I was browsing the statistics on LoLKing and found something odd.


On Howling Abyss (ARAM map), the Cookie, given to every player at the beginning of the game, is not exactly 50% win/loss. (We are talking about 50.15%)

How could this happen? How can an item that everybody (event the afks) gets every game doesn't have a 50% win rate?

The champion Rengar does not receive the Poro Snax, instead he has his bonetooth necklace trinket. This would explain the small gap in wins-loses.


That stats are based on game ending items. Not everyone ends the game with the cookie, as some people feed it to Poros.
Conclusion: Don't feed the Poro and your odds at winning increases.


Your premise is flawed, the cookie is not given to every player, it is acquired by players with a certain mastery. The higher win rate, in this context, indicates that the mastery is probably slightly better than average.

  • Actually he is not talking about the Biscuit from masteries, it's the Poro-Snax which is given at the beginning of every ARAM game regardless of masteries. Nov 27, 2014 at 7:39
  • Ah, that makes sense
