League of Legends is meant to be played with friends. Here’s how you can find players to join your party.

Tired of being alone in your game? It’s more fun to play League of Legends alongside like-minded individuals, right?

While League of Legends has one of the largest active playerbases, it’s also one of the most toxic gaming communities. As the game is fairly complex to learn, the toxicity becomes a significant hurdle for new players to progress. With this in mind, it’s critical that players find some stability with a core group of gaming friends to queue up together.

Z League’s Team Up is a way to find friends to play with, so you don’t have to queue up with toxic people every single game. Check it out before your next game to find the perfect gaming partner and build an epic solid gaming community that is always ready to game. You can take a look at how Z League compares to other top LFG apps in our Top 5 LFG apps article.

If you’re part of an active social community or Discord server like League Gaming with Friends, The Last Drop | 18+ Arcane, or Rift Palace devoted to League, you’ll see heaps of people posting an “LFG” to look for competitive teams where they meet others at the same skill level – translating into an enjoyable experience while also allowing them to strengthen their own growth within the game due to increased competition!

If you’re new to LoL, you’ll need to gain a certain level and have enough XP to unlock maps, game modes, and then you can play with anyone to help you climb the ladder of the ranked system.

Here are the game modes that will become available to you as you gain levels:

  • Normal 5v5 Summoner’s Rift (Blind Pick) will open up at level 3.
  • ARAM 5v5 Howling Abyss will open up at level 3.
  • Practice Tool will open at level 9.
  • Normal 5v5 Summoner’s Rift (Draft) will open up at level 10 when you have at least 20 champions available.
  • Ranked Solo/Duo and Ranked Flex queues for 5v5 Summoner’s Rift will open at level 30 when you acquire at least 20 champions.

I’m sure I’m not the only one excited for the new team deathmatch mode coming soon with the summer event 2023, similar to the deathmatch from Nexus Blitz. It is a mode that involves 4 teams of 2 players (2v2v2v2) who get matched against each other in a series of deathmatch-like rounds.


Understanding Vision Score in League of Legends is critical to competitive play.

If you’re new to League of Legends, you might be wondering what Vision Score is all about. The Vision Score is a metric that indicates how much of your team’s vision has been influenced by your play. It’s an indicator of a player’s contribution to their team’s control of the map. Mechanically, players can increase their Vision Score by placing wards as well as removing enemy wards (denying vision).

While the formulation for Vision Score has not been officially released by Riot, a fairly accurate estimation for Vision Score is:

  • 1 point per minute of ward lifetime provided
  • 1 point per minute of ward lifetime denied

Certain champion abilities that provide vision will also impact Vision Score. For example, Ashe’s Hawkshot or Kallista’s Sentinel, will reveal portions of the map for the benefit of your teammates in scouting out the enemy location.

The importance of vision cannot be understated in the game of League of Legends. As the game is fairly balanced as far as team vs. team games go, it doesn’t take much to tilt a game assuming all players are playing at a similar level. It’s all about gaining an information advantage over the enemy. For example, knowing that the enemy Jungle is top side will enable your bottom lane champions to play more aggressively and take bigger (but calculated) risks.
