Hi Chris, I would just like to give a suggestion. Maybe you could put a vote box on the League of Legends website so that WE could help in the decision making, but also (to stop anybody from making the same 2 champions free) set out say 24 champs and have 6 tanks, 6 melee dps, 6 ranged dps and 6 supports. Then you could let the people chose who they want as F2P champs and also, to make it a bit easier on you guys, take 1 champ from the 6300 price range, 2 from the 4800 price range, 1 from the 3150 price range and 1 from the 1350 price range for each class (tank, dps etc etc.).

I personally second this idea, although the system itself will take quite a bit of refinement. It's always a fantastic idea to try and involve the community upon which your game relies for funding in the creative process. I think that setting up a thread on the forum to have people give ideas for what this system should include would be a good way to start the process of creating it.

Also you should =probably= always have the 450 IP champs on the rotation so that people can actually buy the champion if they really like it. :V

I like the idea of a regular rotation repeating every 8 weeks or so. But there are just over 100 champions, so do a 10 week rotation through them all. For champions over 100, add 1 to each week, so that some weeks have an extra champion. Also do this for new champions. Once 10 of these extras are reached, wait until the end of the rotation and choose a champion from each of the weeks that have 11. These 10 champions will go to week 11 in the new 11 week rotation. Rinse, wash, repeat.
