Rioter Cactopus announced Wednesday through the League of Legends forums that weekly free champion rotation will increase from 10 to 14, and eventually 15.
“Starting now, there will be 14 champions in the free-to-play rotation going forward,” the Rioter wrote. “Whenever we eventually release our 145th champ, we’ll increase the rotation to 15 free champs (we’re rounding up).”
The weekly free champion rotation is a feature in League of Legends that chooses a number of different champions that can be played by users who don’t own the champions. As all champions aren’t unlocked from the start and must be acquired, this feature has been an opportunity to try out any champions that users haven’t played to see if they’re worth the purchase.
The change comes after some community feedback in the form of a Reddit post that blew up on Tuesday complaining that the current rotation of 10 champions is far too small. The argument was that as the champion list grows (it currently sits at 137), the free champion rotations should also increase.
There have also been cases of certain champions barely being accessible to players who don’t already own them. That trend was made worse when it was known that some champions were missing from the rotation altogether until recently, meaning that it was impossible to try them without purchasing them.
