Team 1 is a designation for one of the internal development teams of Blizzard Entertainment.

Team 1's existence (in terms of staff, the name was coined much later)[1] stems back to at least 1994. It is primarily concerned with box products. The original StarCraft was produced by Team 1.[2] They subsequently worked on Warcraft III.[3] More recent products include StarCraft II and Heroes of the Storm.[2]

As far as StarCraft II goes, Team 1 is divided into at least two sub-teams. One focuses entirely on e-sports and multiplayer. The other is focused on singleplayer. Other team members also work on the Arcade.[4]
