Removed Comment Riot has a history of poor treatment for workers, especially marginalized groups. They recently just settled a $100m lawsuit over it. And Gaywallet is also correct that League has one of the most toxic communities in gaming (at least that I've experienced). If I was guessing why, it has a lot to do with how complicated League is and how beginner-unfriendly it is. The game has so many champions and concepts that you really need to understand to play the game "correctly" that it is difficult-to-impossible for a new user to learn everything they need to by themselves and the tutorials are basically useless. So you have new players who don't understand the game through no fault of their own being thrown into games with a very toxic community that prioritizes winning over fun or "treating your teammates like people". Its a bad system that fails everyone involved. There's a lot more to it that gets involved with the nuances of the different queues and such but I believe that gets across the biggest issues. I still watch League eSports because the game is theoretically really really fun, but the community pushed me out of playing and my involvement with eSports is mostly limited to watching and maybe discussions on Discord servers for a team. To offer an opposing view to Gaywallet, despite all of this I still play Riot's games. I totally understand where they are coming from and support them in their decision. Anecdotally, I have friends who work at Riot in various departments and they have said that since the original story broke they have noticed a distinct change in company culture. It is still a long way from perfect and who knows if the improvements are only temporary, but its the closest I've seen to actual change from a major game studio with a scandal. by @MicholasMouse reason: accidental duplicate
