Your Summoner Name is the heart and soul of any League of Legends player, whether you are supporting your favorite Esports team, to having a cringe nickname your partner gave you, your Summoner Name is a part of you. Although changing your name will not get you out of Bronze, it will definitely make you look the part of a challenger player.

Changing your League of Legends Summoner name is very simple, though it comes at a price each time you want to change it. Here is’s quick guide on how to change your Summoner Name.

1. The first step to changing your in-game name is to open up the League of Legends client. From there, you will need to access the LoL store, which is located in the top right of the navigation bar. To access the store click the coin icon.

2. Once you have accessed the League of Legends store, again located near the top right of the screen, there will be a small account icon. This is where you will be able to change your summoner name.

3. Once you have clicked on the account icon, you will be greeted with the option to change your Summoner Name. There are two ways you can change your Summoner name. Firstly, you can purchase it through 1300, which is $10. If you do not wish to make a purchase with real money, you can also use your Blue Essence to purchase a Summoner Name change which costs 13900.

Blue Essence is League of Legends’ in-game currency. You earn Blue Essence through playing matches but also completing challenges.

Over the years, Riot Games has drastically changed its systems, not only for League of Legends but across all of their titles. Each of its games can now be accessed under one hub called the ‘Riot Client‘.

In 2019, Riot changed the way accounts work with a new universal login system. This system would make players sign in with a username and password – this change would be introduced to counteract identical usernames existing in the database.

Players need to be aware that changing the username does not change your in-game name. Your username is what you will use to log into your account. The Summoner Name in League of Legends could be different to the username you use.
