Warning: Your League of Legends Summoner Name May Be Reclaimed
In an effort to free up summoner names for players, Riot will be freeing them up in the upcoming 1.73 patch for League of Legends. In addition, if there’s a name that you’ve coveted, Riot will be offering name changes at 50% off.
Inactive accounts are defined as any account under level 6 that have not been played since January 1, 2012. In order to retain the names on those accounts, you must login and play at least one game between now and Sunday, December 9 at 11:59 PM PST. However, if the deadline is missed, your account will still be active. You will have to choose a new summoner name when you login again. Please note that only inactive accounts will be at risk of forfeiting their summoner names.
Summoner name changes will cost only 650 RP between the release of Patch 1.73 and December 26. With Season 2 concluding in the recent World Championships and Season 3 around the corner, this might be a good time to re-brand your identity.
