Eager to start your own club in LoL? Learn about League club tag requirements and all you’ll need to know about in-game clubs here at FragMeta.
Whether you’re a solo player or a team player, you probably have that need to belong somewhere. This is where League of Legends clubs come into play!
These clubs are great for socializing with other players and communicating about the game. Much like Facebook or any other social media platform, there’s a friend’s list and the ability to search for profiles.
You know, just in case you wanted to find that player who saved your in-game life or you if need to have some unsavory words with last game’s enemy one trick jungler who camped your lane.
What Are Clubs In League Of Legends?
Before we talk about the League club tag requirements and answer other burning questions surrounding in-game communities, let’s talk about what clubs are in the first place.
To put it simply – they’re like an exclusive form of Facebook inside of the game’s client. You get a social menu where en-masse communication between a maximum of 50 players at a time is possible.
Rather than having 50 different players sliding into your direct messages at one time, the club chat is available to reach the group as a whole.
Another fun and flashy feature is that you get to show everybody in-game (via your profile) that you’re part of a club with a club tag and banner.
How Do You Join A League Club?
Don’t just waltz up and demand to be let into a League club, that’s for sure. Chances are, you’ll be rejected.
The best rule of thumb is to do what Thumper says: “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Since joining a club is by invitation only, your best bet is to ask a member to invite you politely and respectfully.
It would be easiest to join a club where you have friends if possible. Just keep in mind that you can only join up to 3 clubs at a time and, you can only be an owner of one.
How Do You Leave A Club In League?
Do you feel like you don’t want to communicate with anyone or feel like you don’t fit in with the club you’ve joined? No worries – you can just leave the club.
Before you do this, letting the club owner know as a courtesy might be a good idea. If you don’t, they just might think you rage-quit and end up having bad blood between you.
Thankfully, leaving a club is easy. There are 2 methods in 2 different clients to do this.
- Click on the Clubs tag in the social panel.
- Right-click on your club.
- Click on “Leave Club”.
- On the club homepage, click on the gear icon in the club options menu.
- Click on “Leave Club”.
Alternatively, you can also just click on yourself in the club lobby and choose “Leave Club”.
Your Guide To Creating & Managing A Club in League of Legends
A sense of community is a great thing. But what if the existing clubs don’t tickle your fancy or you just want a club for yourself and your teammates? In this section, we’ll discuss how you can still feel that warm hug of a community without having to join a pre-existing club. In short – here’s how you can make your own League of Legends club.
Where Do I Find Clubs in League of Legends?
There are 2 ways to find clubs:
- Right-click on the upper-right side of the “Social” menu in the League client. Click on View Clubs.
- Click on Club Menu in your profile. It will be beside the Ranked section.
What Are The Requirements To Create A Club In League Of Legends?
The good news is it’s free and you don’t need to be a certain level to create one. But unlike the clubs that are already available, you are only allowed to have 30 members.
It’s not necessarily a bad thing though. 50 unruly players testing the might of the almighty owner might just prove to be too many.
Again, let’s keep in mind the rule of thumb we touched on earlier – in League of Legends, you can join up to 3 clubs, but you are only allowed to own one.
How To Create A Club In League Of Legends
There are 2 methods to create a club:
- Click on “Create a Club” on the upper-right of your screen.
- In your Summoner profile, go to the Clubs heading and click on “Start a Club”.
What Roles Does A League Of Legends Club Have?
The last thing you need in your new club is anarchy. There are 3 roles in a League of Legends club that take care of that problem.
We will explain them in the section below!
This is usually the player who has created the club. It could also be a member who was given ownership. There are certain perks when it comes to being a club owner. These include promoting or demoting members, and adding and removing members. Want to kick that club morale up a notch? Go full Braveheart or football coach and post a daily message.
This role is like being the teacher’s helper. It’s quite limited. You can’t admit or kick anybody out. The most the club officer can do is play messenger. Daily reminders to members and an inspirational message here and there are some things the club officer can do.
While this may seem like the bottom of the barrel when it comes to roles in a club, it’s not. Where would a club be without members? Probably a barren wasteland of a message board. Members could almost be as important as the club owner. Blasphemy! Hardly. Members can invite other members who help your club grow. It doesn’t mean they will get accepted automatically though. Club members don’t have that power. Only the owner has that capability.
