We will be holding some shoutcasted Featured Matches on Saturday, May 24, 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 Bandle City, as part of the Hextech Revolution storyline.

Ziggs will finally be joining the fray!

Ziggs has been sitting on the sidelines up to this point. Well, it’s about time for him to stop eating doughnuts and get on the Fields.

These matches will determine who gains access to a special seam of pyrikhos on the border between Bandle City and Piltover’s field labs. All pyrikhos contains a great deal of chemical and arcane energy, but this pyrikhos is … especially explodey. Until now, the Council has cordoned it off entirely. They have finally relented. Ziggs has very particular interests in the pyrikhos, and has been sitting on the sidelines primarily because he doesn’t want to commit to any faction until he knows which faction can give him access to this stuff.

The winner will take the usual Featured Match prize, and will also pick up Ziggs for their roster.

Schedule

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.

Each team can, once per match, ask staff for a remake if a player disconnects within the first 5 minutes and doesn’t seem likely to come back.

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.
