This is how Riot apparently judges champion popularity and this has something to do with reworks and balance. Really cool charts on champ popularity as a marketing student. The first cross tabulation is really basic but they put some thought into the overall champ popularity graph through all patches.

Any thoughts on the most popular champs and any surprises that you thought were more popular or less popular? Do you think this should be something Riot takes under consideration?

It's a little shocking how many champions they deem unpopular, statistically. Seems like the stats are a little too shallow.
Thinking is overrated. Like Pants.

how is tryndamere "popular"
Why is it called 'common sense' when it is so rare these days?

Can't say I expected Kayn to top the Depth axis. I mean I figured he was popular, but didn't expect him to be that popular.

i want to imagine that our local kayn fanclub president on this board is the sole contributor to that spike tbh

Really? You don't expect League players to just flock to whoever is best at the moment?
A battle between Goku and any Yugioh protagonist ends in an infinite plot armor loop.

i said the depth axis

he's not the most popular champ in terms of most of the playerbase flocking to him (though he's still pretty high up in that respect and not really surprising) but that the people who play him are spamming a lot more games than even your yasuo / riven onetricks that feel like they're everywhere (and yasuo is indeed #2)

They didn't really say what the variables they used were for the main graphs they just said it was a lot of data. I'm curious to know at what exact point a champ is deemed unpopular on the graph. I only briefly got to look at it as I was working on a capstone project for about 8 hours in the library. I'll look it it again and comment back with anything I find tomorrow probably.

Low amount of players playing it and the players who are playing it aren't playing a lot of it. That's what they deem unpopular.
