Moving on to Garena from NA in LOL

League of Legends - Downloading
Seems like yesterday, i installed and started playing League of Legends online on North America server. But soon at Level 12 i discovered low ping Garena server in Singapore. Without thinking i switched to new server and now i am level 15 here. I used to get 300-400 ping on NA server in India whereas Garena server has 100-140 ping for me which is pretty good.

And all new Indian players join Garena and old players are shifting to Garena everyday. Many custom games for Indian players with ip and rp prizes are organised all the time. So, it's a new start and i am gonna become a pro soon.

    1. Well if you are in India, you should play on Garena. 80% of Indians play on this server. You will have to download the lol client again though. But it would be better to start playing on Garena as soon as possible because we get better pings here and everyone in India is switching to Garena.

    1. it will take the same amount of time again. :(
      however your pings seem good. i used to get 300+ ping on na. Sometimes 400+
      You may want to stick to the na server because sometimes there are lot of ping and disconnect issues on garena.
      What i will recommend is - keep playing on na, when have some time. download garena client link- http://lol.garena.com/ and compare your pings on both servers. If you like you can switch to garena or stay on na or you can play on both servers at same time.

  3. NA servers have this feature that if a player dcs.. he can reconnect to the game as long as the game is on.. is the same feature in GG client too?
    another thing about gg is.. if we r a low lvl player.. hosts will kik/ban .. unlike NA .. lemme see.. thnx for the help anyways..

    1. well the game is exactly same so same rules apply. And host will kick/ban on custom games only. for normal games with random teammates you will be matched with same or similar level players. So you keep leveling up till level 30 and keep playing with similar level players. You start with no runes/masteries and level1 so just keep playing and practicing and level up.

  4. when does Garen become available? .. :-\ cant wait to play him...

    1. another thing, everything like new champ/skin available on na server comes to garena 1 or 2 or weeks or even more late. About Garen - his upgrade is only visual. I don't think his stats or skills will have any effect, except for his q which may be little more damaging. So can play old garen, its same as new one.

  5. m talking about the old garen bro.. how many rp/ip i need to unlock him/buy him? is der a way to get him any sooner?
    m level 3 so....

    1. Well i can't say bro because champs are priced differently on different servers. Here on garena Garen is only 450 ip i think, so very easy to buy. And i will recommend buying champs with ip only. because skins can be bought only with rp. So when you have your favorite champ which you play all the time, so can easily buy his skin with rp. I'll recommend keep playing with free champs available until you have ip to buy garen. :)

    1. Unfortunately there is no server for India for League of Legends and there is no chance for India getting any soon. Majority of Indian players play on Garena(SEA) server. Download garena plus and then download League of Legends from garena plus link - http://intl.garena.com/

    1. Shouldnt be much difference but not sure about that. garena should be best if the connection stays stable with ping staying below 100.

  10. I play on EUW right now. My ping averages at around 120ms. I'm ranked silver and I already have a lot of champions. Will it be worthwhile to switch to Garena ?

    1. 120ms is really good. and playing on official servers is always better than garena. So, if you don't experience any lag, stay on EUW.

  15. Hello, I'm From Pakistan and im Playing on EUW server for a year now. The ping is 200 to 300. What ping I can get on Garena? Worth Shifting?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It should be worth shifting. 200 to 300 is too high. Usecommand prompt and try this: "ping lol.garena.com"
      I am getting 120ms. You should get around same.
