With millions and millions of players playing League of Legends each day, chances are, you've tried your hand at the popular MOBA before. Just like trying any other video game.
However, sometimes when trying out a new game, or in this case, League of Legends, you just pick a name at random, creating problems for yourself down the line.
Well, if you're one of these players looking to change your League of Legends name then we've got you covered. Here's how to change your League of Legends name.
Rules to follow when changing your League of Legends name
Prior to pulling the trigger on changing your League of Legends name, it's worth knowing the rules of what your name can have.
Here are the rules players need to follow when changing their League of Legends name per Riot Games:
- Names must be at least 3 characters long and no more than 16 characters long.
- No player name can include the word "Riot" in it. (This includes variations we need to squint at, like RÍot.)
- Your name should not contain personally identifying information (like your real name or address). If a name is found to contain this info, it may be subject to change by Riot.
- Attempting to impersonate or pretend to be an eSports professional is not acceptable, even if the system allows the name to be selected. If found, these names may be changed.
