The team at ReedPop (who helm the PAX-series conventions) have announced that the game director of Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft, Ion Hazzikostas, will deliver the opening “Storytime” keynote at PAX West 2018.
Known by the nickname “Watcher” among the WoW® community, Hazzikostas joined Blizzard in 2008, leaving behind a career in law to become a designer on Blizzard’s popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game. His first responsibilities included designing raid encounters, balancing classes, and maintaining the achievement system for the 2008 expansion Wrath of the Lich King®, and he ultimately leveled up to become game director in 2016. Hazzikostas is currently helming the development of the Battle for Azeroth™expansion
PAX West 2018 is taking place at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, WA between Aug. 31 and Sept. 3, 2018 and while official ticket sales are almost out, secondary markets like Reddit’s /r/PAXPassExchange may be an option if you still need a ticket.
