    • 15 champions (approximately 10% of the champion roster) are available to play for free at any given time.
    • The selection process is in fact random, causing some champions to appear more often in rotations than others. Some champions don't even appear in the rotation for an entire season.
    • Each champion group is generally available for one week, starting on Tuesday.
    • Next week's champion rotation generally launches on Monday between 5pm - 10pm PST.
    • New champions are added to the free champion rotation in the third week after launch.
    • The European (EU) rotation is aligned with the United States (USA) rotation.


    • Riot has occasionally changed the rotation date to avoid rotating on US holidays.
      • One such case was on the Labor Day weekend of season 1 (2010), during its ninth week. The rotation shifted forward one day to Tuesday, September 7, causing the rotation for the week to be short, as rotation shifts normally resumed the following week.
    • Champions were sometimes added to the rotation due to special events or to compensate for champions in the rotation that had been temporarily disabled.
    • Poppy and Udyr are the only two champions to go into the champion rotation on the same day they were released.
    • For different reasons, some champions were not included in the cycle for a longer period of time:
      • Some had a serious case of "balancing reasons" Yorick being one of those examples.
      • Some were already available in promotional materials, such as Tristana and Alistar
      • Some had potential reworks coming in, so they were removed before that. Poppy, Sion, Twitch, Evelynn y Karma made this happen before his rework.
    • For some of these eliminated champions, they were also removed from special sales cycles.
    • Historically, champions were added to the rotation after they were released. Once the roster got bigger, its additions to the rotation were delayed a week after its release.
      • Riot Games has stated that their policy is to "allow players to preview all champions eventually", and it is generally understood that new champions are temporarily left out of free rotation out of respect for players who purchased them earlier. .
      • Since the launch of Fiora, new champions are added to the free champion rotation in the third week after launch.
        • Sylas breaks tradition, being in free rotation only after 10 days after launch.
    • In patch V7.16, the number of champions in the free champion rotation increased from 10% to 10% of the maximum roster. With 137 champions at patch time, the number of champions in the free rotation increased by 4 to 14.
    • The format for the champion rotation has changed over time, along with their rankings.
      • From Season 1, Week 33 onwards, the champion classification was changed, with Melee DPS split into Melee DPS and Fighter (melee champions with some survivability). Also, some champions changed types. The champion rotation selected a roster of champions in the following format:
        • 1 or 2  Fighters
        • 1 or 2  Melee
        • 2  Magi
        • 2  Distance
        • 1  Drivers
        • 2  Tanks
      • From season 2, from week 1 onwards, the champion classification was changed, with a name change from  Melee DPS a  Annihilators, and  DPS distance a  Carry. Also, some champions had their type changed. The champion rotation selected a roster of champions in the following format:
        • 1 or 2  Fighters
        • 1 or 2  Annihilators
        • 2  Magi
        • 2  Carries
        • 1  Drivers
        • 2  Tanks
    • Champion rankings are not intended to dictate how the champion is played, but rather to provide a very quick and simple overview of what kind of attributes the champion has, so that players who are new to the character are not overwhelmed. by the question of "What is your general approach to the game".
