Riot Games started off as a small, indie publisher and developer in 2006. They grabbed the free to play, games as a service model popular in the East and paired it with the AAA production quality of the West. This has been extremely successful: the company is breaking records everywhere while you can see a lot of others trying to emulate its recipe for success. If there is one particular area where Riot is way ahead of the competition though, it's the focus on its players. Most Rioters, while super professional, are extremely humble, approachable, and truly, 110% player focused. You can see this paying off time and time again, with League becoming the most played, watched and streamed PC game ever. I feel super fortunate to have been a part of this exceptional studio and group of people from 2012 to 2017.
