Does Wild Rift Change Name Cost Money?

As mentioned earlier, the Wild Rift change name is free and will only cost players time. It means that players can change their IGN every 30 days for now. However, we did say “for now” because Riot Games is changing its rules regarding summoner names. To give context, Riot Games is transitioning Summoner Names to Riot IDs, originally costing players either an in-game currency or RP (real money). This change is further explained on their website. Additionally, this change will take effect starting November 20, 2023, so change your IGN ASAP if you plan to change it.

That’s the end of our Wild Rift change name tutorial. Head to Summoner’s Rift and show off your new IGN with friends and opponents.
