League of Legends is a hugely popular online game. If you're looking to buy an account, it's important to do your research first. Counterfeit accounts are becoming more and more popular on eBay, and for good reason. They're a cheap alternative to spending time creating an account directly via Riot Games and leveling it to 30, but there are risks involved. In this blog post, we'll give you tips on how to find a reputable seller and what to look for when buying an account. We'll also discuss the benefits of buying an account and how to ensure that you're getting what you expect. So, whether you're a new player or just looking to save some time and money, read on for the best advice on buying a League of Legends account!

What to look for when buying a lol account on eBay:

It is essential to find a seller who is highly rated with good feedback. This is an excellent indication that they are reliable. Additionally, you should check how long the seller has been selling LoL accounts – if they have been doing so for a while, this is another great sign. Once you have found a reputable seller, make sure to choose the right account type from their range of options. We'll go over the various account types in a moment.

A critical thing to know before you buy an account from eBay:

There are two types of accounts: hand-leveled and botted:

Hand-leveled Accounts

A hand-leveled account is manually leveled up by a person without bot software. The likelihood of getting banned for one of these accounts is very low. This investment is worth it if you want an account that will last forever. Finding a legitimate hand-leveled account on eBay is a struggle in & of itself. eBay is riddled with scams so buying a hand-leveled account through their marketplace is a gamble I wouldn’t recommend.

Botted Accounts

A botted account is one that was leveled with third-party software. Most accounts you find on eBay will be of this type because the sellers can pump them out in the masses using the software. They won’t even tell you the account is a botted account because they know it would hurt their bottom line. These accounts aren't made one at a time, and they can be leveled 30 at once on one PC with the appropriate program. RIOT finds these accounts fast, and they are banned in batches several weeks after you buy them. The small sum of money you save by purchasing a botted account isn't worth it because there's a fairly big chance that the account will get banned, so you might be wasting your money.

How do you recognize a botted account?

Although it's not foolproof, one tell-tale sign that an eBay account may be botted is if you message the seller and they seem evasive in their responses. They may even outright lie to you about whether or not the account is botted, so that you'll make a purchase. Take everything they say with a grain of salt.

After you have the account bought you can go on a third-party site likeop.gg and look up the account name after purchase. You will see a spammed amount of games all using the same wonky summoner spells and items purchased. By then it's too late and you've been given a botted account and the seller will probably not accept a return.

These accounts will have very poor MMR because of the number of losses and will result in you starting your ranked climb at a poor MMR. Because of the way the ranked system works. The account may even come with a leaver buster meaning that the account has applied penalties you were not aware of when purchasing.

Pros and Cons of Buying LoL Account on eBay:

There are some good and bad reasons to buy a LoL account on eBay. Let's talk about them below:

Pros:

  • The pricing can be very low on eBay
  • You can use your existing eBay account

Cons:

  • Customer support will either be non-existent or very slow
  • You don't get to see the accounts in detail
  • Delivery might not be instant if they don't have it setup
  • You won’t get a return if needed since customer support is lacking
  • You risk buying a botted

Are There Good Quality Accounts on eBay?

No, the community has concluded that purchasing the majority of accounts on eBay usually results in getting a Botted account. As said above, Botted accounts aren't good because you probably won't receive login details to make the account yours permanently. It's too risky of an investment for the potential return because buyers are constantly running into these types of problems. Even if you find a good account at a good price, the odds of it getting banned are high and don't expect to get reimbursed.

Things to be Aware of When Buying a League Account

Be wary of individuals who only provide you with the account's level. This is usually a bad indication since you may receive an account that has no Blue essence and will not be able to afford the champion you one-trick. Make sure you have access to the original email and password used to create the account since they can be changed to yours. Examine if it's hand-leveled or botted, and keep in mind that hand-leveling is always superior.

How to Buy League Account From eBay Safely: (How to Buy Without Any Risk)

There are a few things you should be on the lookout for to guarantee that your money is not lost. Let's look at some of those concerns now.

When looking to buy a League of Legends account from eBay, it is important to do so safely. One way to ensure you're safe when buying an account is to check the seller's feedback. If the seller has a lot of negative feedback it means they've scammed other buyers in the past, it may be best to avoid them.

Finally, ensure that the account you purchase come with recovery details. Oftentimes, sellers leave this out and recover the account after selling it to you. Not only would you lose your new account, but also the money spent on purchasing it.

Importance of buying from reputable companies instead of marketplaces
