I say a note on the LOL sight saying that the hereos currentlly available will eventually be unavailable and another 10 heroes will become playable without buying them. I was wondering how often they will change. I wouldn't care that much but of the 15 heroes I tried before the store opened all 10 of the ones now have been one that I have tried out.

I believe they'll rotate weekly, probably on fridays. Here's the rotation schedule for the first month.

Spot on, it appears that they'll be on a weekly rotation.

I would recommend buying your favorite champions asap. It will make your life a lot easier.

i noticed that some heroes aren't in the announced current rotation. specifically, anivia, twisted fate, and tyrndamere aren't there anywhere. they're my favorites too.

They only announced the first four weeks. I don't think that those are the only 4 groups that'll be in circulation for the entire lifespan of the game. In other words, I don't think week 5 will be the same champion selection as week 1.

Also, they weren't able to fit all champions into the first 4 weeks because they were more concerned with keeping champions of all roles available each week. In other words, they could put Twisted Fate in one of the first four weeks, but that may mean there would be only 1 tank character that week. So, to ensure teams can be balanced and diverse, some champions couldn't be put in the first 4 weeks.
