Just a bit late with reposting that one. As far as how he still has a job... he's the boss.

He's the boss. He has a team. I'd assume there's a couple of people at LEAST assigned to each class. He doesn't need to be intimately familiar with every ability.

When they run things by him, people probably go "We have this ability, which is similar to these from other classes. It's performing better/worse in general though because of (random reason here), so we think to balance it out by doing (random nerf/buff here.) Seem good?" then in to a what if/how scenario.

As far as I've heard, most of his work isn't directly related to the game balance.
It's just what people b**** and moan about to him the most.

Nay. Having people on a certain class tends to make them a bit biased. The whole team works on all classes together, and everyone's aware of what's going on with all of 'em.

What is most of his work or even his job title? I'm curious because he is the most well known employee there.

He's the "Lead System Designer." From everything I'd heard, he basically oversees certain game-related teams and deals with game engine issues.

Basically, he's the guy that can call in for lazy people to be fired, and makes sure the game doesn't explode.

Of course, I have no genuine idea and this is simply what I'd heard, so I could be horribly wrong.
