Where-as some equally challenging champs (Blitzcrank and Janna to name a few) have been F2P up to 10 times or more. Riot; stealth champs need some love, in more ways than one...

Even though these champs have a "steep learning curve" you would think there would be more than 12 instances in the entire game where one of these champs saw any action. Granted it will also allow smurfers to pubstomp with these champions a lot easier, but on the bright side it forces new players into the habit buying Oracles to counter them. I for one would rather have a new player learning about Oracles around lvl 5ish as opposed to 15+. I've seen lvl 30's who rage about stealth champs, and lo-and-behold they're never once bought an Oracles Elixer
.
If you look at the chart you will see that Shaco, Evelynn, and Twitch all have yet to see the light of day in Season 1.
You probably wanna play them but and are too cheap to buy them. But oh well, you can feed like everyone else on the first few days of free week.

Yes but by making these characters free, people will actually be forced to ward thus making everyone's gameplay a lot better. For newcomers this teaches them an extremely important aspect for the game at earlier levels, so they aren't stuck in "elo hell" when they first learn how to ward.

Champions like shaco,evelynn or twitch are good champions but the problem isnt there

These champions are REALLY strong in low elo and low lvls and it makes the low players mad and all

They put free champions not according to high elo only,but more likely low elo

I don't believe they would learn from the experience. At least not faster than the rate at which they would be totally turned off from the game.
