I do want to clarify my post, though. You guys actually did exactly what I just suggested in this week's rotation, so far as I can tell, so I don't want to sound like I'm not even reading up on things. I think changing up drastically like you did this week is a really good approach.

What pattern would you like to see? We're always open to constructive feedback.

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).

- RiotChris


Simple pattern I'd like to see is each champ be free every 6 weeks, yes some champs can be free more often than others, but at least once every 6 weeks a champ should be free,

why? because it takes a while to farm 6300 IP, averaging 100 IP a game, 63 games, approx 40 minutes to get in, play and finish per game (including queue time) means 42 hours to farm 100 IP if you play 8 games a week, that puts you at 5 1/4 weeks to farm the IP necessary so you can play a champ for free, decide you want them, farm them, buy them and have a weekish before they're free again

Fun? Lets make a champ who will say"there can be only one" and everyone else (including friendly champs) will die. That will be "fun"

So there's no pattern to it? It's all completely random?


There is a pattern in the sense of you will never see 10 of the same hero type in the free champions bundle.
Tho' it would be funny to see a tank vs tank match .... or supports )
