Riot ID Restrictions

Riot Games has some restrictions on nickname changes in their games. So, your nickname can't:

  • Suggest hate speech, slurs, or profanity.
  • Refer to any historical, ethical or political contexts.
  • Contain insults, grotesque imagery, and strong vulgarity.
  • Mention any Riot Games employers.

That said, if your nickname involves any of these things, you'd better think twice before changing it, as you may be forced to change your nickname rapidly.
