In fact, I'm pretty sure there are union-only voice actors who voiced champions in this game (I believe Jamieson Price and Adam Harrington are full union members and aren't allowed to work in non-union environments). Heck, I even tweeted Crispin Freeman (who is also a union-only voice actor) that he should voice a champion in League of Legends and he said he loves to do so.

If anyone asks, voice acting in video games are recorded in a more individual basis instead of doing it in a large group like voice acting in American cartoons. Heck, I would say that the voice acting in League Of Legends is more individualized than any other video games considering the fact that Riot releases a new champion in a periodic basis. I'm guessing Riot would usually ask some random studio to find a voice actor to voice a champion and get it over with it, which gives me another theory that Riot rarely keeps track on who voices who.
Because I know the voices of Karma and Ahri, and they've said that. Most of the cast are lesser known VAs, since that's cheaper for them to do as well.

You mean Danielle McRae and Laura Post respectively?

I'll have to contact either Cristina Vee and Kyle Hebert to double confirm this. I thought video game voice acting is more individual based and the union contract thing is more of an individual basis when it comes to video games.

But I definitely tell you that Jamieson Price is a union member (there is a reason he uses the Taylor Henry pseudonym).

Also, League of Legends definitely needs Sandy Fox and Johnny Yong Bosch to voice champions.

Maybe this is a very minor detail, but I find it interesting.
Just tried out Warring Kingdoms Jarvan IV and he has a new line when casting Cataclysm, yelling "FOR THE KING!"
However the voice saying that line doesn't seem to be from Kyle Herbert, at least the way I hear it.

Bump for front page exposure.
Finding out the voice of your favorite champ is always fun.
