A lot of players are reporting that they are encountering nameless accounts or players with no summoner name in League of Legends games.
In League of Legends, Summoner Name represents a player in-game. Summoner names are unique server wise but it can be changed with a certain amount of RP or Blue Essence. Even though the nicknames show how creative players are, they can’t be left empty and have some kind of restrictions.
However, recently on Reddit, a lot of players are reporting that they are playing against nameless accounts or players with no summoner name in League of Legends.
“A player played with a friend of mine without a name, turns out they used an external tool (allowed by ToS) to skip the summoner name selection screen,” u/HawkOTD said.
On that Reddit thread, a lot of other players have also confirmed that they are also encountering nameless accounts as if it is a new kind of trend for new accounts. And it is becoming a lot common in bot games.
However, those accounts are apparently using a third-party tool named Mimic, which allows players to play the game without selecting the summoner name. Moreover, according to some players, illegal account “buy and sell” groups are using this Mimic tool and Bots to level up the accounts on daily basis.
And if you are also looking for “how to play League of Legends without a summoner name” you can also use Mimic to queue up without any kind of name. But it is still uncertain whether it can lead to a ban or not.
