Aloha! We’ve got a new StarCraft Community Manager for you today. Please welcome Zoevia!

Follow her on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/ZoeviaBlizzard

Zoevia is a Blizzard veteran who comes to us with a rich background in player interaction, so she should fit right in. As a means of better introducing Zoevia to you, I dusted off the old Battle.net View-only Time Machine™ and looked ahead to your posts in this thread, gathered your questions in advance, and presented them to her a few days ago. In doing so, we created a completely new timeline that you’re all now adhered to! Sorry about that.

Zoevia, it’s your introductory AMAA!

Q: So. Terran, or what?

Q: Who’s the most famous person you know IRL?

Q: If you were a tree, what tree would you be?

Q: Strangest thing that’s ever happened to you while playing a video game?

Q: Least-strange thing that’s ever happened to you while playing a video game?

Q: How do I overcome ladder anxiety safely and without discomfort?

Q: Seriously, what’s your favorite? Seriously.


Important note: The Battle.net View-only Time Machine™ has a redonkulous cooldown, and the World of Warcraft team has dibs on its next use. Please question responsibly.

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to be a part of this team and look forward to getting to know all of you a bit better.

Q: So. Terran, or what?

A: Terran up my heart! Okay, now for a bit of a serious answer. I appreciate Zerg for a myriad of different reasons not restricted to their lore, the synergy of their abilities and watching them in competitive play.

Q: Who’s the most famous person you know IRL?

A: Community Manager Kaivax. (He may or may not have paid me to say this.)

Q: If you were a tree, what tree would you be?

A: Douglas fir! I like being consistent and they smell awesome. Also native to western North America.

Q: Strangest thing that’s ever happened to you while playing a video game?

A: Having the hiccups for three hours while playing. I would get so into the game that I’d forget and then SURPRISE, hiccup.

Q: Least-strange thing that’s ever happened to you while playing a video game?

A: My cat realizing I am distracted and knocking over a cup on my desk. This is pretty much a frequent occurrence, so much so that for Christmas I got lidded cups as a gift.

Q: How do I overcome ladder anxiety safely and without discomfort?

A: The best thing I’ve found is get together with some friends and challenge each other. Essentially, prep yourself to win/lose in a best case scenario. Or this could be the worst case scenario, depending on your group of friends.

Q: Seriously, what’s your favorite? Seriously.

A good drink, great company and an evening of eSports. Seriously.

Hi!

Just a small question, here -- what caused you to decide on a train for your portrait?

Oh nooo! Don't tell me you're an N'SYNC girl. We sit next to each other, and I'm all about the Backstreet. This... this could be a problem.

You're not planning on bringing this lil kitty into work are you?.. I really like my keyboards. Maybe.. it's time to hang them up.

Sure, I think I can answer this without the thread getting...derailed.

Trains are beautiful, I love them as a form of transportation. The Great Train Robbery mission from the WoL campaign is one of my favorites. And nothing quite comes at you like a train on the tracks.

Welcome, Zoevia!

Usual important questions:

Who has the best beard, and why is it Kaviax?

Do you like beards, and why is the answer yes?

Do you like bacon? Do you know what the forums would do if you say no?

Enjoy your new position at Blizzard, and look forward to interacting with you if you happen to daring enough to mingle with the greens.

Sure, I think I can answer this without the thread getting...derailed.

Oh, lordy.. that pun..
