i also bought twitch (6.3k ip omg) a couple weeks ago and am appalled at the number of bad twitches out there haha (along with blitz which i bought too with ip)
I wouldn't mind seeing Nidalee on rotation again myself. She was the first champ that I bought and also my favorite but she is pretty underplayed in my bracket. I like VSing champs that I play to learn new tricks.

why is handpicking a problem to so many people? i think its the only way to go. if every game you play has a twitch in it, then why have him available in a free week? these are the types of things a random selection cant account for. player feedback on which champions theyd like to try is the only way to go.

keep in mind, theres 10 champs each week. theres a little over 50 champs. so it takes a little over a month to see them all. if you bought the game, even less than that. or you could just drop 35 bucks and get them all but 3 and not worry about which ones are free each week.

i wish we could see the stats of people who say the weekly selection method sucks. i bet >90% of their games are with one champ. its also annoying to hear people talk about losing pugs with people who suck trying out new characters when the most likely reason they lost is because they suck with their "main". get over yourselves, youre going to lose some games.

riot, keep hand picking the weekly champs based on community feedback. its the only way to go. why does my opinion matter? because the weekly free champion list doesnt apply to me.
I think what he meant was more like an AR in Dota, not about the random rotation switch, but I can be wrong

I only started playing about 2 days ago and mainly only playing bot matches just to learn the characters, and I have already gotten plenty of IP to purchase NUNU. Granted NUNU is only 450 IP, but I like how that character plays and want to know how to play him better. What you purpose is an interesting idea but I doubt that they would implement it full time.

I really wanted to try malphite do you think he could show up in week twelves rotation? I think hes only showed up twice so far, and I didn't get to use him. I want to try him out before I buy him. i looked through the list and blitz is going to be showing up for the 4th time if he comes out on week twelve and malphite only twice so far and they are both tanks so could they be swapped?

It'd be really nice if Malphite was free. Also even if you want the testing on the new heroes i'd recamend only let gragas be free because im sure patheon will be op and that you'll want people to buy him and do there own testing where if he's free and op he'll disrupt a whole week (or a few days of gaming). Just my personal take (Gragas doesn't sound 2 op but his ulti might need a nerf on the knock back range.

I think it's too much focus on new heroes and too little focus on new maps.

Getting pretty tired of Summoner's Rift..

I've been reading alot of posts of people complaining about free champion selection and champ prices, ect. Unless you haven't realized, Riot is running a buisness. If you want to play certain champions, BUY THEM. Stop complaining about which ones are on rotation that week. Save yourself up some allowance money, and BUY something. Riot provides a FREE game for us to play, but we should be SUPPORTING them by PURCHASING things. And i'm not talking about your free IP points. BUY some riot points and PURCHASE something already! And stop complaining.
