A normal game doesn't really fit into the olympic theme though.
Entirely untrue.

In fact, it is more of a test of skill than every other idea pitched in this thread.

It's all too gimmicky, and not everyone sees "Capture the Teemo" as great fun.

There could always be multiple events?
Great idea here.

Also, the link in the subtitle is the wrong one. Use the one in my sig.

Please explain to us why that isn't a test of skill and capturing a Teemo is skillful Phoenixmon? Olympics is about a test of skill, not whether or not the team will have fun. :\ I play League all the time (playing a match atm) and I'd never play a gamemode like that, sounds so damn boring. Same with the whole All Mid All Random, it doesn't show skill.

How about this.
1v1
3v3
5v5
5v5 Crystal Scar

Four separate events for one game.
We just need someone streaming it.

This good?

Sounds good, we could implement additional games if needed.

What I was meaning by it doesn't really fit with the theme is that from what I've seen of olympics, there aren't any major team events. Usually relays appear to have the largest teams, in which they work it out one person at a time. Saying that, I last watched just a few events in Beijing Olympics, and haven't been bothered to watch sports since.

And Rome I'll sort it out >.>.

Well let me clarify that.

Basketball, field hockey, volleyball, and rowing are all Olympic events.

Oh lulz kk.

Anyway, I've been asked to organise the events, times and (in the nearer future) days for everything. So: I need in order of preference which events you would like to see in the Olympics, 1 being the highest, 10 being the lowest.

Classic 5v5
Squish the Teemo 5v5
ARAM (Proving Grounds) 5v5
ADAM (Proving Grounds) 5v5
Dominion Normal 5v5
Dominion Capture the Flag 5v5
Classic 3v3
ARAB 3v3
ADAB 3v3
Tournament (Proving Grounds) 1v1

I kinda have an idea, although I assume it will be extremely boring. Since the above talks about relay races, the idea of 1v1 kinda struck me.

How about 3v3 but instead of actual 3v3, it's more, 1v1 and you are laning against another. When that person has to b, another team member takes his place.

For example:

LeBlanc, MF and Lee Sin
VS
Ahri, Akali and Morde

At the start of the game, LB and Ahri are against each other. LB gets pushed outta lane by Ahri, so LB b's home, only to have Morde come and take her place because now it's his turn in the ~relay race~ for lack of a better phrase.

One thing I do see going wrong however is, one side ending up getting fed, whether through kills or farm and then rolling over the under team because everyone would be underleveled.

I'd say champions with a lot of sustain would do very well with this type of play.

However, in theory it sounds fun because you don't know who you are going up against, it would also force people to last hit and harass, which are obviously very important skills to learn.

Idk, just a thought, probably a bad one.

I really like the idea, but I think it may need some testing. After all, yeah. After a small feeding, the whole game might just snowball.

Alternatively, it could be timed in lane. Like, each team member gets 5min in lane. This would decrease the chance of snowball a bit.

We can test the 3v3 relay, but for now Twilight and MegaBassMan I need to know which events to prioritise. If the relay works, it will steal a definite place okay because I love the idea ?

I would, but my time as a Leaguer may soon come to a screeching halt due to circumstances outside of my control.
