One of the most notable developers for League of Legends has left Riot Games for a “new challenge.” Lead Designer of Social Systems Jeffrey Lin announced on Twitter yesterday that he is no longer with the studio.
“Joining Riot has been one of the most epic quests in my life, but today, that quest comes to an end,” Lin posted. “Thank you for embarking on this wild roller coaster ride with me. Social design was pretty new in the games and tech industries, and exploring uncharted territory with you has been a thrilling experience.”
In other League of Legends news, Riot has banned three professional teams from future championship series events. Owners of Renegades, Team Dragon Knights, and Team Impulse were accused and found guilty of mistreating (and not paying) their players, among other violations.
