Despite World of StarCraft
mod creator Ryan Winzen having videos of his work removed
from YouTube after Blizzard requested as much, the ingenious gentleman was offered a job by League of Legends
developer Riot Games this past week. Pixelated Geek
picked up on the back and forth in its own comment section between Winzen and a Riot Games employee identified as "epak", in which the Riot Games employee said, "Ryan, I'd like to speak with you about potentially working for Riotgames (League of Legends). You can contact me directly at [redacted] since I think you're awesome."
The interview offer was confirmed by Riot Games design director "Zileas" on the developer's forums
, where he notes, "I shot him [Ryan] an email recently asking if he was interested in exploring an opportunity here. As to what comes of that, who knows -- that depends on the mutual fit and his own goals." Mr. Winzen, for his part, is ecstatic. " I've waited my whole life for something like this. I feel like I'm in a dream man ... been up for 36 hours straight with all this craziness going on ... How did this even happen?" If you'll excuse us ... we've just ... there's something in our eye
