What is a Riot ID?

Riot ID is your universal identifier used across all Riot games, unifying your presence across the publisher's games ecosystem. Each Riot ID is tied to a single email address. By changing this ID, you adjust your appearance in each associated game. If you have multiple accounts and want to change your Riot ID, make sure you are on the correct account before proceeding.

There are specific rules governing the composition of your Riot ID, which is divided into two parts: the nickname and the callsign.

Pseudonyms must be between 3 and 16 alphanumeric characters and cannot be offensive or inappropriate. They don't need to be unique, as long as the entire Riot ID isn't already taken.

The codes, for their part, must contain between 3 and 5 alphanumeric characters. Although they start with a default region code, once changed you cannot reuse a region code. Some region codes will no longer be available when changing your Riot ID. Choosing callsigns that are neither insulting nor inappropriate is crucial to maintaining a healthy gaming environment.

In summary, the ability to change your Riot ID for free is now available to all players, with a 90-day waiting period between each free change.
