NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Dec 11th?! I can't wait that long for the new items..... /cry

Is there a way to check if the name you want is available before you spend the rp on the change?

Thanks Hippalus

edit: Can we get a finalized notice of when the patch comes a few days before?
Unfortunately with a live game like LoL, patch timing is not entirely predictable. Patch 1.73 is targeted for early morning on December 11th but it could come any day after that.

Will you be able to check if your desired new summoner name is available -before- dropping RP on it? I don't wanna buy the namechange and not be able to get the name I want...have to settle for another misspelling....

It's not for the new items, the next patch is 1.72.

He's talking about 1.73.

You can refund the champs, can you refund the summoner name?

I already changed my name recently because someone finally relinquished this name, I had it on other games so I was glad he changed :P

I appreciate the sale, but I didn't want to risk waiting weeks for 5$ off a name I'm used to on the internet

Yes, there is a Check Name button in the Summoner Name Change section of the Store (in the Other tab). You can also check before the patch to see if the name fits the purge criteria (Level 5 or lower and no games played in 2012).
