I'd do almost anything to work there, but the air in LA might as well be the air on mars for all that I could breathe of it, and while I might consider myself above-average intelligence, I could never afford college and so don't have a crisp piece of paper that says i'm smart, so i'll never get to join the ranks.


C'est la vie.

To give some examples:

1) How would you create a system to encourage players not to AFK in games? Not to leave games?

2) What vision research could you use to help design Spectator Mode to be more aesthetic and pleasing to the observer?

3) What research in color blindness could you use to help improve Color Blind mode and to improve new features to be color-blind friendly?

You could call it bias, but I did choose to come to Riot instead of a few other top places in academics and industry.

Haha no, I've been playing top lane this season so a lot of Kayle, Irelia, Jax, Darius, etc.

Seeing some comments here, it came a question to my mind. Do you research about the psychological efects of particles in the game when you are designing a champion, monster, etc? Like if nocturnes ult darkness its made the way it is because you studied the best way to make it "scary" or someone just did it without making any deep psycological research?

How would other degrees fit into this model; I am a graduate student in history and I love trying to improve both my game and my community interaction. Is there a specific time period that most internships take place like during summer time or is all year-round that internships occur?

It depends on the student/person. For some students it's during the summer, for others it's during the fall quarter. Many interns finish their 3-6 month internship and return to school to finish their degree with full-time offers from Riot waiting for them when they are done.
