I've recently started playing League of Legends, and lets face it, I'm not the best. However I do find that I am regularly hitting level 18 at roughly the same time as players with much better scores. Why is this, and why am I not penalized for my failings?
There are a number of reasons this could be happening
I am sure there could be more reasons, and also remember that 18 is the cap.. who is to say they would not be 20+ when you hit 18 if it didnt cap.
