MMR in League of Legends ( also known as Match Making Rating or Elo ) is a statistic on which the game bases the players in your match.
It also affects the amount of LP you gain or lose. It means that even if your rank is gold you might have to play against a Diamond tier player just because he has a really low Match Making Rating.
There is an average amount of MMR in LoL that players in each division have. If your is higher than the average Elo of your division, you will gain more, and lose less LP per win or a defeat.
But on the other hand you might play against players with higher ranking than you, which would make it harder to win games.
Your LP gain is calculated out of the difference between your, and the average MMR amount of your division.
The bigger your Match Making Rating is compared to the average for your division, the more LP you get per win.
It means that if you have an MMR of a gold III , but you are in silver II you will earn much more LP than if you had the average Elo of a silver II.
You will also earn a lot less LP if you have lower MMR than other players from your division.
And as Match Making Rating bases on your wins it means that the bigger overall win-rate you have the larger amount of LP you might get per win.
Your Match Making Rating changes after every match that you have played, and league calculates the gain based on the average Elo of both of the teams :
- You get more for a won game if your team had lower MMR than the enemy team.
- After a won game against a team with lower Match Making Rating compared to your team you gain a smaller amount of Elo.
- When you lose a game to a team with much higher Match Making Rating than your team, you don’t lose much, since you team was already more likely to lose this match.
- If you are in a team with MMR higher than your foes, you lose a lot after a defeat.
Knowing that it might be a reason to not spam “ff 15” and instead try to win even when at first it looks like a defeat. You might get a pretty big load of MMR for it !
Knowing your Elo might be a really good way of predicting how likely would it be to gain more LP, or skip a division after your promotion games.
However as the league client itself does not show your Match Making Rating anywhere, there are other ways to check your MMR in League of Legends outside of the game client.
There are many websites that offer an option to check your Match Making Rating, or compare it to the average Elo of your division.
One of the more popular places to visit is whatismymmr.com, where you can see your MMR by simply writing your summoner name.
After choosing your server and typing in your summoner name you can check your MMR and see if it’s higher than average, as well as look how high it is compared to other players and much more.
League calculates your Elo separately for Ranked and Normal matches, so you might have a Ranked Match Making Rating of a Platinum player, but an MMR of your Normal games like a silver player.
The only situation where your normal matches have anything to do with ranked is when you are playing ranked for the first time.
That might be one of the reasons why is it sometimes so much easier to win a normal match rather than a Ranked Match.
It also means that by winning a Normal Game you won’t increase your Ranked Elo.
The difference affects not only the normal games but your Ranked MMR in League of Legends is calculated separately even for other game modes like Ranked Flex or ARAM.
Aside from trying yourself to win as many ranked matches as possible, one of the most popular ways how to increase your MMR in League of Legends is by buying an Elo Boost or a high Win Ratio smurf account.
This way you save yourself a lot of nerves and pointless hours of losing because of your team.
If you buy from any seller however, you may end up scammed, or it might get you banned because it is against Riots’ Terms and Conditions, according to them Boosting your MMR in League of Legends this way causing matchmaking to be inaccurate.
But if you want to increase your Match Making Rating without having to spend hours on trying, our services regarding Elo Boost are 100% safe, since we make sure to use a VPN for the client to not see the change of IP.
We also use offline mode so while the booster is playing to your friends you appear offline.
This way you don’t need to worry about both your friends or a possible ban, as well as we guarantee you a 70+ percent Win-rate.
