Blaine Christine describes his role as Live Producer of TOR in this week’s Friday Update.  “As Live Producer,” says Blaine, “I work with the development team to ensure that anything released to our fans (read – you!) meets the quality standards that are so important to any BioWare product.”  In the jovial bantering tone we are used to seeing from him, Blaine goes on to explain his oversight of game testing and managing the feedback of the testers.  He also mentions his work with the Live Services group and how they are focused on preparing for a successful launch.  Read the full article, plus several rousing testimonials from game testers, on the official site here.
