Episode 195 – “Green Boots”

Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 195 called “Green Boots.” We are your Blizzard Entertainment discussion podcast. The show you are about to hear was recorded on Sunday, February 25th, 2018.

On this week’s show, we quickly go over our past week in video games before we move onto Blizzard Entertainment discussion. This week we talk about the introduction of Voice Chat into Heroes of the Storm, Wildfest coming to Hearthstone, Diablo Season 13 is here and people are salty, and then we talk about the Overwatch Puppy Rumble, get creeped out by Zenyatta walking, and then we talk about Hero 27! Then we move onto our World of Warcraft discussion. This week we talk about the Warcraft III invitational, item level and stat changes coming to Battle for Azeroth, the Uldir raid, and Legacy loot changes coming.

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

We talked about it before, but it has finally come to the Nexus! Voice chat is upon us… and the world hasn’t ended… yet! With the introduction of voice chat, Blizzard also added that they will be implementing voice silences to players who want to act a fool in voice. It works in the same fashion as in-game chat silences. It will not allow players to talk within team voice chat until their silence has run out. These are all good thing. And hopefully this helps with issues of voice chat becoming so toxic! To find out more about voice chat and their new policies, check out this article.

Also this past week, the Heroes of the Storm team sat down and did a Developer Q&A! You can check out the video here, and read the TL;DW recap here.

LET’S GET WILD! The Hearthstone Wildfest is upon us! Wildfest, which runs from today through March 11, introduces the Wild Arena, and two Wild Tavern Brawls! But why Wildfest? Listen to our conversation to find out our thoughts on this topic. You can find out more about Wildfest here.

The latest Diablo Season 13 is upon us! With it’s launch this past Friday, players have dove headfirst into the new season in search for the latest gear updates and to push rank, but is that enough for the Diablo community? Based on our weekly saltiest top 5, we talk about just that! Check out what’s been added to this season of Diablo here.

Overwatch News Banner

We talked about it last week, and on Monday this past week it went live and the whole internet became obsessed with Overwatch themed puppy wear! The Overwatch Puppy Rumble showcased three different no kill animal rescue shelters across the United States. All the dogs that were shown during the event were available for adoption, and within the first 15 mins all of them had been adopted. It was a great opportunity for Blizzard to show off how awesome their communities can be. Check out the VOD here, and check out the Puppy Rumble website here.

The Overwatch community asked for it at the start of Overwatch League Stage 2, and they responded. They asked for Zen to walk… and then things got creepy… Check out the video here.

The world could always use more heroes…. And it appears that Hero 27 is upon us! We aren’t 100% who will be announced at the time of recording, but we have a pretty good idea. Check out the official announcements here, and then read up on some of the Reddit discussion here.

2.) Battle for Azeroth Item Level and stat Scaling

Game: Bacteria Invasion v4.24

Kilroy’s Review:  “Play as a virus infecting the body in this hilarious and fun Starcade game.  Your goal as a virus is to infect healthy cells which are vespene geysers,  don’t go too fast otherwise the body will react and send more white blood cells your way.  You have limited time to cause serious damage to the body and win the game which can be a challenge.  A totally fantastic style of game and caught us by complete surprise we lost track of time playing this game.”
