Welcome Tyvalir!(1)Category: GeneralAugust-7-2014 6:08 PM PDT (7 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Hey everyone,

Please join me in welcoming Tyvalir to the North American Diablo III Community Team!

As with many of you here, Tyvalir possesses a strong passion for Diablo III and is incredibly excited to be joining us on our many adventures throughout Sanctuary. In between the normal community manager functions of meeting with developers, writing feature articles, engaging on social media, and attending live events, he'll be joining us here on the forums discussing Diablo III with all of you—endeavoring to be a conduit for information as well as a voice for the Blizzard community.

Random Facts About Tyvalir:

  • He hails from south Texas, so is naturally attuned to heat of the Burning Hells
  • He previously worked as a contributing author over at Diablo III IncGamers (where you may have known him as "Waterfiend")
  • He loves the Witch Doctor, but will be rolling a Demon Hunter (SC) and Crusader (HC) when Seasons hit
  • He first played Diablo on a netbook and he's been hooked on the series ever since
  • He is the newest community manager at Blizzard, and is therefore burdened with the task of carrying around an adorable pirate octopus plush toy, referred to as the "FNG Pirate" (lol)

So, without further ado: Welcome, Tyvalir!

Thanks, everyone! I'm so excited and honored to be here with all of you!

You all have so many great ideas for making Diablo III even better, and I'm looking forward to reading and sharing your thoughts with our development team. I'm also fired up about writing posts and generally sharing cool stuff happening in the game. ;)

Rio Grande Valley represent!

So that's one thing Tyvalir and I have in common.

Really glad you're here now.

Sorry there's no Whataburger within several hours drive.

Welcome to the team, Tyvalir!

It's always a good sign when a new member of the team hits the ground running, and inspires others to raise the bar. I look forward to what the future holds!

Don't worry, Vaeflare, he's set. I picked up all those bones and put them in my beard.

Welcome once more unto the breach, dear Tyvalir!

If I'm gonna be late responding due to a vacation, of course I'm gonna quote Shakespeare.

And stand back. I bite.
