I'm rather pleased with the rotations personally. I've tried a few of the champions that have been in the weekly free ones. I found some I didn't like, but I even found some that I'm looking forward to buying. I'm rather content with how it works now, but I also just came back last week from a long break (can't find my old account).

That way you get the champ feedback fresh for the next work week. Also, since patch/content drops can be Tuesday or Wednesday and you can use that for marketing purposes: " Purchase the new champ with IP or RP and access them before they're rotated in!". Theres my 2 cents
I think this is a great idea, if you are not in marketing you should be man, well put. I would also like to third that new champs would get a lot more attention and quick feedback if you made them free the week they were released, This may even push some players to buy him at the end of that period, enhancing sales for whoever bought him before the free period. you could even make them free in the immediate rotation after the update/rotation after the update rotation, if you don't find a rotation system that works well.

i mean think about it, lets say udyr wasn't free the week he was released that means only a few who either had extra IP and or bought him with RP would have played him, and thus

only a small portion of the community would have been able to give feed back on him...

cause i mean lets face it only reason udyr was even brought up was because he was free the week he was released and a ton of players played him and gave the feedback on him,


just my 2 cents on the subject =p
Excellent point.

I don't know if anyone has posted this but there's a typo in FAQ # 2, where "that" should be changed to "than". I know it's no big deal, but just seems a tad unprofessional the way it is.

"Q Will some Champions be free more often than others?
A Yes, because some Champions are simpler to play that others, and our first goal with the free Champion rotation is to allow new players simple Champions to try for their first games."

When it comes to the weekly champion rotation, I think that it is really good, it shows us the champions that we never would have thought about, thereby allowing us the freedom to play whichever champion that we want.

eventually, i want more of a variety. every week, there are one or two champions i want to try out, and then 2 weeks later, the same champions are available. i understand that these are probably easier to play, but you have to include everyone in the picking of the free champions. so maybe, the next week, please release some champions that are barely seen. thanks!
