Blizzard gets serious about competitive gaming

In a new job posting on Blizzard's website, the company says "The team behind Diablo I and II is looking for a skilled lead 3D level designer with experience building levels using Maya or other similar 3D level building tools. The ideal candidate has experience creating levels in a senior or lead role on a shipped game. We would also like for this candidate to have excellent analytical understanding of competitive online play with various Blizzard Entertainment games and mods (real-time strategy, World of Warcraft, Defense of the Ancients, etc.)."

Is this position to fill an existing need within World of Warcraft to incorporate more competitive gaming opportunities within WoW?  I sincerely hope Blizzard realizes WoW itself, is not the ideal competitive gaming platform.

It does sound like they are looking for a designer to lead them into a new competitive gaming endeavour.  Whether this is World of Warcraft or a yet unannounced title, has yet to be determined.
