People can change, but it's slow. If they actually want change at @riotgames then those responsible need to go.

Riot Games says it wants to clean up its mess, but the people who made it are still there:
You have to cut the rot out before you can heal.

If accountability does not arise from within, it may eventually arrive from without.
Not sure who to hate more, Riot for being sexist pricks, or Kotaku for being ambulance chasers.
Al parecer el ambiente laboral en Riot es un asco, y contratarán a un ex ejecutivo de Uber para mejorarlo 🤷🏻‍♂️
another extremely vital piece for this ongoing story
Riot continues to say thing while doing another
which is why they're never going to fix their mess

Fermez ce studio de merde. Qu'on vive tous dans un monde un peu meilleur.
A month after our Riot Games investigation, we followed up to see if there were any real changes happening. We disc…
Glad to see Kotaku following up on reporting this story.
"these allegations have been investigated" does not mean they have been investigated in good faith, Riot.
yup....sounds about right...
I really hate saying "I told you so."
If you are in gaming and don't find the things happening at Riot appalling then you are part of the problem.
