League of Legends Boosting
League of Legends is one of the most popular online games at the moment. It is a MOBA which is played by more than 20 million people around the world. It has many modes such as blind pick, draft pick, all random and 3v3, but the most played one is ranked draft. In this mode, there are 10 players, 5 on each team, which play a draft pick game. The winners win League Points, while the losing team loses League Points. These points determine the ranking of a player.
The ranks are: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master and Challenger. Besides Master and Challenger, these tiers have 5 divisions each. Once a player gets 100 points, they play a series of games which determine if they advance to the next division.
Most players are in the Silver tier, while the least are in Challenger. Challenger is a special tier, holding only 250 players at the same time. The lowest ranked players in that tier are changed for the highest ranked players in the Master tier every few days.
Boosting is a service, a paid service usually, and it means artificially increasing an account’s ranking by having a more experienced player join the matches. There are quite a few types of boosting such as division boosting, duo boosting and “per-win” boosting.
- Division boosting means that the customer gives their account to a booster so that they can win matches until they reach the division desired by the buyer. This method is best used when the customer has bad MMR and their League Point gain is low.
- When duo boosting, the owner of the account plays on their own account while the booster plays on an account which is close to the rank of the customer. This way, the customer can learn from playing with the booster, while their mistakes don’t mean too much as the booster is able to carry the game easily. The goal is similar to a division boosting’s goal: the customer picks their desired position and they play with the booster until they reach that goal.
- “Per-win” boosting means that the customer pays for a number of matches to be won. This method is great when the customer has good MMR and their League Point gain is good; 19+ LP per game.
How to avoid boosting risks
Of course, sharing accounts is against Riot’s Terms of Service, which is why duo boosting is the safest method to boost your ranking as you don’t have to share your account with anyone, you just play with someone.
To reduce the risk of being found, you can use additional options such as choosing your frequently played champions so that the booster can use them, choose the key binds of your summoner spells or even pick a booster that’s geographically close to your position.
