This past week, the Heroes of the Storm team teased us with a new upcoming hero that’s making their way to the Nexus! It was revealed on Facebook that Zul’jin will be trolling the Nexus here shortly. He may not be troll that everyone was looking for, but his berserk melee play style will be a awesome addition to the hero line up! To learn more about him, check out the reveal here.
It’s a Christmas Miracle! The Overwatch team goes above and beyond and gives Overwatch players 5 additional Winter Wonderland loot boxes for any player who logs in between Christmas, and January 2nd, 2017! So if you want your shot at getting those amazing Winter skins for your heroes, open them before they are gone! It may be our reward for pushing over 200 million payloads since the launch of Overwatch… but that also means about 200 million payloads didn’t get delivered…
But this past week, the Overwatch art team did another comic reveal called “Reflections.” It follows the story of Tracer rushing to find the person Christmas present for her significant other, but gets side tracked saving the day! There are a lot of special surprises in this comic, that we won’t spoil it here, but you will want to check it out for yourself! Details here.
This week we discussion the following topics about World of Warcraft:
1.) Patch 7.1.5 has been added to the background downloader!
2.) Micro-holiday’s are on their way! Details here.
3.) Discussion: Weapon 35th talents are they as powerful as you would expect, should they have been unlocked closer to the final raid tier?
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: Thunderfury Blessed Blade of the Windseeker Type:Hero Battle Creator: CptnMagyar
Details: This is one of those games where your initial introduction to it is pretty much the word moopy… So once you find out that all of the How to play this game text is straight nonsense you can begin to appreciate just how silly/ fun this game is. You play as king of the Moopy’s which let’s be honest are Furlbogs or Ewoks. As their king it is your job to tactically use your random spells to heal your spawning minions and damage your opponents until their moopy king is dead. Seems easy? Well there is some serious strategy that goes into winning one of these matches, unless you play against AI which really has very little skill needed to win as there is none. Enjoyed this game despite the lack of intro and I still don’t know what a moopy is.
