Can you tell me what the titles of your books are and what they are about? Or at least send me a link to somewhere where I can read up about them?

Also how did you become a Rioter? Why did you decide to work at Riot? And if your a writer why didn't you apply for a job in Riot's Lore department?

I'd be a bit sad if we don't get a reply soon. I may not have this bookmarked and check it out 48 hrs later or something x.x

Morgageddon takes a sip of his hot chocolate as he peers over the list of questions. He begins to answer them, even as Chuck continues to play on his other monitor...

“French Vanilla ice cream or Vanilla ice cream?”

French Vanilla Ice Cream

“What's the best thing about working for Riot?”

The people are the best thing. Everyone is more than happy to show you around the project they are working on, and if you’re interested, let you talk to them about it and see if you can help!

“Quick choose: Ghost Bride or Blackthorn?”

Ghost by a mile :P

“One quick technical question! So if my computer shuts off randomly from playing games like LoL and Smite, and I have tried many things to fix it, do you think its a possibility that my graphics card is overheating?”

I’d look into downloading a temperature program, like CPUID and see what levels your computer runs at. If your GPU or CPU are above 70C, you have a serious issue and need extra fans, heat sinks, or to clean the dust off of it.

“Couple of Questions:

1: As you are a new hire, What are the qualifications you needed to work at our favorite service provider? 1a: And if you had more than what was needed, how much more?

2: What is your favorite Champion? And What do you bring to a game with that champion?(eg, how you play him/her/it)

3: Does riot pay well?”


1: It depends on the job you apply to, but most require a history of game industry experience or coding experience. I had a lot more than required for this job, but since it was my first in the game industry, I appreciated having it.
2: Morgana. I usually win mid lane at mid game and then gank from mid into the other lanes, exerting my dominance as an AP mid…with great passion. I usually poke hard with her W and Q if I can, before falling back and auto attack farming mid until my W is up again and farm with that.
3: Riot pays competitively in the field, I believe is the phrase on the hiring website.

“Do you have any tips for jungling? And in your opinion, who is the easiest jungler to learn?”

Jungling is my worst role, however, I’d practice timing, knowing when and where you can use your lanes to your advantage, and aggressive warding. I’d put Amumu up there as easy, but really hard to use well.

“What is the most unpleasant thing you have ever felt? "Felt" in the tactile sense.”

I impaled my foot through a wooden stake. Needless to say, it was painful.

“What is your favorite color?

What is your most hated color?”


Purple is my favorite, and a bright orange is my most hated.

“Where can we report tooltip inconsistencies?”

You can post those on the bug report forms, I try and read most of the posts there.

“How do you feel about triangles?”


Like a square.

“Can you speak to how often you would say technical issues come up with players that are a direct result of Adobe Air being the main delivery system of LoL?”

Hi again! For the most part, it’s usually an issue with improper network configuration rather than Adobe Air failings.

“What champ would you pick to be the best man at your wedding?”

Jayce. Have you seen him in a Tux?

“Anime..

Like. Love. Dislike. Hate.

?”

Unknown.

What was your field of study while in school? What position do you play in Ranked? Also are all of your posts going to be in a third-person perspective?

A young, shaggy-headed boy scratches his head idly, inspiration comes from his right. He taps away at his keyboard.

Favorite book?

Not so favorite book?

I asked about triangles because I've been in a funk listening to alt-J for about a week straight. Along those lines, what kind of music do you like?
