Long story short, if you're a long time player of LoL, chances are these rosters aren't aimed at you.
Thank you for saying this. If you plan on playing this game a very long time, what's the harm in spending anywhere near the 50$ you spend on other games, on this game. Just gotta do it one time for all the champions that you people get angry if they aren't free every week.

However, seeing Ashe, Ryze, Sivir and Taric over and over again is getting old, each of those champions can be bought with 4 losing games of IP.

Only one I haven't tried here is Syndra. Glad I bought Naut on sale long time ago because then I would of had waited for weeks for this rotation. I don't regret buying Naut
Cassiopeia, Karma, Malzahar, Nidalee, Shaco, and Yorick are the only champs I haven't played yet, so they haven't appeared in over...three-four months (the time I had been playing LoL). I guess Riot forgot about Karma

These rosters got me started. I'm glad the price range mix is there...helps you try out some of the expensive ones you want to save for or pick up a cheap one you hadn't tried yet but have now because of the rotation.

Someone else said something like "Why not spend the $50 to buy these champs..." or "you can get these from ~4 losses worth of IP..."

I say, speak from experience, not all kids (or their parrents) have that kind of money to throw around on a game...and not all adults have time to lose ~12 games (3 champs x 4 losses) to unlock characters... We all have budgets, busy schedules and besides...who here hasn't bought a champ and found you didn't like the play style...Syndra anyone?

Gotta have some beginner champs to bring new blood into the game/community. Thats what it's all about. Sharing the LoL spirit and an enjoying the game.

Yet another average rotation. I'm not gonna complain though, rotation are meant to address to new players mostly.

Shaco is fun and not expensive.Ive seen shaco's tht dominate a game and shaco's tht caused my enemy to lose.(he was on thier team) So im glad ur w8ing cuz u could suck with him and u buy him and u waste 1 of ur refunds.. (no ofense)
