This is a special report from CtR HQ all about Blizzard esports!

 

Jules Scott joins Pat Krane for a look at Blizzard esports. Inside, they preview upcoming Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone tournaments, and talk about some of the interesting matchups and other tidbits along the way.

 

Also, Jules and Pat review the first Overwatch tournament held this last weekend and how Cloud 9 has set them head and shoulders apart from their competition.

 

There are some reports out there about how professional players are leaving HotS for other, more established games. Jules gives you the scoop on the different aspects of why that might be happening.

 

It's a great mini-sode to kick off more varied content on this channel. Let us know what you think - we are listening. Email converttoraid@gmail.com or find us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/ConverttoRaid

This week, Sharku and Gizmo join the crew as we make a BIG announcement and talk about Warcraft and other Blizzard games!

 

The Warcraft movie has been released internationally, but still 10 days away from it’s launch in the U.S. How do box office numbers, internet reviews and the crew’s opinions stack up to help viewers expectations? What will be the real teller of whether or not this movie is a success?

 

Overwatch is the Blizzard’s fastest selling console game (in the UK), which shouldn’t be any surprise. The guys will go behind the numbers a bit and talk about OW’s first competitive tournament along the way. What lies in store for Blizzard’s newest game?

 

Plus, Heroes of the Storm turns 1, Hearthstone tournaments go legit, your questions and more in this first installment of The Battlenet News!

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!

This week, John Horstmann from Well Met and The Payload podcasts (at http://blizzpro.com) joins the crew with Sharku. While technical difficulties messed with the last show, there is now a veritable smorgasbord of news to discuss!

Legion, the next expansion for World of Warcraft was announced to launch on August 30, 2016. Both cheers and salt can be heard from the community, and the guys discuss their own opinions on the matter.

J. Allen Brack took to the forums to discuss the shutting down of the Nostalrius legacy servers and mentioned the idea of “pristine servers” that would, in essence, remove bonus XP and other “easy buttons” while still playing the game in its current state. Is this enough to address what Nostalrius members were after? What can Blizzard do that would make sense for both the company and the community?

Hearthstone launched its new expansion “Whispers of the Old Gods” this week. The crew talks about the cards, the expansion and more as they try to figure out the new meta.

Plus, Blizzcon tickets sell out (as always), StaCraft 2 players arrested for game fixing, the Overwatch hype train is at full speed, Diablo Season 6 hits this week, Tracer lands in the Nexus and a lot more!

Gizmo and Sharku join the crew for this week’s show filled with all sorts of amazing Blizzard news!

Blizzcon 2016 has been announced, and will be held November 4-5 in the Anaheim Convention Center. The real question is, can they fit everything in in just two days?

Mythic+ dungeons are being tested for the next expansion of World of Warcraft. Keystones will be able to make these dungeons more difficult, even adding up to two different affixes to up the ante. If these work like the developers want, could these new dungeons put raiding in jeopardy, or will they simply bolster the ranks?

Plus, competitive play comes to Overwatch, Heroes of the Dorm recap, clarification on Legion’s Class Order Missions, and a whole lot more!

Is beta coming soon and not soon™? The alpha contains almost all of the specs, and Icy-Veins is giving away beta keys to celebrate their 5 year anniversary this month. Could beta be available in the next few weeks, and what might that do for timing of Legion overall?

BattleNet Voice is coming to the launcher and is currently in alpha. Soon you’ll be able to text and voice chat with your friends and guildies across all of the Blizzard games. The guys talk about all of the features and how Blizzard needs to develop it further to make it a more meaningful experience for everyone.

This week Gizmo and Sharku join the crew for WoW talk and more!

It’s a quiet week on the live servers, but the alpha is still humming along. The guys will share a little bit about what they’ve been playing lately, especially BM Hunters. Plus Pat shares the details for the Minnesota Warcraft Movie Meetup in June!

In the meantime, how about a good read? The book Warcraft Chronicle Vol. 1 comes out next week (March 15), and Pat Krane somehow managed to get an advanced copy. He’ll give you the rundown, mixing up names and lore along the way.

Overwatch’s release date is set for May 24, with an OPEN BETA earlier that month. The guys will give you the details as they get pumped up to play with everyone.

WoW bosses collide on Twitter and Facebook to find out who is the biggest baddie of them all in March Badness! Which of the Hateful Eight is your pick?

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!

The EU took the prize for the Legion Dungeon Race this last week, though the big winners were the fans. Not only did they get to see some different strategies, but also got to take a look at the Maw of Souls dungeon -- an amazing instance that may require dramamine!

