This week we talk about the 5 million gold mount, and the recent Jaina comic!
But no episode would be complete without us talking about a Blizzard Arcade game and this week we are talking about one called Endurance! And then before you know it, it’s time for us to say our weekly goodbyes.
And then for our Patrons, we talk about the future of the StarCade, teabaggers in Overwatch, and those that press Q.

When it comes to esports, a lot of time the success is measured by what we can see: the number of viewers. Recently, Fortnite came onto the scene as one of the hottest games and this past week Epic Games announced that they are going to be funneling $100 million into their future esports prize pools. But before any of that even happened, Mark Cuban, owner of the NBA team the Dallas Mavericks, spoke out saying that he’s questioning the success of the Overwatch League and believes that Fortnite is pulling away the viewers. But is that really true? Find out our thoughts on this week’s show!
With recent changes to a group of cards within Hearthstone, players have had to make major adjustments to their decks. Find out how our decks are surviving and if we have had to make any adjustments.
Last week on the show we discussed the possibility of Sombra coming to the Nexus, and the most recent event called, “Nexomania” all things point at it being the prefect time for her to hack her way into the Nexus. But before any of that can happen, we must all step into the ring and see who the next challenger is! Check out the new seasonal event skins for Lunara, Diablo, Sonya, Garrosh, and much much more! Check out all the details here.

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: Endurance v1.1 Type: Strategy Creator: XDarkEndX Details: The map is designed for two players. Six enemy forces lie along the map from east to west. As the mission continues, each enemy force activated over time with increasingly higher difficulty levels set to their AI script. The players have the objectives of defeating all enemy forces. Kilroy’s Review: “I was excited for this map it even said it had AI scripts in it so it had to be good right? Well I guess by AI they meant gatherers collecting resources waiting for you to come and kick their heads in. But since the name of the map was endurance it was best to make it a good show and take over the whole map and consume all of the resources before realizing that even if you kill all of the AI forces there is no win condition and you basically are just stuck waiting for a win screen that will never come… sad day.”
