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 Tattva joins the crew for WoW talk and more!

 

Not only is there a bunch of new stuff in the latest build of the Legion alpha like dungeons and hunter pets, there’s also more information on how legendaries will work (or more importantly NOT work) in the next expansion. Will these changes help make the raiding race more fair?

 

Other big news that just dropped is about how mounts effect the leveling experience. In the next expansion you will not be able to rely on your Water Strider mount to help you stay above the fray, as they will only work in previous content. More inside.

 

Plus, the history of Warcraft in book form, Overwatch and Heroes news, and much more in this fun episode!

This week, the CtR crew dig in to patch 6.1 and cover Blizzard’s recent Q&A on Twitch!

Patch 6.1 dropped on Tuesday, and now we ask whether or not everything has lived up to the hype. Have items like the SELFIE camera and garrison jukebox been good things overall, or are these just small quality of life improvements?

Lead Game Designer Ion Hazzikostas and Community Manager Josh Allen (a.k.a. Lore) took to Twitch this week to talk about dungeons and raids in World of Warcraft. A lot of ground was covered, from how many raid tiers we can expect this expansion to personal loot changes, a “Timewalking” feature and more. The crew will run through some of the most notable A’s to your Q’s and have a bunch of fun along the way.

 

Plus a neutral panda is about to hit level 100, more news from the race to world first, and more!

This week the CtR crew returns for another fun filled show!

The Heart of the Valorous goes live again, but why did Blizzard only make it available over a weekend and not during the rest of the week? And will valor caps increase any time soon so that we can upgrade more than one piece of armor per week?

Warlords beta patch notes have been released! The crew gives you some of the highlights and tries to calm you down as the game continues to be developed. The guys also discuss the feedback process for all of these changes and how that works with the communication from Blizzard to its players.

Want to know more about how your Garrison will work in Warlords? Wowhead.com recently posted all of their datamined information about garrisons, including an in depth look at the buildings that you’ll be able to choose from. How will these buildings help your gameplay? Are there any overpowered perks from these buildings? Find out inside!

Also, Rob Pardo, Chief Creative Director for Blizzard Entertainment, is leaving the company after 17 years. Where he’ll be moving to and why he is leaving are still unanswered. But while Pardo leaves the building, Mike Morhaime answered an open letter about (the lack of diversity) in Blizzard games. Is there a tie between the two?

 

Plus, leading the raid for mythic teams in Warlords, pre-release reviews, beta blues and Pat makes some BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS!
