1: How do you pronounce "Ythisens"?

Yith(imagine Mike Tyson saying yes)-e-sens.

2: Why "Ythisens"? What story does it have? What does it say about you?

It was given to me on my first day as a Game Master. Since I already had a relationship with the name internally I decided to just keep it. In hindsight I probably should've changed it to something easier to pronounce.

I wish they'd let you guys honestly address the Horde situation at Blizzard.

I'd be curious to see what the actual demographic of Blizzard employees is regarding Horde or Alliance. I think people would be surprised as I think its pretty balanced. I had to actually gear up Alliance characters during Legion just to play with employees that roll alliance. I'm not sure how it was back in the day but I'd say it's probably like 60 percent Horde.

Do your guildmates know you're a CM, or is that something you guys have to keep on the hush-hush? Or merely a choice to remain anonymous?

Most people that I play with regularly know I'm a CM.

And finally after all that work, I will be able to server transfer my rogue, race transfer, sneak up on the poor ox and sap him until he begs the devs to do something about unlimited rogue saps. :D

Good luck. I haven't died to a Rogue jump since MoP on the Timeless Isle.

@Ythisens

Do you enjoy PvP?

Do you regularly PvP?

What is your favorite Arena map?

What is your most satisfying PvP kill (circumstances of the kill)?

Also, can you do me a favor and ask the mods at MMO-C to unban me from posting on their forums? :)

Yep!

I don't usually unless I'm after something. I'm very much a grinder so I go after specific rewards. Achievements, Appearances, mounts, etc.

What is your favorite Arena map?

Tiger's Peak or Ashamane's Fall

Favorite Battleground?

Alterac Valley. Never not turtle.

1v3 against a Feral Druid and two Rogues as a Ret Paladin. They tried to jump me on Argus on like the second or third week. They opened on me. Medallion'd the Kidney into SoV+Wings+WoA. HoJ'd the second higher health rogue. Double crit TV via Divine Purpose proc and killed the Druid(deleted him really). Then I just kept the higher health rogue locked down while I finished off his lower Rogue friend and then finished off the last Rogue. I think it took around a min and a half ish? Had quite a few lucky Divine Purpose procs throughout the fight.
I should've lost as I'm terrible at PVP but I don't think they knew what to do if someone outlived their burst and fought back. Apparently they had spent the entire day doing that to people.
Threads like this are the best.

You've been playing for a long time, so you've been able to experience just about everything when it was current. So what's your favorite dungeon?

Favorite quest?
Here is a hard one: WOTLK or BC?
So many questions asked and answered. I feel like we're really peeling the layers on this CM onion.

Oooo favorite dungeon is hard. I always liked doing Sunken Temple and Uldaman. There wasn't anything inherently hard about them but progressing though them was always fun. If you're talking aesthetics then definitely Grimrail Depot because its a moving train and that's just rad. Freehold might take it because, well pirates and Shark Puncher.

Can I just pick zones? Nagrand

That's not even hard for me. The Burning Crusade. It was the first expansion I raided in and I just have a lot of memories of learning more about the game in that time frame. It's very much a nostalgia thing for me in that regard. My favorite expansion though is probably Mists of Pandaria.

Yeah that sounds like a great idea. Get harassed indefinitely so someone can snoop your gear. Haha what?
I've stopped by on Malganis to talk to Ion a few times. One of the first things I asked him, "Do you often get lots of whispers from angry players?" His reply was that it happens sometimes, but more often than not, the conversations he has with players are pleasant.

Contrary to what the forums may have you believe, the majority of WoW players are not of the variety you suggest.
The real question is...

Coffee, or tea?

It's official: Burning Crusade is better than Wrath of the Lich King. You heard it here first.

Even when people aren't angry, it just seems like it would be annoying. You kind of figure Ion is a person like anyone else and is probably logging in to relax and play the game, not continue to field questions as lead dev or whatever his title is now.

99% of players that find me and message me are actually very pleasant as well. It's very rare that I have a negative experience.

Damn right.
Every time I look at the blue tracker on Wowhead and find a post by Ythisens I find it to be excellent. Intelligent, just the right amount of snark when necessary. Are you as cool a person in real life as you are on the forums? You seem like you would be a really fun person to hang out with.

Also, does Blizzard have an "employee of the month" type thing, and can we vote for you?
I have a couple questions:
1) Ever been defeated in a 1v1 outside Org to a gnome mage named Shipoopi?
2) Do u want to? (If so, please bring the bloodelf). ;)

Seriously tho, thanks for being such a cool CM.
<3

P.s. It doesn’t have to be Org
Hey Ythisens! If you could be able to talk to ANY one character from WoW for a single day, who would you choose? Personally I would want to talk to Malfurion Stormrage and have a nice chat about nature.

I talk possibly way too much about WoW, music, and anime so I'm probably a little annoying sometimes.

Nobody takes on mages in 1v1s, that's just asking for a bad time.

Please tell me that your favorite anime is Dragon Ball Z.

Thats the best ever imo. :)
Do you or the other blues ever post on the forums with your actual characters as regular players?

Nat Pagle. I'd be down to fish and just hangout all day.

I do love DBZ but too much filler for me. Favorite is probably Claymore, FLCL, or Iron Blooded Orphans.

I used to but not since I became a blue.

That's why you watch Dragon Ball Kai instead and pretend it was Z all along.
