I would like to have the new champions free because that was people could tryout the champion before they buy then rather that buy the champion and then regret the choice, i would rather not have people waste there money or refunds.

I've been saving up for Nami, currently about 4.8kish IP. I would like to try her before I spend 6300 on her. Slap her onto the next rotation?

Just started playing about a week ago and love the fact that I can try out the champs before I decide if I want to play them full time. Hopefully Cassiopeia will be available before too long as she looks interesting. I have really enjoyed the game so far, keep up the good work!

Have you thought about just making a new champion available free in just bot games or maybe on twisted treeline? it would allow players who are seriously considering buying a specific champ when it first comes out. versus waiting a week for the price to go down. that tease may entice someone to spending a little extra.

It would be nice if the champion rotations were just in order.
It would also be good if new champions were free the week after.

Im new and need to know this could happen: Have the champions that are affordable and cheap for new players (like me) so we can test them out and see if we should buy them

I mean that would be really helpful for us so we dont waste ip on champions we dont like and find that out AFTER buying, like I recently bought karthus but i fail at squishy mages and him I thought his ultimate was cool but didnt understand him so i wasted 3150 ip!

What i really want is to have champions that are easy to learn and play AND can be affordable after we play with them so we can buy!
