The North American caster had been working with the EU LCS for four years, having signed on with Riot in 2015.
“Working on the same title (however awesome) and the same Broadcast for four seasons has been somewhat limiting to my growth,” PiraTechnics said. “I want to move in new directions, work in different broadcast environments, and try my voice in new and exciting titles.”
