As of August 20, we've launched our sixth arc, Nyroth.
Playable factions: Bilgewater, Ionia, the Shadow Isles, and the Freljord.

Please bear with us as we update this thread and LeagueFactions.net for the new arc.

Declare your allegiance here.
Click the link above to sign up and begin playing!
Signing up does not obligate you to play any particular matches. It simply allows you to start or join a match anytime.
It also won't restrict your ability to fight for any faction you like next time around. Declarations only last until the end of the storyline. When the new arc begins, we'll erase all prior allegiances and have a fresh round of sign-ups.

Factions Site: LeagueFactions.net
If you're not familiar with Factions, visit our site for a quick introduction.

What’s Factions?
Visit LeagueFactions.net for more information.
Factions is a community-powered game mode in which Summoners declare for a faction, such as Noxus or Ionia, and then fight custom-game matches for that faction using faction-specific rosters. (For example, Noxus has Darius, Katarina, and so on.) Anyone can start or join a match at any time. Matches are scored, with adjustments for relative skill levels of the Summoners on each side and the overall strength of the two factions going into the match (upset victories worth more), and the outcomes of matches shape the story arc.

There are some really cool elements to Factions:

  • Community. Factions creates a strong sense of community, especially within a given faction; Summoners have an incentive to work together to devise strategies for using their factions’ rosters to the fullest and coach each other.
  • Player-driven story. Factions combines story and gameplay in a dynamic way.
  • Strategy. The limited rosters give each faction distinct strengths and weaknesses. For example, Demacia and Bandle City are all-in teamfight factions, while Discord and Noxus focus on early-game brawls and assassination and Piltover excels in poke (being nicknamed “Poketover” by Summoners in the first arc). This creates interesting strategic puzzles that you don’t normally find in regular games.
  • Cross-Tier play. Factions gives high- and low-tier Summoners the opportunity to play together in a friendly environment.
Factions began last year. So far, we’ve completed five interconnected storylines, with many thousands of Summoners signing up and over 1000 matches played, including shoutcasted tournament matches to resolve major plot points.


FAQs
So how do I get into a Factions match?
See also the Joining a Match page on LeagueFactions.net.

Anyone can start a match anytime. Every match, from random pick-ups to shoutcasted tourney matches, changes the balance of power between the factions and shapes the storyline.

Although pick-up matches are the mainstay of Factions, we also have Tournaments and Featured Matches every Saturday and Sunday, starting at 12:30 p.m. Pacific.

Disclaimer: The idea of having faction matches dates back at least to Riot's first Noxus v Ionia games. It has subsequently been discussed and proposed in a variety of forms for literally years. This implementation is mine, but the basic idea belongs to Riot and the community.

Ionia says to be careful in the team select, or they'll PWN-Y-A.
