The constant changes in League of Legends make the game quite confusing at times. The addition of champions each year makes the oversight of 160 champs almost impossible. Thankfully, Riot introduced the weekly champion rotation, which allows players to test out the champions for free.

Riot Games loans out around 10% of playable champions for free each week. This keeps League of Legends interesting and gives players the opportunity to experiment. Once you hit level 11, you gain access to the free champion rotation. The free champion rotation switches up every single Tuesday, so be prepared to try some new stuff on Summoner's Rift weekly.

You want to know with whom you win every game this patch? Then take a look here:

  • Jhin
  • Kalista
  • Kayle
  • Lissandra
  • Lucian
  • Lux
  • Maokai

  • Seraphine
  • Sett
  • Shaco

This week week is another one with all the Soul Fighter champions being free to play. What does this mean? Of course, it'll mean that we must ban either Shaco or Pyke since they're two of the most obnoxious picks in League of Legends.

There are quite a few other top picks like Lissandra and Lucian on the list that you can pick up and test out without worrying about losing LP since they're very safe.

Who is the best top laner in this free champion rotation? This time it's Aatrox. Aatrox might have been nerfed in LoL Patch 13.15, but he's still a dominant top laner that cannot be reeled in. His healing is insane and the damage output is through the roof. Nothing is more annoying that Aatrox in this meta.

In the jungle this week, Shaco is at your disposal. Not only is Shaco a decent pick with a solid 51% win rate right now, but he's also got the added effect of tilting your opponent in the loading screen already. Not many champions can do that. So, if you're looking to annoy your enemies while also jungling without rules, then Shaco is your pick this week.

As a mid lane pick we can recommend Akshan to you this week. Akshan has silently become one of the best solo queue picks. He's got decent mobility, some invisibility which will go well with your jungle Shaco, and the passive on his W can be crucial in late game fights. Just make sure to stay alive and cash in those kills to revive fallen teammates.

For you ADC Mains, we would recommend Jhin.This pick is always meta. Even if Ashe and Kai'Sa are still strong, Jhin is just a solid pick that you can play in any situation. He's got great scaling, reliable crit damage and one of the best zoning tools thanks to hils ultimate.

Finally, let's move on to the support role. In this free champion rotation, you should choose Rakan. He's a slippery support that can charm enemies, knock them up and shield his allies, all while being pretty tanky. Overall, the best support in the current meta, so don't waste your time on picking someone else.

So, that's it, guys. Try out a few of these unique champions from this champion rotation, and maybe you'll find your new main? Who knows. We'll be back next Tuesday to see who you can try in the next free champion rotation!
