The Legend of Haste

It started with all-nighters, climbing up the rankings game by game. Champions were slain. The chat was merciless. Lag would derail matches and keyboards would be thrown. Curses would be muttered (or shouted).

Enough was enough. It was time to fix the Internet for gaming.

The creator of Haste decided to bring together his love for League of Legends and his engineering expertise. He built a network infrastructure and wrote algorithms to find better routes. He developed a way to get a better, faster, and more stable connection to the game servers. He created Haste. The rest is history.
