In League of Legends, All Random All Mid, more commonly referred to as ARAM, is a popular game mode where players receive a random champion and all fight in a singular lane. The only exception to the random champs (other than trading) is the ability to reroll your pick.
How do you get rerolls in ARAM? Players receive 1 reroll every 2 games played, increasing up to 1 reroll for every game played upon owning all the champions. Players cannot have more than 2 rerolls at one time.
Let’s look at exactly how rerolls work, the exact math behind how often you will receive a new reroll and what you can do to increase the total number of rerolls you can get.
How Rerolls Work in ARAM?
In ARAM, a reroll is a function that can be performed in Champ Select where the player’s current champion is added to their team’s available champion pool and the player receives a new champion that wasn’t already available for either team.
The function of the reroll is to allow players to switch their champion to a new one in case they really don’t want to play their current champion, no other team’s available champion is worth taking or no one is willing to trade.
Players have up to 2 available rerolls at any given time and accumulate more rerolls by playing more games (discussed in detail below).
A rerolled champion can only be a champion that the player currently owns, is present in the ARAM champion free roster (posted below) and is not currently a champion available to either team.
That last point prevents the ability for there to be the same champion on both teams or multiple of the same champions in any team.
Just like regular champions, rerolled champions can be traded with other players or be switched out for a champion present in the available champion pool (also known as the bench) present at the top of a player’s hub.
How Do You Get Rerolls?
Rerolls are earned when a player earns 150 ARAM points. Whenever a game is completed, all players will receive between 65 to 200 points based on the number of champions they have available to them.
When we say available to them, I don’t want you to get confused between the team’s available champions to be played. Rather, each individual player’s access to rollable champions at the start of the lobby is taken into account that aren’t present in the ARAM free roster.
This is because if you have fewer rollable champions and you received more rerolls, you could abuse the system to relatively get the same handful of broken champions every time.
Instead, the system is primarily in place for players who have a lot of champions and they likely don’t enjoy playing a large portion of them.
ARAM Points Explained
ARAM points are a system hidden to the players that evaluate how often you will receive a reroll after the completion of the game.
The formula to determine your ARAM Points is:
ARAM Points = Previous ARAM Points + 65 + 1.5 * Available Champions to Roll
(The image above is from the wiki page, however the formula I wrote is more clear and complete)
The constant values are 65, the total size of the ARAM free roster, and 1.5, the multiplier to the available champion pools outside the free roster.
Once the resultant is or exceeds 150, the total points are reduced by 150 in exchange for 1 reroll credit. If you already have 2 credits, those 150 points will be discarded.
As a result, players can only get up to 1 reroll credit per game consistently (you can get up to 2 occasionally as long as you earn more than 150 ARAM points per game).
The exception to this rule is if Riot Games creates at least 222 champions, which is far from likely any time soon.
Remember, available champions are champions that the individual player is able to roll at the start of the lobby (excluding free-roster champions). Therefore, if you own champions that are already part of the free ARAM roster, that will not increase your ARAM points earned as they would have been available to you even if you didn’t purchase the champion.
Essentially, you need to own 57 champions that are not present in the ARAM free roster to ensure you get 1 reroll point per game. That doesn’t sound like a lot but the caveat is “not in the ARAM free roster”, as most of the champions in the free pool are the low costing champions you likely already bought.
If you want to be on the safe side, as long as you have purchased 122 champions, it is impossible for you not to have 57 champions that aren’t present in the 65 ARAM free champion pool (at the time of this writing, owning 122 champions outside the 65 ARAM pool is impossible).
The following is the total list of free to play champions available in ARAM:
- Jarvan IV
- Lee Sin
- Master Yi
- Miss Fortune
- Twisted Fate
This list is static, meaning it doesn’t change, unlike the normal game’s free champion rotation.
Now that you know all that, let’s calculate your exact ARAM Points.
Calculating Your Exact ARAM Points and Rerolls Earned Per Game
With the ARAM points formula, you can calculate your own ARAM points earnings per game.
The math itself is simple, do the following steps:
- Determine how many champions you own that aren’t available in the ARAM free roster list (provided above). If you aren’t sure how many you don’t own from the roster list, use the number of champions you own and subtract 35 for a rough estimate
- Multiply that number by 1.5
- Add 65 to the number
- Subtract your answer from 150
- Look at the number. If your result is equal to 0, you will always get a reroll point after a game. If it’s is less than 0, you will get at least 1 reroll point per game and occasionally 2 reroll points after a game. If it’s greater than 0 but less than 75, you will get 1 reroll every other game. If it’s greater than 75, you will get 1 reroll every 3 games and occasionally every 2 games
The minimum number of points you can get is 65 if you owned no champions outside the ARAM free roster. This means you’d end up having to play about 3 games just to get a reroll credit.
Once you get up to at least 6 champions outside of the ARAM free roster (an achievable feat for everyone), you will get 1 reroll every 2 games. After 57 champions, you will very rarely build up to get an occasional 2 reroll credits after a game (300 games at 57 champions for 2 rerolls).
This continues to build based on the number of champions you unlock for your account that isn’t in the ARAM free roster pool.
If you don’t really want to do the math but want a rough estimate in terms of how far you are from getting 1 reroll credit per game played, just learn the total champions you own and look at the table below.
These are the total ARAM points earned per game based on the number of rollable champions outside the ARAM free roster:
|Number of Champions (excluding champions in ARAM free roster)||
ARAM Points Per Game
Currently at the time of this writing, you can only have 90 champions outside the ARAM free roster, resulting in 200 points at most per game.
That means if you own all the champions, after each game you’ll get 1 reroll credit except your 4th game where you will get 2.
How to Get More Rerolls in ARAM?
To get more rerolls in ARAM, you can increase your total number of owned champions to increase your reroll earning from 1 for every 2 games played to 1 for every game played. You can also play more overall games to increase your reroll count.
Owning More Champions
As we mentioned in the above formula, your total number of rerolls is dependant on your number of total champions.
When owning nearly none, you will get only 1 reroll every other game, but once you get nearly all the champions, it goes up to at least 1 reroll per game.
This is an incremental increase, meaning you will get more overall ARAM points per champion owned and you need 150 ARAM points per reroll credit.
Below are some tips for increasing your champion pool:
- Do you own all the cheap champions? Go to the in-game shop and sort the unowned champions from cheapest to most expensive. From there you’ll want to buy the cheapest ones you don’t own
- When purchasing champions, don’t waste Blue Essence on the free-roster champions as they won’t increase your ARAM points earned per game (free ARAM roster listed above)
- Whenever you get an unowned champion from a loot-box, besides ARAM free roster champions, don’t disenchant it. Instead, upgrade it to a full champion as you will overall save on Blue Essence and move one step closer to getting all the champions unavailable from the ARAM free roster
- For the owned champions in your loot page, don’t reroll them. You will lose overall Blue Essence and reduce your ability to get all the champions quickly. Not to mention you have the chance to roll a ARAM free roster champion
This is going to be your best method in making your reroll earnings more efficient for each game you play in ARAM.
Playing More Games
An obvious one is if you want more credits, you will just have to play more games. While you are playing these games, you don’t want to use any credits, because that’s the whole point.
Perhaps when you play with friends you decide to never reroll because you can have fun with any champion (besides Udyr, never pick Udyr).
Then once you’ve played about 2 to 4 games with them and you want to play alone, you can cash in those reroll credits where needed.
This is a great way to ensure you always have enough credits whenever you decide to run some lonesome ARAM games 😊.
