Lmfao why is there always a comment with over -30 in every thread? For major ones, its around 200-500 but for this one, its unbelieveable with OVER SEVEN HUNDRED!!

New champs should be added to the list for the week they are rotated. so everyone gets a chance to try them before they buy them, i bought leblanc/caitlyn/renekton and dont really like any of them. thats a waisted $20 right there lol but other then that the game is awesome! keep up the good work! <3

The only pattern I'd like to see, aside from the general minimum of 1 support, 1 tank, 1 mage, 1 phys dps, 1 jungler. Is to have maybe 1 medium difficulty, and 1 hard to use champion as well each week.

Just wanted to say that I really wish RIOT would put some new 6300 IP champs into the mix. I've been playing LoL for a couple months and I have yet to play a TON of champs that I'm considering purchasing w/ RP, but I won't know until I get to try them out. Please give us Ezreal and Malzahar!

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
well Riot! in itself is also a business, so remember they have to get persons to use Riot points to purchase content and by doing so, keep the game running. So although at times i DO think they should be free, the new champs are a way of keeping the game running :/

I figure the week they come out is like the time where people buy them and use them then other people see them tested and just try them out the week after. Pretty much every champ in the past while has been on the rotation the week after they come out. I mean Udyr was a long time ago if you think about it...

I keep seeing the same champs in the rotation, even though you say that you try to make them even characters, i think you should also try to get in the less frequent ones in for a quick week. (ie. i havent seen kass or sona in a while)

i think you should have also just for fun, OP weeks and UP weeks.

FFS Riot.

Stop putting Zilean, Ashe, and Heimerdinger in the rotation just because they're easy.

Every other week you're going to see one of them, that makes the usual rotation 7 champions.
