New Free Champion Rotation (Season Two: Week 22)By: Zevri posted at Apr 24, 2012 11:42 am
It is a new week summoners, and you know what that means, yep yet another week of free champions for you to try out. Let's not forget the random people who will be trying out champions on your team when they never played them before. Who knows, maybe they do it just to make other people rage, or they fail to realize that they can actually practice these champions in a bot game without needing to make their team lose.
As always I will share who I like for this week and give a few reasons why; Ryze, Sion, Shaco, Nunu, Rammus, Corki, Soraka, Graves, and Ahri. Okay, so this is a week where I actually like most all of the champions, so instead of writing you a novel on why I like these champs, I will skip the ones that I have already covered more than once which is Rammus, Graves, Corki, and Ahri. That narrows it down a bit.
First and foremost, Soraka. I seriously think she is a completely underused champion who is great for DPS and doing some support on the side. I do prefer her as a DPS though because of her Q and E skills. The Q skill has an very short cooldown, easy to spam, and doesn't need to be targeted, you just need to be near the target(s). This allows her to easily kite people and take out even a couple down easily by juking or just outrunning them. Get her set late game with a massive amount of AP? That Q will then rip through people like paper, unless they stack a lot of magic defense.
Ryze is a bit of the same, though he does fairly well without a lot of AP. The major downside for him however is that he is best targeting single champs more than a group, since he can only hold one and while he one skill does bounce, it doesn't really make up for his other skills.
Nunu is a bit of fun, he can slow people down enough to allow his team to catch up, or to just keep slowing them down the lane till their HP burns out. His ult can be rather hard hitting and slows the whole group of enemies caught in it, which can really turn over a team fight, since the other team either tries to get out of it, or stay in and risk taking some heavy damage.
Sion, who doesn't love using that guy? His HP and attack damage are fairly high even without items. You can build him either AP or AD and still fairly viable, and he is just a huge pain to take out. If you have someone who fails with him, they usually do it fairly hard and can ruin a match, though that is kind of rare, since he is fairly easy to use unless he gets heavily countered.
Last but not least, Shaco. While he can go either AD or AP, I am not a huge fan of the AP build Shaco. Won't say it is impossible to do well with him that way, I have seen it done and think it is fully possible, I am just not a fan. He is great at ganking, being able to jump over walls, can fool enemies with his doppelganger, and when fed can do massive amounts of damage. Running from him isn't the greatest either since he does do bonus damage from behind, and can slow you a bit with his shiv.
Alright, so you read my picks and why, what do you guys choose for this week?
