LoL Vision Score is a fairly new concept. Support-minded summoners will get their fair share of appreciation. Now they have a statistic at the end of the match that gives them credit for helping the team during the game.
Vision Score is a statistic that measures the player’s overall vision. What exactly is it? Riot Games’ Game Designer, Riot Gmang, recently arrived on the Nexus to explore further into the newest statistic.
What is LoL Vision Score?
“Vision Score is a loose measurement of vision game contribution, and can be ballparked as “about 1 point per minute of ward lifetime I’m responsible for providing/denying.” It tends to be in the 5-150 range,” said Riot Gmang. “So, if your vision score at the end of a game is 121, you can ballpark “my vision contribution this game was worth about 2 hours of ward lifetime.”
LoL Vision Score is earned in three methods, according to Riot Gmang. The first approach is through Ward Lifetime Provided, which simply states that each minute a ward is active and healthy adds one point to your vision score. You can also earn fractional points.
The second method to get LoL Vision Score is Ward Lifelong Denial. This is a bit less complicated. You earn one point for each minute of life remaining on the ward when you destroy it (and get the gold for it).
Vision Mechanics is the last technique to amass vision points. Vision Mechanics refers to the use of tools, skills, or equipment in order to create vision. You will continue to increase your vision score whether it’s through Ashe’s Hawkshot, a Scuttler Ward, Scryer’s Bloom, or Quinn’s Heightened Senses.
To be on top of your game we suggest you read these patch notes. So, what should your aim be? Riot Gmang has a suggestion for you and says, “A typical Vision Score may be single digits (a short game in which you’re not utilizing the trinket well) to over 100 (a long game with consistent sightstone use). “On shorter matches, vision-focused junglers tend to outperform sightstone supports, but on extended games, Sightstone supports have the upper hand.”
