“Big career update,” read the announcement, “I’ve spent the past few months meeting and talking to a lot of great people and teams, and I’m now pleased to announce that I’m working on their upcoming MMO project at Riot Games. I’m excited and looking forward to this new challenge, stay tuned!”
playing a constructive role in the development of both The Witcher 3 And cyberpunk 2077As with any other game to come from the studio, Tomaszkiewicz has worked with CD Projekt Red for over 12 years.
Tomaszkiewicz hasn’t worked on an MMO yet, but has played a key role in the development of the quests, which means it could be a continuation of his skills in that area. Riot Games hasn’t released many details about the new game, other than what will it be based on? League of Legends.
In related news, Riot Games has shared how they will deal with AFK (off the keyboard) players League of Legends, in a post titled “Tackling AFKs”.
Currently, AFK players who skip games in a row face a queue delay, which means waiting fifteen minutes before queuing for a game, a penalty that applies up to 5 games.
However, Riot Games is introducing queuing lockdowns that will cut repeat offenders out of MOBA queues altogether.
