Elemental TD Updates

Earlier today, Blizzard posted a job posting for an Assistant Technical Designer, which is a position targeted specifically at us mod makers. From what I've gathered, the position involves working directly within the GalaxyEditor to work on Blizzard DOTA and/or the future campaigns. I know there are a lot of us Mapsters out there that meet all the requirements/plusses for the position. Anyone serious about joining the ranks of the Big Blue should certainly check out (and apply!) for this position.

Elemental TD Updates by Karawasa

Karawasa has implemented a ton of new changes his map, including mazing (allowing players to make their own paths), auto-rematching (allowing you to play multiple rounds per game without having to leave), a team mode improvements (allowing you to play with a friend in the same area), and a bunch more heroes. Check out the changes in the videos below!

    It would appear to be a position with near no true creative input, ie, being able to input some stuff but not really having any weight given on the ideas, and perhaps ending in doing more meaningless tasks than truely designing the game. This would be the very lowest entry level position I have seen posted, hence the lack of triple A title requirement. Not sure though, that is my take from it. It is a very worth while position for someone just out of college (I think? I am not too good with the US school system), who just wants to get their foot in the door and might not have enough credentials (?) to apply for a higher position.

    I have been qualified for other positions (like lead designer positions) but have chose not to apply, because of where my life is at the moment, and other projects (Tofu), I would rather finish that and apply with a stronger portfolio than try and apply with a weak portfolio, especially after 10+ years in design and knowing the importantance of a solid port.

    To anyone who cannot apply right now, there will always be more positions in the future, if you feel like your portfolio is not up to scratch, or real life iis just not in place, then it is all good, work on what needs to be done and wait for next time :)

    That sounds decent with a reasonable portfolio of "made this stuff in the editor". Good luck for anyone who applied.

    Nice job posting by Blizz... and pretty decent requirements too (ie many of their postings are like "must have 5 years on a AAA title" lol)... definitely would be a good way to get your foot in the door at Blizz for whoever wants to :)
