I don't know if anyone has done the math on this thread (573 pages is alot to go through) but there are 6 spots every week and 52 weeks in a year so 52 X 6 = 312. So, Riot, it is entirely feasible to incorporate all 109 champions into the free rotation at least once a year. Or are there so many champions that maybe there should be 7 free champions, just a thought. Also, I'd be most appreciative if either Cassiopeia, Ahri, or Kha'Zix showed up sooner rather than later.

It's like Riot has picked out 15-20 of the 109 champs and just continuously rotates through them. Dr. Mundo? Free 4 weeks ago. Cho'Gath? 4 weeks ago. Kog'Maw? Hey, whadd'ya know? 4 weeks ago. Teemo? 4 WEEKS AGO. Really Riot? Really?
Now, let's look at the other end of the spectrum.
Karma? It's been a year Riot. Cass? 7 months. Fiora? Half a year. Oh, what about this one: TRISTANA. 18 MONTHS.
C'mon Riot. You say you want to make it easy on new players, yet you only give new players a very limited amount of champs to try out. And everyone else that plays? Well, every time you want to try out someone new, you have to go and play your heart out to save up IP because you darn well know Riot isn't gonna have them free any time soon.
Black Kitten out.

You realize Tristana is free to get right? Just like them on facebook. Why make a champion you can get for free as a free-to-play champion, taking up a slot for a week when if you want to play her but not buy her you can simply get her for free.

Cass is amazing for a sustained damage mage. In fact, I'd probably say she's the best in that category. Her only real weakness is movespeed, so your positioning needs to be excellent

The only reason why Tristiana is worth having as a free character, is because not everyone has a Facebook

so when you say that one of your main goals is to allow new accounts to form balanced teams, why didnt you include a single ad carry in this week's lineup?

Alistar is also free to get, yet he frequently shows up in the rotation. And as others pointed out, not everyone is on FB. Or you're like me and you like them, yet somehow you never get Trist.
