How To Change Regions In League of Legends

Are you wondering how to change regions in League of Legends? Don't worry, you've come to the right place.


You would want to change regions in League of Legends for several reasons. You may have moved to a new country and would no longer be able to play on your current server without facing severe ping issues. You also may want a change of pace, and playing on a new server could give you that breath of a fresh start. The question is, how do you change your region in League of Legends? Stay tuned to this article to find out.

Use Riot Points To Change Region

The easiest way to change servers in League of Legends is to purchase a server change through the LoL store. However, this won't be cheap, as the price for changing servers in League of Legends is 2600 Riot Points, which equates to over $27.

It is important to note that you can only purchase a region change once, so think carefully before switching. It is also important to note that if you are ranked in Europe West, for example, and transfer over to North America, you will lose your rank and have to start over. Here is how to purchase a server change in League of Legends:

  1. Open up your League of Legends client.
  2. Click on the store – the icon will have three stacks of coins.
  3. In the top right, click on the account icon.
  4. Select the region you wish to transfer to.
  5. Click purchase.

Play LoL On a Different Server Using a VPN

The second method for changing your region in League of Legends is to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network). However, this means you will have to create a new account to play, as Riot Games locks your account to the region you created it in. So, to play in a different region, you have to connect to the country you want to play in, then create your League of Legends account and log into the game.

It is important to note that certain regions, such as South Korea and China, require personal identification to register for League of Legends. This means unless you have a real-life ID from one of those regions, you cannot play in that country, even on a VPN.
