Summoner Name Cleanup and 50% Off Name Change Sale
With the upcoming patch arriving in mid-December, Riot will be cleaning up more inactive accounts to make those summoner names available to active players. An inactive account is any account under level 6 that hasn't played a game since January 1, 2012. In order to keep your account name, you'll have to log on and play at least one game between now and Sunday, December 9th. If you miss the deadline, your account will still be active, but you'll have to choose a new summoner name when you log in next time.
From the release of the patch through December 26th, summoners can pick up a name change for only 650 RP, down from their normal 1300 RP price.

Pro Player Pick
Riot has released a new video of Pro Player Pick. This time it features Alexy 'Alex Ich' Ichetovkin of Moscow Five whose favorite pick is Ryze. 'Alex Ich' sees Ryze as one of the hardest champion but the easiest champion at the same time. He has no skillshots which gives him an huge advantage. But every champion has it's disadvantages aswell, according to 'Alex Ich' it's Ryze's laning phase. He has no skills other than his ultimate to clear waves, which make it easy for the enemy to get outpushed. Check out the video.
