this is the only thing that i personally see as the only problem...

imo i think New/Upcoming Champs should always be free the week they are released
for the simple reason of balance...

i mean think about it, lets say udyr wasn't free the week he was released that means only a few who either had extra IP and or bought him with RP would have played him, and thus

only a small portion of the community would have been able to give feed back on him...

cause i mean lets face it only reason udyr was even brought up was because he was free the week he was released and a ton of players played him and gave the feedback on him,


just my 2 cents on the subject =p


This would be good, except for the people who buy the champions right off the bat. People would be racing to use those free champs, and as I would imagine wouldn't often get to play their newly purchased champions. Just a matter of conflict.

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).

I would enjoy free character release based on their connecting story lines.

Well, i do have the stats, so let me tell you that almost 30% of the free to play champions are the 6300 ip champions and 8% are 4800 ip champions... knowing that they must make easy champios free to play... and the easyiest champions are usually the 450 ip champions... i think this is a good number...

About Urgot and Malzahar... Urgot has been free to play 4 times this season (The last time was two weeks ago), and Malzahar twice...

Just saying...

good 2 know thx

They should keep Ashe, Garen, and Ryze tbh. I mean they're in the tutorial, how would it feel to use a character there, get somewhat familiar with it, then go into a match and have none of them to choose from?

Firstly, im quite new to LoL,

but i dont like to see heroes i already own free for the week.

it infact can feel like I'm being cheated out of a week of free champions

perhaps its possible to have a larger free champ base (say 20) each week, instead of 10?

i would agree that 20 is far to many free champions to release every week however.
so choose say 5 - 10, and if a player already owns them, it starts picking from the reserve 10 - 15 ?

it would also seem to me that a player could potentially try an additional 10 champions in a week if they liked and bought all the first 10.

the largest problem/criticism i could see with a system like this, is new players buying hero's they dont know how to play well. it would seem to me that would only encourage people to take more advice from the people they play with to become better at them.

in conclusion something like this would not outright solve my problem of champions being selected which i already own, but could seriously reduce it.
