YOLO Takes Down SWAG at the URFitational
Held on April 1st, 2015, twoÂ teams of old-school LoL pros took to the rift to duke it out in an Ultra Rapid-Fire match. Ye Olde League Organization took on Society of Worth Accessing Gentlemen in a match originally meant to be played on the NURF Gamemode, whichÂ would have featured:
- +100% mana and energy cost on all abilities
- +200% cooldown inflation on abilities, items and summoner spells
- +225 movement speed reduction
- +200% delay between basic attacks
- Critical strikes deal 50% of base AD
- Units critically strike on 150% of attacks
Unfortunately, due to a technical difficulty, URF mode was used instead. In less than 20 minutes and in devastating fashion, YOLO managed to take down SWAG.
Riot’s own Rivington Bisland III delivered a statement regarding the event,Â which was the following:
When speaking of the Bisland family history, itâ€™s impossible not to mention strategery. Yes, strategery. Not only was it my first word, but strategery was invented by my grandfather and forefather of some of the most innovative gameplay ever seen on the Rift, Rivington Bisland I.
My grandpappy, known as â€œRiv Oneâ€ by those in the URFitational scene, performed the inaugural URFitational cast with Nicolas Flamel Allen in 1943. He spent more than 30 years as a regular behind the URFitational casting desk producing premium, award-winning coverage of our annual soirÃ©e. Due to the elite and exclusive nature of the event, tournament footage and distribution is only available to members of the Universal Rivington Federation.
As newly-elected President of the aforementioned Federation, and as direct descendant of the URFitational legacy, I felt the exclusive nature of the URFitational wasnâ€™t the way to bring this proud, historical tournament into the future. Therefore, for the first time ever, Iâ€™m proud that Iâ€™ll be able to share this annual tradition outside the Federation and directly with all of you.
The URFitational featured the use of ringers, some substitutes and some quality acting from the Riot crew. Highlights include Brian “TheOddOne” Wyllie losing his spot to brother Anslie “frommaplestreet” Wyllie after heading to the restroom, along with everyone finding out the true power of AD Malzahar.
