It will be a collaborative effort with German modder mille25, who also created a StarCraft-style MMO with the game’s toolkit. Winzell said it is a name approved by Blizzard.
As far as a possible job with Riot Games is concerned though, the design communications student told the site he “really asn’t prepared for all of this,” and doesn’t “even have a resumé typed up.”
“I’m working on that to send one in to them,” said Winzell. “I feel like, I don’t know, like I’m still in a dream.”
