As such, it has managed to secure a set of matches against Ionia to claim the title of coolest faction. Already other nations of the League are trying to use the fact that Demacia has been given a second chance at the title as reason for them to be given another shot as well.

Due to the low number of sign ups making a schedule would be problematic. Instead staff will look for players who want to play in factions chat at the start time of the games. The players who did sign up will be invited to the games first. The first game will be scheduled at the usual 1 pm Pacific, though the lobby will be made and invites started at roughly 15 minutes before the start time.
