Summoner Experience

League of Legends uses a level system to reflect how experienced summoners are. The level system comprises 30 levels, each represented by a number from 1 to 30. Higher numbers mean more experience. Summoners start their first game at level 1 and progress until they reach level 30 after a variable number of games (typically between 300 and 400). The level system is based on the concept of Experience Points (XP). Summoners accumulate XP by playing games. When they accumulate a certain amount of XP, they progress to the next level. The level progression finishes when the Summoner reaches level 30. Reaching this level is one of the requirements to participate in Ranked games (the others are owning 16 champions and taking part in a series of placement games).

XP values of matches

The amount of XP received for a game is determined by several rules:

  • Wins are worth more XP than losses.
  • Longer games are worth more XP.
  • There is both a minimum and a maximum amount of XP a player can get from a game.
  • Different types of games award different amounts of XP. For instance, the current (July 2011) formula for a Normal game at levels 15-19 is roughly 3m+25, where m is the number of minutes the game lasts, capped at 198. At the same levels, Intermediate Bot games subtract a 25% penalty from that formula.
  • XP Boosts, which can be purchased with Riot Points from the PVP.Net store, increase the XP earned. There are several types of XP boosts which increase the XP acquired in different ways.

Depending on all these factors, each game awards roughly between 50 and 300 XP, with average values around 100 XP.

Leveling up

Leveling up grants access to new game modes, summoner spells, rune slots, rune tiers, mastery points, and extras such as loot and champion masteries.

The following table describes the amount of XP required to level up and some of the game content unlocked when reaching each level.
