Stats and winners are based on the following formulas:

  • Terms

    • normalized damage taken = Total damage taken / game length in seconds
    • normalized healing = healing done / game length in seconds
  • Roles
    • Carry/Mid - (normalized damage + total minion kills) * KDA
    • Jungle - (normalized damage + neutral jungle minion kills (player jungle + enemy jungle)) * KDA
    • Support - (normalized damage + normalized healing + total time CC dealt + wards placed) * KDA
    • Tank - (normalized damage + normalized damage taken + total time CC dealt) * KDA

 

Stats are only tracked in the following game modes:

  • 'Ranked Solo 5v5'
  • 'Ranked Premade 5v5'
  • 'Ranked Flex 3v3'
