From the FAQ:

FAQ — Why only four factions? What about Zaun? The Shadow Isles? Bandle City?
The danger of launching with a large number of factions is that players will be too spread out. So I wrote up every faction I could think of (I went through the alphabetical champ list and assigned everyone) and held a community poll. The four winning factions were Demacia, Ionia, Noxus, and Piltover, so those are the four we're starting with.

On May 1, I'll conclude the current campaign ("Mirrorwater") and hold a new poll to decide on the 5th faction. Then, the members of the winning faction from Mirrorwater will get a second, internal vote to add a 6th faction. When these new factions are added, I'll create a new scenario and give everyone a chance to declare a new allegiance if they want to do so.

Can't wait until May 1? I also have a standing recruitment challenge. We're at about 1300 Summoners right now. If we can get up to 2000 Summoners substantially before May 1, I'll hold a poll to add a 5th faction right on the spot.


FAQ — Can we change factions if new factions are introduced?
Yes. When a new faction is introduced, everyone will be given a chance to change allegiances to whatever faction (new or old) they want.
The Shadow Isles was one option in that original community poll, but it didn't quite make it to the top 4. It'll get another chance on May 1.

In the meantime, you can sign up for one of the four existing factions; you'll have a chance to change when new factions are introduced.

As for why I was such a killjoy and didn't launch with all the factions, I think it's important that people be able to find games pretty much 24/7. As the playerbase expands, we can afford to add more factions.
