Never touched LoL, never going to. A horrifically toxic community maintained by a horrifically toxic company.
I gotta say: I hate LOL. I used to love it, I regret ever playing it
A lot to unpack here, but it's a story that needs to be told and is worth the time to listen and reflect on.
an amazing amount of work went into this account of sexism at Riot

Sexism in the gaming industry.

Wonderful (albeit unsettling in many respects) article.
This is an excellent read and something we ALL need to be mindful of.
So toxic in game and toxic IRL?
This is outstanding work.
This story is amazing and everyone who cares/doesn't care about video games should read it.

Disappointing to hear, but (unfortunately) not surprising. Very sad this is as big a problem as it is.
As a long-term fan of League of Legends, this is distressing (but essential) reading.

Hmm I wonder what the female rioters I know have to say about this
TBH, this is literally the least surprising article ever.
This is exactly what is wrong with the gaming industry. Prepare to read bro tears in the comments.
A shame... Pragmatic enough to realize it likely happened but optimistic enough that things could change...

Jesus, this was hard to read.
Dude bro gaming culture toxic? What a surprise.
shocked the company that gave us Playboy Bunny Riven has an unhealthy attitude towards women, shocked, I say
Good article about the pitfalls and myths of "culture fit" in the tech industry.

Honestly not surprised in the least bit
Literally who are Riot games? I cannot remeber.

Great reporting by Kotaku on this story, with many workplace themes (sadly) that go well beyond gaming companies.
