Each week six heroes are temporarily unlocked for play in Casual and Private games. If you enjoy playing these heroes and want to unlock them permanently, each hero in this week’s rotation will be available at a 10% ICE discount. Try any of the heroes listed below before unlocking them with Glory or ICE!

 

SAMUEL (LANE/MAGE)

Samuel is a dark mage who controls large areas with his abilities. Samuel is able to deal damage on the move, but he may be caught out of position if played too aggressively. He is well suited in the lane, able to bully his victim while draining health and energy to sustain himself.


 

ADAGIO (ROAM/PROTECTOR)

The master manipulator of large-scale battles, Adagio brings incredible teamfight presence with huge area-of-effect damage and team-saving abilities. He almost seems too good: He can heal. He can amplify damage. He can stun and nuke the entire enemy team … but none of these can be achieved easily without team-wide coordination. Adagio is extremely flexible and can start as laner, jungler or roamer.


 

GLAIVE (JUNGLE/WARRIOR)

Glaive has one of the most feared abilities in the game: a jet-powered Afterburn strike that will slice through you and blast you back into a tactically fatal position. In teamfights, Glaive’s area-of-effect cleave and Bloodsong lifesteal makes him incredibly hard to bring down. Try Glaive first as a jungler, but roam into the lane to rocket enemies toward your allies and turrets.


 

SAW (LANE/SNIPER)

SAW has arguably the highest damage potential in the game … but at the huge expense of mobility. Excellent at sieging important locations, SAW zones out entire regions from the enemy team with Suppressing Fire. Try starting him in lane, earn as much gold as possible, then make your presence felt wherever needed.


 

OZO (JUNGLE/WARRIOR)

A carnival monkey never lets silly things like danger and fear keep him from a great time. Ozo runs straight into chaotic fights, bounces off heads and delivers big time area-of-effect damage with his razor-sharp ring. Build some defense items to keep Ozo in combat, and look for combinations of nearby enemies to maximize Ozo’s damage.


 

RINGO (LANE/SNIPER)

Ringo is often played as the primary damage dealer for his team. He can shoot at blinding speeds and finish off fleeing enemies with an epic fireball that follows foes across the battlefield. Incredibly weak in the early game, Ringo players should focus on earning as much gold as possible in the lane before picking big fights.


ABOUT THE FREE HERO ROTATION

The free hero rotation unlocks six heroes each week to play as long and as much as you want in the Casual queue. It’s an opportunity to test drive heroes before using ICE or Glory to unlock them.

The free rotation changes every Tuesday and heroes in the rotation usually won’t return for a few weeks or months afterward, so unlocking heroes is always worthwhile. The free rotation does not apply to Ranked play to ensure players are already very familiar with the heroes they play in that try-hard environment with skill tiers at stake.
