Kent-Erik Hagman was a Hero Designer at Blizzard Entertainment.
Background[edit | edit source]
Kent-Erik works on taking iconic characters from the company's library of games and turning them into playable characters for Heroes of the Storm. While he primarily spends his days designing new heroes, he also helps shape talent trees and contributes to testing and refining older characters.
Hagman joined Blizzard Entertainment in 2011 as an online systems designer on the Battle.net team, working on features for Diablo III and the Battle.net client. When the opportunity arose, he took on the challenge of creating the original tutorial and new player experience for Heroes of the Storm, then transitioning to map and battleground design before shifting his focus full-time to character design.
Kent-Erik is an avid Blizzard gamer who spends many hours ranking up in Hearthstone and racking up Conquests on his Diablo III hardcore characters. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Sciences and Engineering from the University of Florida.
