Now that it matters a lot, I was wondering how it is calculated.

One time, I got like 300 xp ip for a game, then a very long 90 minute game, I get 70. I don't get it.

in short XP & IP is calculated from various things you did in the game.
So you can have long game and not so much IP/XP because you didn't do much of the things we track for calculation.

So far from comparing with my friends it seems to me if you solo lane you get more xp when the game is over.

That doesn't seem right.
I had two diff games, both laned by myself. 3 kills, 0 deaths, 3 assists in one and 16 kills, 0 deaths, 2 assists in another.
301 xp and 124 xp, respectively.

Kinda curious how this works.

You got a first win of the day bonus on the first one.

His hint was that they actually track specific things. He probably isn't supposed to let you know what those are... because as soon as players know what they are they can try and exploit it.

More than likely you're looking at:

Number of kills/assists and possibly your kill to death ratio
Number of lane creeps killed
Number of jungle creeps killed
Damage done to towers


There may be tons of other factors, but suffice to say that the more you do individually in the game, the higher your XP and IP figures will be.

probably has something to do with if your team won or lost and how long it took for you to win or lose too
