Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 183 called “Chumbawamba Sammiches.” We are your Blizzard Entertainment discussion podcast. The show you are about to hear was recorded on Sunday, November 19th, 2017.
On this week’s show, we quickly 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 jump into our Blizzard Entertainment discussion where we talk about subtweeting from the StarCraft team, Heroes of the Storm is just going to keep making their game, Hearthstone announces its announcement stream, should Diablo 3 go Free to Play?, Moria hits live servers, and an Overwatch Pro gets a 72 hour ban then we move onto talking about World of Warcraft. This week we talk about the Battle for Azeroth launch, World of Warcraft turns 13, and then we recap the important information from this past week’s Developer Q&A.
But no episode would be complete without us talking about another Blizzard Arcade game and this week we talk about one called _DO-OM_! And then before you know it, it’s time for us to say our weekly goodbyes.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns for the show, feel free to contact us via email at IceBox@FrozeNerdz.com. But without further ado, sit back relax and enjoy Episode 183 of the Frozen Nerdz Podcast!
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 World of Warcraft universe. We discovered a lot of salt pertaining to the upcoming changes being made to Tier Sets.
Top 5 Saltiest No Tier in Battle For Azeroth Comments
5.) this change seems designed to blow up all incentive to raid entirely.
4.) Maybe if we could return to the days in which we didn’t have four raid difficulties, it wouldn’t be so bad…
3.)This is Blizzard. They’re incredibly lazy recently and I would bet all of the gold I have on all of my toons that we will get just 1 Cloth/Leather/Mail/Plate set per tier.
2.) Adding something that nobody asked for is a bad reason to remove something nobody asked to be removed. This game has 100 problems and tier has to be near the bottom. 1.) *To hear #1, listen to this week’s episode!*
This past week, it appeared that the StarCraft team may have been casting a little shade and did some possible subtweeting about the fact that StarCraft 2 is going free to play. Some found it hilarious, others were offended. So just another day on the internet. Check out this article and the hilarious commercial today!
When a game is created, it’s normal for them to try to become the best within the current genre. And with Heroes of the Storm, that story seems no different… until they talk about the game themselves with the MOBA genre. Blizzard sits down with Polygon to talk about how they are making the best game for their community and they are happy with it’s overall performance within the genre. It’s definitely an article worth checking out!
In typical Hearthstone fashion, they made an announcement to reveal their announcement for the upcoming cards for Kobolds and Catacombs. They revealed a lot of new cards, and will be revealing more in the near future. Stay in the loop by checking on the official Blizzard announcement page here!
On this week’s show, we talk about if Diablo III should consider going free to play in a similar fashion of StarCraft II has gone? Listen to the show to find out our thoughts!
We’ve talked about it before and we can pretty much guarantee that we will be talking about it again. Toxicity in Overwatch. But it took a different approach this week when a Overwatch League Pro was given a 72 hour ban for “falsely reporting.” While on stream, he reacted very emotionally and unprofessionally. He later released an unapologetic response on Twitter. OWL Pro Félix “xQc” Lengyel, who represents the Dallas Fuel, can be seen here getting his ban. And then you can see him here reporting players for “being pieces of poo*.”
This week we discussion the following topics about World of Warcraft:
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: _DO-OM_ v0.2 Type: Other Creator: Hnry Kilroy’s Review: “The details for this game are simply put “Chumbawamba sammich” and even that would seem to make more sense than this game did, overall this is one of those games where the developer may have just been trying to make it as strange as possible and succeeding on all counts. Not even sure we were able to figure out the win condition for this game or what the objective was but that’s completely OK since we were too busy trying to figure out what was going on at all. So far may be the worst showing for us but hey they can’t all be winners.”
