How much time and money I wasted on LoL

At some point in your League career, after investing a lot of your cash in skins on one account, you start thinking about the value of your account, both financially and sentimentally. 

League of Legends players, especially the seasoned veterans who have been playing the game for a long time, often find themselves wondering how much time and money they’ve spent playing the game. 

If you’re someone who’s recently been bugging to find out the answers to these questions, we’ve got you covered, as we’ll take a look at the best methods that are used to determine how much time and money you’ve wasted on League of Legends.

How much time have I spent on LoL?

For some players, knowing how much time in their precious life they’ve spent on a video game hurts much more than all of the money wasted on League of Legends. 

They think of all of the social gatherings they’ve missed and girlfriends they could’ve had if Riot hadn’t lured them in with their cursed game. 

However, most of them swiftly forget about those thoughts and requeue for another ranked game after a couple of minutes. Jokes aside, here are the best methods of finding out how much time you’ve spent playing League of Legends.

Use the LoLValue time wasted calculator

LoLValue browser application is a powerful tool that will grant you insight into the time you’ve spent playing the game as well as how much money your account is worth. 

LoLValue is a very accurate method of finding out how much time you’ve spent playing the game overall and recently. The time is displayed in minutes, hours, and even days if you’ve played long enough.

Additionally, you can check the Global and server leaderboards, showcasing players who have spent the most days playing League of Legends.

Apart from calculating, this app also teases you by showing you how many languages you could’ve learned, animes watched, and workouts completed in the time you’ve spent playing the game.

Use OP.GG 

You can use OP.GG as a tool to check how many normal games you’ve played in the current season.

Enter your summoner name and specify your region -> Champions -> Normal 

You’ll be presented with the champion-specific stats for all of the normal games you’ve played that season. Add up all of the games you’ve played and you’ll get the total number.

Manually calculate how many hours you’ve played

However, if you want to check the total number of normal games that you have played on your account since you’ve created it, you’ll have to queue up for a normal game and wait for the post-game screen. 

You’ll be able to see the total number of games played on your account for that specific game mode in the upper left corner. Keep in mind that you’ll be only able to see the number of games for that specific game mode, in this case ARAM. You’ll essentially have to manually check how many games you’ve played on normal draft and normal blind pick to know the exact number.

Use our formula

Once you’ve gotten all of that information, use this formula to find out how many hours you’ve spent playing League:

ARAM number of games * 20 minutes (average ARAM game time) / 60

Summoner’s rift number of games * 30 minutes (average SR game time) / 60

By using this formula, you’ll get the rough number of hours you’ve played in that specific gamemode. Add them all up with the ranked statistics you’ve acquired from LoLValue and you’ll find out how many hours you’ve spent playing League of Legends.

How much money have I spent on League of Legends?

One of the most painful feelings known to a League player is the realization of how much money you’ve wasted on a “free-to-play” game

All of those skins, summoner icons, chromas, and event passes add up, and you might be surprised to find out that you’ve spent a trip to Dubai on cosmetic content in a video game. These are the best methods to find out how much money you’ve spent in League of Legends

Use the official Riot Games’ browser application

In 2019, Riot Games has published an official application that evaluates how much money you’ve spent on League of Legends, in every respective currency.

This came as a surprise to many League players as Riot usually keeps this kind of information hidden, so the players can be oblivious to this type of information and keep spending money on the game.

How to use Riot’s in-built browser app

That being said, their application is the easiest and the most convenient way to find out how much hard-earned cash you’ve spent on this game. You simply need to visit their support website, enter your summoner name and region, and let the app take care of the rest. 

What will the application show you

Keep in mind that their app only shows how much you’ve spent on your current region, so if you’ve swapped regions in the past, you won’t be able to know how much you’ve spent before making the switch. 

Additionally, the application does not show you the value of the cosmetic content you’ve earned by opening chests, playing League of Legends events and passes, or by playing tournaments. 

The application also does not show you the value of the content that was gifted to your account as well. 

Manually find out the value of your League account

As we previously mentioned, Riot’s app does not calculate the value of gifted skins or skins you’ve earned through events and passes. If you’re itching to know the total worth of your account you have to manually calculate the value of your skins and other possessions. 

Use our formula 

We’ve come up with a formula that will help you accurately evaluate the value of your skins, depending on their tier:

RP Value
Value in EUR
Value in USD
520 RP
750 RP
975 RP
1350 RP
1820 RP
2775 RP
3250 RP
Based on these values, you should have an easy time determining the raw value of the skins that you own. If you’re struggling to find your skins and sort them go to your Inventory->Skins and sort them by tier(descending)

Keep in mind that most Mythic skins cannot be evaluated since they’re non-purchasable with RP and only obtainable by using 10 gemstones. However, they’re usually estimated to be more valuable than an ultimate skin (apart from the infamous Anniversary skin). 
You can use this same method when evaluating chromas while keeping in mind that each chroma costs 640RP (roughly 5€/5USD). Evaluating summoner icons is a bit more tricky since Riot gives a lot of freebie icons nowadays, but the ones you’ve purchased for 250RP are worth about 2€/2USD.
