While there are those who have concerns about repeats and 450IP champs in the rotation, keep in mind, the free champ rotation should, Ideally, include champs that someone who JUST started playing can use to get their first few 450 champs, even if you and I have long since picked them up on the grounds of price alone.
Also, there is a good selection of of more expensive champions as well. Notably, Xerath, Hecarim, Viktor are all 6300IP and not for everyone (but fun for some). If I bought one of these (or for that matter, Orianna) and they did not suit my play style, I'd be very disappointed.

Would I, for my personal use, prefer a selection where every champ was at least 3150IP, as I have most if not all of the less expensive champs? Of course, but the free champs are not just for us, they are for those who have under 10 champs plus the freebies, have 450IP burning a hole in their pocket, and can't buy level 3 runes yet.
There ARE champions that seldom if ever show up in the free champion rotation, which I'm not fond of, and some which show up often (though keep in mind, they are there to provide a functional core for those with almost no champs as well as acting as a showroom to sell us the more expensive champs).

Overall, I would say this week's free champion selection has a few champions for most people at every stage of the game (except those who have EVERYTHING already, for whom the entire thing is moot).
Solid enough picks this week, I'd say.
