How we choose weekly free champions

If it's no problem, I would like to see a champion of each attribute being shown as a free champion. At least one assassin, at least one tank, at least one fighter, at least one mage, etc. However, I hope that a bit of variety is given, by showing completely different champions of each attribute each week. For example, showing Fiddlesticks as the jungler for one week then Volibear for the next week. The first has a mage jungler, and the following week has a tank jungler. As for tanks, maybe Leona and Alistar. Very different champions, yet of the same attribute.

This way, new players can find out that all champions are the different even when they are of the same attribute. One tank is completely different from other tanks. A jungler doesn't have to be the same as the other jungers. A fighter can be squishy, or tanky.

Also, having at least one of each attribute will allow players to try out all the attributes every week, before finally deciding on their playing style.

This is already in effect, every role is filled with each week's free rotation.

We listen to player feedback on Champions to make free, and we introduce new Champions on a regular basis. Those two factors make it hard to have a set rotation that repeats every 8 weeks or so (which is I assume what you're implying about a pattern).

Personally I think that a the champion rotation should be very simple champions because if more complicated champions are thrown in for new players things may not go very smoothly such as unintentional feeding.

Pretty sure you guys are picking from what champs have a high win rate and seeing if they need a nerf

I think that in the free rotation you should put 3 things into consideration
1. easy champions- for new guys
2. new champions- to give players an idea of how the new champs play before spending IP
3. underplayed champs- to encourage more variety in champions played

Riot, can you pretty please remove at least one champion from the unpopular list each week? It really is not much to ask and it is ridiculous how long some champions are unseen.
