesn't get rotated, He does the rotating?
