That's the gentleman I need the AIV to work more personally with Twisted

Good dev blog. Was cool to see a more personal account from a QA Tester/Test Lead illustrating that it's not a job that revolves around "getting paid to play video games".

Dont be mean to the guy. He does the best work possible. This game just has so many variables that may only be found by 1 person. Plus it may take months to find these odd variable occurences... i feel like i am sounding mean or rude

Awesome to hear about the behind the scenes character.

Also, would you make a sandwich from a Locus, Flux, or AV Grenade?

And you get a like! And you get a like! And you, and you, and you!

I like his twist on the sandwich, and kudos on loving being outside with nature!

What does the job entail?

Quite a bit currently, because I am working cross projects. For DUST 514, I prepare release development processes, and I monitor and maintain build clusters (testing areas) for the internal teams. I also code tools for teams and features for you, the players. When I took on the role of Test Lead, I added in responsibility of the build quantity - I review the full process from code submission to the final build.
Emphasis is mine.

What else is he working on?

I find it absolutely astonishing that this is even a subject we have to hope for and are not certain of.

OMG I cannot believe what I just read.

"What’s something that people don’t know about you?"

CCP Bigbird says "I'm a bit out of practice now, but I used to be an extremely fast runner."

Wow CCP Bigbird being a runner = :D

Yep, have the remastered version. They ship tactics are a little wonky at present. Sphere formation does not create an actual sphere - particularly noticeable when you tell the group to guard something.
