Platform Nation: For most people, this is pretty insignificant news, though its implications dig pretty deep. I mean, how could it not? This is Blizzard we’re talking about here. Bashiok, aka Micah Whipple, has been a longstanding community manager for Blizzard, formerly as Drysc for World of Warcraft before moving over to Diablo III and changing his handle. It made sense for Blizzard. Diablo III was their big release for 2012 (and possibly for the foreseeable future), so why not move over one of the big names from World Of Warcraft‘s award-winning community management team to oversee the new release?
