Learn more: What is Ping (latency) ? Basically, ping is the time, in milliseconds, it takes for a data packet with the information requested by the user to reach the League servers of Legends, in this case, and return to the player's computer.
Check out some tips to help this information exchange.
Use a wired connection
As much as the call for the future is wireless, in many cases the wireless option is no better than a cable connection. An example is bluetooth headphones: they are practical, offer more mobility, but they still fail, chop the sound and in most cases the quality is lower than a connection via the auxiliary cable.
The same thing happens with the internet connection. Wi-Fi is subject to interference from other electronic devices and even walls midway between the router and the computer.
This interference results in greater chances of packet loss when compared to a wired network, which does not suffer from barriers in the environment. That's why it is recommended to use this type of connection in order to improve the ping in LoL.

If there is no way to connect the cable, it is advisable to shorten the distance between the computer and the router, avoiding walls and other electronic equipment.
Close programs that use the internet
It is common to compare data packets browsing the internet to cars on a street: the more cars on the street, the more congested the traffic. It's the same with packages. The more the internet is being used while someone is playing League of Legends, the more packets are sent and the longer it takes for the magic to happen.
The recommendation is to close all programs that use the internet in the background, whether streaming music, open browser tabs, torrenting, the program to chat with friends online.
Of course, you don't have to give up everything to be the best in League of Legends, the idea is to test until you find an ideal profile: start by closing everything and opening gradually, one by one, by priority, the programs you need run at the same time as LoL to see if the ping will improve.
It's worth remembering that it's no use doing this on a computer if other devices (computers, cell phones, tablets, TV) on the same network continue to make heavy use of the internet, whether that series on Netflix or YouTube videos.
The Wall of Fire
The Firewall serves to protect users from dubious external connections. It blocks incoming network ports, with the exception of those used by programs installed on the computer, based on a list of trusted software.
Riot Games does the work of contacting the developers of these firewalls so that League of Legends is automatically added to the exceptions list, but it is still possible for LoL to be blocked by, for example, a lack of update.
For this reason it is important to keep installed operating systems and antivirus software up to date. In addition to ensuring user safety, it may not be an issue when it comes to improving LoL's ping.
The big network world of computers
Not everything is within reach. The problem with ping could also be in the path the data packet takes between the computer and the Riot Games server.
There is a wide variety of internet providers in addition to the major telephony operators in Brazil and they may be the only provider option for some user profiles.
It is worth trying to talk to them to find out if there is a problem with the network or what can be done to improve the quality of the signal that arrives at your house. If it doesn't improve, if possible, you can still try switching providers.
