Math Behind Climbing Ranked Games 2
Last Updated: August 19th 2015



.

How many games should you play a day to climb ranked fast?
Let's find out!



Has anyone ever told you that in order to climb Ranked Ladder fast  you have to play a lot of games?
Yes but that is only true if your average win rate is over 50%.
However, playing too much can also slow down your ranked progress.

The following is InvertedComposer's win rate per each game of the day.

InvertedComposer's Win Rate


Data Explanation

1st Game   = You are feeling rusty on your first game. You should be playing support if someone else wants your lane.

2nd Game  = You are finally warmed up and ready to win. Try to play your main role.

3rd Game   = All of a sudden you are hypercarrying the game. You think you are too good at this game sometimes.

4th Game   = You are still in good shape to stomp more people in Solo Queue.

5th Game   = You are feeling a little fatigue.  You tell yourself that this is going to be your last game for the day

6th Game   = Needlessly to say you queue up again... You just couldn't help it.

7th Game   = Now it's 2 AM but you decide to play anyway because you are greedy for another win... JUST ONE MORE

8th Game   = Unfortunately, you just lost your last game. You use that fact as an excuse to play another game... oh gosh

9th Game   = You are about to pass out but your hand magically joins a ranked game and now you are forced to play

10th Game = You are half unconcious while playing.  You do not care whatever the outcome of the game is...

After the 10th game you just pass out immediately. A few hours later you start dreaming about League of Legends. The game is a little different in there though, like Tryndamere spin knocking you up, Twisted Fate cards giving you shield, and Caitlyn turning invisible every time she uses E... you know....

Ah finally, you wake up at 1PM.  You login to League of Legends only to find that you have made literally no progress in ranked.  Now you're having your breakfast at lunch time.  What a good way to start a day...

         


The moral of the story is that playing too much of League of Legends not only ruins your life but also brings worse results to your Ranked Game progress.

From my 4 years of League of Legends experience I have noticed that my last games played past midnight is almost always a guaranteed loss due to faigueness.

If you would like to make a good progress in ranked games, play about 3-5 games during the day and never play 3hours before your bedtime.



Now people have been reporting that they don't get the role they want if they only play very few games a day.
As a result these players become very rusty with their main champions which will result a decrease in performance in League of Legends.

But first of all, if you don't get the role you want you should just dodge.

Dodging results in 3LP (10LP penalty after the first one) loss but this does not lower your MMR, meaning you'll start losing less LP when you lose a game next time.

Secondly, the chance of getting the role you want is actually quite high.

Even if you keep silence (not asking for the role you want), the average probability of you still getting your role is 60%.  Now this chance could go up if you ask your teammates nicely for the role or you just lock in your champion faster than the person who is in the same pick order as you.


I have made a simulation to test this theory.  Try it now HERE

Solo Queue - Chance of Getting Your Role (Proof)

If Your Team gets the First Ban:
    You are the 1st Player: 100%
    You are the 2nd Player: 70% (60% or 80%
depending on whoever locks in first)
    You are the 3rd Player: 70%
(60% or 80% depending on whoever locks in first)
    You are the 4th Player: 30%
(20% or 40% depending on whoever locks in first)
    You are the 5th Player: 30% (20% or 40% depending on whoever locks in first)
Average: 60%
   
If Enemy Team gets the First Ban:
    You are the 1st Player: 90%
(80% or 100% depending on whoever locks in first)
    You are the 2nd Player: 90% (80% or 100% depending on whoever locks in first)
    You are the 3rd Player: 50%
(40% or 60% depending on whoever locks in first)
    You are the 4th Player: 50%
(40% or60% depending on whoever locks in first)
    You are the 5th Player: 20%
Average: 60%


Therefore, you have 60% chance of getting the role you want while keeping silence in chat.

Try to ask your teammates for the role nicely and they might even give up their role for you.


Duo Queue - Chance of Getting Both of the Roles

I have calculated that
the average rate is 42.5% for both you and your duo partner getting





You have now learned how important it is to play effective games to boost your chance of winning

Also Good luck in Solo Queue!
