You’ll soon be able to track your stats in League right in the official game client

It's like OP.gg, but probably buggier.

It’s strange that League of Legends, one of the largest games in the world (possibly the largest), still relies on third-party applications to track player stats.

If you want to see how you’re doing at a specific champion or another area of the game, you have to visit sites like OP.gg or Mobalytics. The fact that League’s been around for almost 10 years and it still doesn’t allow you to do any of those simple things for the sake of self-improvement doesn’t feel great, and apparently Riot agrees.

Starting in Patch 8.14, you’ll be able to view and track your stats and compare yourself to other players right in the official League game client, according to the latest PBE update.

Here’s hoping it isn’t as buggy as the client itself. Ah, who are we kidding? It’s going to be buggy.

There will now be a Stats tab on the client, and from there, you’ll be able to filter your games by queue types and games played. In order to pull any sort of detailed stats, you’ll need to have played at least five games on the champion you’re looking at, or in the queue type. Your stats scores will be split into three categories, including team play, income, and combat.

After you’ve pulled up your stats, you’ll be able to compare them with other players of different ranks, one of your friends, or an expert player in any of the same champions in the same roles. If you want to pull up any specific games while comparing, you can simply click the comparing graph on one of its points.

Because this feature is so massive, and because the last big feature didn’t exactly go as planned, there’s a chance this won’t come out in Patch 8.14, but instead in 8.15 or 8.16, or even later.
