Martin "Deficio" Lynge has left Riot Games to take up a freelance role with the organization, the popular EU LCS caster announced Thursday.
Deficio got his start in professional League of Legends as a player, but joined Riot as a caster in 2014, and has been at the EU LCS ever since. According to a statement Deficio made on Facebook, he will continue to cast EU LCS games.
"I’ll continue to cast EU LCS on a regular basis, and I don’t plan to move into any other games," Deficio said. "The move to a freelancer will allow me to work as an independent consultant on a few projects that I feel really passionate about. I have loved my time at Riot, and there’s a lot more I want to do to help grow esports in Europe."
Deficio did not clarify what other kinds of projects he's hoping to work on.
