League of Legends is a fast paced and competitive multiplayer online battle stage. It’s a game developed by Riot Games and is available on Windows and OS X.
A lol account controls a champion and has the role as an summoner with some unique abilities who fight against a team of other players with champions.
Every account has two types of in game currencies:
- Riot Points (also known as RP)
Riot Points can be purchased with real money and are usually used to buy in-game things to improve the playing experience, add customization options and for adding convenience.
Riot Points can be used to buy boosts, which are used to increase the rate at which an account can gain Influence Points(we will get into this type of game currency below), they are also used to buy champions and skins for champions.
- Influence Points (or IP)
Influence Points are a way to know the influence of a summoner in the League of Legends. It is mostly given based on the performance of an account on the Fields of Justice. There are many things that are taken into account when giving Influence Points to an account. These factors include whether the team won the game or lost it, the duration of the match, it mostly increases linearly as the game progresses and the type of game That was played. Influence Points are used to unlock the champions and runes. They can also be used to unlock the runebook pages in the Riot Store. If a team wins then the IP reward is 18 IP and 2.312 for every minute and for a lost battle it Is 16 IP and 1.405 for every minute. Also the IP increases with the level of your LOL account.
