The current installment of Factions, Shon-Xan (http://leaguefactions.net/current-storyline/), is drawing to a close on March 24, 2014. As usual, we're holding a public vote to decide which factions will be playable in the next storyline. This vote is open to all members of the League community.

If you've never heard of Factions (http://LeagueFactions.net), read on for a quick introduction.

What's Factions?
For a prettier, more in-depth explanation of Factions, visit LeagueFactions.net (http://leaguefactions.net/).

Remember the original Riot-run Noxus vs. Ionia tournament? The reason we have Ionian Boots of Lucidity? Wouldn't it be cool if we had something like that again?

Factions is a community-powered game mode in which Summoners declare for a faction (http://leaguefactions.net/the-world-of-factions/) (such as Zaun or Demacia) and fight matches using faction-specific Champion lists (for example, Demacia gets Lux and Garen). These rosters give each faction unique gameplay and shake up the meta.

Anyone can start a match (http://leaguefactions.net/creating-a-match/) anytime. Results are submitted to us online and scored. Each match affects the balance of power (http://leaguefactions.net/balance-of-power/) between the factions and influences the direction of the storyline.

When new storylines begin, Summoners can sign up for their previous faction again or change to a new faction.

Key features of Factions:

  • Fusion of gameplay and story. In Factions, you the Summoners are at the heart of the story. Factions gain or lose power through actual matches you fight, and the storyline proceeds accordingly. Together, we've written an ongoing saga (http://leaguefactions.net/storyline/) with actual player actions at the center.
  • Community-driven lore. Whether through matches (http://leaguefactions.net/creating-a-match/) or interactive lore events (http://leaguefactions.net/mirrorwater-update-5-the-true-noxus/), Summoners play a pivotal role in deciding what happens next.
  • Novel gameplay. The limited Champion rosters give each faction distinctive strengths and weaknesses. Summoners must think critically about how to play up their factions' strengths and exploit their opponents' weaknesses.
  • Community. Get to know other Summoners from a wide range of skill levels. Work together to lead your faction to victory.
  • Anyone can start a match anytime. Although (for example) we have shoutcasted Featured Matches (http://leaguefactions.net/featured-matches/) every Saturday starting at 12:30 p.m. Pacific, any Factions player can start a scored, official match (http://leaguefactions.net/creating-a-match/) anytime.

Ionia and Piltover face off. Ionia has unmatched mobility, while Piltover excels at poke.

Factions is organized into storylines (http://leaguefactions.net/previous-storylines/), each featuring a particular set of factions (http://leaguefactions.net/the-world-of-factions/). For example, the first storyline featured Demacia, the Freljord, Ionia, Noxus, and Piltover, fighting over a mysterious magical substance called "Mirrorwater" (http://leaguefactions.net/mirrorwater-backstory/).

The current storyline, Shon-Xan (http://leaguefactions.net/current-storyline/), will conclude on March 24, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific. As usual, we are holding a public vote to decide which factions will face off next. We plan to try a three-faction arc this time. Once we know which factions players want to see, we'll draft up a storyline based around those factions and announce the new arc.


Some references for beginners
  • Previous Storylines (http://leaguefactions.net/previous-storylines/) — A succinct summary of past arcs, with lists of participating factions and scoreboard charts.
  • Storyline Overview (http://leaguefactions.net/storyline/) — A more narrative account of the Factions saga to date.
  • The World of Factions (http://leaguefactions.net/the-world-of-factions/) — A guide to the Factions setting, including a list of factions and some tentative Champion rosters.
These resources should help get you up to speed. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here. I'm pretty excited to see which factions the community will select, so I'm going to be refreshing this page a lot.

If you can, please post here (or message me in-game) to confirm account ownership. It's a little paranoid, I suppose, to imagine someone impersonating other Summoners to exercise undue influence on the factions selection process, but we've had false signups before.

I've just cast my own vote. :3

I think a Piltover-Zaun clash would be really interesting. I'd like to explore the contrast between these two factions' approaches to technology.
