Convert to Raid Presents: The podcast for World of Warcraft and other Blizzard Games!

For videos, audios, and all things CtR, join us online at http://converttoraid.com

 

John Horstmann and Sharku join the crew for this week’s show (mainly on Overwatch).

 

Overwatch went live this week, so the guys jump straight into the Battlenet News for stories surrounding the launch. The joys, the salt, and the community interest in this fantastic game have been incredible over the last few days, so the crew dives in to discuss many different aspects of Overwatch.

 

Since the last CtR, World of Warcraft’s next expansion has gone into beta development, allowing even more people to see what’s in store for Legion. While this episode doesn’t go into any depth on the gameplay, the guys are planning future shows as we head toward the August 30th launch.

 

One item did stick out this last week, as Ion “Watcher” Hazzikostas took to the forums in another Developer Watercooler discussion on PvP gear in Legion. Instead of resilience or PvP Power, the devs are making PvE gear and PvP gear THE SAME. How will this affect those who have chosen one aspect over the other, or does it even matter? Will this finally help WoW PvP stand on even footing with raiding?

 

Plus the Warcraft movie hype is real, Chromie lands in the Nexus, and Diablo 3 turns 4 and more!

This week, Pat and Dairies are joined by Tovo and Sharku to talk WoW and ALL THE GAMES.

 

Ion “Watcher” Hazzikostas, Lead Game Developer for World of Warcraft, talked with Jesse Cox on Twitch. In it, he announced that Legion alpha is over, and that the beta will begin this week! He also discussed questing, the leveling experience, Mythic+ dungeons and more. The crew takes a look at the interview and puts their own spins on how Legion is shaping up for the late August release.

 

Plus, Overwatch beta ends, StarCraft 2’s patch 3.3 is coming soon with some new features, Heroes of the Storm will revamp ranked play, and a whole lot more in this jam packed show!

This week, Pat and Dairies are joined by Gizmo and Mick for a ton of Blizzard talk!

We’ve got a glimpse into how flying will be rolled out for Legion, so let the salt start… flying! Blizzard released Part One of the achievements needed to take to the skies of The Broken Isles, and they include completing all story quests and exploring every part of the new continent. Are there concerns amongst the players, and how have the developers responded?

Overwatch open beta starts this week, with early entry for pre-orders already underway. We’ll get the insight from both new and veteran players to see how this game is shaping up before the official release on May 24th!

Heroes of the Storm will allow coaches in comms for the Summer Championship. How will this change the game, and is this the right timing for a move like this?

Plus, Diablo Season 6, a DARGON will land in the Nexus, Blizzcon tickets, the Warcraft movie and much more!
