How about a level 8 summoner who hasn't played a game for 19 months? = )

Hippalus, just wondering.
I know if you have the name you want as an account you can submit a ticket to get the names swaped if you have the rp on your account.
Would the sale be applied to that? I really want to change my name :P

EDIT:
Also, my one account isn't level 8, but it has games played in the last 2 months.
Will it get cleaned?

You must choose your new name before you can purchase a Summoner Name Change (in the Other tab of the Store), and it happens immediately.

You can easily check it at that time by just clicking on the Summoner Name Change icon in the store... it has an entry field there that will check if your desired name is currently available. It doesn't allow you to purchase it without a few more "are you sure.." clicks, so no worries. Use it at the time of the sale, and voila!

To see if the name you want will be available, you would need to go to lolking.net here

to check the history of any name (they would have to be below lvl 6 and no games played in 2012).

That's depressing. I got my summoner name change about two months too early.

So for clarification, all the names will be freed upon patch completion? Or will it be like last time where it was an ongoing process and we have to sit for hours and spam "Check for availability"?

These changes are in "prep" for season 3??
So does that mean we wont see season 3 till the 26th then?

Oh ok, thanks for clearing that up for me.

Also, major props to you and everyone else involved with this. Much obliged, my friend.
