Riot Games is a company built on the success of League of Legends. In 2020, they shifted their focus from just one game to “a bunch” – introducing VALORANT and other titles such as Teamfight Tactics which became wildly popular in a short time period.

This led to the developer rethinking its username and account system and implementing some major changes. This change led them to create “Riot account” and this global account in which you can sign into any of Riot’s titles, including Valorant!

Changing your name in Valorant is different from other games. You don’t have to spend any game currency for it and the process of changing names comes with absolutely no cost at all.
