I'd like to change the summoner name on one of my other accounts but the name is unavailable. Looking up the name that individual is only level 5, has 2 wins, and hasn't played in a year. Any way I can talk to someone about taking that summoner name?
The Summoner Name Change cleanup and sale will be announced next week and will be live in mid December. We were hoping to get it done this week, but there are a lot of names, and some added complexity compared to last year.
All accounts which are level 5 or below and have not played a game in 2012 will lose their summoner name, and all Summoner Name Changes will be available for purchase in the store at 50% off. I'd like to do more of these cleanups in 2013 with different criteria, so if you have an opinion on why more (or fewer) accounts should lose their name next time, feel free to post it here.
The old accounts can be reactivated in the future, but they will have to pick a new name.
