### Reaching Summoner Level 31

Recruiter

In the interest of Science I have investigated how long it would actually take to reach level 31, based on the value given by the game currently (2^31 - 1).

First we must decide how long a game will take. The fastest a game could be run would be to create a practice game and surrender upon loading. It takes 1 minute for champion selection, and 1 more minute for surrender voting. Let's say it takes about half a minute for creating and loading the game, for a total of 2.5 minutes per game.

Each game nets you 1 XP. Let's suppose that you start level 30 at exactly 0 XP (it's possible, if you have 50 XP in level 29, to win your last game and end up with 50 XP in level 30).

(2^31) - 1 = 2147483647 XP needed
2147483647 XP needed * 2.5 minutes per game = 5368709117 minutes until level 31
5368709117 minutes until level 31 / (60 minutes * 24 hours * 365.25 years) = 10207.4 years.

So there you have it: in approximately 10 thousand years a player could reach summoner level 31.

Good luck!

Edit: I have learned that the minimum amount of time before a game gives you XP is 6 minutes. So theoretically, you'd need about 7.5 minutes per game. This is triple my previous evaluation, meaning that you need approximately 30 thousand years.

I think someone already did this math somewhere, but it the XP value might have changed since then

Surrender doesnt work until 15 minutes. Redo the math

can't get xp for games shorter than 6 minutes

so a bit over 20 000 years is the minimum

I wonder if Dr. Mundo will be a good hero by that time

Hahaha, I didn't know this.

20,000 years it is. I hope people aren't always picking Ashe every game then, too.

yes, but what happens when you do hit level 31 in 20,000 years? do you (your brain surrounded by a new robotic body) at least get an extra mastery point or rune slot for your troubles?
