Hello!

I was wondering.

How does the game calculate XP and IP?

Is it based on the minions killed, heroes killed, level, builds, towers destroyed?

Thx for answers.

Honestly, i think its a bit random. I've been trying to figure it out aswell, for IP atleast, but i cant see a good reference point for the base IP gained.

You know, I think this hasn't been answered because no one outside of Riot is exactly sure how it is calculated. I do know that the bulk of the XP/IP is based on win/loss and that it is adjusted based on map and game type (you get less for playing on twisted treeline and for playing practice matches). You also can get bonuses for a quick win or for holding off the opponents in a loss.

What I will say is having a great game personally and losing will never net you as much XP/IP as winning, regardless of your stats. I suspect that XP/IP is strictly based off of W/L and game length, but don't take that as gospel.

Edit: heh, I say no one's answered it after it sits for half a day and get ninja'd by TKana. Well played sir, well played

As a side note, though, to the guy who says you get a bonus for a quick finish... not in a practive game.. you get zero ip/xp if you finish fast.

Only if you finsih within 10 minutes you wont get any xp/ip no. This is in MM aswell. You also get 0 xp/ip if you are starting an imbalanced game (4v5, 1v5, 2v4 etc).

The imbalance thing is pretty stupid. The people on the smaller side should still get XP/IP.

1) How quickly you win/lose
2) First win of the day
3) Not Leaving Games

Nothing else.
