Summoners of the League of Legends! Hear ye and be warned that the Council has decreed that a contest of arms upon that Field of Justice known as Summoner’s Rift shall conclusively resolve the disputes hereafter described.
♦ 28 MARCH, 25 CLE. BANDLE CITY contests the seizure of a ship and her crew, bearing Nyrothian artifacts and bound for the Freljord, by the SHADOW ISLES.
♦ 29 MARCH, 25 CLE. ICATHIA petitions THE COUNCIL to release ownership of the TEMPEST FLATS to the east of the region known as Shurima Desert.
Let the word of the League be as law, lest all the powers of Runeterra arrange themselves against ye. There may be no appeal.
This weekend, we’ll have special Intermission Featured Matches between Bandle City and the Shadow Isles (Saturday, March 28) and between Icathia (the Void) and Shurima (Sunday, March 29). As these are Intermission matches, anyone is free to put their name in the hat for either or both factions on each day. We’ll be using the Intermission Champion rosters. (These rosters tend to be much more lenient and broad than one would find during an arc.)
Anyone, regardless of skill level, may sign up. The sign-up forms are below, after the descriptions of each dispute. Teams will be randomly selected. We use ranked tiers to roughly balance the teams for the sake of fairness.
What are they fighting for? A Bandle City ship on its way from Nyroth to the Freljord, to deliver artifacts relating to Lanpoa, was captured by the Shadow Isles. The League generally avoids becoming involved in conflicts on the high seas, but in this case Bandle City claims the Nyroth peace edict still applies. If Mordekaiser gets his way, that captured ship will likely set sail straight for Daeyux. Meanwhile, perhaps sensing that Shurima might not be a mere “League territory” much longer, Icathia demands that the League turn over control of the Tempest Flats. Certain members of the Council objected, and Azir has gathered a team of Champions to represent the Council’s claims on the Fields.
Sign-up links are posted below for each set of matches. We will be rank-balancing the teams as usual. Once we decide on which tiers to use for each match, we will randomly select Summoners to fill those spots.
Matches will begin at 12:30 p.m. Pacific (1:30 Mountain, 2:30 Central, 3:30 Eastern) on each day, and there will be three matches per day. These matches will be held on the NA server.
Matches will be streamed at twitch.tv/LeagueFactions.
Matches will be conducted using Intermission Champion lists.
