LoLSkill was founded by Linnun in July 2013. But the idea of looking up matches and summoner data goes back further than the idea of LoLSkill. Linnun was already leading a German Teamspeak server for League of Legends players for a few years when one day he got the idea to make a bot for that Teamspeak server. The idea was to make the bot notice when someone goes into a game and edit the channel description to reflect the match that was currently ongoing within that channel.
After a while just displaying the game information wasn't enough anymore, and Linnun started to calculate and predict win chances of ongoing match. But in order to measure a win chance, you had to know how good a certain summoner actually performs with the champion he is currently playing – and that's how the first version of SkillScores developed.
Eventually the idea came up to create a website with these information. Since Linnun had the data, why not share it with the entire League of Legends community? This is how LoLSkill was born and it got a surprisingly high popularity within a short time.
Since the launch LoLSkill has grown pretty fast and quickly turned from a private homepage into a publicly known website. Thanks to everyone for supporting us!
