I too would offer much more money than the actual rename price to get the summoner name I'm well known under and have been using for years.
The point of the wipe is to free up names from players who no longer play the game. Smurfs that hold names just to troll is another issue entirely. I'm not sure how big of an issue it is, but if it is significant, we will solve it eventually.

We'll make up for it by planning a big sale event in January. Post here what you would want to see on sale in that event, and we'll pick from the ideas that get the most upvotes.

EDIT - I'll make a new thread for this later today. Let's keep this thread about Summoner Name Changes
Officially a Chinese company! Grats. Move your office out of America now please.

I believe the last wipe had the same criteria, inactive accounts level 5 or below would be wiped. The upcoming wipe would not touch these accounts at all since they are at least level 6 from the previous wipe if they wanted to camp that name.

The reason for the level limit is to avoid punishing people who put a lot of time into their account but stopped playing for some reason that is temporary. If they truly abandon the account, we will get to them eventually.

Wow this is really upsetting to hear that there will be no Black Friday sale this year. Was intending to buy $40 of RP. Why are so many things being overlooked this year that was available last year. ex. No Halloween Summoners Rift map and now Black Friday deals. Yes granted you say there will be a big sale in January but what in the world would posses it be on a random month instead of a day that is intended to have sales?

I have a question:

Why are all champion names level 6?

Why doesn't Riot want us to have names like Ahri, Akali etc?

All accounts which are level 5 or below and have not played a game in 2012 will lose their summoner name....
Aww the account name I'm interested in is a level 6 that hasn't played any games.

Near the truth here. Asian countries get far more benefits than we do in the U.S.

Edit: And it's not like it's hard to make a sale of skins/champs that have not been in their cycle for a long time.

"If they are popular skins, they will sale a lot just due to the popularity of sales. Also, they are digital goods so there is 0 cost involved in lowering their price (i.e. no manufacturing or distribution costs; 100% of the price is in their creation)" (Reddit user).

It would be nice of these following skins went on sale:
Jurassic Kog'Maw
Dragonslayer Vayne
Iron Solari Leona
Dragon Trainer Lulu

It's not likely that a newly released Legendary skin would go on sale, but it's for hoping. Either way, looking forward to the sale! ^^
