The Riot Games has demanded that his players of LoL (League of Legends) do an update login to an “Account Riot” as a way to unify the global access business. Beginning January 22, 2020, anyone with the old username will not be able to play League of Legends or any other game unless they make this adjustment. See how to upgrade LoL account to Riot Account.
Why a Riot Account?
In October 2019, Riot Games celebrated League of Legends’ 10th anniversary by announcing a mobile version of the game, Wild Rift, as well as other titles such as Legends of Runeterra and Projects A, F and L – a style shooter. Counter-Strike (A), one like Diablo (F) and the last of Injustice (L).
Wild Rift and Legends of Runeterra are expected to arrive by 2020, and for that Riot saw the need to unify accounts, requiring only one way to access all of the company’s new games.
For example, this is what happens with Google services: with a single account you can have Gmail, YouTube, Maps, Google Chrome without having to create a password for each platform.
How will this Riot Account work?
Currently, the LoL account is separated by regions, meaning there may be multiple players with the same username in different regions. With this update to the global Riot Account, the username must be unique.
This will also allow a player from India to log in to their account in another country and still play with friends.
Those with a username conflicting with another player must have already received an email from Riot to make the change. The deadline for this adjustment is January 22, 2020, otherwise it will not be possible to play League of Legends or another game until regularization.
However, for those who already have a single login, you will not need to do anything.