How To Manage Your Club
If you’ve ever managed a forum or a chatroom before, you’d know it’s not all easy-peasy lemon squeezy.
There are always the ones who follow the rules and then the ones who like to make the owner regret taking on such a high role. No doubt, managing a club is the most difficult part of owning one.
Despite the hardships, here’s a simple guide as to how to manage your club.
Maybe you don’t want to take on the full responsibility anymore. Or maybe you just need a break from it. As the club owner, you can turn into Cinderella after midnight (a regular member) by transferring ownership to another member. Simply click on the ellipsis (…) next to the member you want to be promoted and select “Transfer Ownership”. Unfortunately, you can’t go back to being an owner with a click of a button after this. You’d have to wait until the new club owner transfers ownership back to you. This is one of those important decisions when it comes to choosing who you want to take over.
Promotion & Demotion
Did you ever get those gold stars for doing things well in primary school? Or were you a student who got detention? As an owner, you’re able to do the same thing, but you’re also able to punish them for the opposite behavior. The method is similar to transferring ownership. Click on the ellipsis next to the member and either promote or demote them.
Had enough of someone always breaking the rules or just being plain rude to you and other members? Sounds like it’s time for the boot! Again, just click on the ellipsis next to the member’s name and select “Remove Member”. If you’re worried about the backlash, don’t be. They will no longer be able to reach the message box nor the club page.
League Of Legends Club Tags – How Do You Get One? League Club Tag Requirements & More
Generally, the club tag is simply a short version of your club name. However, you can label it with any club tag you want as long as it’s not already taken. Just bear in mind that there is a character limit for your club tag.
So you can’t choose a super long city name like “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”. You would probably also look like you’re either trolling or suspected of being a bot. Although, “Llanfair” could probably pass. Thankfully, that’s the most difficult part of League club tag requirements – you’ve only got one step to go once you’ve picked out a tag.
How To Get A Club Tag In LoL
So how do you get a club tag of your own in League of Legends? A blood oath!
Just kidding – that’d be too difficult to prove. Not to mention unsanitary.
Curious about League club tag requirements? Thankfully, they’re quite straightforward – you just need 5 members to join your club. That’s all!
After getting the necessary headcount in your club, you can follow these steps to get a club tag:
- Click on the cog symbol on the upper-right screen.
- Click on the symbol under your club’s name.
- Create your tag (only one unseparated name)
If you are part of multiple clubs, you’re able to switch tags. Since this option is unlimited, you can switch between your tags all day. To do so, follow these steps:
- Click on the cog symbol beside the social bar.
- Click on the option to switch your tag.
Can You Change Your Club Tag?
Once you’ve created your club tag (and name), it’s set in stone. Just like that pesky cat’s paw print left in the concrete you just poured.
Unfortunately, if you want to change it, you will have to kick all your members out and delete the club.
No one likes being kicked out of anything for no apparent reason, so you might want to give them all a fair warning before you look like a tyrant king or queen.
Is League Getting Rid Of Clubs?
The short answer from Riot Games is “Yes”. And the crowd wails in dismay! To answer the big “WHY?!”, we will outline the several reasons for the impending closure of LoL clubs below.
The tools for communication between members are always evolving. Simple voice/text chats have grown into massive platforms like Discord – allowing players to not only communicate with each other but to share gameplay live streams, build immense and complex communities, and customize their communication channels to their liking with near-granular controls.
The tools available in League of Legends today rely on certain technology that was developed by a third-party developer. Like all technology, it degrades if certain parts are no longer supported. So if you don’t update it, you can’t do much more with it.
Instead of focusing on old technology, Riot is choosing to focus more on improving other parts that can be more useful to players. These things include making improvements to the client and revamping the item system.
However, not to worry. No one leaves communication in the corner – a more streamlined transition to Discord is already in the works!
Discord has more features than the original club system in League. It allows for the streaming of games to each other, as well as that lovely noise-suppression in voice chats. Because let’s be real, not everyone is a fan of that Iron Maiden song blasting in the background of your voice chat because a member doesn’t know how to noise-gate their microphone.
LoL developers will be working with Discord to make the transition from clubs as smooth as possible. And ultimately, it should give players enough time to work together with their club members to move along together.
Did you get a twinge of that warm fuzzy community feeling from reading all that? We hope so!
