The general line is they wont transfer between EU and NA due to database issues. This is something they said they'd eventually look at, but Teemo needs his skins.
I doubt they'd make an exception for me as it would open the flood gates.
for example is a thread (there are many of them tbf) with people wanting transfers. Really Riot just need to sort their shit out.
I've figured out alternative 4. PBE, it's based on East Coast USA server, so the ping is about 160ish, and you basically get loads of free ip/rp. Cons are it's not up all the time (though up more than down atm) and you don't get as many matches. But free shit is free.
