Master Rank game data. No noobs allowed!

About This Data

This dataset contains information of over 100000 games played in the Masters rank. This information includes the match’s game id, duration, and both teams’ kills and objectives, such as first blood, first tower, first baron, total number of dragon kills, total wards placed and killed, total kills, assists, and deaths, total gold gained, and more. This dataset was collected from Kaggle and can be found here. The data can be used to visualize how games at high ranks play out and look at the many factors that could go into a team’s win or loss, like any correlation on which objective specifically helps a team win.

Things to try in the data set:

Group Data

Roll data up into groups of values within a column to look for trends. Place groups inside of groups to drill down another level, then group again!

Filter Data

Use the filters to narrow down the file to the values that interest you most. Only show values that include, exclude, contain, or are greater than a value (to name a few). Then add another level of filtering with AND / OR logic to dive deeper.

Search Data

Not sure where to start? Use search to find values in the file and then go back and filter or group the entire data set down to just that value.

Choose Average at the bottom of the screen to see the average game duration.

Key Insights

Overview

League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) released in 2009 by Riot Games but is still going strong with a dedicated fanbase and new players ever since the release of the animated series Arcane based on the lore of two of the playable characters in the game. In the game, two teams of five battle against each other playing as characters, known as champions, each with their own special ability sets and roles, and fight to be the first to destroy the other team's base, or nexus.  The game includes a ranking system where players are placed into 9 different tiers to match players based on skill level.


The game has a large popularity in the esports world and individual players like Faker have become well known among League players as being the greatest of all time. Due to the large assortment of champions, skill sets, and objectives, there are many factors that go into a team winning in the end.
