I think it is safe to say that Blizzard employees read AJ so, thank you Blizzard for employing/promoting someone who actually does his job right. Hopefully GC won't have be involved in decision soon so Holinka can improve PvP even more.

There are still many who don't know his twitter or don't even have an account to tweet at him, I encourage you to do so since he actually replies to most tweets and unlike GC he actually says things that make sense.

Update:
I found more information regarding Holinka! You can find out more about him on his LinkedIn profile here:

Prior to working for Blizzard he seems to have been working on a game called Transformer: Fall of Cybertron. I've never heard about that game personally. The company only had 200 employees it seems.
And before that he was a Senior Game Designer at THQ. Pretty interesting!

I just saw that GC has 40k followers whereas Holinka only has 1500. We should all follow him to show our support!

PvP will be in a lot better condition come a few months time. Not to mention new arenas, and no doubt skirmishes will be back. Despite them not being competitive, I could queue skirmish all day with randoms :D that was the funnest part of my wow life :<

Got to remember it was most likely GC's choice to hire him in the first place, if so credit to GC :P

I don't see why Holinka wouldn't create an account here.

The previous Warlock developer (Xelnath) was actively posting on mmo-champion class forums.

Holinka is obviously very active and wants to be involved in the community, so why not?

He got fired over a dispute about that useless "Cataclysm" spell they wanted to implement for Destro.

Nice to have someone focusing on only PvP, makes it easier for us to give better feedback and get the changes we wish for.
