No, please don't apply. We want people who can contribute, not yes men.

Is there a downside to applying?

Ah right, because then I'd be obligated to listen to your complaints.

Zileas would our Season 2 gold elo count towards applying for the Games Analyst position or do we need to re-earn gold this season for it to count? Just need to know which is a higher priority writing an interesting cover letter or re-earning gold to apply. Since it states under the you are section an elo of gold or higher I feel this is a pertinent question to be asked.

Hey Zileas, figured I'd give my question another shot while you're around (unless you're just not sure of the answer lol) granted, it's related to the associate counsel opening in legal rather than a game designer, but do you know if the experienced graduate part is a firm requirement or would Riot be willing to consider recent grads as well?

Why do you put the signature in some posts and not others?

Dark sorcery? Text-volume based sorcery?

Dark wizardry?

For Creative Design, what kinds of things qualify as "exceptional". Also, is it particularly important whether we've designed things on our own or with school?

Zileas, out of curiosity, do you know if Riot has anyone with Philosophy degrees? It's not too related to gaming development directly, but perhaps in the areas dealing with player behavior, legal areas, or anything of that sort.

I'm a Philosophy (focus in Legal/Political/Social Studies) / Economics double major, and just wondering. My plans are to go directly into law school so I'm not too attached to this idea, but if there was ever any type of legal internships or anything that'd be awesome for me to keep my eye on.

I know it's not really your area, but perhaps you know this for some reason lol.
