Nikasaur Leaving Riot Games, A Sad Story

posted by Mousse, 230 days ago
"Today I left Riot." This is how Nikasaur's post on her tumblr starts. Really bad news for Summoners Showcase' fans. Read more about the reasons below.

Who is Nika Harper?

Known as Nikasaur she is the host of the famous Summoner Showcase and also the Community Coordinator at Riot Games.

Today I left Riot.

And it was one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make. The people, the game, the community… all of it is inseparable from me since I started three years ago.

Three years is a long time in the universe of League of Legends. I started the day after Season One began, in a flurry of activity and excitement. The community team was three people. We shared a room with Player Support which was only three people too. The world was different then, and I was taking a chance on a company who I had so much belief in.(...)

You can read the whole post HERE.


What will happen to the Summoner Showcase?

Nikasaur made a post on League of Legends forums.

Our next episode of the Showcase, 113, will be the last of the series. It has been an amazing time. I've met so many incredible fans and shared so many moments… (...)
The Showcase Facebook page will continue, with frequent updates of art and must-see fan creations, and our new Tumblr page with even more. What's next? We'd love to hear it from you. Give us your ideas for what you wanna see from Riot to support the community. After all, it's about you, it should come from you as well.(...)


If you want to follow Nika Harper, check out her twitter, facebook, website and youtube.

League of Legends will be nothing without the community but Riot staff is also important, you can't deny it. We can only thank Nikasaur for her work there, and appreciate the whole staff behind League of Legends.

Summoners showcase was obviously a fail, otherwise Riot would've assigned someone to take over after Nika left.

Nika probably expected to grow with the company but couldn't keep up to their standards. Let's face it, the summoner showcase SUCKED.

I would imagine that her payroll didn't grow as much as some other early employees who made themselves more useful. In the end I guess Riot wanted to stop producing the showcase and that was the end of it.

after reading all this HORRIBLE harmful comments, some smallbrained creatures wrote (not calling any names) I just had to register and create an account to say something:

I liked... still like. love! your work, Nikasaur. You're full of energy and bring a smile to peoples face even if they had a bad day. The content of the showcase was not made for everyone. There are a lot of people who give shit about wonderful drawn pictures, tiny little adorable figures or creative reciepts created in mercyless hot kitchenfights. But for every single one of those linear thinking dudes out there you find at least 10 openminded chaotic players who appreciate what you do for them.
It's sad, that you leave Riot. But HELL! 3 years is a long time and I totaly understand your urge to try out something new even if you love your work. A lot of people will miss you.

THANK YOU!
