Highest MMR in League of Legends

What is the highest rank in League of Legends?

The highest rank in League of Legends is called Challenger, and only 0.01% of all players manage to reach it. This rank is tough to get and even harder to maintain! Everyone wants to get there, so without playing every day, you will simply fall off your ranking position. Challenger players devote hundreds of hours each month to playing ranked games, practice, and testing the metagame. League of Legends is a significant part of these players’ everyday lives. Many of them are part of eSports teams and have already achieved something in the local competitive scene. 

What is the difference between Challenger and Grandmaster players?

The difference between Challenger and Grandmaster players is minimal. Both ranks represent the highest level gameplay and often play each other in tournaments. If you are a Grandmaster player and want to get into Challenger, you need to spend more time playing Ranked. However, your grind won’t be so easy as you will be up against people who play League of Legends full-time and take every match very seriously.

What is the highest MMR record in League of Legends?

We cannot provide a precise number of the highest MMR record in League of Legends, as it's not public, and no player knows what MMR they have. We can only assume that the players with the highest MMR on the server are the ones we see at the top of the leaderboards. As you may know, there are some websites, such as whatismymmr.com, that calculate the value of the MMR you have based on your all-time performance. However, on each of these sites, the value will be slightly different; none of them are accurate, as no one knows the exact rules for calculating MMR in League of Legends.

Top MMR players in League of Legends

We checked the MMR values for the current Top 1 player of each server using the aforementioned whatismymmr.com. Before we give you these numbers, it’s worth mentioning that the average players’ MMR in League of Legends is around 2000.

  • 쪼렙이다말로하자 — 3729 MMR (#1 KR, 1710 LP)
  • Razwen — 3578 MMR (#1 EUNE, 1805 LP)
  • Razørk Activoo — 3515 MMR (#1 EUW, 1478 LP, playing for Misfits Gaming)
  • From Iron — 3398 MMR (#1 NA, 1599 LP, playing for Team Liquid, known as CoreJJ) 

As you can see, the more players on the server, the more MMR you will need to get that sweet #1. We think that with each season, the score needed to reach Challenger and the top of the rankings will be much higher, as MMR virtually does not reset. That said, it's no surprise that the top of the ladder now is made up of League of Legends veterans who have been playing the game continuously for about 10 years or so.

Getting to the top of the first places of League of Legends’ leaderboards requires hard work and dedication. That 0.01% didn't just play the game; they dedicated a significant portion of their lives to it. Keep that in mind when you apply to become a Challenger, and if you do decide to make the journey, we're keeping our fingers crossed for you!
