Monte Krol is a Blizzard Entertainment employee that has worked as a tool programmer and voice actor since Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos throughout World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, where he now works as the lead tools programmer.
He was born on Chicago. He is a lifelong video game player, he started playing on Atari and learned to program pretty early on. He got a degree in computer engineering and went to work writting software but his life's passion was the video games, then he worked in a company called Game Refuge but later on he applied for a job with Blizzard because he very much liked the games of Starcraft and Diablo.
Lead Tools ProgrammerEdit
He and his staff members build the programs that the rest of the team uses to build WoW, there are couple different kinds of programs but the one that has the most people dedicated full time to it is WoW Edit. He and his staff also try to make things easier to the designers, so that they can be more efficient. Their principal downside, like in all software developments, are the bugs.
- He does some goblin voices; in World of Warcraft he voiced the goblin that sounds really nuts.
- His most most challenging task at work is taking over the tools team and being in charge of WoW Edit.
