If League of Legends really returns to VNG, converting LoL Garena account to Riot Games is definitely a matter of top priority for gamers.
It can be said that information about whether League of Legends will continue to be operated by Garena or will return to VNG has always been a hot topic for the community of this game in Vietnam. Some people want Garena to continue managing the ‘brand’ game, others want to transfer it to another publisher to innovate in management and operation.
And no matter how people argue about the fate of League of Legends in the future, the question that people are most concerned about at the moment, is how is their LoL Garena account? Will these accounts keep their skins and ranks or have to start from scratch? Today, let’s predict 3 cases of the fate of the old account with Tin Game Channel if League of Legends really returns to VNG’s hands!
Reset everything, start from zero
This is probably the case no one wants to happen the most. League of Legends has been developed for 10 years on the Vietnamese server, is the leading Esports game in the S-shaped country. The effort and money that gamers have put into this is definitely a huge number, and If you have to start over from zero, invisible, this transfer can kill the game itself when the number of people quitting the game is very large.
If VNG takes back a game without old data, community development at the moment is almost impossible. Not to mention the old community will not be interested in ‘plowing again’ new accounts. Making it difficult for VNG to develop this game in Vietnam. In addition, this is also highly likely to cause LoL to disappear from the Esports map due to the lack of players and community, which is one of the strongest points of LoL compared to other Esports disciplines in Vietnam.
VNG supports item compensation
If they do not want to lose a large number of old LoL players, VNG will likely choose to compensate through valuation as well as determining the value of the account. From there, make compensation such as giving skins, the account still keeps lv30, rank, … so that gamers can lighten the feeling of disappointment when League of Legends returns to VNG. Giving skins can be done in many ways, but one of the fastest ways is to donate…. Hextech chest. If the ‘dignity’ is high, the player can completely unlock rare skins that he has never had the opportunity to own before.
In the case of choosing this option to switch League of Legends accounts, I think VNG can account for each different milestone (maybe skin milestones, ranking milestones, recharged milestones, …) thereby supporting ‘compensate’ a part for gamers when ‘moving house’ to a new account. And certainly, no one wants this to happen when, as said, League of Legends is a game that contains the element of ‘dignity’, VNG’s support to compensate for another equivalent account will certainly not bring a great experience. Experience like when gamers can hold their own original LoL account. Not to mention that there are ‘memorial costumes’ that gamers want to keep and are hard to get back. So this is still a case that is not very popular with many gamers.
Garena supports transferring LoL account information to VNG
This is the most beautiful case that any League of Legends player wants to happen. However, in this case, there will probably be a bit of trouble about transferring LoL account information between the two parties. Accordingly, Garena needs to transfer a huge database of gamers from 2012 to the present, including costumes, champions, ratings, TFT items, … resulting in the connection of old and new accounts. bit time consuming.
According to Moi Tui’s prediction, the process of transferring League of Legends account information will be as follows:
First, users will still have to log in to their account on Garena (including username and password). Then gamers perform a few other operations proposed by VNG to connect the 2 accounts together. Unless gamers forget their login information, then they will need to ask Customer Service for support to connect (or synchronize) 2 accounts of League of Legends Garena and Riot Games together. Next, personal information including email, ID card/CCCD, phone number, etc. will be added in the following Riot Games account, to complete the final authentication step.
It can be said that this is the most beautiful plan that League of Legends gamers in Vietnam are interested in. If they still retain information from the old account such as levels, skins, ratings, DTCL rewards, etc., they certainly still want to come back and experience League of Legends as usual. At the same time, VNG will not be “too much of a loss” when it has to rebuild a new community by itself.
Currently, all of the above cases are only hypothesized. First, we need to wait for the announcement of the transfer of League of Legends from Garena to VNG. After that, information about converting LoL Garena account to Riot Games will be announced to answer gamers’ questions.
