News LolKing's Season 3 Changes Are Live

by Ashelia on January 31, 2013
A fresh season is upon us, summoners! With season 3 starting, Riot has introduced many new changes including the removal of the elo system. We are happy to announce that we've been working the past month on site features to help you navigate the uncharted waters of season 3! On this note, we are proud to introduce some profile changes that compliment Riot's brand new system.

Riot's Season 3 Changes

For those of you who may have missed it, Riot unveiled their new system for ranked in season 3. It hit the servers this morning.
In short:
  • Players and teams are now placed into a league
  • Leagues are assigned to a skill tier and a division
  • Winning and losing now causes you to gain and lose League Points
This means ranked is more accessible than ever to summoners who want to prove themselves on the Fields of Justice!

Profile Changes

Want to know your tier? How about your division? Or maybe how many League Points you have? Our profiles will now showcase all the new changes so that tracking your personal progress through divisions is easier than ever. You will be able to look up everything you need to at LolKing as usual.

LolKing Score (LKS)

With Riot's new system, we really wanted to make sure users got a grasp on what their division and league really meant. Since elo no longer exists and cannot be found in the client, we decided to use Riot's awesome new system to create an accurate representation of your progression through the leagues called LolKing Score (LKS).
With LKS, we have a formula that takes your League Points, division, league, and other factors into account to create a numerical value that will lend guidance to your progress throughout the season. This ultimately allows us to still give you neat features like last season's elo charts that track your progression.
LKS will show up on our site in many places. Since right now it is a brand new feature, we will constantly be adapting the formula to make it as accurate as possible to reflect your standing in League of Legends.

There are many things on this site.. Don't call it useless, just because there is no win/loss ratio.

Win/loss ratio is useless, someone who wins all 10 of their placements and starts in 1700 but eventually loses a bunch of games and gets to 1500 with a negative w/l is much better than the guy who lost all his placements and climbed to 1200 with a high w/l

On my profile account there seems to be something wrong with one of the toon pictures. I believe it to be Zin Xhao but I'm not sure. Anyways it shows all of the numbers (Kills etc) but not the toon picture it appears black) You can check out what I mean by going to Profile OPblue.

you should take K:D:A is your first priority, i say this because YOUR skill level should be detriment by your average score (not just K:D also the assist for all the supports out there) lets say i have a average K:D:A on 5:3:10 and i am only in bronze 1 league then the LKS should be higher than an average bronze 1 player that maybe have 3:5:7 K:D:A this is just my opinion thou :)

K/D/A has little to nothing to do with how skilled you are. You could have a high K/D/A, but only play against bad players, for example.

But the fact is, you don't pick against whom you play (i.e. you will play against good and bad players), and if you maintain a high KDA ratio throughout all your games, it is likely you're a good player. Whereas whether you win or not is more reflective of the team effort (we all get trolls >.

This isn't true at all, ive seen plenty of people who deserve to be 11-1300 Elo with a 1.5kdr+ because the only thing they know how to do is lane or get kills, Elo shows simply how well you can win a game, not how many kills you can get.

Yo, your lolking score seems to be off by a somewhat large margin, for me at least, is it based on only your current division with no heed to MMR? I say this because it isn't unusual for me to go to solo Q and end up with a lot of high division golds on my team vs a team with a platinum, or multiple platinums, as was my last game, yet My lolking is a good 200 or so under the enemys plats despite me being 2nd pick.

Also my lolking is almost identical to my friend who is in my same division, yet there are times when we duo that we are on opposite ends of the pick screen.

Perhaps it would be possible to make a system that takes into account opponent lolking to make up for the gap between MMR and division/tier?
