So Yannick is leaving/has left Kotaku. I don’t know what prompted it or the rationale and that’s not really the point of this post anyway. For whatever reason, Yannick wasn’t able to have a “goodbye” post. So I figured the next best thing would be for us to say goodbye to him, like so!
Leave your fondest Yannick memories below along with any well wishes.
If you want to reach out to him on Twitter to wish him well he’s @YannickLeJacq
For me, I remember when he tweeted at me that first time (I was very new to twitter and didn’t get that sometimes people are actually people and not wonderous demigods) asking if we were going to play DOTA 2. Or maybe I tweeted him and he answered. The details are fuzzy at this point (I’m working on 2 hours of sleep here) but I was all, OMG SENPAI NOTICED ME!!!!
This was all undone when I was watching twitch and he was all “Who is this Rimsky guy? Well I don’t know him so he’s not playing in my HOTS game.”
Kotaku is going to be diminished in your absence Yannick! Let us know where you end up!
