How Much Time Have I Wasted on LOL

Curious to know the amount of time you’ve spent playing the League of Legends ever since you created your account? Then stick with us. Here, we’ll help you figure out how much time you have wasted on LoL

The internet has revolutionized the gaming industry with more online games. One of the games that stand out is the League of Legends (LOL). It has been 12 years since the release of LoL, but the game still dominates the world of internet gaming. In LOL, two teams compete against each other after choosing their five powerful champions.

The objective of the game is to destroy the opposing team's base. You will fight against different monsters and have more than 140 characters at your disposal. Being a multiplayer title, LoL is super engaging and interactive. The League of Legends is addictive as it is time-consuming.

Once a player is drawn into the mire of the game, they lose track of the passing of time. Before they know it, they will have lost hundreds, if not thousands, of hours they would have otherwise spent learning some new skill sets and improving their lives.

With that being said, there are different ways to track how much time you’ve wasted on the League of Legends. In this guide, we’ve compiled some straightforward options that you can use to monitor the amount of time you spend playing LoL.

Check them out…


1. LoL Game Port Query

Riot Games does not provide a straightforward way to check your total playtime. However, there’s a way to figure that out real quick via the LoL Game Port Query located in the game’s user interface.

To find your total playtime during a particular season, you’ll have to locate the ‘Stats tab' via your gaming account. You should keep in mind that this option does not include data before 2018.

Follow the steps below to know how much time you’ve wasted playing League of Legends using the LoL Game Port Query:

Step 1: Open the League of Legends game, log in to your account, and then proceed to open your profile.

Step 2: Go to the ‘STATS’ tab in the profile menu.

There you should be able to see the time you’ve spent playing LOL’s ranked games during a particular season. Note that this option only captures time spent in a particular season only. So you won’t be able to tell the total amount of time you’ve spent playing LoL since you created your account via the game's STATS interface.

If that’s your interest area, there are a couple of third-party tools that you can use. Two of the most popular ones include Wasted on LoL or the Game Record Query on OP.GG, details below….


2. Wasted on LoL

Wasted on LoL provides an easy way of finding how many hours you have played the League of Legends. The platform has a beautiful and friendly interface with additional features like finding the top players in different regions based on their game time.

By using the Wasted on LOL website, you can also find statistics of other Riot games. That is because the platform directly interacts with the Riot Games servers. Wasted on LOL provides an approximate amount of time you've played LOL. The stats indicated are an estimation of the time of activity since the time the particular LoL account was first created.

However, Wasted on LoL has put access restrictions for gamers from China and Southeast Asia. If you’re from any of these regions, you cannot use this tool to estimate the total amount of time spent on LoL.

That said, here are the steps to follow to find out how much time you have spent on League of Legends using the “Wasted on LoL” tool:

Step 1: Start by visiting Wasted on LOL website.

Step2: Next, provide your “Summoner Name” then choose your region.

Step 3: Click on ‘How Much Time I Wasted on LOL?’ A window will appear detailing the amount of time, in hours and days, you’ve spent playing the game.

Note that this platform also compares your statistics against other gamers in your region and all the League of Legends players in general and provides your rank.

And that’s not all. The platform also uses the time spent on LoL to approximate the number of movies you could have watched, books read, or the distance you could have covered walking or jogging during the same period you spent gaming.


3. Game Record Query

Since WOL does not provide statistics on all regions, you can use other alternatives to know how much time you've wasted on LoL. One such alternative that’s not region-specific is Game Record Query.  Besides showing the approximate amount of time spent on LoL, the platform also allows you to search and compare the statistics of multiple players against your own.

To find out how much time you’ve wasted on Lol using Game Record Query, proceed as follows:

Step 1: Visit the OP.GG website.

Game Record Query

Step 2: Select your region and provide the name of your League of Legends profile. Your recent searches are displayed in the ‘Recent Search' tab or the ‘Favourites' tab for summoners you marked as favorites.

Step 3: After confirming your profile's avatar, click on ‘How many hours did you play LOL?'

On the next screen, you will see the time you’ve spent on LoL in Days, Hours, and minutes. On this site, the statistics are broken down to the amount of time spent on different ranked games per season.

And Like “Wasted on LoL,” this site also gives you an estimate of the number of books you could have read how much you could have earned, among other statistics, if you had not played the game.

In addition, you can also assess how you performed against your opponents in current and previous games.

Since LoL is a fascinating, thrilling, and enjoyable game, it is not a complete waste of time.

However, you should learn to manage your time effectively. You will not want to become addicted to the game. A player can avoid spending too much time on LOL by taking breaks to engage in other essential activities in their lives.
