Now on to what I was going to post... I thought new champions were free the second week after they're out? Anyone have a clue why Talon isn't in the rotation?
Galio at one point was practically never free, He was one of the last champions i ever got to see in game (and trundle) when i was newer. But not recently, check the free week history, Galio and Malphite have appeared 3 or 4 times this past summer alone. How many times have we seen twitch? He hasn't been free since March...
And to answer your question, my assumption is that they're putting talon off til the new champ comes out, they normally save it so when the new champion is released the previous new champion can be played as well. I think they've done it before too with Yorick/Leona or somebody like that
