See How Many Hours and How Much Money You've Spent in League of Legends
Being one of the most popular games in the world, League of Legends has managed to squeeze a lot of time and money out of 67 million active monthly players. As a free-to-play game that tries to encourage users to spend real money through microtransactions, players have two choices: spend a lot of time grinding for Influence Points to unlock the Champions and Runes that they need to progress, or spend real money on Riot Points to buy them (as well as many other goodies).
Now in its seventh season, it might be a good time to look back on just how much you've put into the game. The answer may surprise you.
In this guide, we're going to go over how you can see the exact amount of time and money you've invested in League of Legends.
Find Out How Much Time You've Spent on League of Legends
Although Riot doesn't personally provide this information to users, it is data that they store in their API, and there are third-party sites with API access that will allow you to view this information about your account. One example is LolTimePlayed.
You can go to this website, type in your Summoner Name, and it'll show you how much time you've spent on League of Legends, broken down by match type. It also gives you a worldwide ranking for your time played.
There's even a page that shows the top 1,000 players in terms of time spent in-game. At the top of the list is an EUW player who has invested 14,782 hours on the game. That's pretty insane.
Find Out How Much Money You've Spent on League of Legends
This data comes from the Riot Games website itself. On the privacy section of their site, you can log in to your account and see some advanced details -- including the total amount of money that you've spent on the game throughout your career as a player on the Rift.
Further down the page are some more specific statistics -- like your total Champion kills, assists, wins, and so on.
It's worth noting that there is a button at the bottom of this page that says "Looking for more?" which gives details on how you can get some very sensitive data about your League of Legends account.
As it states, it requires a handwritten letter and a $5 fee. However, this allows you to see your report history, detailed transactions and chat logs, login history, account changes, and even more specific information. A lot of players have no idea that you can see your report history, and this is how.
