The free champions should have a total revamp, I remember my first buys, I tested about 15~20 in the period of a month or more, and the tops in my to-buy list never went free, the result, after about 4 months (back then I was a slow player :P) I had about 18k IP but not a single oportunity to test the champions I wanted to buy. So I buyed w/o testing at all, sucked with 2 of then and basically for a new player, was 16k ip down the drain, and a big, big feeling of disappointment.

The number of champs free is fine, but should have a system where after x anything (time, games, whatever) you could test y champ for z time, or even a rent-a-champion mode, when after some weeks of the release you could rent for a period of time or games by a reduced price.

And with the second part, everyone will be crying "ZOMG RIOT SO GREEDY TROLLOLOLOL" so *shrugs* I don't think it'll work.
The people that have already bought the 450 champs would QQ that they deserve an ip refund because they spent their ip on them) I, personally, don't care but the community has quite a few entitled people in it.

As I said, I knew that the community at large would never go for it. Just putting it out there as my opinion lol

@Agent: I'm mainly trying to change the free champ system, not reduce IP prices. I do believe IP prices are another important topic, but let's try to stay on topic here.

@Miojozord: yeah, this reminds me of one of my friends who I'd convinced to try out the game. He had no idea who to buy, and ended up quitting because he wasted money on people he couldn't play well.

@Swarlito: I agree with your opinion actually, I'm just pointing out why it's not feasible.

Thanks for the support everyone XD

I think all 450s should be excluded from the free week rotation, since they are so incredibly cheap.

Fixes the issue of having them show up and ruin countless players' days in the free week rotation, and there's really no reason to ever wait to buy them if you are even possibly considering buying them.

Free week champs are not allowed in ranked now. I see no reason not to increase the number of free week champs.

It has nothing to do with ranked, please read the OP again (or for the first time if you just read the title and poll options).
