Hey all.

I personally have came across this problem far too many times with League, and many other games for that matter.

I play a lot of competitive games and use a variety of names, including my YouTube and stream name (JackkDude) but sometimes I use my team names, such as QQPew, or TPV Chill.

Everytime I have tried to change my name in game, or even search to find a summoner with these names, it's been a low level (1-6) account that has only played bot games, some inactive for around 5 months, others for nearly a year. I still cannot change my name, yet these accounts will stay on the system for a while, which I find rather stupid.

What can us competitive players do?

TL;DR - Competitive players want their usernames.

Riot just recently cleaned out usernames who were inactive.

Right now there isn't a "TPV Chill" account.

Riot does periodically reclaim summoner names from accounts that have been inactive for a long time. No matter how aggressive they get with the wipes, I don't think you'll be able to claim a name if the person with that account plays occasionally (like a few times a year). Them's the breaks.
