Account Transfer FAQ

Did League of Legends launch in your country or region? Do you want to play with your friends on a region different from where you started? Or, maybe you have moved countries altogether?

Whatever the reason, make sure you bring your account with you! This FAQ should answer some basic questions about transfers and it should also help troubleshoot some common transfer issues. 

The Basics

How can I purchase a transfer?

You can purchase a transfer in the store, by clicking the account button (the icon has a little person with a gear behind it) next to "Purchase RP".

Where can I transfer to?

Here is a list of available transfer locations in each region:

How much does it cost?

2600 RP for a one way transfer.

How do transfer tokens work?

Whenever there is a transfer promotion in any given region, eligible accounts receive a transfer token that can be used to transfer your account to a server specified in the promotion for free. You will only be able to use the token while the transfer promotion is active. If you choose not to use it, the token will be removed once the promotion is over.

How long does it take?

The transfers should be near-instantaneous.

I accidentally transferred. Can you move me back?

We cannot reverse accidental transfers, so please be absolutely sure that you want to move between regions. We won't be able to refund it, either :(

But my friend pushed the transfer button when I wasn't looking!!

Sorry, but we are very strict about this stuff. Don't leave your computer unattended or unlocked when you are logged into your League of Legends account, especially in a public place! We have some tips on account security here.

But I am unable to purchase RP in the region I accidentally transferred to! What can I do?

Send us a support ticket and we will help you buy RP with other Payment Options.

My account was hijacked and transferred to another region. Do I have to pay to get back?

No. We will restore your account in the region where you were playing prior to the hijack. For more information about account recovery please see this article.

How will it affect my account?

Important info for Clash players

Clash Banners, trophies, Flag Frames and similar will not transfer with your account. This is because Clash is a team mode attached to the specific server you participated on.

 

What will Transfer in Teamfight Tactics?

Things That Will Transfer  Things That Won't Transfer 
Little Legends Mission Progress (including Orb of Enlightenment, the Beta Pass, etc.)
Arena Skins Event Pass Progress
Opened/Unopened Hextech Content

For Teamfight Tactics, if you transfer, make progress, and then transfer back, your progress will revert back to where you'd left off upon making the first initial transfer.

How will it affect my latency?

Please bear in mind the geographical distance between your location and any given region that you are transferring to. The regions in League of Legends are divided based on server and network infrastructure proximity and are not defined geopolitically.

How will it affect my Ranked Standing?

Is your transfer only temporary? Starting in patch 12.13, if you transfer your account out of a region and transfer back to that region within two weeks from the last game you played in your original region, your account's ranked state upon returning to your original region will be restored to what it was when you left. This means you won't have to redo your ranked climb if you take your League of Legends account with you on a quick vacation. To get that max two weeks in your temporary region, just remember to (1) queue up for a full game before you purchase your transfer, and (2) request a transfer back to your original region when you return, within two weeks of your last game in your original region.

If your transfer is permanent, you'll need to play all-new placement games on your new server. The seeding will be based on your current MMR relative to the MMR of everyone on that server, so you could end up in a different Tier or Division compared to the League you were in on your original server.

If you ever decide to transfer back to a previous region beyond the two week preservation period, you'll be unranked again. You'll need to replay all placement matches as though you were transferring to a new server.

Common Issues

Will I get to keep my Riot ID when I transfer?

Yep! One of the major benefits of transitioning from Summoner Names to Riot IDs is making everybody’s in-game name globally unique. That means that nobody else in the whole world has the same Riot ID as you, so there will never be a need to change when transferring—unless you want to change your Riot ID, of course.

I want to transfer on a patch day.

When there is a new patch, transfers will be unavailable until the destination server has finished patching. Please wait until the server you want to transfer to finishes the patching process.

I have an old NA account before EU existed and want to transfer to one of the EU regions.

As of April 18, 2016, we're no longer offering NA-EU account merges. If you'd like to play on one of the EU regions, you'll have to transfer your current account or create a new one.

My transfer failed for some reason not listed above. What do I do?

Please send us a ticket with the following information:

  • Username:
  • Riot ID:
  • Email:
  • Current server (NA/EUW/EUNE/etc):
  • Server you want to transfer to:
  • A screenshot of your error:
