Intermission Tournament IV — Variety Pack

league-of-legends-pool-party-hd-wallpaper-1920x1080

Ziggs is kind of a jerk.

Welcome to Intermission Tournaments, where it’s all made up and the points don’t matter.

The sixth arc will begin soon™ — most likely within the next week or so. We already know that Bilgewater is in, and I’ll be closing the public poll and announcing the next two contenders this Sunday. (If you haven’t already, please do cast your votes!) But until the next arc starts, we’re going to be running some Intermission matches each weekend. Each weekend has a theme.

This weekend’s theme? A zany assortment of faction matchups, based primarily on my personal whim. I’ve thrown in some lore tidbits for each; some represent actual matches, others more symbolically represent other events. These won’t have a massive story impact, but I’ll try to work the outcomes in.

Blue/Purple assignment will be determined by coin toss.

Stream

Matches will be streamed at twitch.tv/LeagueFactions. VODs will be posted here as matches conclude.

We’d like to gather some community casters to shoutcast and stream these matches. We very strongly prefer casters who have an audition video to share. This could be from a time you’ve casted before, or just a quick Twitch.tv upload from a recent intermission match you cast.

Click here if you’d like to cast or stream.

How To Get On A Team

Sign-up links for each faction are provided below. I’ll randomly create mirrored-rank teams using the signups and post them up here Friday evening. [Update: Teams posted below. However, there will likely be no-shows, so if you’d like to play, try to be there at match time! Team configurations may be altered as necessary, but we’ll try to keep them mirrored.]

You can also just show up at match time:

JoinChatButton-Marked

It’s quite possible that we’ll have last-minute gaps, so if you just show up ready to play, there’s a good chance of being selected.

Rules

We’ll use tournament rules, though we’ll be a bit more flexible seeing as this is just intermission.

For Champion lists, we’ll use the intermission rosters.

Match Three — Ionia vs. Zaun

The extensive use of pyrikhos fuel has drastically increased the amount of pollution coming out of Zaun. Ionia insists they take some environmental mitigation measures. Zaun’s corporations say that if Ionians care so much they should start wearing breath masks.

    Decided against using the Icathia crest for the Void?
    Also, I would come to represent the Void once more, but I’ve got a birthday party to go to. Mine! ^w^
