It's EVE Online's
loss and League of Legends'
gain as Kristoffer Touborg
said that he's moving from CCP
to Riot Games
. The former EVE Online
lead designer announced the news on his Facebook page
, praising his former job while anticipating "something new" with League of Legends
"It's been an incredible five years, working for a company I love, on a game I love. Not a lot of people get that opportunity, but I did and I'll always be grateful that CCP let me work at a place where I'd get up every morning and be happy to go to work," Touborg said. "You can't do the same thing forever though and I feel like after more than five years, it's time to try something new."
Touborg has nothing but excitement for his new position: "A few years ago, my overwhelming interest was the EVE
universe; now it's League of Legends
and the competitive scene there. To everyone at CCP, it's been wonderful and I would happily do it all over again. To everyone at Riot, I'll see you soon."
