Wasn't this the guy who was in charge of balancing the classes in classic and TBC? the one who forced any hybrid to have to heal to be effective end-game and make warriors supper powerful because he felt like it? Forgive if I'm wrong, exaggerating or being stupid but Why blizzard would want to keep a man employed that balanced classes for himself rather than the playerbase?

In the video, he tells you the nature of his job and it's possibly worth repeating. He's not "hands on" in anyway, due to his seniority he spends the majority of his time talking to departmental heads of various design teams, quality assurance and public relations. His role is to understood the information they give to him, prioritise that information and then give every team some direction.While it is theoretically possible for him to set his own special agenda, it would be very hard for him to do this whilst making it look like it the requests of various departments and not raising any suspicions. If all the departments that report to him felt said he was ignoring the feedback they sent to him, he would fired.Whether you trust the guy or not, you would have to admit that it would be very difficult, and so very unlikely, that he "forced" particular design choices because he simply felt like it.
