So I'm saving up for yorick, and I really want to know what the quickest way to earn the IP is,
Do you think it's normal summoner's rift games, dominion, twisted treeline, what?

Best way to earn IP is winning (preferably long) games.

The fastest way is to play vs AI and win. Almost 100% win chance there. But you must make sure now after the latest patches that you drag the game on at least 30 minutes before you kill their nexus. If you rush and kill it around 20 minutes, you get reduced ip, but the longer you do, you get a bonus instead compare to before.

First to banish some of these myths, if we assume 100 % win rate against intermediate bots and that all games last 25 minutes or more (unlikely assumption): the IP per bot match is
7+ 1,8496/minute

The IP per average normal match (assuming 50 % win chance) is:
17 + 1,8505/minute. As the ip/minute is more or less the same, if the normal matches last less than around 65 minutes on average, normal matches are superior to bot matches since you cannot play 2.5 bot matches within that time (ignoring requeue times).

Long matches vs. short:

As said the average IP gain for a normal match is 17 + 1,8505/minute. Therefore a long match is superior to a short match if the requeue time cost more than the base IP for an additional game cost you.
Thus if the downtime between matches is less than (17/1,8505) 9,2 (9 minutes 12 seconds) then short matches are superior to long matches for IP.

An even better way than playing long matches, is to lose short matches and win long matches (probably hard to do systematically). If winning matches are twice as long you can increase the IP gain to 17 + 2,01 per minute, but even in this case its superior simply playing short matches if the requeue time is less than 8 minute 30 seconds.

All in all the best way of grinding IP is short normal or ranked matches, assuming a 50 % win ratio.



The highest IP/minute however is obtained by getting a guaranteed WotD vs easy bots. An easy bot match takes 15 to 20 minutes and reward 175-180 IP. Thus a 15 minute match rewards almost 12 ip/minute while a 20 minute match rewards 9/ip per minute.

On the other hand a normal games take 40 minutes approx and only have 50 % win chance, and therefore rewards 17+1,8505*40 + 75 = 4 IP/minute.

Therefore if you have a day where you are not gonna play for whatever reason or only have time for one, and where you therefore might not get wotd using 15-20 minutes to take an easy bot match rewards 2-3 times the ip/time as a single attempt on normal. Also compared to the ip/ minute of actual grinding its 4-6 times higher.

Edit: TT have the same IP formular as SR, so it might actually be superior. Dominion are different, not sure exactly how that works.
Tribunal are also an option

Quote:
On Summoner's Rift these base/caps are at 25 minutes (76 IP for a win) and 55 minutes (145 IP for a win)
Quote:
The cap is different on ranked games. IP boost grants 168 IP on ranked games on Summoner's Rift, so it appears the cap is 65 minutes for ranked games on Summoner's Rift.
Quote:
The maximum amount of IP won from a match is:

Win: (first win of the day bonus, 55+ mins ranked match, IP boost (timed and per win)) 150 + 168 + 168 + 168 = 654 IP (822 on a double-IP weekend)
Loss (55+ mins match): 95 IP

There is a simple way for earning IP fast.Just make another account and play until level 5(it will take you less than a day or so) and you will get some IP.If you play to level 10 you will get a bigger reward(some small amount of RP,simple skin or something like that) .Thats how I got myself a lot of champions in less than a month.At first it was a little annoying but you cant play the game at its fullest if you don't have champions right?I'm speaking from personal experience here.I've spend hours of searching the internet for a quicker way but there is none. There is no better way to do it.Here is a link for the registration http://signup.leagueoflegends.com/?r...c557f922438580

Don't miss the chance to gain the first win of the day bonus, as it gives out plenty of IP for a win.
