Why would an employee leave Riot Games?

Riot Games is basically the apex of this industry - is it really even possible that another company would give them a comparable package? From what I've heard, Riot's compensation is excellent. Do people not want employment at a game company to be the crowning achievement of their lives? I really am perplexed. I guess I'm just amazed that some people have the means and the agency to just leave what might be the most secure/gainful employment in this industry in order to "move on." Move on to what? Outside of like being offered an executive position at Blizzard I couldn't imagine what moving on would entail. Riot is the top of the tier - it seems more like a lateral move backwards (at best) and a descent otherwise. I admit. I'm a minimum wage retail worker. I don't get it. I'm jaded.
