How To Change Your Name In League Of Legends

How to Change Your Name in League of Legends for Free

Some people might not know this but you can get a name change for free in League of Legends. That said, this can be only a one-time exception and it must be done through the Riot Support. If you send them a ticket and use the title line “SUBJECT: Summoner Name Change”m they can make small changes to your name to include different spacing or capitalization. It’s a good way to save up the summoner name change fee if you happen to mess up your name while typing.

How to Change Your Name in League of Legends: Wild Rift

Unlike the PC version of League of Legends, Wild Rift uses a different profile update system and links your accounts using Riot ID. This ID serves as your username when playing game titles like Wild Rift, Legends of Runeterra, and VALORANT.

If you want to change your name, you can make tweaks directly on your Riot ID. Below are the full steps on  what you need to do:

  1. Go to the official RIOT login page here.
  2. Use your username (the one you set up when first making the account) and password to log in
  3. Click on the RIOT ID tab on the left side of the menu.
  4. Click on the small Edit button on the right to change your Riot ID.
  5. Enter your desired username and tag combination, then press Submit.

Your Riot ID (the combination of a username and a tag) has to be unique across all players and regions, so some names will not be available.  At that point, choose a different tag if you wish to maintain the same username.

How to Change Your Account Name in League of Legends

If you haven’t played League of Legends in a while and ended up becoming inactive, Riot will notify you to change or verify your RIOT username through an email. This change was implemented with the release of the new Riot game titles in the past few years, with the goal of unifying all the credentials into one single account. By doing so, a player can get access to multiple games with just one account.

If you haven’t received such an email, head over to this page to update it. The account name you edit will be used to log into all of RIOT’s games and doesn’t need to be the same as your summoner name or Riot ID but it won’t be visible to others. Once that is changed, however, you won’t have other chances to change the name. If you’re desperate for a name change, try to contact RIOT support and hope they can help you out with an account name change request by clicking here.

How to Check Your Name History in League of Legends

RIOT doesn’t track your account information changes beyond the previous three months. That said, you can still request your user data by submitting a ticket and verifying your account information. Once you do (and wait out the mandatory 30 days processing time), RIOT will send you a range of all your recent data, including the account changes. If you wish to look beyond the three months, however, I’m afraid there is no other way to find out.

How to change my Valorant Name?

VALORANT uses the same Riot ID used for Wild Rift. Since it’s connected to multiple game titles, changing one will also mean changing the nick on the other titles as well, so be careful. That said, here are the steps to change the name on VALORANT:

  1. Go to the official RIOT login page here.
  2. Use your account username and password to log in.
  3. Click on the RIOT ID tab on the left.
  4. Click on the small Edit button on the right.
  5. Enter your desired username and tag combination, then press Submit.

A Riot ID name and tag combination are unique across all players and regions so there might be high chances some of the popular nicknames are taken. If you want to maintain the same name portion, look to change the tag. Account usernames never expire. However, since these names are not visible to other players there is less of a reason to need to change them.
