Greetings,

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately, once a team name has been claimed, it will remain locked in Riot's system regardless if the team is disbanded.

Good Luck!

Hey,

as woraz said the name stays in the system for some time. They may release the names in waves, so you have to be patient and wait until it is available again.

greetings

To prevent people from trying to redo on ranked matches they might have lost, once a team is ranked the name is locked in place, i have yet to see a team name reset as of yet since ranked teams were enabled on the server, this doesn't mean riot will never do it but i wouldn't hold out on waiting for it, picking a team means you have to accept whatever results you get much like sports teams do

Only if riot ever free up the names, if not then there is no way to recover the name as the team is just considered abandoned, if riot do ever release the names then they will make a news article in advance and names will be released and available on a first come first served basis

Sorry to pick up on an old thread, but it fits my question perfectly.

Does this mean I can still disband a team that has not yet played enough matches to qualify as ranked and reclaim the team name with a different tag?

Not sure you would need to test it, its best to think very carefully about the names you pick for your teams
