You are already devoted to the game and know every bit of it? Now we think it is time that you get to know the team a little better. So every once in a while we will introduce you to one of the people behind Heroes & Generals. This time around you better keep an eye on your sugary treats or Reto.Splixxen might eat them.
What’s the story of the tag?
The full story behind it is an almost well-kept secret! But I can reveal it has something to do with Scrabble.
What is your position and what does that mean?
Head of QA/Test and Support.
I run around and poke Devs with a stick while I crack the whip above the heads of the QA/Testers and Support people…
I make sure the Testers/QA guys know what to test, how to test, got the needed information, etc.
I’m responsible for making sure the Support is running smooth and that they’re able to give the needed help to our players. I also handle the QA regarding new features and coordinate the bug status of all features and updates as well as pass all the feedback issues from the players on to the responsible Dev – along with a bunch of other random stuff.
What was the best thing to work on so far?
The implementation of the 3rd faction (SU).
What are you excited about in the future?
I’m not allowed to talk about that feature yet 😉
Edit: The recon update and leaderboards (Still in early design and late design).
What did you do before Reto?
Worked with Software Testing, Support and Training along with an education in IT-Administration.
Spent most of my youth working with “mischievous” software and exploits in games (Which I’m now battling against instead ;)).
What is the best thing about working at Reto?
It’s working with what I love and being around awesome and talented people.
What is your favourite thing about H&G?
That it offers different options of gameplay, from tank play or CQC Infantry gameplay. Not to mention the RTS tie to the FPS part of the game.
Instead of just a normal shooter that resets after each game.
What are your hobbies?
Consuming anything with sugar, playing PC games, watching movies.. chill.
Favourite Games/Games that inspired you to have a career in games?
Bloodwych, Quake 1, Ultima Online, Elder Scrolls, Heroes of Might & Magic 3, Diablo 1+2, Warcraft (Dota), Conker’s Bad Fur Day, the list goes on
What are your favourite films, books and music?
Films: Dogma, Swordfish, Blade Runner, The Shawshank Redemption, Aliens and many more..
Books: Elminster series, Game of Thrones, American Psycho.
Music: Death metal, Classical, Industrial Techno, Rock, Trance..everything but RNB.
