It takes waaaay too long to get to level 30

I am level 25 right now.

I have played 277 games and have 135 wins (I always play by myself), 99% of my games are on Summoner's Rift.

The average game takes, let's say, 27 minutes. That's just a random number I picked.

So I have invested 7479 minutes into this game as an estimate, which equals about 125 hours played.

125 hours. And I'm still a pretty long ways away from being able to play ranked.

This takes way too long and I find it pretty absurd. I know, I know, blah blah, most people STILL aren't ready for ranked even after all these games, but it still shouldn't require 150 hours of gameplay to be able to ladder in my opinion. Tis crazy.

That's why you buy exp boost.

I'm embarrassed for the people that actually spend money on something like that.

So you're complaining, that the game has a very long lifespan?
If it bothers you that much, feel free to throw money at it, in order to shorten it.

It should take more time to hit 30 honestly.

With the amount of content, I don't think it is too absurd the time investment required to get in to ranked. You need to put that time in to the game anyway if you are planning to get to higher elo, and if you aren't planning to get to higher elo then you really aren't missing much by not playing ranked.

Edit: And bots shouldn't give experience past summoner level 15 or so. Tooooo many people that think this is a MMO where you grind to 30.

the leveling procedure also helps keep the number of trolls in ranked games down.

.... **** that. I'm tired enough as it is having to carry (not play with I mean lifting so hard in preparation of such weight) the Leona who rushes RoA or the "ranged adc pro" using boots of swiftness into bloodrazer and telling the rest of the team they suck.

I agree with the rest level 30 should take longer.
