How do you determine the results?
BoG is connected with the API (an interface, which allows external developers to retrieve data) of League of Legends, so we can retrieve the games data automatically. Through the API we create a nice experience for the user and an easy win determination for us.
How can I check my opponents’ strengths/skill level?
By showing you the opponents LKS value you are able to make a rough estimation of his strength. As long as your LKS value isn’t too far away of your opponent’s one the match should be balanced. Do not forget that your opponents’ strengths also depends on which champion he selects and how much experience he has with him, how often he has played with him and how long he is playing League of Legends in total. At a later time we are going to launch the BoG score. With the BoG score we want to detect smurfs.
What is the LKS value?
The LoL King Score (shortly LKS) depends on the league you are in and the reached league points (LP). Every division has its own basic value: bronze player - 800, silver – 1.150, gold – 1.500, platinum – 1.850, diamond/master/challenger – 2.200. To rise up to a higher division, you need to run through all 5 stages of a division. By accomplishing one stage the gamer earns 70 points. Per LP 0,7 points are received.
Score = basic value of each division + accomplished stage * 70 + LP * 0,7
Sample calculation of a gold II player with 45 LP:
For the gold division he receives 1.500 points. Additionally he earns 3 * 70 = 210 points as stage V, IV and III are passed. Together with the 45 LP we get 0,7 * 45 = 31,5. Summing up we have the LKS of 1.742.
LKS = 1.500 + 3 * 70 + 45 * 0,7 = 1.742 (rounded up)
How can I communicate with other players?
You are able to constantly use the chat function at the BoG platform. You have the possibility to contact your friends in the private chat. In the all chat you can ask and pursue questions and comment on them if you want to. If you don´t need the chat any more just minimize it.

What is a smurf?
A smurf is a player who is not using his original/main account or using intentional a low elo account to hide his strength. A smurfs has an unusual good performance compared to players on the accounts elo (lower elo). He has often a lot of kills, good cs and doesn’t need a lot of games to have exceptional scores in the tournaments.
What are you doing with smurfs?
If we define a player as a smurf, we will ban him without any discussion and exception. Be aware that smurfs won’t get paid. We check every player who is doing a cash out request. So even if a smurf is winning a tournament he won’t be able to get his cash.
Do I need a team?
No, you don’t. You can play everything from 1vs1 to 5vs5. Of course it’s more fun with your friends, but you can team up with other players. Join an already created match or create one by yourself.
Can I win as a bronze or unranked player?
Of course you can. It doesn’t matter in which league you’re playing. It’s more important to search for an opponent with almost the same skill level like yours. Therefore you should use the LKS value as an orientation. Analyze your opponents in advance by checking his match history to increase your chances of winning. At the end it’s just your performance that matters, because League of Legends is a pure game of skill.
