When Patch 1.73 arrives in mid-December (the 11th at the earliest), we’ll be rounding up inactive accounts to make those summoner names available to players. An inactive account is any account under level 6 that hasn’t played a game since January 1, 2012. To keep those accounts’ names, you’ll have to log on and play at least one game between now and Sunday, December 9, at 11:59 PM PST.

People please read the full post! The sale STARTS when they release the patch, which is the 11th at the *earliest* (meaning FULL PRICE at the moment). Also, your desired name or whatever... won't be available until they release this patch.

Hoping the 2013 sweep included level 10s that haven't played in 2 years.

The blog post says the names will be deleted December 9, at 11:59 PM PST. Around the same time as the 1.37 patch. So yea, not today or tomorrow, but soon.

If the name that you want is deleted on the 9th, then the 9th is when you can get it. Also check the price of the Summoner Name Change. When its half off then you will know.

So the patch releases earliest on December 11th, but they are deleting names come December 9? How is that working out exactly? Are we able to go for the names as soon as they delete them or do we have to wait for the patch to be installed first?

I hope if it's the latter, the patch day won't be an issue for logging in and performing transactions.

Any idea when this will happen?
