Alright I have been wanting to do this for awhile now.. I want to buy a gaming PC but want to make sure war2 will be alright to play on it. I don't want a super huge monitor but if its able to adjust blackbars for war2 then I guess it would be ok. Price is not really a issue just want a really nice gaming comp... Throw me some links and personal expierences please.

Krib, Katan, WarAngel, MadHatter all also work for Blizzard.. wonder if there are anymore War2 Legends that work there or a list of ones that have and since moved on. We all know KHB of course.. and it seems there is another big one that I use to know but can't remember.

I remember one time on Kali I played someone named like DeathGirl or something, i forget really, and it was back when people all sucked at War2 and I was better than most just by being able to grunt rush.  And this person ended up 3 halling before id ever seen a 3 hall before, and i remember killing a base and thinking i was going to win only to find they were all over the map.  And then at the end of the game they said they were tillerman and iwas like "wow, whoa."  So that was kind of cool, even though i dont think it was even really tillerman.

I have contact with Tillerman maybe I could ask him if he remembers that smurf name :d

"About Smurfing: It seems just about everyone on Kali reads these stories. I never imagined that that many people read the stories. It seems smurfing has become quite the rage on kali. I got into kchat the other day with about 10 of my friends ALL under fake names. Kinda funny. Back to smurfing, It seems no one gets the point of smurfing. We invented smurfing because we had a hard time playing new or intermediate players because our names are too well known. They would go you are too good for me to play. So the point of smurfing is a really good player goes in a game under a fake name and beats up on someone that is less skilled. But the person they beat up on are supposed to believe that that the good player under the fake name sucks. Smurfing was originally a Stormreaver clan deal, Muzzy,Cadaver,Stormshadow,Vermeer, and Warp. But now on kchat and in war2 it seems everyone is a smurf. It's really messed. There are newbies out there or players with intermediate playing abilities playing as smurfs. BUT they arn't the very best at war2 so they end up playing people that are better then them and they end getting beat up. Which makes no sense. Smurfing is Really good players beating up on crappier ones. So the point is, you better be one of the best if you go out smurfing or there really is no point. If you are going to lose, you might as well lose under your real name." - Shlonger 1996

10) Server.War2.ru / Interview with KRIB~~ from War2 Fame
« on: November 07, 2017, 10:12:45 PM »
As part of a new series of Inside Blizzard interviews, we checked in with Chris Glover, our IT department's Service Engineering Director.

Can you tell us in your own words what your job is?

My job at Blizzard is about helping teams balance risk versus availability and reliability of services. In a nutshell, this means engineering services with failure in mind so that when things do fail, the impact to the overall Blizzard experience is minimized.

Most memorable Blizzard moment:

Chris Metzen’s “Geek Is…” speech at BlizzCon 2010 gave me goosebumps.

What advice would you give people wanting to work at Blizzard?

Find a discipline that you are passionate about: art, testing, technology, design, whatever really speaks to you. Work hard to understand the inner workings of that discipline and never stop pursuing improvement, never be satisfied with the status quo.

How’d you find your way to Blizzard?
Playing Warcraft II multiplayer, I became obsessed with understanding why games would sometimes “lag” and what could be done to improve the player experience. This launched a career in network engineering and live site operations which included stops at a couple of major tech companies and ultimately led me to join the Blizzard family in 2005.

You’ve worked here a really long time. What motivates you?
One of my primary motivators is making sure fans and players never experience frustration with their Blizzard experience. It’s very personal for me when services don’t work as expected for our community. I love seeing things work properly, but watching how happy folks are when we find and resolve complex issues quickly is also deeply satisfying.

What was Blizzard like when you started? How have things changed since you first got here?
Blizzard was an amazing company that made off the charts games but was still learning to become a service provider. Seeing that transformation take place over the past 10 years has been an honor and a pleasure. While the journey is far from over we’re starting to achieve 99.9% availability for services, and multiple games are now updating without downtime for players.

What’s the best part about working at Blizzard?

The people. Working with such amazingly creative and passionate people is an inspiration to challenge oneself to continually develop and strive for greatness.

What project are you proudest of?

The deployment of Blizzard’s IP backbone. Having a dedicated IP backbone enables Blizzard to directly connect players to our content and servers, bypassing congestion over the internet. This project stems from that obsession which started over 20 years ago about delivering a better play experience. I couldn’t be more proud of the team that’s making it a reality today.

What’s your favorite Blizzard game? Favorite non-Blizzard game?
I love anything to do with the Warcraft universe but Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos holds a special place in my heart. Outside of Blizzard games, I’m a huge Civilization nut.

You should talk to ejji:reaper about becoming a training partner. BW pro and a WC3 pro coming together.

I am in the same boat as mousetopher.. always willing to game with you but not the best for giving tips. We do have a ton of fun when we get a series going though mixing up new and pros.. so always look for me especially on the weekends.

If you have facebook PM me that as well.
