digitalmars.D - OT: I'm back

Hello,

Just wanted to congratulate Walter and the community for keeping D going 
strong for so long.  Its nice to see some features such as pure and 
ranges have actually become realities.  D 2.0 feels like its no-longer a 
sibling language of D 1.0.

I imagine a lot of people here don't remember me when I left a few years 
ago to focus on a free game called league of legends 
(www.leagueoflegends.com).  Its been released however we're still 
working on making it even better.

PPS: Riot is looking for some strong senior engineers (3years+ 
experienced) so if your looking for work you may check out

Yeah, I recall you. You are the one who introduced my to LoL by mentioning it over a year ago :) Good job on the the game, btw! It's great to have something unique and easy to jump in, rather than another total DotA clone, as hardcore as the original one. Glad to see you around again! :)

Just out of curiosity, what's the business model? Is there in-game advertising or something? --bb

There is an in-game Store, where you can buy some goods that are not mandatory to play the game, but still useful. For example, you can only select 10 out of 40 champions to play with (unless you purchase some of them - once purchased, these champions are always allowed to be played with), and these 10 are being rotated every week so you can play all the champions, but have to wait for a proper week to come. Some additional information is available here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/League_of_Legends#Store

We would look at good C++ and java developers although Game programming experience is a plus. Send me your resume if you want the username is hohums and its a gmail account.
