Is a free Champion weekend actually a reward? We've heard a couple people complaining about players messing up games by playing with Champions they don't know, but we've also heard it was awesome to play with Champions you don't know.

What do you think? If people don't like them we will do something else cool to celebrate winning awards.

Make them all free in practice or normal games but never let them in ranked until a certain amount of games played.

Good idea... I enjoyed testing out a few champions. Admittedly, though, I didn't touch ranked games, and I failed at Pantheon. Galio was fun, planning on buying him soon. ^^

It's not really all that different then having a few free champions. Really, I don't think that it would be a horrible idea to give anybody 1 free game of any champion once a month.

Edit: Lamp :3

good, but I think people would rather enjoy a "double IP" weekend or something similar, so that they can buy the champions they want rather than only have them for a few days.

I think it should be free in Normal games, but not in Ranked games.

I think it's a good idea to give people the opportunity to try out new heroes. It also makes all random and all mid games more random too. xD

Too many people playing champs with no idea whatsoever how to play them... Bads will be bads. Free champ weekend was ok other than that.
