League of Legends players in Southeast Asia region have been suffering for a long time but it looks like the end to their misery is at hand.

League of Legends ' monetisation has generally been less aggressive than what standard was at any given time in the past decade but the players in Southeast Asia had it worst than the rest of the world, which eventually led them to beg Riot Games to take the publishing over.

Ever since the game arrived in the region, the publishing was handled by Garena, a large but unscrupulous platform that made what Blizzard did in Overwatch 2 look good.

Anyway, the transition will not be instant as Riot's contract with Garena ends in January 2023.

By that point in time, all Garena users will have to transfer their accounts to the Riot Games client which governs all of the company's titles in one place, including Valorant and Legends of Runeterra.

Account migration process itself will open in just over a week from publishing the article, on November 18, 2022, and all the necessary information can be found on the account migration site .

Cosmetics and loot currently on Garena accounts will be transferred to the Riot accounts so there is no need to worry about losing value.
