GETTING STARTED: ENSURE YOUR ACCOUNT IS IN GOOD STANDING

The crucial first step in preparing for a League of Legends account transfer is to confirm that your account is in optimal condition. This involves checking for any outstanding bans or suspensions and verifying that all your personal information is up to date.
Before initiating the transfer, make certain that you have actively used your account for at least a month. Additionally, ensure there is a valid and verified email address associated with your account. Riot Games will use this email to communicate with you throughout the transfer process, so it's essential that you maintain exclusive access. If you find the account transfer process confusing, refer to our account guide for assistance. Once you've confirmed that everything is in order, you're ready to kick off the transfer process!

WHY ACCOUNT TRANSFERS ARE TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE

The primary reason for this inconvenience is often technical difficulties or routine maintenance on Riot's servers. Another possibility is that Riot has temporarily disabled transfers to maintain competitive integrity, preventing users from moving between smaller regions to manipulate their Matchmaking Rating (MMR). Whatever the cause, exercising patience is key. If you find yourself unable to transfer your account immediately, check back later.
(Note: When account transfers are unavailable, the option to purchase an account is also temporarily disabled.)
