The idea came to me because I'm level 19 and saving all of my ip on runes despite having a lot of champions I want to try. Perhaps there could just be 3-4 trial games that aren't tied to any particular champion? Thus you could split these trials between multiple champions to see which one you like? I feel like this would give a much easier answer to any "Which champion should I buy?" topics. They could simply use their allotted trials to try them out, and then make a decision afterwards.
They give you 400 rp upon reaching level 3, which is enough to make an on-sale champion seem like not that much money. I know it's extremely tempting for me right now with Zyra on sale. If I had a chance to try her, I would spend the money in a heartbeat. It would be similar to a free sample in my opinion. I don't think it would big enough to hurt their business, and could possibly bring in more of it.
Glad to see I'm not the only one who likes the idea though haha.
Make it work like the TF2 weapon trial system and it'd be a brilliant idea. New champs can't be tried out until 2 weeks after release and you can try one champ a week for 7 days and after you get a % discount on said champ.
