Episode 188 – “Single Pringle”

Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 188 called “Single Pringle.” We are your Blizzard Entertainment discussion podcast. The show you are about to hear was recorded on Sunday, January 7th, 2018.

On this week’s show, we slowly go over our past week in video games before we move onto weekly Top 5 saltiest list from the World of Warcraft universe. Then we move onto our Blizzard Entertainment discussion where we talk about an ongoing StarCraft Brood War AI tournament, the 2018 StarCraft WCS schedule, the Nexus is starting to heat up, Hearthstone gives out a few card packs, then we move onto talking about Overwatch where we discuss a fan created map, Blizzard is looking to hire a vehicle engineer, Overwatch League starts this week, and then we talk about a few changes coming to Overwatch in 2018. Then we move onto our World of Warcraft discussion. This week we talk about Leeroy Jenkins, Seething Shore Battleground hits the PTR, 13th Anniversary Art Contest winners announced, and then there’s talks of the old gods returning to Azeroth.

But no episode would be complete without us talking about a Blizzard Arcade game and this week we are talking about one called Blood Bath! And then before you know it, it’s time for us to say our weekly goodbyes.

Thanks to an email from our listener Alisaunder, we were informed about an ongoing StarCraft Brood War AI tournament that will be taking place in 2018. All the matches will be live streamed on Twitch for the world to see! Just in the month of January, there will be over 6000 AI vs AI matches being streamed! Check out all the details here.

And with more hot StarCraft action, the 2018 StarCraft WCS schedule has been announced. Lots of different tournaments coming, but all roads still lead to BlizzCon 2018! Check out the whole schedule here.

Heroes of the Storm News Banner

He’s already up on the PTR, but during the Winter break the Heroes of the Storm team announced the arrival on the next Hero entering the Nexus. From the cheeky little video of him melting snow, to his spotlight video, we have a lot of hype for BLAZE the StarCraft Firebat coming to Heroes of the Storm! Will he change the landscape as we know it? Check it all out here.

Due to a recent bug with the quest system in Hearthstone, they have decided to reward all of us for our patience with THREE FREE CARD PACKS for Kobolds and Catacombs! So get them while you can, and hope you have better RNG than Epic….

Overwatch News Banner

We’ve seen some impressive fan art come out of the Overwatch universe, but now we are seeing some awesome 3D map work coming too! Check out this fan made Cairo map, you won’t regret it!

Are you great with vehicle physics and video game creation?! Blizzard may be looking for your to join their team, with a recent job posting they are looking for just that! But… what does that mean for Overwatch?! MORE MEKA’S! Check out the details here.

Overwatch League starts this week. But has the Overwatch League been hyped up enough? And did Blizzard fall short on delivering early for fans? We talk about all of that and more on this week’s show!

It wasn’t Papa Jeff sitting in from a Yule Log, but he was talking to the camera about upcoming changes for 2018 including a new hero, and more maps/skins. Check out the video today!

2.) Seething Shore Battleground hits the PTR
3.) World of Warcraft 13th Anniversary Art Content Winners announced
4.) Are the old gods making a return to Azeroth? Some PTR finding suggest so!

Each week we pick a game from the endless library of the Blizzard Arcade to test them out and help the listeners find some awesome stupidly fun games.

Game: Blood Bath (V) v1.10
Type: Action
Creator: Veyron
Kilroy’s Review: “This game is just a standard RTS map with some real close in tight quarters and limited build locations.  It was fun to play against the standard SC2 AI however as far as a breakout and new Arcade game it is not.  But this is certainly a well build player map that can be enjoyed by anyone who likes the standard RTS model of SC2.”

Final Rating (1-5): 3.5

Kilroy – 2
