: Old Champion Name Availability
Thanks for the feedback everyone! I do agree that there could be some confusion toward newer players, but I feel as if it wouldn't make the most egregious difference. After all, you should know whether you're going into a "pvp/normals" queue or a "pve/player vs ai" queue. The funny part is that while someone on the enemy team may be named {{champion:32}} there'll probably be someone with a name like xXBurg3rManXx as well, showing it's actual people. {{sticker:leblanc-funny}}
: Riot intentionally has those names locked. The only reason they let people have the names of new champions is because those people have the name BEFORE the champ is announced. It would really suck to have your name taken away like that.

The only reason they let people have the names of new champions is because those people have the name BEFORE the champ is announced. It would really suck to have your name taken away like that. Let me clarify possibly. Newer champions are completely permitted as Riot has decided to do away with this rule according to the Rioter that I spoke to. The issue here is to **allow** older champion names to be available. I'm not asking _if_ they're locked, I'm asking to allow them to _be_ unlocked, as they've been more lenient about champion name-taking. {{item:3117}}
: Poppy is unavailable because someone already has that name, not because it's an old champion name. If the player is inactive for long enough, then it'll become available that way. https://support.riotgames.com/hc/en-us/articles/201751914-Summoner-Name-Clean-Up- edit: Hum, news to me that they arbitrarily locked up those names manually. Even if they made those accounts themselves early on, I feel like they ought to have allowed the name clean up thing still kick in. If it is one of those manually locked names, then I don't see why they should keep them that way.

If you look up every old champion, you'll see that they're set at Level 6 with no match history prior. Riot has intentionally done this in the past, and I have been playing since Season 2 to know this.

: Client keeps eating memory/cpu and slows everything down until it crashes
I think I just had the same problem, googled to see if anybody else was having the issue somewhere on reddit. My only solution was to switch back to the legacy client. It got so bad that my cpu was spiking like crazy and forced me to close the client by windows. Hope that this gets fixed soon. {{summoner:6}}
