Overview: A game development team is a lot like a party running a dungeon. You've got your production tank who draws aggro, your DPS Devs spinning out content, but what about your support class? This is where embedded QA comes in. Embedded QA are fully geared up members of the team ready to provide buffs and monitor the party's health. BioWare QA has invested in its internal QA analysts, embedding them directly in the teams they support to help them deliver some of the most ambitiously scoped out titles time after time. Like finding the perfect build for your class, it is an ongoing process and BioWare would like to share it with other teams looking to make more out of their QA.
