Things have changed. Gone are the days of Summoner Names! Since November 2023, League of Legends has used Riot IDs as your in-game identifier. But that doesn't mean you're stuck with the name you picked at signup. If you're itching for a fresh start, this guide will show you how to quickly update your Riot ID.

Be creative while still adhering to Riot Games' guidelines.


Many players confuse these terms. Let me explain it in simple terms:

  • Riot Account Username (Login Name): This is your unique ID used to log in to your Riot account. It's hidden from other players for security reasons. Usernames are eligible for a one-time change only so it's best to be cautious when updating your Riot account. Riot Support may offer exceptions in rare cases. Reach out to them for extraordinary circumstances.
  • Riot ID (Previously called Summoner Name): This is your in-game persona and the name everyone sees in LoL - your friends, foes, and everyone in between. This is also displayed in other games by Riot Games. The Riot ID can be changed once every 90 days.

Think of it like this: your Riot Account Username is your secret agent code name, while your Riot ID or Summoner name is your public alias.

Embrace Your New Identity!

With a fresh Riot ID, you can craft a new narrative within the LoL community. If you're looking for inspiration on your next name, check out our Hall of Fame for the best LoL names such as Ahri Potter, 404ShacoNotFound, UnoDosThresh and 61 more!
