For those that know him from his past Blizzard community escapades, our beloved @Randydeluxe hath returned to the motherland--and is now planted firmly at a desk with the North American World of Warcraft Community Team. You may know Randy best from his time on-air with Scott Johnson on The Instance, and his insatiable love of bad movies, Hawaii, Diet Dr. Pepper, and BBQ. He’ll be both behind-the-curtain helping to generate content for the World of Warcraft front page, as well as on Twitter and here on the forums to interact with all you beautiful people.

Please join me in welcoming back Kaivax! (@KaivaxBlizzard)

And as we rejoice in our reuniting with one long-lost love, we also bid a fond “you’re going to another game but will still be sitting right next to us” as @Daxxarri takes up a playmat on the Hearthstone Community Team! We know Daxxarri best for teaching us words we didn’t know existed, his aptitude for prose, and that the Children of Gaia can unite the Fera in their eradication of the Wyrm—and we still will because he’s not really going anywhere! Head over to the Hearthstone forums to visit with him and the rest of the Hearthstone crew.

Welcome back Kaivax! I'll do a chair-spin in your honor. Wheeeeeee! :D

As for Daxxari, that explains why they suddenly started rolling need on everything. (Kidding, take care bro.)

Daxxarri is leaving?

Really?

*sobs uncontrollably*


Aw, shed no tears! I will love you... always!

Plus, *points* I'm right over there!

Come play Hearthstone with me. \{◕ O ◕}/ ♥ ┬─┬ ♥ \{◕ O ◕}/

Bye bye Daxxarri - thank you for all the help and advice and fun posts over the years on various WoW forums.


Aw, thanks I--

Welcome (back) to the team, Kaivax! Randy's been amazingly supportive and and great friend since I started at Blizzard and moved to California, and it's great to be working with him.

Best of luck to Daxxarri as well! I know he's going to do great work for the Hearthstone community, which makes me mostly okay with losing my 2's partner.

...Mostly.

When was the last time you checked the guild bank?

Still my favorite Blue.


And you're still my favorite Rootfang.

On a serious note, I will really miss you. Not that anyone remembers, but back in early December i had one of the worst weeks ever and your well wishes genuinely brightened my day. It's easy to underestimate the impact of small gestures in forging your relationship with a community, but you've never been afraid to be a human as well as a CM and I've always appreciated that about you.


Aaaand now I have a million feels. Thanks Hipp. That means a lot to me. ♥

He still doesn't seem very trustful of the Ananasi, but maybe that has more to do with what he thinks of me personally.

If Daxxarri is going to be in the Hearthstone team, time to download Hearthstone :)


Clearly! =D

I've already been loading Kaivax up with work. No idle hands here. ;) Although, it's hard not to try to assign things to Daxxarri still.

Thanks to Kaivax coming back, I now have a new breakfast buddy! And in recognition of Daxxarri's new adventures, we shall toss back some bacon in his honor. I /salute you both!
