Factions is built around matches fought between factions (such as Demacia or Noxus) using faction-specific Champion lists. In ordinary disputes, any faction may hire any Summoner or Champion who is willing; indeed, they may not know the identity of their employer until the match is complete, to further ensure impartiality. But there are some clashes of nations of such import that partiality must be openly acknowledged. In such disputes, Champions and Summoners swear allegiance to a particular faction for the course of the dispute, striving on their behalf both on the Fields of Justice and beyond.
While we try to stick close to Riot and Factions lore for our roster explanations, in some cases we’ve bent the rules a little for the sake of playability. In our defense, most of these Champions are rather unstable and (shall we say) willful personalities, making any argument of the form “Champion C would NEVER fight for Faction F!” intrinsically suspect.
Full rosters follow. For each faction, we’ve listed their current rosters, as well as the Champions they can recruit as the arc progresses. You can also access the PDF roster.
