League of Legends: How To Change Region

League of Legends has become a game played by millions of people all over the globe. As such, if you have made friends with people from different parts of the world or are planning a long trip or permanent move overseas, you may want to change your League of Legends region in order to maintain your current skins, emotes, and rune pages.

Changing your region in League of Legends is relatively simple, but there are certain checks you may want to ensure are complete before making the move. Additionally, there are also certain times of the year when region changing is temporarily suspended, so you may find yourself unable to swap during these times. 

If you plan on region-swapping your League of Legends client anytime soon, be sure to check out our guide below!
