I should be there, as I don't think I'll have to be up particularly early for orientation the next day.  Nayth0r might be across the state though, at that point, home with the folks, so I don't think he'll be able to.

 

Edit: Nate's apparently driving across the state on Thursday morning, so he will be there.  Huzzah.

Enough of those people probably won't have enough champs to do a real Draft.  That said we totally could do an out-of-game draft if we wanted.

Out of curiosity, what champs would be available for a Demacia vs Noxus draft game?  I'm working on a list, but would like to cross-check it when I'm done....

I'd just check the wikia League of Legends site: Noxus vs. Demacia. I'd ignore the "associated champions" for the most part since they're just random ties which vary from "rivals with X champ from other side" to "maybe birthplace" which don't really count. Course by those lists Noxus has 3 more champs then Demacia which I'd think we can for the most part ignore since we're not doing anything super official so I'd be fine with ignoring it. However according to those lists there are also only one tank per side, Singed for Noxus and Galio for Demacia, so if each side banned those then there'd be no real tanks. Plus while Singed is free this week Galio is not and I'd doubt many of us have him (course I could be wrong, I certainly don't have him though). We could easily just say "screw it" and if they get banned deal with it. A no tank game coud be interesting and there's plenty of bruisers that could pseudo-tank. Additionally we could just take up the stance of screw it this is for funsies, go with what people got and whoever gets banned gets banned.

EDIT: If we want to give more tank options, maybe we could give Noxus Rammus again ("You're playing for Noxus again Rammus." "O-...okay...") and maybe give Demacia someone extra. Having not looked too much into the lore of a lot of champs, I just took a brief look and sounds like Alistar would legitimately want to fight against Noxus. That'd at least give two options for tanks and we could have a rule to only ban one tank champ. Course are we bothering to ban champs? I was just assuming we were. We don't have to. Adding those two would still add more options for tanks though.

I think going with no bans would be best since we have some new folks with out many champs. Or if we want to ban make it ban characters after non-level 30s have selected their champions. I know I've saved up enough IP to just buy a champion for whichever team I end up playing on tonight to fill whatever's needed if I don't already own something so I'm not worried about my "only option" getting banned.

My personal thought is that we should just go for a fun 5v5 and not worry about national ties.  I'd rather see being able to as-close-as-possible-to-real-draft-mode than honoring Noxus vs Demacia when I'm not even sure Riot's ready to honor that yet.  Draft mode would be a good way for us to steal away the ability of the veteran players from super-carrying the match from the noobs while still of course making sure not to ban any of the 'free this week' champs for the newer player's sake.

It also stops the vets from one game throwing it on accident because the vets from the other game decided to play for keeps.  If a team has Misharum in it and his team picks Nidalee, then the other team can assume who is playing her and pick/counter-pick accordingly.
