Nika Says : Write On!
A Riotous Farewell

Today I left Riot.

And it was one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make. The people, the game, the community… all of it is inseparable from me since I started three years ago.

Three years is a long time in the universe of League of Legends. I started the day after Season One began, in a flurry of activity and excitement. The community team was three people. We shared a room with Player Support which was only three people too. The world was different then, and I was taking a chance on a company who I had so much belief in.

This remains true. Today I leave a company who is making great strides in player behavior, eSports, community practices and especially in their exciting gameplay. When people called me the “Face of Riot” I think that’s a lie. I’ve been the face of the FANS of Riot. That’s how it should be.

Today the decision is made that we need to part ways, because we’re growing in different directions.

I want to focus on writing more. I want to make crazy videos and have a little bit more free time to be whatever I want to be, and right now I’m not even sure of what that is. I’m not disappearing as a fan, and nobody could stop me if they tried.

I want to see what else I can do. And I think what I can do is fucking infinite. And I think I’m ready to try.

Thank you all for supporting me, through a lot of sleepless nights and drunken evenings of wondering whether I’m doing the right thing. It’s so difficult, but I know I am.

I’m happy to discuss this with all of you. Just message and tweet:

Thank you Riot and thank you all. So much.
