I know it says its supposed to be a measure of how hard a character is to learn, but Aviana says shes hard to learn but I do better with then with some easy champs. How is it decided? It seems like an interesting concept, anyway.

It is a good guideline for the most part, especially for newer players. I remember Kassadin was the first champ I touched and I got rocked...

I played Tristana afterwords, moved to Jax, then went back to try Kassadin who is now my favorite champion.

And I own with him! It's just a matter of people getting used to the mechanics of the game before they can grasp champions with more situation, and "complicated" abilities.

Difficulty = How easy it is for newer players to pick the champion up and play.
