This is due to a bug in our logic that we used to select and enforce the criteria, while protecting legit summoners from having their names taken away.

We are working on fixing our procedure right now, but due to the way this is executed we will most likely need to postpone this until another maintenance window. Right now are are still discussing when this might take place and will inform you about exact dates and times as soon as we are solid.

We recognize that this is a disappointment to those planning to get a name on sale or people trying to get newly cleansed names, so we'll be leaving Name Changes at 50% off through the 3.7 patch and into the middle of 3.8.

are you 100% certain the name you are looking at qualifies to get wiped?

The name I'm looking at was made in 2010, is level 1, and has never had a game.

Yeah, level 5, hasn't been played on after Jan 2013, plus I've checked some other names that are level 1 with no match history.

The only reason that would happen is if it is an account being held by riot in which case it will never get wiped, otherwise that would have already been wiped the last time they cleared names

I don't see why the name of a Touhou Character would be held by Riot.

My only guess is that it's going alphabetically and it will eventually get to mine.
