The reason some champions appear more often than others is that they are decent champions for new players to pick up. The free roster was what enabled me when I first started to try champions and see which ones I wanted as when you first start, the large array of champions can be overwhelming.
Long story short, if you're a long time player of LoL, chances are these rosters aren't aimed at you.
These rosters got me started. I'm glad the price range mix is there...helps you try out some of the expensive ones you want to save for or pick up a cheap one you hadn't tried yet but have now because of the rotation.
Someone else said something like "Why not spend the $50 to buy these champs..." or "you can get these from ~4 losses worth of IP..."
I say, speak from experience, not all kids (or their parrents) have that kind of money to throw around on a game...and not all adults have time to lose ~12 games (3 champs x 4 losses) to unlock characters... We all have budgets, busy schedules and besides...who here hasn't bought a champ and found you didn't like the play style...Syndra anyone?
Gotta have some beginner champs to bring new blood into the game/community. Thats what it's all about. Sharing the LoL spirit and an enjoying the game.
