The Frozen Nerdz Weekly Top 5

Our Top 5 Salties Profession Q&A comments

5.)Load of rubbish about BoS. They can be BoA and still earned by playing, which they say themselves.They have “concerns” but are refusing to do the one thing which resolves them.
4.) Don’t ask me why, but this sounded some of my alarms. I might end up waiting to see how Legion turns out, and not buying it from the start.
3.) I hope we can vendor the bloods because by the time we can make something with them, the gear will not be worth making.
2.) Holy freakin poo just make blood account wide and all the issues are fixed. How is this hard to understand?
1.) *You will have to listen to Episode 113 to find out!*
