For the first time in the NA solo queue history, a player has reached over 2k LP, and that player is Tony Top.

There are many game modes in League of Legends. But the primary game mode that most players play is Summoner’s Rift Ranked.

There are two types of rank queues in the game currently. They are solo/due and flex queue. In solo queue, players can usually queue alone, though they can party up with one more additional member. And players can party up to 5 players in the flex queue. The flex queue is mainly seen as a casual mode to play with friends, while the solo queue is the more competitive mode.

Riot increased each tier’s overall LP gain and loss not too long ago. The reason for that change was to incentivize players to reach high ranks. Moreover, since this season will have two splits and each split will have a soft rank reset, Riot wants every player to achieve their desired ranks soon. Even after the first LP change, Riot again increased the LP gain slightly in patch 13.6.

And overall, Riot is satisfied with the currently ranked changes. Not only that, many players could push beyond their current rank and ascend higher. Recently, a player by the name of Tony Top was able to break the solo queue LP record. Not only that, but he is also the first player to reach beyond 2k LP in the solo queue.
