Username update client prompt on pause 

Here's Riot Aether with an update on the Riot account/username update prompt issues that were seen this week:
"Last week, we began rolling out emails to players who need to update their username as part of our transition to Riot Accounts (more info here). These emails include a list of accounts attached to your email address, as well as links to learn more about why we're making these changes. For some, that list might include forgotten accounts—maybe you were on vacation in another region, maybe you signed up for PBE, maybe you wanted to play with a friend who lives somewhere else. While most cases of username duplication are legitimate instances of two different people having the same username that have to be addressed, having a list of your accounts decreases the chance of you accidentally taking your username away from yourself. And just to clarify, the email will not let you know if a different player has the same username as you, due to security risks that arise even if we don't tell you exactly who has the account or what region they're on. 
Unfortunately, the process of distributing those emails is taking longer than planned. As a result, some of you have run into a mandatory in-client prompt to change your username without knowing why we're asking you to, and without having the account information the email provides. We've disabled the in-client prompt for now until the email distribution process is complete. You'll see a dismissable version of the prompt come back soon to make as many people aware of the upcoming change as possible, but we won't make the prompt mandatory again until all emails have been sent. 
We know this transition has caused a lot of confusion. Our hope is that features like the client's "Stay Signed In" toggle will minimize the frustration of having to adjust to a new username, and that by getting this process done now, your experiences with the upcoming games announced during the 10-year anniversary stream will be smooth.

Ask Riot: Skins & Music 

Check out this week's Ask Riot - "How’d we pick the True Damage champs? Are they getting Prestige skins? What’s next for Riot music?"
It’s all about the boppin’ beats and skins today. 
Are the new True Damage skins all getting Prestige skins like K/DA got? If so when?We’ve teased it before in a few places, but we can confirm that True Damage Senna is also getting a Louis Vuitton-inspired Prestige skin early next year, which will be available in the 2020 Prestige Point shop. We’ll have more details about whether there will be additional True Damage Prestige skins early next year. 
By the way, we’re making some changes to the way Event Prestige skins and Prestige Points interact for 2020. You can check out all the details here

How’d you pick the champions for True Damage?

In general, picking champions for a big skin line requires us to synthesize a lot of different factors: Which champions best fit the theme? Which champs make sense together? What champions currently need skins? And for the music skin lines, their individual personalities really has to make sense with the type of music and role we give them in their group. 
We knew that we wanted to do something that felt a little more edgy than K/DA and that was also hip-hop inspired. Additionally, we wanted to create a diverse and eclectic line-up who could believably join forces to create a genre-blending song. Based on that premise, Ekko as a time-manipulating rhyme genius seemed like a really cool idea to explore as the group’s centerpiece. We also knew we wanted to connect this group to K/DA through Akali, who’s the brain behind this collaboration, to expand on our music fantasy world. Qiyana just has the perfect I’m-the-queen attitude that we were looking for, and Yasuo is the silent producer “cutting-up” the beats. Add in the timing of Senna’s release, who’s one of our most requested champions, and you have a perfectly lined up roster that fulfilled our original goals. We hope you liked our choices! 
Lead Producer of Skins , Personalization 
When will we have a true boy band of League champions? We got metal with Pentakill, pop with Popstar, K-Pop with K/DA, but where is the boy band?

Well first the Champions Team needs to make enough pretty boys to make up an entire boy band, then it will be up to the Personalization Team to deliver, if they should choose to. 
Hold my beer. 
Lead Producer of Champions 
Will K/DA and True Damage ever get a more complete album similar to Pentakill? Or will Pentakill (Karthus, Sona, etc.) ever make a comeback with a nice song? 
Personally, I would love to see some of our past bands and artists release new songs. With the latest group from our Music Universe, TRUE DAMAGE, hitting the stage at Worlds, we are now back in the studio planning what comes next. Everything is on the table as we look into what the next progression in music will be. We hope players have enjoyed what we have done so far.

Have a question? Click on the button below, sign into your League account, and ask away. 
We’ll do our best to read every question, but we can’t guarantee they’ll all get answers. Some questions may already be answered elsewhere, and some won’t be right for Ask Riot. This isn’t the best place to announce new features, for example, and we might skip conversations on issues we’ve talked about in depth before (though we can clarify individual points). 
We are listening, though, so keep asking. We’ll make sure your questions are heard by the Rioters working on the stuff you’re curious about."
