League of Legend is a very popular game and it is played by millions of players around the world. The developers of the game are also continuously working on the game to make it more competitive and fair. The game has the Leagues & Rank System which urge the players to perform in competitive matches and get better ranks. In this quick guide, we will tell you everything you need to know about the Leagues & Rank System. Let’s get started.
League is basically a ranking system which shows the players’ skills levels. In League of Legends, Ranked is the competitive game mode where the players are divided into two teams of 5 players and they play against each other. Ranked is only available to those players who have the level 30 or above.
When you will reach level 30, your rank will be determined by the first 10 matches you play. The more matches you win the better league you will get. Currently, there are 9 Ranks in the game and Riot have recently added two additional ranks to diversify the ranks. Here are the current ranks in League of Legends.
There is a total of 9 ranks but each rank is further divided into four divisions. Each division starts at IV and ends at I.
For example, you will start with Iron IV and then you will reach the Iron I. To get the next division or rank, you will have to make sure to win the maximum matches. When you will win the game you will get the League Points (LP) and upon reaching the 100 LP you will be given a chance to enter the promotion series where you can try to go the next division.
To move to the next division, you will have to win the maximum games. Each division has different criteria but the base rule is that you will have to win the max games. If you don’t win the maximum games then you will have to go back to get the 100 LP and then try again.
Now the amount of LP depends on your Match Making Ratings or MMR which is basically a hidden number which represents your skills. The bigger the MMR, the more LP you will gain and vice versa. If you want to increase your MMR then you will have to win the game after game to increase your MMR.
What are the Positional Ranks and why it was canceled?
The Riot introduced the Positional Ranks at the start of 2019 as an experiment to make the matchmaking fair. In this system, the players were individually ranked for each position in League. The system had the Splashing mechanism where every role was gaining and losing LP for every game.
The company initially launched this system for North America and Korea but the end result wasn’t good. The Riot rolled back this update on March 13 and this move was appreciated by the Community.
