Name Reservations?
So I just recently had my name forcefully changed by riot. And in the process of coming up with a new name, I've noticed that almost 90% of all names are taken by level 1 accounts with ZERO activity. Do these inactive accounts get to keep their names forever, or are they eventually reset?

They are eventually stripped of their names.

i have never seen any been stripped of a name due to inactivity. a friend of mine played early season 1, stopped a month in and just picked up the game again 1 month ago and his account was still active.

How long does it take to strip them?

Riot responded to this a bit back saying that they would be doing another account sweep pretty soon. I suspect it will be post season 2 and pre season 3.

Unfortunately names can't be reserved, first come first serve.

indeed there probably will be another sweep pre-pre-season

I hope they purge the occupied names at the end of the season.

I'll pay for the name change in the store to be able to get my name from the level 1 account with a total of 2 bot games played over a year ago that has it now.
