Got an Email saying that Riot Servers were hacked and I need to reset my PW. Email came from Riotgames@email.leagueoflegends.com which is a legit riot email address but It wants me to go to the EU site to change my email when I only play on NA.

Its good to be skeptical of strange sounding e-mails.

However, our records show you have at one point signed up for an EU account using the same e-mail address. Perhaps you have forgotten about it or this account does not belong to you. If this is the case feel free to disregard the e-mail.

Incedently I received the same mail.It doesn't actually ask you to change your pw through a link provided by them. In fact, Mad respect for who wrote that email. It's actually really well thought out. Informative, while still allerting readers to the fact that similar emails might be bogus.

And like Brent said. You prolly just made a EU account one day and forgot about it.
