TL;DR: For the next two weeks there’s a chance to win 16x IP with a party of 5; 8x with 4; 6x with 3; 4x with 2; and no chance for a bonus playing solo.
“We all know playing with friends makes for a more friendly League, so we’re sweetening the pot for teaming up. For the next two weeks, queue up with friends both new and old to rack up IP with Party Rewards. The new system awards bonus multipliers based on the size of your premade party. In this trial period, we’ll look to see if features like this one can give you more opportunities to crack nexii with friends and make for positive games.
Here’s how it works:
Enter any matchmade queue with a premade party and the entire group earns a chance at multiplying the standard IP reward. Party Rewards work a lot like normal IP rewards–there’re different scales depending on the queue. For example, Summoner’s Rift queues award more IP than Twisted Treeline or Howling Abyss queues. There is a chance your group earns no Party Reward, but larger premade groups win higher tiers of IP rewards. Some lucky players will even earn rare, massive IP prizes. If you queue alone, you won’t be eligible for Party Rewards.
This table details the maximum multipliers for Party Rewards:
|Party size||Max jackpot|
|Party of one||N/A|
|Party of two||4x IP|
|Party of three||6x IP|
|Party of four||8x IP|
|Full team||16x IP|
For the next two weeks, Party Rewards is all yours. After the trial period, we’ll temporarily disable the feature and sort through the data and learn what the partying hath wrought. We’ll be back to talk more about the future of Party Rewards soon.”
