Greetings

Okay so lately i been seeing a lot of people level 30 with like 50 wins, and not that many losses. I dont really understand this, as i am currently on 152 wins and still "only" level 29. I also used the exp boost several time, so i am a bit confused. Am i missing out on some big "gain exp fast" thingy? of did these guys just play a ****load of training games?

Maybe they've been IP farming in practice games: for the 71 IP, they also get 116 XP,
so while farming IP for runes/champions, they'll also get 696 XP per day...
I guess that gets you to level 30 rather quickly for 1 1/2 hours of IP farming per day.
(OTOH: trying out each free champion in at least 1 practice game = 62 * 116 = 7192 XP == already a few levels)

Hmm it could be, i just find it strange. Of my friends that i know they all reached level 30 around 150-160 victories. So it fits pretty well with me. I have 152/102 or something like that.

I just found it strange, but i guess it could be ip farming against bots.

Well, I used some boosts when being a newbie, tested each free champ in at least 1 practice game,
tested things like item builds, jungling etc. in practice games instead of in normal games,
so now I am level 26 with 52 wins and expect to hit level 30 somewhere around 80 wins.
So to me 150 victories to get to level 30 might seem to be a bit low on the practice games and
therefor maybe a bit too much champion/build experimenting in "live" games...
(maybe just my careful/casual/noobish nature; level 26->30 will take me until december...)

Not really, it wil take me approximately the same number of games, at this rate. Maybe even more.

@skyqula:
http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/XP : 40083 XP total
I guess on average about 180 XP for a normal game win and 110 XP for a loss
(might be a bit conservative) 180 * 180 + 110 * 110 (O_o bizarre coincidence...) =
32400 + 12100 = 44500 -> you're already over the level 30 treshold with
zero practice games played...

At 50% win rate, no boosts and no practice games, about 138 wins and 138 losses
should get you from level 01 to level 30.
(wow, something like over 160 hours AKA over 4 40-hour work-weeks...)

For me currently it's something like:
40083 - 2544 - 2613 - 2681 - 2750 + 1492 = 30987 XP
of which about 52 * 180 + 44 * 110 = 9360 + 4840 = 14200 from normal games [1]
and the other half from some XP boosts and practice games.
(10-win XP boost is already 1160-1800 XP, depending on how you devide it between normal
and practice games; anything I experiment with I go the careful "practice vs bots ->
practice vs humans -> normal game" route.)


[1] QQ at matchmaking for giving me an unwanted win streak that puts me in games where
I'm very much outclassed...