 

Class Order Halls got an update in the alpha, with the new mission table. Will this manage to be everything the developers hoped would become of garrisons, and what will this mean for players as they explore the new zones?

 

Also, the Q4 earnings call, trinkets will be getting a makeover for 7.0, Turretwatch is the meta since Overwatch beta came back, and Heroes of the Storm keeps getting retuned. All that and more in another fun filled show!

While WoW "news" is pretty quiet, there's plenty to discuss about the Legion alpha. New dungeons and a few different specs were released into the alpha servers, and the guys go over what they've been doing recently. Plus, a great listener question about gameplay for tanks!

In the Battlenet News, Hearthstone will be releasing a new way to challenge others with Standard Play - where you can only play the more recent cards. But don't worry, Wild play will have all of your favorites.

Heroes of the Storm welcome Li Ming to the Nexus. This glass cannon is bound to be a blast to play - just don't get too close to the fight!

Elemental and enhancement shaman are a part of that, as well as the shaman class hall. The guys give you their experiences so far, and try not to give any story spoilers along the way!

ESPN announced that they will start covering eSports much more in the future, even starting their own ESPN eSports Twitter account. What does this mean for esports in general, and how might this affect Activision Blizzard as they begin to launch their own esports division?

Diablo Season 5 begins and includes a bunch of new stuff, Heroes of the Storm gets Genn Greymane, and the Heroes Spring Global Championship is announced.

Plus, the CtR Guild celebrates it's third anniversary, Pulp Fiction's producer comes to Activision Blizzard, and lots more!

It's now easier than ever to upgrade your legendary ring. Upgrades can be bought with Valor on top of Archimonde kills! But what does this mean for your average player?

Activision Blizzard scooped most of the assets from Major League Gaming before the end of 2015. What will this mean for Activision Blizzard's new eSports Division (and the possible fans at home)? Also, what steps do they need to take to become the "ESPN of eSports?"

As we head into the holidays, the guys chat a little bit more about their first impressions with the latest alpha build of Legion, the next expansion for World of Warcraft. The crew discusses the classes and specs they've played, questing zones, class halls, and more, including some minor spoilers.

The developers of Overwatch have a lot to work to do while the beta is on hiatus, including coming up with how players may progress when the game goes live. Director Jeff Kaplan revealed a couple of ideas that the crew discusses.

Heroes of the Storm has a new face in the lineup -- Lunara! Gizmo fills you in on basic playstyle of the dryad and also talks about the MMR improvements now live in the game.

A new build to the Legion alpha means that there's a lot more to see and do, including many of the intro quests for the Artifact Weapon, the Highmountain questing zone, new dungeons, and possibly even the pre-expansion event. While we try not to spoil the story too much for you, expect there to be talk about questing, class mechanics and more.

The guys will tell you what they've experienced, their first impressions, and some of the changes you might expect as it's laid out right now. Of course this is early in its development (so things will be changing), but there are some impressive things to discuss!

This week, there's a lot more information being data mined in the Legion beta build, including a list of LEGENDARY ITEMS as well as Artifact Weapon talents!

The list of Legendaries is quite long (56 at current count), and is split up between different roles, classes and specs. The guys go over what we know about them -- which isn't a lot -- and how we'd like them to be for Legion. What makes an item Legendary? How could the developers better capture the fantasy of these items, and how will these items affect players both personally and as part of a raid team?

With many (but not all) of the Artifact Weapon talents now data mined in their very early stages, what do we see? How do these talents feel when it comes to basic gameplay options, and what do our players hope for Legion?

This week Mick and Sharku join the CtR crew to talk about the latest Blizzard news.

Blizzard released a whole bunch of WoW on the world, opening up the Legion beta for data mining and allowing streamers, friends and family to play an alpha build!

The alpha build features the Demon Hunter and not much else, including character creation and the starting zone in Mardun. It's a throwback to Outland and has a familiar feel for those that have played through The Burning Crusade. This isn't much different from what they offered at Blizzcon this year, but it is something new for players to see over the long Thanksgiving weekend.

Meanwhile, beta data has exploded all over the internet, with tons of new items, spells, talents, strings, and more... all without anyone being able to play it. While there's a lot of information out there, players still don't know exactly how the game will feel. And while much of this initial build may change during the beta process, the CtR crew give an overview of the new talents systems (for both PvE and PvP), scenarios and more.

Plus Moose Mounts, that Fel Reaver noise, Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm news, your questions and lots of laughs. Enjoy!

While there may be some concerns from players about how these will eventually play on live servers, the developers put forth strong class fantasies as their guide moving forward.
