Tier and Division Advancement in League of Legends

A real estate investor by profession, Shawn Boday enjoys online gaming in his free time. Shawn Boday stands out as an active League of Legends player and has plans to create his own online gaming company in the future.

In the online multiplayer game League of Legends, players compete in ranked leagues by play ability. A player receives his or her league placement by participating in 10 placement matches, after which time the player joins the Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, or Challenger tier. Each tier also includes five divisions, Division I being the highest and Division V being a step up from the previous tier.

Players move up divisions and tiers by earning league points, or LPs. When a player gathers 100 LPs, he or she must play in a three-game promotion series to step up to the next division. The player must win best of three to advance. Players in Division I who have accumulated 100 LPs win a best-of-five series to move to the next tier. This system gives players achievable goals within the game framework and enables them to compete against their friends on equal footing.
