Why Do People Buy League of Legends Accounts?

People buy League of Legends accounts for the same reason they slay the dragon: for power and glory.

What If You Could Buy Your Way to Level 30?

If you want to make it to the top in League of Legends, you can look forward to some hours of games vs. the computers and then many, many more hours leveling your account, gaining IP, buying new champs, and figuring out just what the heck Runes actually are.

But what if you didn’t have to do any of that? What if you could walk right past the staircase and step into an elevator that shoots you to level 30 with all its associated perks?

Sometimes Seasoned Players Want to Try a New Role

You might play top lane and have all the runes and champions for that but wanted to switch to mid lane.

Not every player who wants a new League account is a newbie. Sometimes, players who buy accounts are veterans of League who have sunk many hours into the game.

On that note, many have also sunk hard-earned IP and even RP, bought with their real-life money, into existing accounts—and they have tailored their accounts to a particular role. If a player spent all his or her various points on building their top game, then they probably have an array of champions and runes suited to top lane champions.

Buying an account—that often comes with unspent IP and RP—allows an experienced player to bypass the basic learning process and get equipped for a whole new role.

So You Want to Switch Regions

Let’s say you play on the North American servers, but you made a friend on another server and you want to switch to Europe.

Riot offers an in-game option for moving an account. Players can purchase an account switchover for $26 or 2600 Riot Points.

But what if you don’t want to pay the $26, or you want to switch multiple times on the servers and don’t want to pay the fee twice? Purchasing a second account eliminates that problem for some players.

What if you wanted to play on a different server without the work of setting up a new account?

There are many reasons players choose to purchase League of Legends accounts, and some savvy entrepreneurs have made good profit from addressing that need in the market.

If you choose to venture into the world of purchasing League of Legends accounts, you should know that Riot has explicitly stated that purchasing accounts is against their Terms of Service. Needless to say, that doesn’t stop everyone!
