Good News For World Of StarCraft Modder

If you're going to get bullied, get bullied in public. People notice. If you've followed the story of the World Of StarCraft mod, you'll know that a mod team picked a really dumb name for their ambitious MMO project, and Activision-Blizzard went down the tiresomely dumb route of banning the existence of videos of the work in progress from the internet. But here comes the twist. According to Pixelated Geek, front man Ryan has been offered a potential postion working for League Of Legends developer, Riot Games.

The opportunity to see if he'd fit in at Riot was offered in a comment on PG itself.

"Ryan, I’d like to speak with you about potentially working for Riotgames (League of Legends). You can contact me directly at epak@riotgames.com since I think you’re awesome."

Ryan has expressed his excitement at the chance. He told PG,

"I would be a complete idiot not to... I’ve waited my whole life for something like this. I feel like I’m in a dream man."

So there you go. A potentially happy ending for Ryan.

What would have made more sense would be for Actiblizz to have made the job offer rather than the legal threats, of course. But with a copyright infringing name like the mod has, their lawyers would have been incapable of resisting.
