So Ive been browsing some PC game sites in my language so I cant really link to it but let me tell you what this is all about and then ask a question @Riot.

So apparently there was a guy named Ryan who was working on a Starcraft mod named "World of Starcraft" that basically plays a bit like WoW in the Starcraft 2 universe.

After an alpha trailer being launcher Blizzard-Activision forced youtube to remove all videos of it and Riot games offered him a job.


So I wonder...is that stuff true because I cant find it on an english site atm O_o"

True that...but I would really like to know if Riot wants to hire that kid...

Because I think its funny that Blizzard tries to shut talent down instead of being smart...in that case like Riot seems to be

Yeah, its true, there was a thread on it earlier. The community started fawning over Riot for being a big-hearted corporate Oprah, and I got downvoted to hell for pointing out it was simply a savvy business decision.
