Welcome to Intermission Tournaments, where it’s all made up and the points don’t matter.
The fifth Factions storyline, Hextech Revolution, ended on July 13. We’re now in an intermission period until the next arc starts sometime in early August. Just for fun, we’re going to be running Featured Matches every weekend during Intermission. Each weekend will have a theme.
This weekend’s theme: Draft a Faction. We’ve selected three captains, who have each in turn been allowed to select a faction to represent on the Fields.
Standard tournament rules will apply. Factions will use the Intermission Rosters for their Champion lists.
The Shuriman Dispute has concluded. Comes now before the Council Summoner Michelus Magnus, bearing a scroll with seal affixed, upon which are written the parties whose petitions shall next be tried upon the Fields of Justice. May peace endure.
By the endorsement of Summoner Michelus Magnus, the Council now recognizes the following Summoners:
Summoner Imalazor, called The Druid;
Summoner Wexio of Matic;
Summoner 利欲の怒気, which the Council’s scribe has translated as Wrath of Avarice.
Summoners, on whose behalf do you now appear?

Team Lists and Schedule of Matches
The team captains have selected the following three factions: Ionia, the Freljord, and Bilgewater.
Champion lists follow. These are from the Intermission Rosters, and are much more generous than any actual starting rosters would be in a real arc.
Katarina is apparently in charge of the Noxian privateer fleet per an old JoJ issue. The more you know!
