We will be holding some shoutcasted Featured Matches on Saturday, April 26, beginning at 12:30 p.m. Pacific (3:30 Eastern). These Featured Matches are worth twice the base point value of an ordinary Factions match. The winner of this best-of-three set will have a random chance to unlock a new Champion for their roster.

Today, Piltover will face off against Demacia, as part of the Hextech Revolution storyline. This is a fairly friendly matchup, especially now that Demacia has begun to compromise on the pyrikhos issue.

Here is the schedule, with start times and lineups. Slots listed as OPEN will be filled from the audience.

Each team has slots for Summoners of particular ranks. Rank is defined as the higher of S3 and S4 solo queue SR rank. We use end-of-season rank. Rank slots can be “underfilled”, but never exceeded: for example, you can put a Gold in a Plat or Diamond slot, but you can’t put a Diamond in a Gold slot.

Rules

This is an abbreviated version of the tournament rules.

Points. These matches have twice the base value of normal matches.

Disconnects. Normally, we remake Factions matches if there’s a d/c. This is problematic in a scheduled tournament. As a result, we handle it this way: each team has 5 minutes of pause time. Once that’s used up, the game plays on. Please check your connection before the match: if you d/c, you will likely throw the match for your faction.

Start times. Matches will begin no earlier than the posted times. If there are gaps still on the teams at the posted time, we’ll go to subs. 5 minutes after posted start time, we’ll open it up to the audience. A team with gaps on its roster at 15 minutes past start time forfeits.

Caitlyn, you monster.
