After switching Garena and Riot Games accounts, can I continue to play League of Legends, as well as top up the game:
As mentioned above, all your actions on the Garena server League of Legends will be continuously updated until the end of 2022, even if you are already linked. For example, on 11/18/2022 you proceed to link your account, then continue to play that account on Garena server until the end of 2022, then all your activities (In-game items, battle history) …) will be fully stored on the Riot Games account. However it is only limited to 2022 keep that in mind.
When can start playing at Riot Games’ League of Legends server in 2023:
As expected, after January 4, 2023, League of Legends accounts from the Garena server that have been linked to the Riot Games account can start logging in to the Client to complete the transition, officially becoming player League of Legends server Riot Games.
When can ranked on Riot Games server in 2023:
In mid-January 2023 you can start ranking League of Legends and TFT on Riot Games servers with your linked account.
Is it possible to keep the League of Legends ingame name after switching:
Accounts that have played 1 match from January 1, 2021 to January 6, 2023 will retain the ingame name. However, if this name is already on Riot Games’ League of Legends server, it will have a few new characters added. Riot Games prioritizes protecting ingame names for players on its servers over Garena.
If there is a problem in the conversion process such as loss of items, will it be compensated:
Unfortunately, Riot Games only supports you to answer, but there will be no compensation for lost data (items…) from League of Legends Garena account to Riot Games server. However, Riot Games has given away some commemorative items to all players participating in the transition from the Garena server. For example: An account that does not have enough champions will be given all released champions.
What about friends list:
The friends list will be overwritten, meaning the friends list on your Garena and Riot Games League of Legends accounts will be merged (in case you already have a Riot Games League of Legends account). from before – In case of newly created Riot Games League of Legends account, only the list of friends from the Garena server will be displayed). Understandably, your friends list will certainly not be missing anyone (In the event that there is no problem).
If my account is permanently banned by Garena, will it be accepted on the new server:
Riot Games still allows you to link your account if Garena previously removed your ban, but this is not possible.
