Social systems designer Jeffrey Lin, most recently in charge of reducing the sometimes toxic environment in League of Legends, has departed Riot Games. In a post on TwitLonger.com, Lin thanks his friend Ghostcrawler and admitted that a passionate community makes the game better.
To Riot: When I joined here I was just a kid. A mid-level designer with the opportunity to solve an impossible problem. I've made my fair share of mistakes along the way - and learned so much from them - but the journey has been incredible.

Lin gives no indication where he is bound, though he does say that he believes it's 'time for a new challenge'.
