Several controversial champions

September 13 free champion rotation includes Yasuo, Master Yi, and more

  • A new free-to-play champion rotation is out in LoL
  • Including Yasuo, Master Yi, and much more
  • 13 skins are also on sale for this week

League of Legends is making a weekly rotation to the free-to-play champions and launching new skin sales in the shop, and it is the case once again on Sep. 13, 2022. For this week, the free champion rotation seems pretty controversial. 

For a game with more than 160 champions and god knows how many skins, it’s important that a free champion rotation and exclusive sales are consistently available. Riot Games handle this by rotating 15 free-to-play champions every week. Meanwhile, they also dish out deals every week where players can catch skins on sale. 

As of September 13, 16 new champions entered the free-to-play rotation. This week’s rotation includes some fan favorites that will undoubtedly be tried out by newer players. The most notable example is Yasuo, who is known as a champion people either love to play or absolutely hate to play against. Sometimes even both.

All free League of Legends champions from September 13

  • Aurelion Sol
  • Cassiopeia
  • Darius
  • Ezreal
  • Galio
  • Gnar
  • Kayn
  • Kindred
  • Lux
  • Malphite
  • Master Yi
  • Taliyah
  • Twisted Fate
  • Viktor
  • Yasuo
  • Yorick

Let’s stay with Yasuo for a bit, as he could be the one that most people will pick up during this rotation. Yasuo is one of the biggest playmakers in the game, something that makes up for entertaining gameplay but also challenges when trying to master him. 

For new players, they might be surprised how hard Yasuo can be to play but also how rewarding he is when you get the hang of him. He is currently viable in top, mid, and bot lane, so there are plenty of opportunities to try him around the map. 

While all champions rotate in the free-to-play pool, Yasuo is one where Riot might hold their breath for the week that he is available. It’s well-known that Yasuo is a champion that can cause a lot of frustration in a game and that might spike in the upcoming week (not to speak about 0/20 power spikes). With that said, you should enjoy him as long as he is free.

If you’re not ready to pick the Unforgiven quite yet, there are other great opportunities for playmaking in this rotation. Both Malphite and Gnar have the ability to impact team fights heavily while Taliyah and Twisted Fate are great roaming options for the mid-lane. 

As for the most viable in the current meta, Cassiopeia is the one rocking the highest win rates. She is currently winning 53.65% of all games in the top lane in Platinum ranks and above. If you are in the lower ranks, then Master Yi is always a solid choice.
