This thread is a historical record of which champions went on sale when. It is a continuation of a thread originally posted by the summoner Eat Orange

Modern era explanation
the modern era of sales is a slightly arbitrary distinction on my part. prior to the point that i have indicated is the start of the modern era, sales were slightly more erratic in number of champions featured and length of time, although most typically they occurred once a week. since then, a consistent rotation of two sales per week featuring three champions each has clearly emerged. while in the modern era there have also been additional sales not conforming to this schedule -- typically bundles for champion or skin releases -- the schedule has persisted. while there appear to be no plans to change the schedule on which sales are presented, this may be subject to change at riot's whim, as with much else in this game.

Predictions for future sales:

i predict the following champions to go on sale soon. more specifically, i do not necessarily believe that each individual champions will be on sale in a timely fashion, but that the next champions to go on sale will probably be among the following. those at the top of the list are more likely to go on sale soon than those at the bottom. champions costing 450 IP do not go on sale in the modern era of sales.

the primary factor determining when a champion will next be on sale is how recently they were previously on sale. i think champions' cost also used to slightly determined how frequently they went on sale, but this appears to no longer be true. champions tend to first go on sale around 2-3 months following their initial release. the following is a list of 3150, 4800, and 6300 champions that i expect to comprise upcoming sales:
  • KARTHUS
  • NIDALEE

The following is a list of 1350 champions I expect to comprise upcoming sales. Note that Alistar and Tristana have not been featured in any NA sales for quite a long time.
  • SINGED
  • TWISTED FATE
  • TRYNDAMERE
  • JANNA
  • VEIGAR

[the following information is here primarily for my records]: on september 1 2012, the brazilian server featured alistar in a sale. on the NA servers, shen was featured instead.

Timing

Remember that 11:59:59.99999..... PM Monday == 12 AM Tuesday

In the modern era, champions go on sale starting on Tuesdays and Fridays at 12 AM PST (2 AM CST, 3 AM EST, 8 AM GMT, etc). All sales end approximately 96 hours after they begin; that is, sales beginning on Tuesday at 12 AM PST will end on Friday at 11:59 PM PST, and sales beginning on Friday at 12 AM PST will end on Monday at 11:59 PM PST. Note that the bi-weekly sales overlap on Fridays; champions and skins from both sales of the week are available on Fridays.

All times are give or take a few minutes, and of course subject to change on a whim if Riot decides to change them.

FAQ and other tidbits of knowledge
When are sales announced?
Typically sales are announced the day before the sale. Most of the exceptions to this rule were back when each sale came complete with a riot-written story which was time consuming to write.

What are the RP prices for champions on sale?
RP prices for modern-era rotating champion sales are 50% the cost of the champion in most circumstances. The most common exceptions are for specific promotional events.

What are bundle sales?
Recently (starting in summer 2013) Riot has offered skin and champion bundle sales costing RP, with several (usually thematically related) champions or skins available at a percentage discount. Many of these discounts are considerably less than 50% (so that champions are discounted only around 20%, or 25%, or whatever, of their original price). These bundles usually include both champions and skins, though the RP cost is reduced if you already own some of the champions and/or skins in the bundle. I do not know of anyplace where these sales have been recorded for history.

OMG Riot is so cheap, they would never put 3 6300 IP champions on sale at once.
False. The earliest instance was on June 8, 2012 when Fiora, Nocturne, and Kog'Maw (who were all 6300 IP at the time) were all on sale.

OMG Riot is so cheap, they only put champions on sale that they are going to nerf.
I can't 100% prove it, but I am 99.9999% sure this is false. I have observed no correlation whatsoever between sales and upcoming changes. In the past there was a tendency to avoid placing champions on sale that were underplayed and/or had major reworks coming (most notably in the cases of Evelynn and Karma). But I think this is a thing of the past.

Are free week champions featured in sales?
I do not keep track of free week champions at all, but the answer is yes. The earliest example that I classify as modern era is Nocturne who was on sale on March 23, 2012 and also on free week.

Thanks for updating the sales list. With a new sale every 3-4 days that other thread is getting out of date quickly.

I like how the Predictions section looks like you stuck the ALLCAPS function on it either once or twice after you finished writing.

its formatted for my wiki page, where it looks appropriate. i didn't bother to change the formatting. maybe if this thread is closely followed i will take the time to do it a bit better.

i think in general riot is getting better recently at moving champions on sale in a more consistent rotation, but yes in the past it has been very erratic.
