I've been playing for a few days and still don't understand what dictates IP gain. I ask before every match but always get no answer. I've searched through the help guide but it seems pvp.net doesn't feel they need to explain important aspects of the game. Not only this but lately my IP boost isn't enabled... wtf. I've missed out on over 500 IP because of this, why?

So my questions are what dictates IP gain and how do I turn IP boost back on?

IP is awarded on time played and the type of game played. New players get an IP boost, after a certain level it shuts off and you have to buy it if you want it again.

So it doesn't matter how many hero kills, minion kills, or gold I generate? Because it seems I get more IP with Evelynn than Soraka or Ahri. (I get 20-50 bot kills per game with Evelynn)

Well, from what i know, it depends too in which champion you are using.
You get more IP from playing a match with a support or a tank than using an AP carry, it depends too if you win or if you lose

No.
The only things that affect it are:
Time played.
Type of game.
And maybe matchmaking (e.g. relative levels of ppl you play with), I'm unsure about that though.
It can be increased by buying an IP boost or getting the first win of the day boost.
Edit: Win/lose too.
Forgot the most obvious one :/

This, but is also affected by winning/losing. Winning gives a good amount more IP. Winning a 1 hour game is worth a LOT more than losing one.

Again, the only things that affect IP are time played, game type, win vs lose. And boosts of course.
