Level Beyond 30

By Riot Cactopus

We’re removing the level 30 cap, and the new cap is… infinity! We’re also replacing the IP grind with a revamped rewards system that levels up with you.

Level Up, Get Loot

Instead of getting IP after every game, you'll now receive an unlocked chest each time you level up. Capsules contain champ shards and blue essence, and if you hit special milestone levels, you'll earn special rewards like gemstones or rare emotes.

IP Turns Blue

To tie all these changes together, we're connecting the leveling and loot systems by merging IP and blue essence. The newer, bluer essence will work in all the places IP and BE worked before, including loot and the champion store. And everything in the store still costs the same as it did in the old, IP-based system—for example, it’s still 6300 BE for a newer champ like Kayn.

These are major changes to some of the oldest systems in League and we’ll be keeping a close eye on them. We’ll continue to iterate and improve these systems to ensure the new foundations of League remain strong.

As you level beyond 30, let us know how the new system feels and remember to open your capsules!
