This Saturday, March 8, 2014, Factions will be holding another set of our Saturday Featured Matches. These matches will be worth extra points relative to ordinary pick-up matches. They will be shoutcasted by LoL Tourneys.

To sign up for these matches, use this Google Form and then post in this thread to confirm that you own the account you've signed up.

These matches will be conducted as "rainbow" matches. Each team will have one space for a Diamond/Challenger Summoner, one space for a Platinum Summoner, one space for a Gold Summoner, one space for a Silver Summoner, and one space for a Bronze/unranked Summoner.

The first match will begin on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Pacific (1:30 Mountain, 2:30 Central, 3:30 Eastern). The second match will begin an hour later, and the third match an hour after that. They will presumably be streamed at twitch.tv/loltourneys, though we may cast them on my channel (twitch.tv/cupcaketraplol) if the main loltourneys stream is busy.

The current (fourth) Factions storyline, Shon-Xan, is drawing to a close on March 24. (At that point, we'll open up a poll to decide which factions face off next.) But there's still plenty of time for your participation in matches to decide whether Noxus or Ionia will ultimately prevail. Will you fight to maintain balance? Or for the right of the strong to take what they must to survive?

tl;dr on the story these matches will affect: Noxian refugees from the Void War have fled to the Ionian island of Shon-Xan, provoking a confrontation between Noxus and Ionia. A contest for control of the island in the League of Legends has exploded into open warfare, with Zaun and Demacia intervening as allies on either side. The League struggles to contain the conflict.

SCHEDULE FOR MARCH 8, 2014
Matches will begin no earlier than the posted start time.

5 minutes after the posted start time, if either team still has spaces open, we will move to the list of subs.

10 minutes after the posted start time, if either team still has spaces open, we will open those spaces up to anyone in the Factions chat who is declared for the appropriate faction. If necessary, teams may fill a space with a Summoner of lower ranking than the space allows (e.g. a Silver may take the Gold or Platinum spot), but may under no circumstances exceed the tier limits (teams may never put a Plat in a Silver space).

15 minutes after the posted start time, if either team still has unfilled spaces, that team forfeits. Exception: if both teams have the same number of unfilled spaces, the match will begin as-is (e.g. 4v4).

RULES
Factions is supposed to be mostly lighthearted fun, but to keep things clean we've developed some rules.

Remakes
Remakes are generally not allowed. There are two main exceptions.
First: If massive server problems are causing a significant number of Summoners to d/c or have unplayable levels of lag, we may call a remake.
Second: Within the first 2 minutes of a game, either team may call a remake if one of their Summoners is involuntarily disconnected or has extremely serious lag issues (e.g. 1000ms). They will have 5 minutes to get a substitute in place. Each team may call a remake only once per match.

Conduct
Anyone who rages, whines, or otherwise behaves in a toxic manner is to be reported by all other Summoners, and may be suspended or expelled from Factions.

More positively: players who go out of their way to be nice, coach their teammates, joke it up in All-Chat, roleplay, and otherwise enhance the experience for other players and viewers will be rewarded with CupcakeTrap's admiration and possibly videos of red pandas being adorable.

Pauses
The /pause function may be used only where necessary due to, e.g., a player's connection problems. It is not to be used for strategic purposes. Each team has a total of 10 minutes of pause time. After that, the team must play on, braving the storms of chrono-thaumic distortion ("lag") as best they can.

Tiers and Scoring
Tier is defined as solo queue Summoner's Rift rank. We use the higher of the Summoner's end-of-Season 3 rank and the Summoner's current rank. Matches will be scored without tier adjusts, but faction standing adjusts will be applied.

Organizer Discretion
The tournament organizers have final say on how to apply these rules, and authority to develop ad hoc rules to address novel situations, in order to ensure fairness.

Crafty attempts by any team to circumvent the letter or spirit of these rules, or to exploit them for unfair advantage, will be rewarded with due appreciation for their cleverness and unreasonably harsh retribution.
