The man who tried to reform League of Legends player behavior leaves Riot

He made a splash in the online game community through his efforts to make League of Legends less toxic for players -- and now he's exiting the company.

Today, Riot Games lead designer of social systems Jeffrey Lin announced his departure from the League of Legends developer via Twitter. 

Lin, who holds a PhD in psychology, is well known online for his efforts to cut down on the toxicity of the League of Legends player-base through a variety of tactics. 

"To players: keep giving feedback and working with Riot to make League last for another decade, so I can one day teach my future son how to play this crazy game," Lin wrote in his goodbye message.
