I don't think your 'option A' is out of the question. But either way, don't hold your breath about getting a red response OP - the more they reveal about the behind the scenes math, the more likely it is that someone can scam/job the system - and they tend to frown on that.

I would be interested in finding out as well, perhaps I can come up with a scenario that could test this with enough iterations...

9 smurfs with only free week champs unlocked, one person with a non free week champ ulocked, see how often he gets it.

Also, if it is the 1:2:2:2:2:1 pick order, then that means that placement in the custom game lobby matters. That is, you are a higher chance of unlocking a champ that noone on your team owns if you're last pick.

In the previous example of 10 smurfs, if you put the smurf with the unlocked champ as first pick on blue side, he would have an equal chance of having any of the 11 champions he owns. And if he was last pick on purple side, he would have a 50% chance of getting the champion he doesn't share with anyone else, and 50% chance of getting one of the 10 free week champs (whichever champ was not picked for the other nine people). This would prove that the 1:2:2:2:2:1 system is used and calculated instantaneously.

If we can wrangle up enough people we can test this.
