Hello everyone,

Design and balance on StarCraft II has been a combined effort among everyone on the design team and our community for quite a while now. We believe that the ongoing communication and collaboration between the design team, pro players, and community will keep SC2 the best it’s ever been as a competitive game.

I’ve reached a point in my career where I’ve decided to branch out to a different project, to explore, learn, and grow as a game designer. This other project will be right here at Blizzard, so I hope working on this next game will be as awesome as my experience working on SC2 and with the community. The rest of the SC2 balance team will continue to make updates, and communication with the community will not be interrupted.

I want to say thank you to everyone that loves StarCraft. I’ve spent much of my life dedicated to StarCraft like many of you have, and I feel especially connected to our SC2 community as we’ve grown together while making StarCraft II the best and most skill-based esport in the world. It has been such an incredible honor working with you and I will miss seeing how the pure passion flows out of so many people in constructive ways, and having design discussions as a game developer with such a dedicated, intelligent community of gamers was so extraordinary. I will always be grateful for this amazing experience that most game designers around the world just don’t get to experience at such a deep level.

Thank you so much everyone and I will continue playing and watching StarCraft II as a fan of the game!
Thanks David! I've been enjoying Starcraft II for years now and I will continue to do so! I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for you and Dustin!

Thank you for your efforts. Best of luck on your next phase of your career.
Even though SC2 has had its up and downs for me, I still appreciated the methodical way you crafted change in the game.
Best of luck on your next adventure!
Thanks and good luck! Excited to learn more about your next project!
Good luck and farewell!
I loved talking to you at the Summit, hope to see you around and stay in touch with us over in SC2. I would love to read about your journey as a game designer and the challenges you face(d) while growing.

Godspeed DK!
Thanks for all the dedication and devotion to Starcraft. Now that you don't have to worry about balance I suspect you will chose a single race and "main" that for fun. Obviously, that should be terran. Master race. =)

Good luck in the future!
Good Bye, thanks for everything DK :) Hope next in charge can make good things for this game too.
Warcraft 4!
I'm really sad about what happened to SC2.
Thank you David Kim! I was really honored to meet you briefly at BlizzCon in Nov. and watch the multiplayer panel. The love you've invested into StarCraft 2 will live on forever, even as the multiplayer game evolves under a new steward.
