So I recently checked a summoner name I've been really wanting (I'm a huge anime nerd) and I found the owner has been inactive for 6 months. Checking the guidelines Riot has set, I will have to wait roughly two MORE years for the name to be open. Even though this guy is level 30, I find this to be a bit much. Even level 1 accounts have a wait time of SIX months, which feels a little bit long. I was thinking something like 1 year max for level 30 accounts.
TL;DR Summoner Names should have a shorter inactivity
