Doran's Lab

Combining gaming and data science to yield new insights about the worldwide phenomenon, League of Legends

Our Mission

  • — To expose millions of LoL players to statistics concepts by showing how data can be used to answer questions about the game. We are doing this in the form of an awesome online experience that includes articles, graphics, and interactive elements about topics such as:
    • Predicting game outcomes based on champion select
    • How to measure if a champion is overpowered
    • Unraveling Riot’s “crit smoothing” algorithm
    • … and any other questions YOU think of!

Who We Are

We are a team of passionate NCSU undergraduates and mentors working together to analyze League of Legends data in totally new ways! Founded in December 2017, we meet weekly to share ideas, brainstorm, and create content for our website, now available to the public.
