What is a summoner icon?

As a quick rundown, the summoner icon is the little piece of art tied to your League of Legends account. It is the same one you see above your (and others’) names when you load into a game. Not only are they visible there, but they are one of the first things people see when they look into accounts.

In terms of customization, there are a lot of different summoner icons available in the game. A majority of them are tied to specific events in-game, but acquiring them are relatively easy.
