this is the only thing that i personally see as the only problem...

imo i think New/Upcoming Champs should always be free the week they are released
for the simple reason of balance...

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


And where do you expect Riot to be making their money then? :L

I hate to ask, but have you considered 'themed' weeks? Like ninjas and pirates or animalistic? Themed champion rotations (towards appearances and such, not play styles since that'd counter the 'diverse' thing) could give people more interest in the backgrounds since themes would bring more interest in origins and the like, bringing in more diehard fans as well as give people better ways to say 'hey, ____ week was really interesting' instead of 'week 12' 'Which one was that?'

Admittedly earlier in the league's history it wouldn't have been a good idea, but now that there's such a diverse array of champions, it'd be interesting, and very doable. Kinda a fun idea to toy with for possible rotations.


+1 to you good sir
