Summoner Experience is the reward, together with Influence Points, awarded to a summoner after completing a game. It ceases to be received after the Summoner's level is maxed out at 30. The received Experience Points are calculated at the end of each game; wins are worth more than losses, and the longer the game lasts, the more XP you gain.
Increasing experience gain
- Summoner Experience gain can be increased by purchasing an XP Boost from the PVP.Net store. This will double the experience earned at the end of each match.
- There is both a minimum and a maximum amount of XP and IP a player can get from a game.
- Current (July 2011) formula for XP winning a Normal game at level 15-19 is roughly 3m+25, where m is the number of minutes the game lasts, capped at 198. Intermediate Bot games at level 10-14 use the same formula. At level 15-19, Intermediate Bot games subtract a 25% penalty from that formula.
Leveling up (Updated)
The following describes the amount of experience required to go from one level to the next.
Leveling grants access to game modes, summoner spells, Rune slots, Rune tiers, mastery points, and extras such as loot and champion mastery.
Each level grants one additional Mastery point. This is omitted from the table below.
