Starting today, players will be able to skip over the Atlantic and transfer between the North America and EUW or EUNE servers. This upgrade has been a long time coming and we’re stoked that players now have more flexibility to choose where they play!

To purchase a transfer, head to the in-game store and click on the Other tab. Intercontinental transfers are one-way and run 2600RP, so always double check you’re heading to the right server. Additionally, European players who joined the North American server prior to June 1st 2010 and weren’t able to move to the European platform when it opened will receive a free one time transfer token.

For the full scoop on eligibility, transfer options and more, check out this page on our Knowledge Base.

tl;dr If you do not meet the criteria below we will be unable to merge your account.

A small number of you have asked if you can merge your NA account with your EU account. Unfortunately, that’s a very time-consuming process that we really can’t offer on a broad scale. Some veteran EU players, however, have accounts that pre-date the launch of the European service. Since these players didn’t have the option to create their first (primary) account on home soil, we’re offering them a very special, one-time opportunity to merge their two accounts into one account on the EU server.

Merging’s very labor-intensive and requires special attention from the Player Support team. For that reason, we can only offer mergers under special circumstances.

Here’s how to qualify for a merger:

  • You need to have created your account before June 1, 2010
  • Most of your games need to be from a European IP
  • You need to verify ownership over the two accounts you’re merging

Unfortunately, because this process is so laborious, we’re going to be buzz-kill sticklers about the rules. No exceptions! Also, this is an extremely slow process, so – while we will answer all eligible requests – it might take several weeks to complete your merger.

We can only transfer certain data to your EU account, so please read carefully before you apply. Here’s what we can merge:
  • Your summoner level
  • Your purchased content
    • You’ll be compensated for content you unlocked on both accounts
  • Your IP and RP totals
  • Your competitive season rewards

The following aspects of your NA account will be lost during the merger process:
  • Your stats
  • Your MMR
  • Your rune and mastery presets
  • Your honor score
  • Previous and unused referrals
  • Your justice review rating
  • Your friends list

Once the process is complete you can’t use refund tokens on content you merged from another account, and your NA account can’t be recovered. So make sure you’ve bid fond farewell to your summoner on this side of the pond prior to requesting the merge!

If you’re interested in merging your NA and EU accounts, meet the criteria and have read through the process, please a send us a ticket with the subject “Account Merge Request”. Also, if you meet the requirements and you’d rather just move your NA account to EU without merging, you can use your free transfer token in the store right now.

We want to thank all the seasoned vets who waited so long for this option, and we hope we can make your merger as painless as possible. If you have any more questions, ask them in this thread!

2600 RP seems a little expensive, but considering I have no need to buy one, I can't complain!
