Riot Scarizard sent out a blog earlier today explaining that he will be leaving Riot games. While it lacks detail Scarizard has cited that the reason he is leaving is because he wants to follow his heart.
Read the full blog here where he thanks Rioters and everyone else.
Scarizard has worked at Riot games since 2012 as a Balance designer. He hosted the league patch run down videos from Riot after a patch, league podcasts and also posted other content you have probably read over the years.
As a member of the community regardless of opinions on his balancing he will be missed. Scarizard has stated that he will leave his DM’s open on twitter so feel free to talk to him about anything league related or not. He will be taking a few weeks off before he moves on to his next projects.
