How to Farm IP so you can buy what you want

Since the introduction if the rune pages, people have been whining about having only a couple hours a day to get IP so that they can buy the champs and rune pages that they want and see that they need.

The biggest problem people have is that IP is so hard to get when you only have 1 - 3 hours a day to farm IP.

Well don't worry any more, I'm here to tell you how to quickly and efficiently farm IP In the allotted time you have:

1 HOUR A DAY TO PLAY:

So you only have 1 hour to play a day, don't worry you can get that Rune page in no time, as long as you play smartly:

Most IP in 1 Hour:

This is the most boring way to get IP

1) In 1 hour 10 minutes play 6 practice games.
2) This will give you 428 IP
3) Time to get Rune page: 6,300/428 = 14.7 days (14.7 hours)

More Fun Hour:

This is for those that actually want to play a game in a day:

1) Play your game (40 minutes less assume)
2) Play 2 practice games (22 mins)
3) Get between 398IP and 213IP
4) Time to get Rune page: 6,300/(398+213/2) = 20.6 days (20.6 hours)

5) Max IP = 6,300/398 = 15.8 days (15.8 hours)

TWO HOURS TO PLAY THE GAME A DAY:

Most IP:

1) Play 6 practice games
2) Play 1 real game
3) Get between 678IP - 499IP
4) Time to get Rune Page: 6,300/(678+499/2) = 10.7 DAYS (21.4 hours)

5) Max IP = 6,300/678 = 9.29 days (18.58 hours)

Most Games:

1) Play 2 games (assume 40 mins each)
2) Play 4 practice games
3) Get between 624IP - 428IP
4) Time to get Rune Page: 6,300/(624+595+428/3) = 11.48 Days (22.96 hours)

5) Max IP = 6,300/624 = 10.1 days (20.1 hours)

Conclusion:

Now lets compare 2 hours most profitable to playing 6 games (so 4 hours of playing)

2 hours most profitable = 10.7 days or 21.4 hours of game play

4 hours of just playing:
1) Play 6 games
2) Get between 750IP - 425IP
3) Time t get Rune Page: 6,300/(750 + 720 + 690 + 660 + 630 + 600 + 425)/7 = 11.8 days (23.6 hours)

Basically what I'm trying to show is on average playing 6 practice games + 1 game is = to the IP from playing 6 games on average.

So you can spend 4 hours + time in queue for 6 games or play 6 practice + 1 real game and only spend 2 hours to get the same IP.

4 hours + time in queue

vs

2 hours

What one will you do?

6 practice is = to the average IP from 4 to 5 real games...

Think about it, and get farming, because real games might be fun but they wont get you what you want. 1 hour in practice will get you closer to your goals then 2 - 3 in real games remember this.

EDIT: SPECIAL SECRET IP FARMING TECHNIQUE

Alright, had to edit this because of min 4 players in practice now, used to be 1 and they changed it to 2 but apparently its back to 4 now so...

Now, this will next less IP over all for two players, but will let you farm IP without actually doing anything:

Are you at home, working on your computer and can't play LoL but you want to farm IP? Well now you can as long as your computer can minimize LoL and leave it running while you do other things.

1) Make a practice game
2) Have you and another player on one side of the game, two others on the other team
3) Set one sides bots to "Sivir" and "Ryze"
4) Set the other sides bots to "yi" and "soraka"
5) Let game run in 20 mins sivir and ryze will have won
6) rinse and repeat

You can get ip without doing anything but staying in fountain for 20 mins.

More useless now that you need 4 players, but when it goes down to 1 or 2 players then farm away with just you or you and a friend.

EDIT NUMBER 2 HOW TO RUN 11 MIN BOT GAMES:

1) Start a practice game
2) Find 2 other people
3) Play on purple
4) Set bots on other side to "yi" "soraka" "alistair" as they have the worst AI
5) Pick pushing champions (sivir, yi, heimer, taric, etc...)
6) Push a lane as fast as you can
7) Kill an inhib
8) Push to nexus towers
9) Win game

The only way to get a practice game done in 11 minutes, is getting another 3 ppl vs bots and push push and push. So you need to team up for farming.

Brb, making another account just to do that.
Edit: Won't work, coz now the minimum is 4 PLAYERS IN PRACTICE LOL.

The thing they need to do to practice games is prevent the AI bots from walking into towers and dying repeatedly at low level. They also tend to get bugged out (Yi especially) and walk back and forth between running and attacking. They need a "commit to trying to kill" type of thinking to pose a challenge, right now Ryse is the only "dangerous" bot because he can properly unload his spells. This commitment should be broken if they get into range of a tower and they have low health.

That would prevent the bots from being the total pushover they are and slow the game down a bit.

Guess I'll add a "How to 11 min farm practice games" for people that don't know how.

Additionally if you go in a lane with ryze bot you can win in 11 mins or close to as long as you keep the push going, especially if you run clarity and a pushing champion (sivir, taric, heimer, etc...)

I assume he will be even more dangerous with the buffs he just got.
