Did you know Zileas during your tenure at Blizzard

Yes. We didn’t overlap at Blizzard (even though he even worked on WoW), but we knew the same people and showed up at parties together. He seemed like a smart dude, but I wasn’t that impressed with LoL in the early days. It just seemed like a DOTA clone to me. As I watched LoL grow and grow I realized maybe I had been hasty and there was something really resonating with players and I needed to take a closer look at LoL and Riot. Needless to say, I liked what I saw.
I like working for Zileas a lot. He gives me a lot of latitude, but doesn’t let me get away with bullshit or bad ideas either. I try to lead using a similar philosophy.
