Each and every week we scour news articles and Blue posts looking for this week’s Top 5 list! This week our Top 5 List comes from the <Insert Game Here> universe. We discovered a lot of salt pertaining to the World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth pre-purchase.

Top 5 Battle for Azeroth Pre-Order Salt

5.)  So even if you don’t want to buy , you still cant log on and play your toons seriously ? When I log on my toons are all gone WTH?
4.) They should change the title of this to “Pre-purchase Battle for Azeroth now! Or in a few days when our systems function correctly!”
3.) Of course the Allied races would be gated behind achievement grinds. Blizzard, I love World of Warcraft and have played since 2005. But back then grinding was possible because all I had to do was get up, go to school, come home and play.
2.) Hey, any chance I can pre-purchase BEING ABLE TO LOG INTO THE GAME?
1.) *To hear #1, listen to this week’s episode!*

The Mercy nerfs are upon us! HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS! Not only did they once again change her resurrection, but they also made it so that if you do resurrection someone, you instantly die. And respawn as Reinhardt. Okay, that’s not what actually happens, but it feels like it! And they also changed Junkrat, but it doesn’t really make a major impact to those who play at a higher level than Epic! Find out more about the communities reaction here! 

The Overwatch Year of the Dog event is coming on February 8th! In typical Overwatch fashion, we know nothing about the even besides the start date! Find out that and more here!

This week we discussion the following topics about World of Warcraft:

1.)  The Battle for Azeroth Pre-Purchase are now live!
2.) The First ever Battle for Azeroth Developer Q&A has taken place. Heres the recap!

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: The Pirate Wars v0.10
Type:  Other
Creator: SpctrLament
Kilroy’s Review: “This is an island hopping game of Piracy and conquest,  Take out your opponents by growing your economy from taking over islands and developing the ultimate pirate fleet of all time.  Overall this is one of those games that has a lot of time placed into it and development is exceptional.  The Ai in the game works kinda however mostly in dealing with avoiding the navy to keep your pirate ambitions afloat.  A solid and well thought out addition to the Starcade and a worthwhile game to play.”
