Does anyone know where we can find info on who is on each Blizzard team. I want confirmation that he specifically is on the Starcraft team and not wow or diablo.

I'm confused, did you just post old news from last year? I could see missing the news previously, but you also posted a reply to that same old news article...

Or is there something I'm missing between the lines?

The problem is that you can't. Blizzard holds their employees under an NDA and they also protect their privacy. Most companies do...

There is no public record?

PT attatched a thread, yet the only thing we know is that he works for Blizzard. Sadly after that you can't get much information. Else, if he is your close friend and you both get secret identities when talking to each other.

OMG!
And I said almost the exact same thing back then! I must be losing my mind.


Oh wow lol I do remember this now. I thought there was something about joining the D3 team and not the SC2 team.


Anyway sorry for the mistake people.

Just to clarify, did he join the D3 team or is my mind now making that up?

Yeah, because some gangster may be sent to track an employee and torture him to reveal all secrets of Starcraft 2....

I've met him a couple times, nice chap. I don't think he's on the SC2 team though.
