Hello League of Legends Players,
By popular demand we have added a new type of boost for the less frequent player: Per-Win Boosts.
Maybe when you play League of Legends, you don't play a ton of games every night - or maybe you don't play every single day. If you're one of those players, we now have a boost that is a better deal for you. Now you can buy a boost that will give you 200% XP or 200% IP for 4 or even 10 wins.
At first we considered allowing players to buy per-game boosts, but losing a game is already rough (especially since sometimes it isn't even your fault), and we wanted to avoid extra rage because the loss meant your boost wasn't maximized. Instead, we decided to only boost wins, the games where you really want a boost because you are getting so much XP and IP.
How They Work (now the post gets long - so skip this if you don't care how they work)
Per-Win Boosts are available in the store in 4-win and 10-win quantities. Once you purchase them, the boost lasts for 4 wins or 10 wins. If you lose a match you won't get the boost applied, but you won't consume a "win" (much like the first win of the day bonus). So if you buy a per-win boost, then lose 3 games, then win 4, all 4 wins will be boosted (and the 3 losses will have normal IP and XP).
The rule of thumb the is that Per-Win Boosts will apply in any situation where you get IP or XP. The desired functionality is (if we haven't made any bugs) that Per-Win Boosts won't be applied to the following game types:
a. Games where the player loses
b. Games where the player leaves/disconnects (and doesn't rejoin)
c. Practice games with uneven teams on game start
d. Games that don’t last longer than 10 minutes
e. Practice games for players higher than level 11, that have played more than 4 practice games in that 24 hour period
Once you've purchased a per-win boost, it should apply to any other games than those listed above.
