In other words: if you want an associate/intern engineer position at Riot, go headhunt some senior engeneers for Riot,
so they can generate an associate/intern engineer slot for you!

As I'm sure you can imagine, they probably get boat loads of applications every day.
Did they ever get back to you at all or did you just have to assume you weren't qualified for the position after a prolonged amount of waiting for a response?

Also just out of interest. What position are your thinking about applying for?
Hohums, if you're still here, any chance you could give some insight on what Game Designers do on the job?

I'm sure many people have asked, including myself, but they never give a straight answer...

I'd just like to know what a work day would be like for a typical lower-ranked game designer, so I can grasp whether or not the job is right for me.

Currently, if I think Game Designer, I get a mosaic of activities ranging from concept art, to hand-coding mechanics... Which doesn't seem all that realistic. (Please don't tell me Designers really are geniuses capable of such versatility. I'd rather not know)

It makes me excited, scared and nervous all at once. I just applied for my dream job and am probably going to get rejected... :P

Yes they did get back to me. I am in the middle of the application process. Give it some time, but if too long passes by, it never hurts to take some initiative in trying to reach out to them about your application status
