Welcome to the Frozen Nerdz Podcast Episode 242 called “Insane World First Preparation.” We are your Blizzard Entertainment discussion podcast. The show you are about to hear was recorded on Sunday, February 10th, 2019.
On this week’s show, we start off by talking about our past weeks in video games, and then we jump right into talking about our Blizzard Entertainment discussion topics. This week we kick it off by talking about what’s going on in the Rumor Mill this week, than we move onto talking about Overwatch League Scrims, Jaina getting buffed in Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm rolls out upcoming currency changes, and then we talk about GOATS and Overwatch. Then we wrap up the show by talking about LFR Wing 2 for Battle of Dazar’alor, how we think the world bosses could use a buff, and the insane preparation that Method did to secure Mythic World First!
But 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 242 of the Frozen Nerdz Podcast!
DRAMA ALERT!!!! The Rumor Mill has been in full effect since BlizzCon, and it’s back at it again this week. The Bloomberg website released an article discussing a leaked layoff coming to Activision Blizzard. Normally, we link to articles so you can read it for yourself, but companies shouldn’t benefit off of scare tactics, or rumor producing articles. When it’s all said and done, it’s sad no matter who or if anyone loses their job over at Activision Blizzard.
This past week, the Overwatch League Season 2 kicked off it’s Community Countdown to Season 2 by having some Practice Scrimmages. But the community didn’t enjoy it that they didn’t get high octane play from the Pros who decided to play other heroes instead of their mains. Does this fall on the marketing team of their advertising or does it fall on the community for over speculating what “Practice Scrimmage” means?
The Hearthstone subreddit is up in arms this past week since Blizzard snuck in a wardrobe change for Jaina’s artwork for her hero icon in-game! Check it all out for yourself!
When 2019 started, we never thought we would see major changes coming to Heroes of the Storm. But this past week, they hit the ground running with changes coming to a few areas of the game that the community has been requesting for awhile: “all skins in the Collection will be purchasable individually with Gems,” “every skin in the Collection will now have a Gem and Shard price” and “allowing players to convert their earned Gold to Shards.” Check out all the projected changes for yourself here!
