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 troubleshooting some common transfer issues.
Where can I transfer to?
Here is a list of available transfer locations in each region:
What can you tell me about the European server split?
We have a huge number of players logging in from Europe every day. Because it wasn't possible to host everybody on the same server, we ended up splitting the European server into EU West and EU Nordic and East shards on July 19, 2011. Anyone is welcome to play on whatever server they choose, however, for your consideration we made a list of countries that consider one of the above shards to be their "home server".
EU Nordic and East
Central African Republic
Republic of the Congo
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Moldova, Republic of
United Arab Emirates
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 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.

If you transferred to a new server, purchased a name change, and transferred back to your original server, your name change will NOT transfer with your account. Instead, your account will be tied to the Summoner name you had before transferring from the original server. If you wish to keep the name you purchased, send us a ticket and we will do our best to help you.
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?
You will be seeded into a Ranked League after you play 1 Ranked game on your new server. The seeding will be based on your current MMR in relation 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, please keep in mind that you will return to the rank you were at when you left the server, minus any LP decay that would have taken place if a significant amount of time has passed. Your standing is tracked independently on each server, so LP decay will only affect the Ranked standing of the account on the server you have NOT been playing on.
For more information on MMR decay, check out our Ranked Play FAQ.
How will this affect my Team Rewards points?
If you transfer your account to another server, you will NOT keep the points you have earned. Your wins with your ranked team(s) won't transfer over, which means your points will reset.
Your points are locked by server -- for example, if you transfer from EUW to EUNE, you will lose the points you earned on EUW and start over on EUNE. If you later transfer back to EUW, you will no longer have the points you earned on EUNE, but you will get back the points you previously earned on EUW.
My summoner name or user name is taken on the server that I want to transfer to.
You will be prompted to change your username and Summoner name during the transfer process. Please make sure to remember what your new username is, as you will need it to login to your new server!
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.
I am getting an Inactive Summoner name collision.
Inactive names cannot be claimed automatically through transfers, but you can complete the transfer by sending us a ticket. Please include the information listed below.
