Stay for the exciting 50th episode contest announcement toward the end!

JB flying solo this week because Sarah has holiday prep to take care of and Christi's voice is shot.

Episode 46 - BlizzCon 2017 Predictions

We start off talking about the end of the Halloween Terror event then suddenly realize it's the show before BlizzCon! After covering the gist of many of the topics we switch to our predictions for BizzCon 2017.

Episode 45 - Have Mercy!

Episode 45 - Have Mercy!

Is Mercy a must-have following the changes? We feel like that's true. And what are these rumors of changes to Genji and Junkrat on the PTR? We once again discuss the downside of making rapid changes. We also dig into the Halloween event, what Mei's skin is all about (jiangshi from Chinese mythology), and Mercy concept art!

Episode 39 - Doofid's Gauntlet

We're only one episode away from 40! Doomfist released, lootboxes are vastly improved, and there are a ton of other updates in this release we talk about. And is it better to specialize or be a jack of all trades?

Episode 38 - Live From Crab Land

The Meat

  • Update to Blizzard launcher - cool little icons and collapsible sidebar.
  • Doomfist releases on 7/27 - that’s a Thursday! Weird.
    • Complaints about him just saying his move: the guys said that this is their homage to the fighting genre. They always do this.
  • New comic about Doomfist - if you haven’t read it via Madefire, you’re missing out. 
    • The question of whether or not Reaper got anything from the database in the Winston animated short has been answered: YES
    • Someone named Maximilien who is apparently tough to talk to because Reaper asks him if he needs a loan. Turns out he’s an omnic who is part of Talon. What is the symbol on his coat?
    • French translations:
      • “Do you want to roll the dice, madam?”
      • Thank you.
      • The stakes are set, the die is cast. (Idiomatically, means “things have reached an irreversible point. You can’t go back.”
      • The pleasure is mine.
      • My compliments.
      • Seven! (A lucky number in craps)
      • Place your bets
      • Next player.
      • No!
    • Someone named Vialli
      • We assume it’s the guy Doomfist meets on the roof.
      • He’s been running Talon.
      • Seems to want to eliminate the combined leadership
    • How quickly will the Masquerade costumes become skins?
  • Summer Games - will they happen again?
  • Confirmed: Dustin from Stranger Things mains D.Va
  • Lootbox drop rates revealed (These are current, not PTR rates)
  • Follow-up: SR penalties for switching roles.

Episode 36 - Loots Not Dupes

 

The Meat

  • Dev Update: https://youtu.be/OkYJlPMdWNA 
  • Happened the day after we recorded the last show. Argh!!
  • Saving highlights!
  • Lootbox changes! Because what they gave you for dupes was as criminally low as what GameStop gives you when they buy your used games!
  • PTR “leak” of Doomfist and upcoming Summer Games event. Thoughts?
  • Dave’s glass ceiling - “I’ve kind of finished the game.”
  • What he wants: something more like MMO content. It probably was Titan.
