Are you short on Influence Points (IP)? Desperately need an IP Hack? The truth is that there are no IP Hacks for League of Legends but there are some great tips and strategies that you can use to boost your Influence Points (IP).

Influence Points (IP) are an important currency in League of Legends as they allow you to buy champions, runes and extra rune pages from the Riot Store. However, IP is hard to earn and it can take you ages to save up enough IP for that new champion or a complete rune book.

The methods on this page are simple tips and tricks to boosting the amount of Influence Points (IP) that you can earn in League of Legends. You will not find an IP Hack on this page, the IP Hack in this case is simply applying the strategies here.

The easiest way to get more Influence Points for League of Legends is through IP boosts in the Riot Point store but of course not everyone wants to spend money on League of Legends so these strategies here focus on IP efficiency to maximise your returns for hours played.

Earn Maximum Influence Points Using These Strategies (No IP Hacks)

What are Influence Points (IP)?

Influence Points (IP) are earned by players for playing games or solving Tribunal cases. These Influence Points (IP) can be used in the League of Legends store to unlock champions, runes and even extra rune pages. The amount of Influence Points (IP) earned is based on many factors and as such there are many ways to increase your overall Influence Points (IP) gained.

There are not any working IP Hacks that give you free Influence Points (IP) and there never will be. Anything you see relating to an Influence Point (IP) Hack is simply a virus that will infect your computer. The only true Influence Point (IP) Hack is using strategies to increase the effectiveness at which you gain Influence Points (IP).

Playing Games

For Influence Points

The main source of Influence Points (IP) is playing the various different game types that League of Legends offers. Of course the more games that you play the more Influence Points you will earn but by understanding the rules that apply to IP gain you can increase your overall IP gained for amount of time spent.

The reward per game is based on game type (normal, dominion or co-op vs AI) as well as the length of the game and whether you were victorious.

Rules of Influence Point Gain - When Playing Games

  • Influence Point gain increases linearly based on the length of the game.
  • More Influence Points are awarded for a win than a loss.
  • Matches longer than 55 minutes give the same IP as a 55 minute game.
  • Matches shorter than 25 minutes give the same IP as 25 minute games (This can be used to your advantage, by surrendering on 20 minutes for games that are beyond a comeback).
  • A win is worth, 18.193 IP + 2.312 per minute IP (approximately).
  • A loss is worth, 15.401 IP + 1.430 per minute IP (approximately).

First Win Of The Day

To further optimise your Influence Point (IP) gain you want to be sure to play League of Legends everyday for at least one win. This is because League of Legends offers 150IP as a bonus for your first win in a 22hr period (roughly everyday). By doing this you can ensure that you can earn maximum Influence Points (IP).

Bot Farming

A popular method of gaining efficient Influence Points (IP) is to farm them from games against bots (either co-op vs AI or just custom games filled with bots). This generally means quick and easy wins leading to simple Influence Point (IP) gains.

There are however restrictions and penalties that apply to this method to reduce its effectiveness particularly at higher summoner levels (method is best for summoners level 1-15). You are also restricted to 150minutes of IP rewarding custom game play per 22hour period (roughly 5-6 Summoner's Rift games).

The Tribunal

The Tribunal is a League of Legends initiative to cut down on AFKers, leavers and generally disrespectful players. Summoners who are level 30 are able to review cases regarding other Summoners with the option to pardan or punish the offender of the Summoner's Code. If you side with the majority of players you will receive a small Influence Point (IP) reward for your time.

If you have some extra time on your hands and are a level 30 summoner then this is an easy method of Influence Points (IP) generation.

Influence Point (IP) Boosts

If you really want to generate some Influence Points (IP) quickly you can consider buying one of the various IP Boosts on offer from the League of Legends store.

The boosts come in set time periods (24hrs or 14days) and also come in per win boosts, which last for a specified number of wins. If you don't have money to purchase Riot Points consider checking out this page on How To Earn Free RP for League of Legends.

Influence Point (IP) Saving

One of the best and easiest ways to maximise the amount of Influence Points (IP) you have is to simply be more careful with the Influence Points (IP) that you already have.

By using IP saving methods you can make better use of your hard earned Influence Points (IP) and thus remove the need for earning more. Some good tips to follow include:

      @anonymous: When showing anything off / doing anything, the devs (and Phreak) tend to be logged into the "Tournament Client". It's a separate client with maxed RP/IP so that players can play with any champion / skin.
